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!

Well and another week flies by. I am a bit obsessive – I have been quilting every minute I get, then some reading and er… very little housework. Don’t visit! I did manage to walk most days and tinker in the garden… a little.  That was my week and it flew by. I have made myself a list for today of things I really need to do and stop avoiding these simple little tasks!                                   

What I read last week:

Two review books read.  Jodi Thomas outdid herself on Wild Horse Springs. Loved it.

Finished this audiobook which was time travel historical romance and was a good listen with a fun story so will most likely listen to the series as time goes by.

What I am reading at present:

From the TBR shelf. I know many of you raved about his one when it was published, like a dutiful reader I bought it and there it sat…. until now. Already hooked into it.

  1. Sounds like a great week to me! I had my catch-up day yesterday – finally felt better & tackled all the things that had been piling up. Feels good to be productive & get things done!

    Enjoy your books this week –


    Book By Book


  2. Hello, I am new to your blog. I just quit working and now have the time to “finish a book”! Thank you for this linkup, I am really enjoying reading about these books!


  3. Ha! I'm sitting in my living room right now going through blog posts thinking, when did this place get to be such a mess? So you're not alone lol! Virutal visitors only please 😛 I'll be cleaning this afternoon before I have to go back to work tomorrow. Enjoy your reads!


  4. True to the Highlander looks like a good one to suggest to all the Outlander fans who are looking for a new author to read! I have read Accidents of Marriage and thought it was good, although a difficult topic for me to read about!


  5. Quilting, reading and a little housework – sounds like the perfect combination! I have been indulging in a little more reading at the moment while I'm on school holidays, its very relaxing! I like the look of Accidents of Marriage and The Chocolate Thief has such a catchy title! Enjoy your books and pursuits this week!


  6. Have you been quilting for a long time, Kathryn? My mother-in-law loves to quilt and, maybe one of these days, I'd like to get involved; she often quilts with a group of women and they have so much fun. It's nice to take a break from the “chores” and do something fun! I'm glad you had a good reading week and thanks for hosting the link up! -Tara at


  7. Seems like a lot of people are doing things other than reading at the moment – mine was TV watching so nowhere near as productive as your quilting. My housework stands neglected to. Maybe this week.


  8. My daughter would probably enjoy Wild Horse Springs. I will say it has a beautiful cover. Hope you keep enjoying your reading and quilting.

  9. I was a 'don't visit' house for a long time. But now we have a woman coming to clean every two weeks since hubby can't keep up and I am either at work or on computer. So now it is okay to come visit.
    You talked me into it – I went to NG and the Jodi Thomas title was still available so I picked it up.
    Your other books look good too. Happy Reading, quilting and gardening!


  10. I like time travel historical romance so interested in True to the Highlander. I haven't done much house cleaning either this week and with two teens in the house it needs to get done!


  11. The Chocolate Thief sounds like fun. I liked On Second Thought and hope she keeps writing books like that.

    I desperately need to clean my apartment but I only got a little done this weekend. Hopefully I'll get it done this week. Hope you have a great week.


  12. I thought it was a quick week too. And reading and quilting sound way better than housework! Glad your reads were good- there are so many time travel stories out there these days and it's nice that so many are good. Love that title The Chocolate Thief. 🙂

    Have a nice week!
