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.
Back to work was brutal this week. Plus, I developed an eye allergy (puffy, itchy and red) which slowed down my reading considerably. It's better now, but I still can't wear my contacts.
Spoke to my sister who lives in Spain. They are experiencing a second wave of COVID-19. I'm bracing myself for a challenging fall.
Hope you are all well. 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.
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:
This is a heartwarming story of a wild Mustang horse and the young teen girl who loves it.
After seeing all the great reviews, I requested this one from the library.
I'm starting it today.
Stop by and enter my giveaways!
Also posted on the right sidebar.
Hope you all have a great reading week.
The Lions of Fifth Avenue seems nice! Sorry to hear about your eye allergy. Tell me about it! I've been wearing glasses for the past 12 years after I've developed chronic eye infections and am not allowed to wear contacts anymore. Hope your eyes are better soon!ReplyDelete
Wishing you a great week!
My eye doctor changed my saline solution. She says that over time we can become allergic to the ingredients in the solution.Delete
Fiona Davis is the daughter of an old member of our book club, and we read her first book at her bidding. It was fabulous. She did a Facetime with our group, and we first heard her speak. When I was at BookExpo I got to meet her in person. Such a kind and gracious person. I look forward to hearing what you think about her new book.ReplyDelete
I've completely abandoned my contacts in favor of a beautiful pair of glasses. It's just so much easier to wear them, I think. I hope your allergy clears up soon.
Your poor sister. I understand completely. It's still a mess here, even though people are (finally!) starting to wear masks.
Have a good week.
I've been wanting to read Fiona Davis' books for some time now and I hope to read not only this latest ones but her previous books too.Delete
Sorry you had an eye allergy, glad it's better. I enjoyed Finding Home, The Sea Gate sounds so good.ReplyDelete
I hope you have a great week!
I have antihistamine eye drops which I usually only need in April. I think we are still in the first wave in the US; we just stay home but we like to be at home. I hope your next week at work is less demanding.ReplyDelete
Anne - Books of My Heart Here is my Sunday Post
I'm hoping this won't be a recurring eye problem. Eye drops do help.Delete
I hope it’s just allergies...did you hear they have added conjunctivitis/ pinkeye as a symptom of Covid?ReplyDelete
I’ve added The Lions of Fifth Avenue to my TBR list too.
Wishing you a great reading week
Yikes, I did not know that about the new symptom.Delete
Eye problems can be scary! I hope the change in solution works to clear it up. Have a good week, Laura.ReplyDelete
I'm worried about the fall too. and yikes- sorry to hear about the eye allergy. Hope that goes away quickly! I hate it when I can't wear my contacts, I've gotten so used to them!ReplyDelete
Take care this week!
I've been wearing contacts for decades and I hope to continue wearing them, hopefully!Delete
I feel the pain on your eyes. I hope they get better soon. Daily wear lenses have really helped ease my eye troubles.ReplyDelete
Sometimes it is hard to get back to work after a nice break.
I like the Sea Gate cover. I'll be curious to see how you like The Lions of Fifth Avenue. It sounds interesting.
Have a good week!
I may try daily wear contacts if the monthly wear becomes harder to wear. I like the Sea Gate cover too. :-)Delete
I get a similar eye irritation and it can be painful and annoying I use Refresh Optive and it helps quite a bit. I had to give up contacts after I kept getting infections.ReplyDelete
You have a couple of good looking books there. I have seen Lions of Fifth Avenue around a lot. Will be interested in your view. Hope your eye clears very soon.ReplyDelete
I have The Sea Gate requested from the library. I am looking forward to getting it. I also need to read Fiona Davis! One day.ReplyDelete
I've heard Fiona Davis books are good so I have high expectations for this one.Delete
Sorry about the tough work week and the eye problems. My eyes are also suffering, but it’s because of the wildfires and all the smoke in the air. I can’t imagine trying to get contacts in right now. I hope your sister stays safe. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Aj @ Read All The Things!
I'm preparing for another wave this fall. Our school district has set up a decent plan in an effort to keep kids safe. Not sure how easy it will be on parents, but we will see how things go.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about your eye allergy. I pray you feel better soon and can go back to your contacts.
The Sea Gate sounds interesting. Love the cover. I've been wanting to read The Lions of Fifth Avenue for a while. Hopefully, I will get to it this year.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you have a nice week.
any eye problem really sucks for us readers and bloggers. hope it clear up soon.ReplyDelete
