Sunday Post, Sunday Salon, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? Jan 31Edition

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. 

This was a good week, keeping myself productive with work, family, volunteering, drinking good teas, eating delicious chocolate, and of course, reading and blogging. My daughter and I are watching Season 2 of Jamestown on PBS, which we are enjoying quite a bit. The days are getting longer, and we are having a very sunny (but cold) weekend.

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:

The Vanishing at Loxby Manor is a gothic historical novel with some romance and lots of mystery. Don't you just love that cover?

As the writer of the award-winning humor column “Grammar Guy,” Curtis Honeycutt’s grammar advice appears in dozens of newspapers every week. His debut book is filled with witty word wisdom. 

The perfect gift for that middle-grade student in your life...

The food you eat does affect your skin!

This is the perfect book to help young ones especially in this time of pandemic. And its message is helpful for both young and old!

  1. I think I need to read I Can Handle It. I was just telling my dad that I can't! I'm so tired of being trapped indoors.

    I like the look of It Happened in Tuscany, too. One of my favorite parts of the planet.

    Good Grammar is my sort of read. I wonder if I can find it around here.

    And there's Dream It and Do It. Lots of great books on your shelf this week.

  2. Ordering I CAN HANDLE IT right now. My little grandson is having a hard time coping with his feelings. My Sunday Salon post

    1. I hope he likes the book. I found the message good for both kids and adults.

  3. You have a great recipe for staying focussed and happy! Love the look of that picture book I Can Handle It.

  4. You reminded me that I have to go back and watch Jamestown! I started it a while ago, but I need to get back into it.

  5. It's been cold here too. Yikes. We got some snow but thankfully not too much. I'm becoming a fan of tea more and more as I drink it more these days.

    Hope you have a great week.

    It Happened In Tuscany looks good. Blue sky Kingdom has me curious too!

  6. We're digging out from a 13 inch snowfall over the weekend. Good reading weather! All of your new books look fabulous. Have a good week, Laura!

  7. Tempting titles! I love the look of It Happened in Tuscany.

    Now I am curious about Jamestown. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  8. Nice looking assortment of books. I do love the cover for The Vanishing at Loxby Manor. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  9. I'm glad you had a good week. Keeping productive helps. Enjoy your new reads!

    Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

  10. All of your books look so good. It Happened in Tuscany has my interest. I'll have to check that one out. Have a great week.

  11. So glad you got this book by MK Todd. We featured it on France Book Tours a few years ago, and several others by hers, they are all very good. She's actually working on publishing another one very soon, so keep your eyes on France Book Tours for a review copy!

    1. Yes, her book Paris in Ruins is being published soon. Can't wait to read it!

  12. I hope you love your new books! I’ve been trying to stay busy too. The internet was broken for most of the day, so I cleaned all my rooms. I’m productive when I don’t have the internet and can’t leave the house. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Sometimes I wish the Internet would break in my house so I can get my teen kids to do other stuff!

  13. I liked the first season or two of Jamestown but it fell apart for me in the last.
    I do like the cover of The Vanishing

    Wishing you a great reading week

  14. Looks like you have been very busy.
    I Can Handle It looks good. :-) I like the sounds of A Captain for Caroline Gray too.
    Have a good week. Stay warm and Happy Reading!

  15. Yes, I'm drawn to the cover of The Vanishing at Loxby Manor as well. Enjoy.

  16. Good Grammar Is the Life of the Party sounds like a fun book
