Sunday Post/Mailbox Monday 5/7/23: Hello May

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…

Happy Sunday. I hope this post finds you well. We’ve had rain and cooler temps all this past week but finally this weekend it’s sunny and warmer. We spent the day yesterday at a food truck festival and the weather was great for it. There were no deep-fried Oreos or funnel cake so that was kind of a bummer but the BBQ truck we ate from was pretty good. And we spent a few hours today out in the yard cleaning and mowing so it’s been a busy weekend.

Also, after this week I’m going to be taking a mini blog break for a few weeks and will not be doing an updates post next weekend so Happy Mother’s Day in advance to the moms. I hope you enjoy the day. I’ll be back to posting and blog hopping first week in June.

onto my updates…

recently on the blog:

I randomly picked 10 books from my shelves for TTT.

Auhtor Peter J. White stopped in for a guest post.

I shared my thoughts on Raw Flesh Flash: The Incomplete, Unfinished Documenting Of by Donovan Hufnagle

in my mailbox:

Bethany House sent me book 2 in Gabrielle Meyer’s Timeless Series, In This Moment. I am so excited to read this. I read book 1 When the Day Comes this past January and it was so good. The covers are very pretty.

coming soon:

I’m sharing my thoughts on A Gilded Death this week. Even though I’ll be on a blog break this review is way overdue so I scheduled it to post.

I’ve been watching Love & Death which is loosely based on a true crime from 1980 about a housewife who was an axe murderer. Episode 5 is coming out May 11 and I can’t wait. I think there’s just 6 episodes total. I watched Candy last year on Hulu which is based on the same true-crime story and I think that one was a little better, but both are good. Have you watched?

That wraps up my updates for now. What have you been up to? This is Otises favorite spot at the window and if you’re walking on our street you can be sure he’s most likely watching you.

  1. Sounds like you’ve been having quite the eventful weekend! The food truck festival sounds like a fun experience, even without the deep-fried Oreos and funnel cake. And kudos to you for tackling the yard work too. It’s always satisfying to see the results of a productive day outdoors. Here’s to more sunny and enjoyable weekends ahead!

  2. Looking out my window right now, I’m wondering where the sun went. It’s been a cloudy day. I wonder if we are in for more rain. I am glad the weather was perfect for the food truck festival. It sounds like you had fun even if they didn’t have everything you were hoping for.

    I hope you enjoy your break! Happy reading!

    The Meyer books look good. And of course, I love seeing Otis taking interest in the world around him. 🙂
    Happy Mother’s Day to you. A blog break is a tempting idea. Enjoy the break! Maybe with some Happy Reading!
