It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 29th May

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!

I had a really good reading week, every book I read I enjoyed and reviews will be up for them later except for A Man Called Ove. I finished listening to it this week, it was well narrated and I enjoyed the story of a grumpy, law fixated guy who just couldn’t prevent himself from helping others and really he was much loved!
I always um and ah over what book I will listen to next and I finally settled on Goodnight From London, and so far I’m enjoying that too. I don’t go looking for books set in the time of WW11 but … I seem to find my way to them.

  1. I didn’t know what to expect from A Man Called Ove, so I was really surprised as I got into the book. Enjoyed it. I’m reading Small Great Things right now myself and don’t want to put it down. So good!


  2. I don't favor books set around WWI and WWII, but since you do, it's great when you can find a good one in that setting 🙂

    I haven't read A Man Called Ove and there is much division over whether folks liked it or not. I did read Beartown though and enjoyed it. I might like both the Colgan and the Monroe book, and I have Small Great Things on my Kindle already and haven't gotten to it yet. Why? I don't know. I lose track of authors and/or series that I really enjoyed– maybe too much distraction from the overload of good titles I find on other readers' blogs!


  3. I am glad to be back posting and viewing reading blogs. I enjoyed A Man Called Ove also. I would not have learned how to pronounce OVE, if I had not listened to the audio. Goodnight from London looks good too. I will have to give that one a look see.


  4. Good to see that you enjoyed the audio for A Man Called Ove. That one is on my Wishlist. I enjoy books set in WWII era as well, and Goodnight from London caught my eye. Have a great week!


  5. I laughed out loud how you said you don't go looking for WWII books but they seem to find you.

    The reason I laughed is because the same thing happens to me. 🙂

    I am having a lovely visit with my sisters and may not get to visit too many blogs. ENJOY your reading week.

  6. I do enjoy a good book set in WWII as well, for some reason. And the Cafe by the Sea looks like a place I'd like to go and have lunch!

    Glad it was a good reading week. Enjoy your week ahead. 🙂


  7. I also enjoy books from the WWII era.

    The Cafe By the Sea looks very tempting, too. And I should be starting Beach House for Rent this week as well.

    Thanks for hosting…and for sharing.


  8. I loved A Man Called Ove and liked the movie too. Glad you enjoyed it. I also really liked Small Great Things. One of my favorite books of 2016.

    The Jenny Colgan book looks good. I've got that on my list for later this summer. Beach House for Rent sounds interesting too.

    Hope you have a great week!
