It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

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 organise 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. And here we are!

Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join them!

It’s been a quiet week for me, some reading and gardening (although not nearly enough gardening!).
Watched some sport over the weekend.  Nothing wrong with quiet!    

What I read last week:

  1. Great list Kathryn, I've got my copy of Beatriz William's The Infinite Sea on my TBR shelf I can't wait to read it. She is one of my all time faves. Right now I'm reading and enjoying Heartsong Cottage.
    Sorry I haven't been around much lately 😦


  2. I'm not a rugby fan, but I always enjoy watching the All Blacks do the haka.

    I'm also in my first year of retirement and enjoying more reading and gardening too. Love it that I can read all night if the mood takes me and not have to go to work feeling like death warmed up!

    Beatriz Williams is a very popular author judging by the comments. The Secret Life of Violet Grant has been sitting in my reading pile for a while. It may be time to bump it up the list.

    Enjoy your week.


  3. Quiet is good! I like the cover of Along an Infinite sea, it looks like a glamorous resort somewhere and I'd like to be there! Hope you have a nice week- with lots of gardening. It's always nice to spend time outdoors.


  4. I'm jealous of how many books you read each week! How do you find the time? I've been especially slow lately.

    My book group and I really enjoyed The Language of Flowers – hope you like it!

    Enjoy your books this week –


    Book By Book


  5. Absolutely nothing wrong with a quiet week. And you certainly got a lot of great reading done. I haven't read any of the authors you've got listed here, but I've got several Nora Roberts books on my TBR list. Hope to get to at least one of them very soon. Thanks for hosting, and happy reading this week!


  6. I agree, quiet weeks are good! I haven't read anything by Beatriz Williams but the cover for Along the Infinite Sea drew me in. I'm thrilled to hear it's also a wonderful read. Oh yay, you've got The Language of Flowers up next … I'm doing a happy dance lol. Hope you love it!! Stars of Fortune is on my reading list, just not sure when.
    Have a wonderful week Kathryn and happy reading and gardening 🙂


  7. Ha, I just had to scroll up to see if I was reading that! Of course I'm listening to it!! And yes heard great things about The Language of Flowers so picked it up at the library.


  8. Ah yes! I didn't watch it live but watched later in the day! You have to have some interest in rugby here or you just get left for dust! My love is cricket but we are not nearly as good at that as rugby!
    I just read what I see, not particularly because it's two months away from Christmas. Likely to read none around that time!


  9. Looks like a good reading week. A new Nora Roberts book, it looks like a good book. The Christmas book you read has some authors I love, I will need to see if I can find it!


  10. I don't know where that place is on the cover of Along the Infinite Sea, but I want to be there! I've finally backed up my hard drive so now I'm cleaning up all the photos I've had saved on it forever. That means a lot of trips down memory lane. My husband and I have vacation fever now, even though we just got back! Enjoy your week!


  11. Hope more gardening time comes your way. We just picked up leaves and pulled out all the annuals. Glad the Nora Roberts trilogy got off to a great start. I have yet to read the Cousin O'Dwyer trilogy. Have a great week.


  12. I guess I can work out what sport you watched over the weekend? I have to admit I really didn't care and didn't see any of the world cup. I was once into sport, but not for a long time now!

    And I'm kinda depressed to see Christmas books already but guess that's inevitable! Argh!


  13. The Secret of Everything looks good. I read Flight Lessons years ago – before I was reviewing. As I recall I liked it even though it is relationship drama which is not my fav genre.
    I hope you have another good week reading and gardening.
