This was a weird weather week, that felt more like fall then the middle of August. Rain, gray skies, wind and cooler temps left us feeling confused. I continued devouring audiobooks, had some dental surgery and visited blogs. My funk continues but onward buttercup! I hope the week was a good one for you, I know many are heading back to school or have little ones preparing to go. Stay Caffeinated!

November 9th through the 18th. Winter and Holiday reads. Sign-ups will go up in late September.I will also be looking for challenge hosts.
On Thursday it was 69 and very windy. Upon going outside the Royals decided they needed their coats. Little summer jackets would not do. Nope, they wanted their winter ones. Barefooting and in winter coats they happily played!

Please send some of that cool weather this way, girl! Sorry about the dental visit, but hopefully you feel better these days. Kudos on the reading of so many audio books. Good for you! Hugs…and Happy Tuesday! RO
We’ve had weird weather too. Some days have been more like fall. Other days, we’ve had rain, which made it hot and humid. Hubs almost passed out the other day, he got so dehydrated. I made him spend the rest of the day in the house with water. I hope you’re feeling better. Have a great week.

Aj @ Read All The Things!
Ouch, dental surgery. That sucks. The photo of the kids in their coats is hilarious. Have a good week! Thanks for giving my post a shout out.
Tyler H. Jolley
We had similar weather all week. There was a lot of small flooding and it was much cooler than normal August temps. But we’re back to the hot, hot, hot Western Slope weather. Keep Caffeinated, Kimba.
Yeah audiobooks can bridge the gap when your in a slump. I hope you pick up some great books to help you out your slump.

What an adorable photo of your Royals! It did get a little cool here this week but not THAT cool. Lol. 🙂 Hope you’re all healed up from dental surgery!
Tanya @ Rantings of a Reading Addict
Sucks that your mood is still in the crapper. Your weather probably didn’t help much. But those Royals in their barefeet with winter jackets was definitely worth a chuckle. Kids that age are so funny! I hope you have an uplifting week and keep connecting with us all. We’ll help you get out of your funk!
Dental surgery, gray skies, rain and funk doesn’t sound good. Sorry for all of it! I had two trips to the dentist myself this week but thankfully no surgery. It was cooler here this week with some rain as well but we go back to the 90’s tomorrow. I am so ready for Fall. Feel better!
Oh – how cute the royals look! Our weather was cooler this week too – at least in the mornings.
I’m glad you are getting through with audiobooks.
Hope this week picks up for you and you find a book that gets you out of the funk.
Ugh, I have to go to the dentist tomorrow but it’s been forever so I guess it’s a good thing. lol The cooler weather was really nice, but it’s definitely getting hot again!
Angela @ Angel's Guilty Pleasures
Aww the Royals are adorable. ^_^ Not many books added to your shelf this week. Hope you enjoy the one you got. I’m excited for my son goes back to school this week starting in 1st grade. Ah they grow up so fast. Have a great week and Happy Reading!
I like the cooler weather. It’s nowhere near the cold weather I got when I lived in Minnesota, this cooler weather is the good stuff 60s and 70s, even 50s is good if not too windy. We had a couple gorgeous 80 degrees, sunny and cool north breeze days. But we’re back to 90s this upcoming week.
Magic Triumphs!!! Yay. I read it and now I listen to the audio. It is a best book forever. I hope you have a great reading week. Anne – Books of My Heart
The royals are so cute. Dental surgery SUCKS! I take something before every visit, even it it’s a cleaning. Dentist are evil. LOL
Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction
That pic of the kiddos in winter coats and shorts is just the sweetest!
Hi. Your grandkids are adorable! Yeah, 69° is also cold for us here. I’m sorry you had to have some dental surgery. I hope you are healing well and smoothly.
And sorry about having to find me. I figured you had read everything already and I haven’t published anything lately because I’ve been busy being a mum. And sorry, I get lazy when having to fill out my 411 every time when I’m catching up on your blog. I figured it was no big deal.
Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library
Sorry to hear that the funk is still hanging around and about the dental surgery! I can’t believe how chilly it’s gotten there! Granted I’m a wimp when it comes to temps so I’m not sure if that’s really considered chilly. The Royals look super cute in their winter coats! Have a great week!
ah yes you needed sunshine this week!
