Sunday Post, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? May 15 Edition

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

I'm reading books faster than I can review and post about them. I'm actually binge reading. Late spring does that to me. I need some escapism and books are great for that. 

Flooding continues to be a problem in Montreal. Our bike paths along the rivers in some areas are closed off because the river waters have overflowed onto them and homes on the Western tip of the island and surrounding areas are so flooded that in the town of Rigaud the mayor has declared a state of emergency and ordered residents to leave their homes. It doesn't help that it keeps raining! So sad. Hope you are all having a good Sunday. 

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.

Three books for review in my mailbox:

These books are on tour with iRead Book Tours from May 22 to July 14.

This neat little book is on tour with iRead Book Tours from June 5 to 16.

Found this one free on Kindle.


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear about all the rain - water is so destructive. I'm glad you're reading so much, though! Happy Mother's Day, Laura!

  2. That's awful about the flooding- sorry to hear that. Here's hoping the rain stops soon...

    Glad the reading is going well though! I love binge reading...

    Horizon and Infinity both look really interesting. I like those covers. I'll be checking those out!

    1. I don't often get a chance to binge read but right now it's keeping me sane! :-)

  3. Too much rain can be so problematic, and it is especially sad in areas where there has been the rain is a mixed blessing.

    We had more rain than we needed this year, but after years of drought, we were definitely ambivalent.

    Enjoy your books, which are all new to me; thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Sorry to hear about the continued flooding. Hope the rain stops for you soon.
    I could probably binge read if I didn't chose to do the reviews and blog posts. :-)
    I'm enjoying the Carr mysteries and looking forward to the Lord sci fi books.
    Happy Reading!

    1. I know...writing and posting is very time consuming. I'm enjoying Carr's books too and just started on Lord's books.

  5. I Love how well the covers for Horizon and Infinity look together. New to this series but the covers intrigue me. Hope you enjoy your books.

    My It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post.

  6. So sorry to hear about the flooding! Have you started reading The Sheikh's Son yet, and is it any good? (It looks like something I might like but Free on Kindle can be such a gamble! LOL) Here's my Reading list this week -

    Happy Reading!

    1. Nope, haven't started The Sheikh's Son yet. Might get to it in the summer.

  7. I'm trying to read ahead and get review scheduled. I know the first couple of weeks in June will be chaotic with ending work and moving. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  8. Oh my on the safe.

    I LOVE reading ahead, but this month and next I will be visiting and have visitors so I hope I get everything done.

    ENJOY your week, Laura.

  9. I hope the weather moves on and things dry out. Flooding is terrible. Back in the '60s when I was a little girl, my hometown (along the Mississippi River) would flood every spring. They finally forbid any more building near the river and several owners had their homes relocated to higher ground. That area continues to flood every year.
    Hope you have a good week, Laura!

    1. Wow, I can't imagine what it must have been like to get flooded every year.

  10. Hope you will share a few tips from Headstrong next week! I guess one I could think of for myself would be to stay off social media!! Flooding is terrible and it seems so more prevalent these days everywhere.

  11. How did I miss that you're in Montreal? I've been watching the flooding news from here. I hope the weather normalizes soon.

    I had a great week of reading and a fun mother's day. Come see what I'm reading now.

  12. Oh wow, that's a lot of rain! I work two days a week with a long commute and I was jokingly saying that it has rained every Friday for months. It's no fun trying to get around flooded roads.

    Enjoy your binge reading!
