The Sunday Post #71 (5.10.15)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey. 

All my tv shows are slowing winding down, which is a good thing...that only means more reading time!!! Luckily for me, my shows seemed to have been saved from the cutting block. Only one got axed and one ended (About a Boy and Parks & Rec). The rest (Madame Secretary, Greys, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, The Blacklist, and Downton Abbey) are saved. Of course, I only have a short respite as I do have a few summer shows - Mistresses, Rizzoli & Isles and Royal Pains - that I watch and I'm curious to see how The Astronaut Wives Club turns out - though I do want to read the book first. What about you, how did your shows make out?

Have a great week everyone!!!

  1. I am happy that none of my favorite shows were axed, either...I am looking forward to some of the summer ones, like Rizzoli and Isles.

    I have been ogling Moonlight on Butternut Lake...enjoy! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  2. It's great when shows don't get cut. Especially when you live them. My favourite show Arrow didn't get cut which am so grateful for. Am obsessed with it. Happy Reading.

  3. I watch Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife. All saved.
    I read the first two Butternut Lake books so I'll watch for your review of the new one. Have a great week!

  4. I have so many Grey's on my hard drive, I am thinking about skipping! We are behind of course and then heard the latest developments out of USA, guess I'll wait and see!
    Have just read the first Butternut book, was okay but not sure that I will read any more.

  5. I've been enjoying Forever and it got axed - alas. Some shows we get here in Australia are way behind, so it's handy to know what's axed so I know not to get too involved. I was yet to start watching the latest season of The Following and now I know it's axed I won't bother... :-)

  6. I am sorry to see About A Boy go, it was good. The rest of my shows I believe are safe. Looking forward to Suits this summer. Have a great week.