Here’s to you being my sunshine and love the royals pic
LOL = winter coats and barefoot :-). Hope this week is a good one for you.
I hope the dental surgery went well and didn’t leave you in too much pain.
The temperatures are leaving us confused over here as well. And that picture is adorable! I hope you have a great week! Thank you for all your hard work in keeping this going 🙂
Weather here hasn’t been awesome either. It’s been hot and humid. Or today is gloomy and humid.
Oh my gosh that picture of the royals is too cute!!! Its still summer here! Hot, hot, hot! Although there were a few mornings it was chilly (it warmed up quickly!). Hope you have a great week!
Yep, wild cool and wet weather here, too, but August shook it off and we’re back to the steam and heat. LOL Cute with their bare toes and the coats.
Have a great week, Kimberly!
It’s been a weird weather week here too! Fall like and all . But the grass and cows needed some rain so much so I am not complaining 😉
Jovita @ Inky Impressions
Ah the Royals are lovely with their winter coats. In my area school started the first week of August, but the children also get a two week Fall break at the end of October. I’m thankful that my children are older and I no longer have to deal with drop-off lines.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.
It was a weird weather week for us too. The Royals are soo darn cute. My kids start back tomorrow and I go back the following week. I find I am looking forward to it. Have a great week! I can’t wait to read your review of Tessa Dare!
Kristin (Book Sniffers Anonymous)
I wish the weather here was like that. It’s still in the 100’s. It’s going to be a while until I get used to the desert climate again. I hope you are able to get out of the funk soon. I hate it when I hit a reading/blogging slump.
I started college three weeks back and I’m already EXHAUSTED. I’m so tired. So so tired.
A quiet week for books this time. happy reading!
Melissa (My World...in words and pages)
Yes! I just mentioned the weather in my Sunday Post as well. It’s been warm during the day but as soon as the sun goes down, it’s chilly! It feels like fall!
It’s been a totally weird August which has me worried about winter! We are usually in a drought in Aug and we have gotten so much rain to make up for the drought in July! 🙂
Have a great week an happy reading!
No rain here, but our nights have been dipping down lower than my liking. It definitely has cooled off the pool, and I doubt with less than a week left in August that it will bounce back. Ah, I guess it’s that time. I came home from the lake to yellow leaves on the ground. The change in weather has been abrupt!
I’m not ready yet for back to school. I haven’t done any shopping yet, and I’m still painting my younger daughter’s bedroom. By the end of the week, I should be ready!
Have a good week! That picture is just too cute!!
Barefoot and winter coats! Too cute! It’s been pouring down with rain here and actually pretty chilly outside too. We ended up sticking the heating on the other night! Where has the summer gone? 🙁
Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra
It was a weird weather week here as well. Some days still felt summery, but by and large, it felt like fall, which has made our outdoor projects, etc a lot more enjoyable than they might otherwise have been.
The Royals are absolutely adorable!
I hope that the funk won’t hang around much longer and that you start feeling more yourself again.
The Royals are adorable. Our weather has been like fall this week too. I hope you are feeling better. Have a great week!
It was fairly cool in the mornings the last couple of days, which was awesome. It’s supposed to be pretty hot this week, though. Sorry to hear you are still in a funk. Hope this week is better!
The weather has been odd here too! It was beautifully sunny yesterday but it feels like we’ve jumped to November now because it’s cold and rainy. I hope it settles down soon.
Have a great week!
looks exactly like mine today! except we had to take them off as the weather warmed up during the day
Jessica @ a GREAT read
We had a bout of nice weather this week too…that promptly ended once the weekend started! Now we’re back to summer and I miss the little taste of cooler temps. They weren’t quite fall, but they were at least a break of 90+ and humidity! Lol!
Nice new read! It’s totally new to me but I hope you will enjoy it!
Here’s my STS
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower 🙂
Adorable photo of the Royals! Thanks so much for sharing!!!
Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog
Oh I am excited for some more fall like temps soon! Hope you get out of your funk. The Royals are adorable!! Have a great week!
Michelle @Because Reading
Last two days the weather was gorgeous but next week we are back in the 90s. I wish we could keep low 60s and 70s forever 🙂
Have a great week, Kim! Happy Reading!
It felt more like fall here this week too, but I am kinda happy with the cooler temperatures. Sorry to hear about your dental surgery and that the funk continues. That’s fun the royals played outside with their winter coats on, but with bare fete. Have a great week!
