The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
Good morning all. I hope you are having a nice weekend. It has been hot and humid here, on 4th of July the temps hit 90. I prefer this over the bitter cold winter though.
It has been a busy few weeks. I recently got back from vacation. I relished being on vacation. It is always hard getting back to work after time off but that’s life. I mainly did this by the lake for a week:
I’ll share a few more pics at the end of this post.
Onto my updates….
Recently on the Blog:
I read and reviewed 3 books these past 2 weeks, that’s alot for me:
In My Mailbox:
The Romanov Empress: A Novel of Tsarina Maria Feodorovna by C. W. Gortner arrived via LibraryThing early reviewers. I’ve read this author before so I am excited about this one. Oh my gosh, this cover is gorgeous.
The East End by Jason Allen, The Summer Cottage by Viola Shipman and In at the Deep End by Kate Davies all arrived via AmazonVine because I have zero self control. The Kept Woman: A Novel (Will Trent Book 8) by Karin Slaughter I found through AmazonPrime. I’ve read her before and she’s a favorite in this genre.
The 3rd in the Alex Cross series, Jack & Jill. I really enjoyed the first two in this series.
Toy Story 4 was fantastic and cute and funny but I wish Buzz had more film time. I recently saw Annabelle Comes Home at the theater, very scary with alot of jump scares. I’m finding Big Little Lies is still juicy. Stranger Things is back and it is soooo good. I watched 3 episodes this weekend.
That wraps up my updates. How have you been? What are you watching? Reading? Crafting?
I’ll close with a few vacation pics….enjoy your week.
Quiet sunrise on the lake.
The view from the cabin. It is very peaceful here within walking distance of the water and private beach.
It rained overnight and early one morning the fog was so thick you could barely see the lake. This mist all around was hauntingly beautiful.
Pastries and morning coffee from the local bakery in town.
And last but not least my crocheting with a view from the cabin porch. It’s a sweater for Otis. I will have to have him model it and share a pic.
