It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? October!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are 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 your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

And so we come to October. We started daylight saving here, we always have a long one. I’ll feel a bit hung over most likely for a few days. Surprising what a difference one hour makes.

What I read last week:

I really enjoyed my reading week, all my books were very good. Loving Jennifer Ashley’s cozy mystery series. and How to Walk Away sort of pulled me in and made me just go on reading.

What I am reading now:

And I am listening to…

Up next:

This is a YA book and was recommended by a librarian. It is #3 in a series and I haven’t read the other two but think it’ll stand alone enough.  It is about a religious cult. Fleur Beale is a New Zealand author. I haven’t read her before so I guess its time!

    1. I will have a short review up next week Pat, but the short one is I gave it 5 stars. It kind of reminds me of what’s happening in Washington re appointment of new judge. Dare I say that out loud!!


  1. I love the Jennifer Ashley series! I think it’s one of the cozy series that I’m really the most excited about. What did you think of Emily? I like her though I don’t think she’s a favorite though I know many people love her. I really enjoy all of Montgomery’s books with the exception of Mistress Pat. The cover of The Lilac Bouquet is gorgeous! I’d read it just for the flowers. Beartown is on my maybe list so I’m really curious to see your thoughts on it!


  2. Looks like you had good reading last week. Florida voted not to continue Daylight Savings changes which I am in favor of.
    I’ve heard good things about Beartown. I really enjoyed The Lilac Bouquet and hope you are enjoying it too. Happy Reading and Listening!


  3. I think I heard Beartown was good. I’ll look up that Lilac Bouquet one. I started the audiobook for Anne of Green Gables. I forgot how that girl can talk. I think I’ll have to multitask while listening to it because I’m worried I won’t be able to finish it in time.


  4. I listened to How to Walk Away and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope you like Beartown. It was one of my favorites last year and its sequel, Us Against You has been one of my favorites this year.


  5. At least we fall back this time of year. An extra hour of sleep the first night makes me happy. Great list of titles this week. I love Lucy Maud Montgomery, but Emily of New Moon was never my favorite. I have it here. Maybe I should try again to see if my opinion has changed.
