Sunday Post, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? July 3 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.

This was a rainy week. Very muggy. Is it July already? Doesn't feel like it. I need more sun and more heat. I know some of you are sweltering hot where you are. I guess we have to be happy with whatever we get.

Having two teens in the house is a bit challenging for a mom who works from home, but it's great to see my kids enjoying their time off and not stressed. Hope you all have a great reading week!




Mailbox Monday Edition


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.

I bought this one on sale on Kindle. Set against the beautiful backdrop of post-World War II Sardinia, Sara Alexander’s evocative novel is a sweeping story of star-crossed romance between an American lieutenant and a local girl.


This was a free Kindle. It's a Bollywood-style royal romance that takes you to an alternate East Indian world filled with skyships, saber duels, and lots of royal intrigue.



Bought on sale on Kindle. A princess becomes a warrior, indulges in forbidden romance, and rules an empire in an epic fantasy saga inspired by Aladdin and the 1001 Arabian Nights.



Bought on sale on Kindle. It's a time travel novel. You know me and my time travel obsession. Can't resist.

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.

  2. It's been raining a lot here too. In fact it downpoured today several times! And it's been a little cooler than we're used to- kind of a weird summer so far.

    A Thief in time looks good. Time travel is always a draw. :)

  11. I can't believe the year is half over either. The heat and the humidity are rough down here right now.

    Under a Sardinian Sky looks really good.

  12. I understand what you're saying about kids at home being distracting. It can be tough to feel like you spend enough time with them and still get anything accomplished for work. I would ship you some heat and sun from the Outer Banks but seems like we would ship thunderstorms with it too. Every day we have a storm. Enjoy your books.

  14. Third Daughter looked so good I went to Amazon and added it to my Kindle. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  15. I can definitely relate to having teens in the house. They're nothing if not distracting. :-)

  17. I can relate to muggy. Hope your weather gets nicer so you can get more sun.
    You picked up some fun books this week, skyships and Arabian nights. And of course - time travel. I am not familiar with Kindlemovie. Are they movies, not books? Whichever, I hope you enjoy. Happy Reading!

    1. Oops! "Kindlemovie" was a typo. All the titles are Kindle books.

  18. Enjoy your new books. It's hard working at home with a kid who is just fresh out of kindergarten. Are you telling me it doesn't get better...lol

    1. It does get better, but teens need supervision too. And encouragement to get off their butts and get their chores done.

      Delete
  19. I love how you find all these time-travel novels. I like them too, but I prefer the science-y ones.
