The Weekend Review - April 1st-3rd

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, it is now being hosted by Deb at Readerbuzz.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme with a new host!  It's now being hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. This is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I'm also linking to  Stacking The Shelves which is hosted by Reading Reality.

Hi Everyone!  

Welcome to April! Time is just flying by.  

I only finished one book this week.  I'm still reading Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murderers.  What a good book this one is.  Hopefully I'll have a better reading week next week.  I have all my April books picked out, but we all know how these schedules can change.  Some of these books have been on my list before but I haven't gotten around to them yet.

I started to watch the new Kiefer Sutherland show called the Rabbit Hole.  It's really good, so far.  I think they only released two episodes so far.  It kind of reminds me of the old Mission Impossible TV series.

I hope you all have a great 1st week of April!

I'm planning to read these in April, but we all know how reading plans can change quickly.  Some of these have been on my list before...

Here are this week's Kindle freebie haul. They were freebies when I got them, I don't know if they still are. Always make sure to check they are still free before buying. The prices change quickly.  


  1. I was curious about that show! And happy April!!

  2. Some nice cozies in the mix. Mulled to Death, lol. Love that title. Happy reading this weekend. My list is up on my blog.

  3. I recently read Sutanto’s Auntie books and liked them, will probably read Vera Wong one of these days!

    best… mae at

  4. I really need to read Sally Hepworth. I was supposed to go and see her at an event at my local library recently but it was cancelled! Unfortunately I can't go to the rescheduled event.

    Have a great reading week!

  5. I'll have to check out Rabbit Hole, We love Keifer!

  6. I looked for Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murderers today, and requested it from my library. It sounds like fun.

    You've reminded me that I need to go through and choose what I hope to read in April.

  7. I've been reading a lot lately but a lot of magical realism and paranormal fiction.

  8. I have the Vera Wong book on my shelf to read! Glad to hear that it is good!

  9. I have Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murderers on my TBR shelf. It sounds like a fun read. Have a wonderful day 😊

  10. Nice book haul. I have made a list of books to read in April as well, and like you, some have been on my list before, LOL! Good luck to both of us :)

  11. Vera Wong's Unsolicited Advice for Murderers sounds like a fun read - glad you are enjoying it. Laughing about your description of reading plans... I usually just call plans "possibilities" because they change so frequently!

  12. I love the cover of the Meyer, Rafferty, and Novak books.

  13. Finishing one book a week is about average for me. I didn't finish any last week. I always forget to link up with The Book Date on Mondays. I need to start remembering to do that! Have a great week. :)

  14. I've got Soulmate on my April list too. I meant to read it in March, but...... Hope you have a terrific week.

  17. Oooh! I need to check out Rabbit Hole! Hope you have a great week!
