Sunday Post, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? Sept 25 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.

So I missed posting these memes last week. My son was sick with painful stomach pain, nausea, and a migraine. After the 4th day, we thought he might have appendicitis and spent the day in ER at the Children's Hospital. Turns out several other teens showed up with the same symptoms. Some sort of virus going around that mimicked the symptoms similar to appendicitis. Lasted 7 days. Poor kid! 

Montreal is going through a very unusual heat wave. Temps in the 80s and 90s (26 to 32 degrees Celcius) when we usually have temps in the 50s and 60s. We are on our third week. We barely had any heat this summer and it decides to show up now! I'm not complaining. The heat and sunny days are wonderful. Snow is just around the corner for us...

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.

For review:

Tribal Affairs by Matt Dallmann
A YA fantasy fiction with a genie! And a touch of romance.

The Fabergé Entanglement by Lesley Meryn & Elle Brookes
Romantic suspense. I look forward to digging into this one.

First Crush, Last Love by Elizabeth McKenna
It's been a while since I read a straight up romance novel.

The Black Market Concierge by Barry Oberholzer
A memoir that covers the author's former life in international espionage. I've been wanting to read this one ever since the author approached me a year ago.


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.

What I read and/or featured last week:

Carbon (Watcher Book #2) by AJ Eversley (Review, Author Interview & Giveaway!)

A Year in the Company of Freaks by Teresa Neumann (Review, Author Interview & Giveaway)

  1. Oh, how terrible that your son was sick with something that lasted that long. It's good that you were able to get a diagnosis.

    I'm curious about The Black Market Concierge. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Your poor son - a week like that sounds awful. I'm glad he's on the mend.

    It's been really warm and humid here too. I love the warm but can do without the humidity.

    Enjoy your new books!

    1. It was awful to have continuous stomach pain and no appetite. He lost weight too.

  3. It's been hot here too although this past week it got in the mid 90's. It's supposed to drop like twenty degrees on Wednesday though. I know what you mean about summer- it was almost hotter last week than we got all summer!

    Sorry to hear about the virus! That does sound nasty.

    Hope your week ahead is a good one.

  4. Hi Laura,

    I am so pleased that your son is on the mend now, it must have been so worrying until you were able to get a diagnosis. There are lots of strange bugs going around already this year, so I hope we aren't in for too bad a winter of sickness!

    Whilst not probably a book for me to actually read, I love the cover art of 'The Winner' and the premise is quite unique and interesting, so I hope that you are enjoying it so far :)


    1. Yes, this was a strange bug. First time any of my kids experienced this kind of stomach pain. I love the cover of The Winner too and the book is good too!

  5. Always a worry when our kids are sick. I'm so glad your son is feeling better. I hope you enjoy a lovely autumn before the cold rushes in!

  6. I'm glad your son is feeling better. We are having a return to summer here too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  7. Glad your son is feeling better.

    We had NO heat at all in was in the 50's and 60's. The heat here now, but I love it. :)

    Love the cover on THE WINNER. I hope it is a "winner."

  8. Oh wow, that's a big scare you guys had! Glad it all turned out well. You must've been so worried! I hope this week's much better.

  9. Your poor son! I hope he's feeling better now. Enjoy your books! I love the cover of Tribal Affairs.

  10. Sorry your son was sick. We had a terrible heatwave here about two weeks ago. It's supposed to heat up again this weekend. I wish it would just get on with the fall temperatures and rain. Come see what I'm reading

  11. So sorry you had that scare with your son but I am glad he is doing better.
    You have all engaging looking new books. I like the sound of Tribal Affair and The Fabergé Entanglement. Maybe you can relax in the heat while you enjoy them all. Happy Reading!

  12. Going to the ER is very scary. I hope that he is ok. Happy reading

  13. I'm sorry to hear about your son. I hope he's getting better. Enjoy your books. Happy reading. ❤️
