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!

So welcome in over at my WordPress.com blog where I now reside. Hopefully it will all work out. For link up clicking on the blue button will take you to a page to add in your link and to find everyone else who links up.

As I mentioned last week on this meme there will be some giveaways during August. (My favourite month!).There is always a space for those who link on this meme for the month of August giveaway… but as you can tell the odds of winning on that are low! But still have a go!

So for this week I will randomly draw a number from those who link a post to IMWAYR. I’ll make the draw on Thursday (NZ time) which will be Wednesday for many other areas.  Oh! And this week it is for a book of choice for the winner from the Book Depository.  The winner will be emailed and announced on next week’s post.

What I Read Last Week

This review book is the only book I finished. I was away at the beginning of the week and then had a slightly distracted week!

Currently Reading…

From my recently purchased shelf I am reading the latest in what is turning out to be quite a saga!  It’s good to catch up on this bunch of  women.

Up Next…

I most likely will read this one but then again the reading mood might draw me to something else.

  1. Congrats on moving to WordPress! I hope you like it 🙂 I have done Blogger and WordPress – so far, WordPress is the clear winner. We just switched to self-hosted, which is yet another change LOL. I love Sarah Morgan’s writing style and can’t wait to pick this one up. It’s been on my TBR for ages! Hope you enjoy it 🙂


    1. Hope you enjoy this Sarah Morgan one Megan. It is much more “meatier” than her usual contemp romance. Still has romance but full of secrets and life issues. I liked it very much.


    1. This particular series by Wendy Wax has turned into an “auto read” for me because I always want to see what is happening in the lives of all the women characters.


  2. I love Sarah Morgan’s books! It looks like you need to update your Goodreads profile with the link to this WordPress blog 🙂 Just thought you should know.


  3. I keep meaning to read the Wendy Wax series – especially during summer because the covers are so gorgeously summer – but I haven’t managed it yet. It probably won’t be this summer but hopefully next one! I’m really looking forward to your review of Sold on a Monday. I can understand the distracted week. My reading has been taking a hit lately for the same reason.


    1. Katherine, I think you’ll like the Wendy Wax series and… good on audio as well! Sold on a Monday was good – not as intense as some of her previous ones that I have read, although that said for parents having children sold on you would be intense!


    1. Patty its a luxury isn’t it! I really only do it this month because the pressure of review books, but… that said I am cutting back on “review” books and reading and reviewing by mood will happen more.


  4. The new blog home looks great! I am very impressed by your technical know-how – after 12 years of blogging, I am still a neophyte when it comes to the tech behind it 🙂

    Thanks for the reminder (in the comments above) to fix my link to your blog!

    Hope you enjoy your books this week –


    2018 Big Book Summer Challenge


    1. Sue, I used WordPress when I was a teacher so that helps although it was a paid site. I know I have still missed out on doing some things but so long as I don’t lose the blog I’ll be happy!


  5. I hope the move goes smoothly for you! I always had trouble posting in the comments on your other site, so personally I’m excited to be able to finally comment here.
    Last week I also read Sold on a Monday…Looking forward to your review!


    1. I know Stephanie – it does take a bit of work and I probably haven’t done everything I should, but mostly it is an import from an export so not too bad.


  6. Welcome to WordPress. Not my fave platform, but love the look of your site.
    Wendy Wax is always a good read. I haven’t read this one yet. I’ll need to check it out.
    Hope you have a great week.