Urg – dental surgery… This hasn’t been your year, healthwise, has it?? I love the pic of the children playing outside in the rain – it takes me back to when my twinkles insisted on bare feet/sandals and coats. It’s been a lot cooler here, too. And the number of berries already ripe on the trees and bushes has come as a shock, too. I think we are also in for an early autumn. I hope the coming week is an easier one and that perhaps you’re in for a bit more sunshine before the winter closes in, Kimberly
Tanya @ Girl Plus Books
I’m pretty envious of your blast of cooler temps. Love the pic of the kids in their coats… while barefoot. LOL
Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books
I don’t dare read your thoughts on Magic Triumphs until after Tuesday. It’s so close now! But so far…
The picture of your grandkids in their coats is adorable. I love kid logic… Bare feet + Winter coat = happy.
Weather is strange here too, but I like it because it’s not that hot as it was.
I can’t wait for your readathon to start!! 🙂 I will definitely participate, and maaaaaaaybe I’ll even sign up to be one of challenge hosts.
Stephanie Jane (Literary Flits)
It’s getting autumnal here too. This morning I’m watching the rain blowing up the valley which is beautiful in its own right, but grey and cold too.
I love the winter coat and barefoot look. I wish I was still young enough to work that. It’s a paddling in puddles kind of day.
I’m amazed at how many books you review in a week. I am hard-pressed to finish one book review!
Kingdom of Needle and Bone Hardcover is $40.00????!!! Ahh no. Am I assuming you got a copy given for review by Subterranean? Anyway, your royals look adorable in their winter coats. The little one looks like he’ll be outgrowing his jacket pretty soon. lol
Yes, I got a digital copy and I am hoping they adjust that price..because Wow!
Winter coats and bare feet. They are so adorable! I would welcome your weather. We are heading back to the 90s. Not happy.
Angelica @ Paperback Princess
Gorgeous children ?
I’m in a bit of a slump myself, at least you were able to listen to audiobooks. I’m yet to finish ANY format last week.
Tressa @ Wishful Endings
We had rain too and a drop in temps that I wish would stay, but we’ll be warming back up for the rest of the week. It’s been a weird year for weather all around honestly. The Royals are so adorable! Makes me miss when mine were that little. They grow up so fast! I hope you figure out your funk or that this week goes at least a little better!
That is such a cute picture of the Royals. I hope the dental surgery went well, and that you heal up quickly!
Dani @ Perspective of a Writer
The Royals are so ADORABLE!!! GAHHH and I can’t believe they are running around in their bare feet, that is so cute… isn’t that just like children! Cold everywhere but their feet, lol! <3
Eek! Hope the dental surgery went well! I wish we had fall weather over here, I’m desperate for Autumn and all the things it brings to come back finally (well, maybe not the colds and flus). Also the faces on your babies – too dang cute, I just want to squeeze them up!
I’m excited to hear about the fall-like temperatures. I’m hoping when I return it will turn cooler. Laughing hard at that photo of the grandkids! They are adorable.
Have a great week, Kim!
JJ @ This Dark Material
Sounds like my kind of weather to be honest, although I doubt we’ll see it here for at least another month. I hope you’re recovering well post-surgery. Fingers crossed some sunshine comes your way this week!
Oh my gosh, Kimberly! The Royals are entirely too cute! Of course you need your winter coats with flip flips! Lol!
I’m picking up Magic Triumphs tonight and I CAN’T WAIT!! I’m super excited but also a bit sad that the series is ending! I’m crossing my fingers for a companion series with Derek and Julie! 🙂
Did you read Iron and Magic? Hughes book? Read it first if you haven’t!
Yes, and I loved it! At least that series will be continuing. 🙂
I hope you recovery quickly from your dental surgery. Not fun at all:) And that is some strange weather. I’d be like the little ones, barefoot with a winter coat. LOL
Hey who needs shoes when you have a big coat on, right? Ha ha the weather’s been weird here too, not really cool per se but cooler than usual for end of summer! Oh well. Usually I’m roasting this time of year.
Hope you’re feeling better, have a great week!
Oh, lovely photo of the children! Enjoy the new week, and I hope your weather is more to your liking.
Thanks for sharing, and for hosting.
