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.

Welcome in one and all. Hope you are now all getting your 2019 reading groove sorted.  As part of the new year I went on Goodreads and got realistic about that TBR list! I brought it down from over 1600 to 241. And… maybe I’ll even cut that back a little more.

What I read last week:

I loved the Marilla book – so well written and researched. Just captured her perfectly.  Finished Cowboy Seal Homecoming on audio and The Victory Garden is one for review.

What I am reading now:

So I was able to pick one up off my own TBR shelf this time. I see I got it in 2017 from a book fair. Published way back in 2002

  1. Oh, I’d love to read the Marilla book! I am newish to Anne of Green Gables but definitely a fan. So impressed by your whittling down your TBR list. Mine is on a spreadsheet rather than on Goodreads, but I think it is close to (maybe over!) 1000. It’s a list I’ve kept up for over 15 years, so I’m sure I could reduce it a BIT.

    Enjoy your books this week – and thanks for hosting!

  2. Wow that’s an awesome TBR reduction! And I was happy to see your review of Here and Now and then since I’ve been eyeing that one after seeing another review. Sometimes time travel works for me and sometimes it doesn’t! 🙂

    Have a great week!

  3. Glad to hear you enjoyed Marilla. I am still working on review books, but then I am diving into it. Cowboy books are always fun. Hope you have a great week.


  4. I have True Places on my Kindle…I should read it soon.

    Enjoy your week, and I must confess that my Goodreads TBR is all about books I might read some day, and I seldom pay attention to the list. Until I actually get the books to match those titles.

    Thanks for sharing and hosting.
