It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? A Seasonal Change!

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 we are into Spring here in this part of the world and indeed I see a few blossoms appearing and bulbs are going wild. True to form we had a beautiful day for the first day of Spring, and then crash / bang, yucky weather since.

Congratulations to the final two winners for August on last week’s link up.

This book is on its way to Australia for Sam Still Reading

And this one all the way to Canada for Words I Write Crazy

And Happy Labor Day to all those celebrating that lovely long weekend. Soak it up.

And then on to this first review book for the month.

What I am reading now…

This book by an Australian author, it was my turn for it at the library. As there are 27 people who have it reserved after me, I knew I wouldn’t get a renewal so it needed to have immediate reading! Love the cover. Can you tell its set mostly in Italy. And the book has such a nice clean new ring to it. The advantage of reserving it way ahead of it hitting the shelf!

I am still listening to Crimes Against a Book Club and enjoying it, wondering how it will all end!

Up next

Most likely this other library read, crisp new hardback. Yummy. This is a book I noted a few bloggers reading and liking so I am hoping as I have never read this author before.

  1. Looks like a fun week of reading. I envy you heading into spring. I’m much more of a spring/summer person than a fall/winter one. Maybe I need to have two homes on opposite sides of the world!


  2. Happy Spring to you, Kathryn!! Of course, Sept. 1 means fall is on the way here, though it is still super hot & humid right now. I love fall & can;t wait for it to cool down a bit so I can get outside more.

    Wow, lots of books for you last week – and lots of variety!

    Enjoy your books this week and thanks for hosting!

  3. Sorry to hear about the yucky weather. It’s cooled off here, so autumn has definitely arrived. Leaves are falling, which means lots of yard work!

    I love the cover of the Christmas March book. I haven’t tried her, but I love Christmas books. ‘Tis the season to see all the new ones coming out which makes me happy!

    Have a great week!

    1. The Book Dep just emailed to say it is on its way. Yeah the weather is atrocious here too, some of the coldest we have had, even the snow fields are getting snow! Oh well Spring will come back I guess.


  4. Glad you’re seeing some signs of spring! We’re moving into fall here (well, sort of, we’ll still get some hot days, but you know it’s coming) and I think I’m ready!

    I love that cover of If Books Could Kill!
