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.
This was a quiet work week, and I enjoyed the warm weather this weekend. Sunny and hot so back to shorts. But it will undoubtedly cool off by the end of the week. I watched Enola Holmes and thought it was a fun movie. I also watched Bel Canto. I had read the book years ago and have been meaning to watch the movie. Julianne Moore was excellent in her role but the movie failed to capture the emotions from the relationships that are forges between the guerilla soldiers and the kidnapped group. It should have been longer and more drawn out.
I also got me some happy books this week. Gearing up for the tough times ahead.
Hope you are all well. Stay safe and take care of each other.

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 wish I had time to read these excellent MG books set during WWII
This is the fourth book in the Henrietta and Inspector Howard series. As expected, this was another great audiobook listen for me!
Stop by and enter my giveaways!
Also posted on the right sidebar.
Hope you all have a great reading week.
Checking for details on FREEDOM LESSONS.It sounds like something I need to read. My Sunday Salon postReplyDelete
It's a good and insightful read. I hope you get to read it too.Delete
I am very interested in the Enola Holmes movie (funny, but I didn't realize it was a movie...thought it was a series). My husband loves mysteries, and I think he will like this one.ReplyDelete
I see that you are stocking up on happy books. Me, too. I'm not avoiding the tough reads, but I am focusing on some good combination that gives me enough strength to push on. I have been working my way through a simple drawing book most of this year, and that has given me something each day to look forward to. I also made a list of recommended mood-boosting books and I draw on that to choose my reads.
I hope you have a good week.
The books of Enola Holmes are a series and I would have loved for the movie to be the beginning of a series too!Delete
Too bad about the Bel Canto film. I enjoyed the book years ago and didn't know a film had been made. I hope you enjoy The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek as much as I did.ReplyDelete
I was excited about the film. I still enjoyed it but it doesn't capture like the book.Delete
A Veil Removed looks good. I'll have to look for the first in the series. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I just bought some shorts in preparation for the approaching summer, I should probably shave my legs too. :)ReplyDelete
I’m planning to watch Enola Holmes soon.
Wishing you a great reading week
I've found that movies rarely capture all the emotion that I feel when I read a book. I'm going to look up Affirm Your life right now.... Thanks for sharing! I just finished reading Ruth Ware's latest novel, One by One. It was another thriller for sure!ReplyDelete
I agree, most times movies don't do the books justice. There are exceptions but for the most part I prefer reading the book.Delete
i think happy books are on the agenda. i do see tough times aheadReplyDelete

I really enjoy John Heldt's books. Whenever I need a feel good story I pick up one of his books.ReplyDelete
I read a few of his books and really enjoyed them.Delete
I must watch Enola Holmes, it does look great fun!ReplyDelete
Good you have some organised some happy reading. I enjoyed the Bookwoman of Troublesome Creek when I listened to it.ReplyDelete
I think I'll give A Veil Removed a listen for a change as I do like the series. Have a good week.ReplyDelete
I've caught a little cold I think from the weather change (I often catch something when the weather cools off) so keeping some warm weather around for a while sounds good to me too! Unfortunately it's probably not going to happen. :) Hope yours holds on for a few more days anyway. Be well this week!ReplyDelete
It's a good time to be receiving some happy books. I've heard lots of great things about The Bookwoman of Troublesome Creek. I hope you enjoy it.ReplyDelete
I definitely like your getting happy books. Freedom Lessons does sounds interesting. It brought to mind the movie Conrack which was based on Pat Conroy's book The Water is Wide.ReplyDelete
Our temperature went down to 58 tonight so cooler days are definitely on the way.
Have a good week and Happy Reading!
