The Weekend Review - April 13th-15th

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'm sorry - I sort of vanished for the last week or so.  We went on a cruise to get away from it all.  I needed to get my head clear of all my medical issues, plus it was my husband's birthday.  What better way to celebrate?  Anyway, I completely unplugged from social media but I'm back now.  Although, I'm posting this a little later than usual.

I managed to read three books while I was away.  None of the books were ones I planned on reading.  I just needed a break from deadline reading but I'll be back on schedule soon enough.

I'm completely behind on my TV show viewing, but that's alright.  I'll catch up at some point.  I'll also catch up on my blogging soon.  

I hope you all had a great week and have a great upcoming week!

I'm currently reading...

I finished reading ...

These books are still on my list for April.  I doubt I'll be able to read them all, but I'll give it a try.

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. I was thinking about you while you were away. I'm glad you were away for a positive reason. Good that you were able to escape for a while. Have a great week! :)

  2. I’m glad you were able to relax, recharge and rejoice on your cruise!

    Have a happy reading week

  3. It’s great that you had fun on a cruise and got away from your obligations, but it’s sad that you see reading as an obligation to get away from!
    I think reading should always be a pleasure.

    best, mae at

  9. Yvonne so good you got away for a little while and reading that was not deadline reading was such a great idea. It's surprising how good it can be.

  10. I hope you had a wonderful break, it was well deserved.

    Tell your sweetheart I wish him many happy returns of the day.

  11. I hope you had a great time on the cruise, Yvonne. Time away from everything sounds so nice! I hope you have a great week!
