Sunday Post, Sunday Salon, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? June 8 Edition

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share our 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.

Sunday Salon hosted by Readerbuzz is simply a place for us to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. Sunday Salon is a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

Gorgeous weather this weekend. I spent time with family and friends, all while keeping a distance of course. I still find it hard not to approach those that I know and kiss them on both cheeks as is the custom for Italians.

I'm enjoying reading outdoors too, soaking up the sun at the same time. In the evenings I'm watching Medici: Masters of Florence on Netflix. 

Happy reading y'all. Stay safe and take care of each other.

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:

A new release by one of my favorite authors.

Bought 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 organize 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 reviewed and/or featured last week:

I enjoyed this medieval time travel novel. First book of The After Cilmeri Series.

Excellent self-help for introspection on comparing oneself to others.

Currently Reading:

Just started this one. So good!

Stop by and enter my giveaways!

Also posted on the right sidebar.

Hope you all have a great reading week.

  1. I've been enjoying reading outside too. The sunshine is very welcome!!

    The Pasha of Cuisine is making me hungry just looking at that cover. :)

    1. I couldn't pass up on it. Middle Eastern cuisine has always been one of my favorite.

  2. Our weather has been nice, too. I snuck onto the porch one morning this week to read a bit.

    Whistling Past the Graveyard looks so good. Love the cover, too.

    Hope you have a nice week.

    1. I've had Whistling Past the Graveyard on my Kindle for such a long time and I'm finally making time to read it.

  3. Hi Laura,

    We are still only allowed to meet in groups of up to 6 and only outdoors, although to be honest, things are all over the place, over here in the UK. There are so many different rules and regulations that you almost need an instruction book for each different circumstance.

    Add to that, the weather which saw the hottest, sunniest may on record, has now changed big time, so that it is too cold, wet and windy to meet outdoors and you tell the mood over here!

    My blogging and reading has been keeping me sane, so I'm going to focus on a couple of your great books this week - 'Fair As a Star' and 'Whistling Past The Graveyard', both by new to me authors!

    Thanks for sharing and here's to better times ahead :)


    1. Our weather is crazy here too. I can't seem to put down Whistling Past The Graveyard. It's a great read.

  4. We had a nice weather week too. I haven't been reading outside though. I'm too prone to sunburn. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  5. I'm also wondering what it will do to the French custom: kissing on the cheeks 2, 3, or 4 times depending on the regions. Regions have been proud of their local tradition, will it all disappear?

    1. I think eventually we will go back to traditions. But it's best to be cautious at this time as tempted as we are to reach out for that hug or kiss!

  6. Love the cover of The Pasha of Cuisine. Enjoy all of your books this week, and thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for visiting my blog...stay safe.

  7. The weather here has been wonderful, and we are expecting sunny days all this week. Like you, I plan to spend as much time outside as I can.

    I love the cover of Pasha of Cuisine. It looks promising.

    We visited my dad and my son this week, safely, of course. I hope we can feel safe hugging one day soon.

    1. I've started visiting my family too, sitting outdoors. Miss hugging my parents...

  8. Our weather has turned hot after 2 weeks of raining 5 days a week. I think we might get 3 days of rain this week which means I have to fit in some lawn mowing again. I watch for the days with the wind from the north. We did have a long and gorgeous spring but it is more summerlike now in NC.

    Enjoy your new reads!

    Anne - Books of My Heart

  9. I love Therese Plummer as a narrator and enjoyed her role in the Virgin River Netflix series. Enjoy the lovely weather.

  10. It's good to hear that you are enjoying nice weather. I think I need to pick out a Mimi Matthews book to read.
    Enjoy all of your reading!

  11. I keep seeing the Authenticity Project and it looks interesting. I may read it yet ;) Thanks for the giveaways - wish me luck! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week.

  12. our patio covering kicked the bucket and i have yet to find a new one of some kind, so sitting outside to read isn't much of an option. just too hot and the electronics hate it. i do spend some time in the pool and still managed to read a lot

    1. I love sitting in the heat and sun but that's because our summers are not long and not as hot as some other places.
