Sunday Post, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? May 14 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.

We continue to get sunny days and we are continuing our yard work, renovations and planning for our summer holidays. I watched Captain Corelli's Mandolin on Netflix this weekend and I loved it. The cinematography was beautiful and I wished I could have seen it on the big screen when it came out years ago. Also saw Avengers Infinity War and that ending made me want to throw my 3D glasses at the screen! Much like when we want to throw a book against the wall after an infuriating cliffhanger ending. 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.

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:

Degrees of Love by Lisa Slabach (Book Spotlight and Giveaway!)



All the Way to Italy by Flavia Brunetti (Review, Author Interview, and Giveaway!) This book made me so nostalgic for Rome!

    1. The setting of that book and the fact that it's about a group of writers made me want to read it.

  5. I also watched The Avengers this week, forgot to put it into my sunday post, will need to go on next week. I wasn't thrilled with the Avengers and the ending was a terrible cliff hanger. They really should've advertised it as a 2 part.

    1. Yes, you're right, if they would have advertized it as Part 1 of 2, then that ending would have been okay.

  6. Nice looking books. I'm still waiting for Spring to be consistent. One day is nice, the next is cold so far. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    1. I don't think consistency in our weather is ever going to happen. I'm just happy when it's sunny and warm.:-)

  9. I'm checking out many blogs from this Sunday post. I see you're Canadian - I know some awesome Canadians. The first blog I reviewed on was Yummy Men & Kick Ass Chicks with Julie. I went to visit her when I rode my Harley up there. It turned out she lived only about 50 KM from where I was staying. She was good friends with Carmel at Rabid Reads and I think those are the first two blogs I ever read. They are sadly both gone now. My daughter was a big fan of Sharon Creech during her middle grade years. Anne - Books of My Heart

    1. I didn't realize Rabid Reads is no longer posting. I've been around for 10 years and have seen blogs come and go. Thanks for stopping by!

    ENJOY your books, Laura, and I hope you have a good week.

  11. I read Captain Morelli's Mandolin years ago and liked it. I don't think I've seen the film so I'll have to see if I can find it to rent!
