The Weekend Review - September 23rd-25th

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!  

I can't believe it's the last week of September already.  I'm finding it a little easier to concentrate on reading lately.  I finished three books this week.  That's much better than what I was doing before.  

I had a CT scan earlier this week and next week I see a new specialist.  I'll know more what's going on with me then.  

I haven't been doing too much TV watching.  Although, we've been binging on old episodes of Outer Limits.  I haven't seen all these episodes before, so they are "new-to-me".  

The temps are starting to get cooler here.  Or at least the humidity is less than it was.  Depending on the outcome of my doctor's visit, maybe I can even start walking again and listening to audiobooks.  

So, how has your week been?  Read or see anything good?  I hope you all have a great week!

Nothing this week!

I'm currently reading...

I finished reading ...

These are the books I have left for September.  I think they will be carryovers to October.  I still have to put together my October list.

Here is 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. Hope you are able to get some answers from the doctor this week. Glad you are able to concentrate on reading again.

  2. I hope you get some good news from the specialist, and you have a great week :)

  3. The Outer Limits sounds fun! I haven't seen that show in years. I hope your test results/ specialist visit goes well.

    Have a great rest of your weekend!

  4. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better and are enjoying your books and shows again! I'll keep my fingers crossed for your doctor's visit, I hope there'll be good and useful news! The humidity seems to have dropped here a bit as well, so I'm breathing a sigh of relief. I hope you have a lovely week :)

  9. crossing my fingers and toes that you get great news.

    my sunday post:

  10. I'm glad you are feeling better and hope the specialist is able to give you answers. I didn't get out and walk as much as I would have liked this week either. I hope you have another great week of reading!

  11. Our weather is a little better, but the mosquitoes are wild! We can't win for losing over here. Lol. At least we can use bug spray though and still get out.

    Good luck with the doctor's visit!

  12. It's good you are looking into things and figuring it out. I hope you get some answers and are able to start walking and listening to audio again. The cooler temps should help and lower humidity.

  13. Hope your results are great and glad you were able to read more. Have a great week!

  14. I can't believe it's the last week of September too. For us it's still super hot but hoping we get some cool weather sooner. Wishing you the best luck with your doctor appointment!

  15. I pray you get good answers and if needed, a treatment plan. Not being able to read as much as you want can be the pits.

  16. I hope the visit with the specialist goes well and you are able to go for walks again very soon

  17. We are still binge watching Stranger Things. I hope your appointment goes well so you can start walking again. XO

  18. I'm glad to know you've been able to concentrate on reading more lately. That's a good sign! I hope to get back into my walking routine on a regular basis too. I hope all goes well for you this week. :-)

  19. Hope Doctor visit goes well and you get some answers that will help. I'd say temps cooling and humidity dropping must be a plus.

  20. So glad to hear you're up to more reading. Continuing to keep you up in prayer. Loving the Christmas books on your list. Hope you enjoy them.

  21. I hope you get good news from your doctor. Looks like you read some good books too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  22. Hope the results of the CT scan are all good. It been raining here 3 days straight.

  23. I did Secrets of the Spell room last week, excellent cozy!!

  24. Shocked has such a fantastic cover. I'm glad you are feeling like reading again and hope the doc has some answers for you.
