After the readathon ended, I found myself with a bunch of reviews to write and have been slowly knocking them off. Thanks to Taylor Fenner for hosting a challenge. You rock! I am not sure if I will continue the Fraterfest Readathon next read. Participation was at an all-time low. Up next is the HoHoHo Readathon in November. We still need challenge hosts. We have been watching the Phillies and Eagles as the weather flip-flops between summer and winter. Have a wonderful week & Stay Caffeinated.

    I recall your weather has the most amazing temperature swings… Glad you are on top of your reviews – I’ve spent the year trying to keep up! I hope the coming week is a good one for you, Kimberly.

    I relate to the extra reviews to write thanks to Fraterfest.
    I have to line up books and sign up for Ho-Ho-Ho.
    I hope the weather flipping doesn’t impact your health negatively.
    Your new books are all new authors to me.
    Happy Reading!

    Hallo, Hallo everyone!

    Last time I joined you for The Sunday Post, I had intended to visit some of your lovely blogs but time slipped past me with work and some unexpected crises involving my Dad. Ergo, I’m hoping this week to hop between the last one I shared and this week’s and start to get back into a good rhythm again with visiting with others. This time round it is a bit of a lighter update and a more regular one that I hope to continue in the future. I’m talking about #SpooktasticReads and having to bow out of #Fraterfest before I even realised I missed it! :O Oyy. Maybe next year!

    I picked 3x main reads I want to focus on until Halloween and if all goes well I’ll be adding on a few extras, too. Trying to get back into regular posts — between Sunday Posts and WWWeds and maybe a few other meme posts whilst reviewing as I’m able too and hoping for some guest posts as time shifts forward. Just starting to re-find my groove. Thanks for visiting if you drop by and I’m also dipping my toes on Insta nowadays, too. Some book photos will start to generate on there before the close of October, too.

    Hope all is well with all of you, too.

    PS: Hoping to do the HoHoHoRAT… *fingers crossed*!!

    Yes, weather was a bit erratic last, but I think we’ve finally settled into fall this week. We hit peek color season to make my walks lovely. Hopefully, you get through your reviews quickly. I’ve got a few reviews to work up. Yes, fun cover game from Taylor for Fraterfest. Too bad it was low on participation this year.

    Have a good week, Kimberly!

    I am sorry the readathon had not more participants Kimberly. This week has been crazy busy and I barely ahd time to reply to comments at the beginning of the week! I hope you’ll write all your reviews!

    I have been reading more than writing reviews and I get mad at myself. It is so much easier to write the reviews right after finishing the book. Sometimes, I can’t help myself and I have to get to the next book on my list. LOL I am hit and miss on some of my weekly blog posts. I do get a bit lazy sometimes. I have been root, root, rooting for my Michigan Wolverines and Detroit Lions. I love that both of them are doing so well this year.

    I’m glad you got a lot read during Fraterfest. I failed it utterly. I’m beginning to think I am too much of a mood reader these days to be any good at sticking to readathon themes. I usually sign up for the HoHoHoRAT, but I may have to miss it this year. I have a project due right around then.

    Your new books look good. I hope you enjoy reading all of them! know you love Benedict Jacka’s books.

    Thank you for hosting Fraterfest, I know that must be a lot of work to host and organize. I managed to read 6 short stories for it this time around.
    Enjoy your week and football!

    I miss the cold weather (and food) from this time of year most of all. Thanksgiving and Christmas just do not seem right when it’s sunny and hot. After nearly 20 years living in southern Thailand, you would think I would get used to it but I never do.

    There are definite downsides to doing readathons. What I have been doing lately, is writing my reviews when I finish a book and time myself so I don’t take too long writing them. Glad you had a good week and are caught up from a busy week.

  11. A Voracious Reader

    I wish I had time for readathons. I hate my life right now.
    Good luck with the reviews. I’m beginning to think mine will never get written, but I know they will. Eventually.

    If your smelling snow, you keep it up your way. 🙂 I am so not ready for this weather. We have rain all next week bringing the cooler weather and I am not ready.

    Have a great week and happy reading!

    I’m so excited to see the HoHoHo Readathon sign up again. I signed up right away.
    I’ve joined the Sunday Post again for the first time in almost a year. I’ve been wanting to for weeks.. but now it felt like the right time. I’m so excited!
    Happy reading!

    Just a suggestion. Please make it possible to follow or like your blog in *multiple* and obvious ways, because sometimes the preferred way isn’t possible. My WordPress blog is particularly fussy about Blogger and Comments and Following and such. 🙄. I feel bad visiting your blogs without letting you know in some way that I was there.

    Maybe once a week we should do a blog follow where we let each other know what works on each other’s blogs and what doesn’t. ☝🏻🧝🏻‍♀️💕

    Busy, busy week for everybody! I’m still working on the book review I was supposed to get posted yesterday on my sparkling new blog for Cozy Mysteries, Romantic Suspense, and Sweet Romance. Almost done with it. Whew!

  16. Juli @ A Universe in Words

    The weather has been flipflopping here as well, from dropping to freezing temperatures and now I’m enjoying a blue sky with sun and am gonna put my laundry up to dry outside… I hope participating is up for the next readathon! I’m dreading the impact of the start of the semester on my reading, but that’s why I’m back on the audiobooks! I hope you have a lovely week 🙂

    It does seem like a lot of work to host a read-a-thon, and if you didn’t have a bunch of participation I can see how you’d feel reluctant to continue.

    I will be reviewing The Last Close Call this week also. Loved it! Looking forward to your thoughts, Kimberly.

    It has been so cold and rainy here. And of course it gets darker so early now. I’m not a fan! The big news here is the Michigan/ Michigan State game. Ouch.
