Sunday Post, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? Oct 21 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.


It's the harvest season and I've been doing a lot of cooking and baking since I'm getting a lot of produce from my Dad's garden. Fresh greens, beets, garlic, herbs, onions, potatoes, squash and so much other wonderfully fresh organic food! I'm experimenting with various recipes too. But I'm also more tired than usual. The change of seasons, less sun and not as much outdoor activities. Only managed to get out biking once this week. That wind nearly knocked me off the bike path. :-)



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:


Mantis Force: Decimation (Marium Kahnet Book 2) by R.J. Amezcua (Review and Giveaway) This one is hard-core sci-fi.

A Bully on the School Bus by Dr. Mildred D. Peyton and Leah N. Peyton (Book Review and Giveaway!) A good book to read with your young kids to open up conversations about bullying


The Song Peddler of the Pont Neuf by Laura Lebow (Review and Giveaway!) I enjoyed this one a lot. Historical mystery set in 17th century Paris

Don't Write a Crappy Book by James M. Ranson (Book Spotlight, Guest Post and Giveaway!)

  2. No wonder you're a bit tired. That's a lot of work. But I love fresh grown produce too. We have a local farmer that has a small stand and I stop by on the way home often. Enjoy those new reads and bike riding. Be careful of that wind. I had it nearly snatch the car door out of my hand today!

    1. Yeah, the harvest season always has me scrambling to get all that food cooked, preserved or frozen. I hope to get in a few more bike rides if some sunny warm days appear. :-)

  3. I miss the sunshine of summer. I'm happy for a break in the humidity but I'm not ready for cooler weather. Enjoy those fresh veggies!

    I've got to get my hands on the graphic novel of To Kill a Mockingbird.

    1. We had the same weather yesterday. I guess we need those blustery windy days to knock those leaves off their trees!

  5. Nice to have so much goodness coming from the garden, I am just planting mine in the hope of so much goodness at the end of our summer! Lovely to hear about the graphic novel of To Kill a Mockingbird.

  8. Does it mean To Kill a Mockingbird had never been written as a graphic novel before?? Here's my post: https://wordsandpeace.com/2018/10/22/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-october-22/

  9. Fresh produce sounds so good! The shorter days seem to be making me tired too. I really want to read To Kill a Mockingbird and have a copy but other - shinier - books are calling me. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
