It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

t’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 ofUnleashing Readersdecided 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!

My Week

Can you believe it’s the last day of November? Hope all in the USA had a great Thanksgiving holiday.

It was my turn to host my knitting group this week (just four of us). And they all went home with books from my bookshelf which was great.

We also had a family Christmas gathering of extended family on my mother’s side at a cousin’s place. That was very pleasant too and great to catch up with them all.

  1. Okay, I guess a reasonable reason! Sorry to see this series go as she has it peopled with people she could pick up stories for! Ask her has she ever thought of self publishing like Marie Force! Anyway I am sure her new series will be fantastic, she has the gift!


  2. Well I think the reason they're doing it this time is to increase her sales. She has another new series coming out starting in late May. I'm hosting Sarah on my blog she's actually ending my blog blast this year and she's talking a bit about her new upcoming series.


  3. The Sea Front Tea Rooms looks like my kind of book and I've really enjoyed the Sarah Morgan books I've read though I haven't started this series yet. The knitting group sounds like so much fun and what a great way to get rid of some books!


  4. I really need to read The Ones We Trust – I'm just waiting to find the time! Your knitting group sounds like fun and how nice that they were all able to take some books home 🙂

    Hope you have a nice week!!!


  5. Hi Kathryn! I'm finally arriving to take part in IMWAYR! You look like you are doing a bang-up great job! I think everyone is intrigued with your reading list too! So, it's off to the holiday season – hope yours is all you want it to be! And Happy Reading!!


  6. I hope you love The Seafront Tearooms as much as I did. It was such a sweet read. I see there is a different cover.

    Awesome on sending folks home with books. Love that. I am always lending my books out. 🙂

    You had quite a few posts last week.

    ENJOY this week – I can't believe it is the last day of November either. CRAZY how fast time flies.

  7. Congrats to Greg and Kathy!!

    I've read another of Vanessa Greene's books and really quite enjoyed it – a nice light read almost.

    The holidays are really great for catching up with family, especially extended family! I hope you have a lovely week!


  8. Hi Kathryn, I love Sarah Morgan's Puffin Island series, too bad its now being bundled with other HQN authors here in the US but I've been getting the UK versions. I'm just finishing Along the Infinite Sea by Beatriz Williams and am finally going to start catching up on my Outlander series reading with A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Great post!


  9. I can't believe Thanksgiving is over already. Time is really flying.

    Your books look so good. The Sarah Morgan book has my interest. Hope you enjoy your reading and have a great week!


  10. I daren't think about it being the end of November as it just reminds me I have to start getting ready for Christmas. I never do anything till the fist of December and it had felt like a long time away! You have such a great mix of books on your weekly list. I want those tea cups!


  11. Some of my extended family lumped Thanksgiving and Christmas into one big celebration this weekend too. There are so many of us, it's just easier that way.

    My dad and grandfather love Zane Grey but I don't think I've ever read one of his books. I have read one or two Louis L'Amours though!

    Enjoy your week!

  13. A family Christmas gathering already Kathryn? Argh! Mind you, I did have an end of year drinks thing to go to last Sunday so I can't be too shocked. I know a few friends who are having their Xmas work functions soon so I guess everyone has to get in and book something before they run out of dates.

    Have a lovely week!


  14. Hehe about the Zane Grey – same here until I needed a challenge book that was published before I was born! Liked Blood Kiss, thought it was interesting and low key with couple of the Brothers getting there nose into the action.


  15. We had an extended family Christmas gathering this weekend, too! So much fun when we all get together. Love both the cover and title of The Seafront Tea Rooms, and I enjoyed quite a few Barbara Delinski books years ago.


  16. The Seafront Tea Rooms looks tempting….and I enjoyed that Barbara Delinksy book. I read it before my blogging days, but I still have a copy on my shelves.

    Enjoy your week, and congrats to Greg and Kathy.


  17. Thanks again for the giveaway! I agree, December already? Good grief. Hard to believe.

    I love the cover of the Seafront Tearooms. And glad you got to get together- it's that time of year when it's nice to see family for the holidays. Hope you have a wonderful week 🙂


  18. It is hard to believe November is at an end and time to think of Christmas. Glad you had a nice get together. What did you think of Blood Kiss? I haven't read a Zane Grey since I was in middle school! Congrats to the winners. Have a great week.


  19. Congrats to Greg and Kathy. I loved The Seafront Tea Rooms, hope you do too, I think I read that one, not audio. But I picked up The Secret of Everything using an audible credit, hopefully next week for it.

    I think I'd like your knitting group, not that I can follow a pattern or anything, I can just knit a square lol but it would be fun to get some tips and talk books. Glad you enjoyed the family get together, takes some doing getting everyone together with our busy lives.
    Have a wonderful week and happy reading 🙂
