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

One day at a time...that's my new mantra these days. Do I want to talk about the mounting stress levels in the public health sector? Nope. Changes are coming, but for today, the sun is shining, my family is well, I'm reading good books, and I watched Michael McIntyre: Showman on Netflix this weekend which cracked me up as usual. McIntyre and Maniscalco are my favorite comedians. I'm guaranteed to laugh my head off with these two. And I discovered Mike Marino as he talks about making America Italian again. If you haven't seen it, it's worth the 5 minute watch!

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:

I've enjoyed every book I've read by Jojo Moyes and this latest book by her is one of the best books I've read this year.

This is the third book in the Henrietta and Inspector Howard series. Another great listen in this series.

I like books about art so this one caught my attention. I haven't read it yet but I'm adding it to my list of books to-read.

Currently Reading:

Thought I'd go for a light-hearted book.

Stop by and enter my giveaways!

Hope you all have a great reading week.

  1. Windswept has such a great cover. Glad you enjoyed The Giver of Stars. I did too!

    May you have a wonderful week. Here's my The Sunday Post #12

  2. One day at a time is a wonderful way to live these days. I'm determined not to let myself slip down into a depression because of all the craziness going on around me. Comedians are keeping me going. We really enjoyed watching Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

    I've got The Giver of Stars here now. I hope to read it this week. Glad to see you liked it so much.

    The Queen of Owls looks promising, too. I'm fascinated with book having art themes, too.

    Have a great week, Laura.

  3. Maniscalco is almost guaranteed to make my husband and me laugh until we ache! I haven't heard of Michael McIntyre so I'll have to add him to our queue. I need all the laughter I can get these days.

    Enjoy your week!

  4. LOL - that video - so funny when he started laughing. And, Gentleman Jim looks appealing.

    1. I know, right? I love when comedians laugh at their own jokes. You can tell they are having fun as they share their sense of humor with us.

  5. TANGLED IN IVY is so good as is QUEEN OF THE OWLS. I've read both and throughly enjoyed them.

    Great books
    Thank you for the laugh also. :D

    1. That's good to know. Now I look even more forward to reading them.

  6. Yes one day at a time is what's happening these days! Have a good week!

    Anne - Books of my Heart Here is my Sunday Post

  7. Good book week for you, Laura.

    One day at a time is the best way to take it.

    Love the cover on PROSPECTS OF A WOMAN.

    Happy Reading, and I hope your week is a good one.

  8. I love that video! :)

    Sometimes (especially lately) you just have to take things a day at a time!

    Be well this week!!

  9. I want to read The Giver of Stars. I am glad to know you liked it. What a week. I am so heartbroken about the death of RBG.

  10. The video did make me smile. Thanks.
    I am pretty sure I will pick up The Giver of Stars before the year is out. So many good books for you this week. I am tempted by Gentleman Jim, Tangled in Ivy and Windswept.
    Have a good week; stay safe and Happy Reading!

  11. Laughter is important, I’ve been watching some comedy on YouTube this week and it’s made a difference to my mood I think.
    I enjoyed The Giver of Stars too, I’d still like to read The Bookwoman of Troublesome Creek to compare.

    Wishing you a great reading week

    Wishing you a great reading week

  12. Yes the Giver of Stars was one I really liked too. I like comedy too and enjoy Michael M. Haven't watched his NF show yet but have it in my list.

  13. I'm excited to see a new Mimi Matthews! Stay well and have a good week!

  14. One day at a time is all we can do. We have been blessed so far.
