**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
Because my week limped along, just as I was moving slowly due to a back injury, I only now finished reading and reviewing my third book…and it is Saturday afternoon. I am so glad I finished it, as it kept me guessing and wondering throughout. I love books that do that for me. All three of my books this week were page-turners of one kind or another, all with a bit of mystery. Some more than others.
Movie watching held me captive this week, too, beginning with a Prime Video of Book Club, which I first saw in the theater, but couldn’t wait to watch again. I love savoring a movie that I have already seen, not minding that I know what will happen next. Then, last night I watched a movie starring Naomi Watts and Robin Wright, called Adore. Set in Australia, we are lulled into the beauty of the scenery and the seaside, and then are teased into watching a very unconventional story that might not please most people, but I did enjoy the actors. I also watched The Killing of a Sacred Deer, starring Colin Farrel and Nicole Kidman, a heart-stopping thriller about a surgeon whose family is terrorized by a depraved teenager determined to take revenge on the doctor for a fatal past mistake.
On TV, I enjoyed the first episode in The Sinner, Season II. Detective Harry Ambrose, portrayed by Bill Pullman, returns to solve the mysterious case. Knowing how the first season unfolded, we will be following twists and turns throughout.
So…what else? Let’s grab some coffee, even though it is no longer morning…and take a closer look.

That was my week. What did your week look like? One morning this past week, I had brunch at Mimi’s, while reading this review book. An egg white omelet with strawberries…and a Bloody Mary.
