#IMWAYR, Review

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

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.

Well I had a good week’s reading again this week. Sometimes its really nice to get on a roll like this! I am a listener to the podcast What Shall I Read Next with Anne Bogel. I rarely have any matches with what readers talk about but I just enjoy the book enthusiasm. But this week on podcast Episode 153 I was excited to have read the three books mentioned as favourites, plus some of the others.

We are into Spring now. I even have some beans appearing up out of the garden. Things are starting to grow. The potatoes are in but haven’t appeared and I have a couple of pots of tomatoes to go out once the bad weather is really past. I even have some flowers blooming about. Do I sound like a gardener, well I’m not – I mostly spend my time beating back weeds which I dislike doing.  Mostly the place looks somewhat unkempt!!

What I read last week:

All of these were so good. Tinsel in a Tangle was a short novella and well written. Will have a short review next week for my thoughts on Beartown.  Being Magdalene was a YA book about a girl in a religious cult, very fact based and I was totally engrossed. What can I say about The Simple Wild other than I laughed out loud and cried. Loved it. I just finished listening to The Lilac Bouquet which was a heartwarming read of feuding people going way back and a young couple trying to organise their marriage through it all.

What I am reading now:

I will start listening today to this one – #3 in the series, I just wanted something light to listen to as I potter.  And this series certainly is a lot of fun. Who knew I’d get hooked into a cozy series!

  1. I really like Rhys Bowen’s books – very entertaining! I don’t often use audio books, but hers are perfect for listening to. Happy Reading, and thanks for hosting!


  2. We are cool and rainy today since we are in fall heading toward winter. My gardening is about the same–trying to beat back weeds but it still looks a mess.

    Being Magdelene sounds fabulous. Actually all of these sound good and the covers are wonderful. Hope you enjoy your new reads.

  3. Nice week for you.

    Love the cover on THE LATE BLOOMER’S CLUB.

    Your garden sounds good already. We are still having warm temperatures for fall, but I don’t mind. I love the eat and extended summer.

    Have a great week, Kathryn.

  4. Really nice reading week! I like the sound of your beans but I totally understand about unkempt. Our garden fell apart after hubby wasn’t able to keep up with it.
    Happy Reading this week!

  5. Wow, you had a great reading week! All of your books look good, especially The Late Bloomers’ Club and The Single Ladies of Jacaranda Retirement Village. I’m also curious about The Simple Wild. Enjoy that garden and your books.
