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.

Line break

So this week we are using the new Inlinkz, hopefully no different to what it was like before. I’ll monitor to make sure its working. If unsure check here how to link but should be okay.

Hope most of you are surviving your winter. We are having a hot summer with very little  rain. Let’s just say everything is brown!  This last week after eating breakfast I have been out stacking a load of firewood delivered to the front that I have to wheelbarrow to the back and stack. Almost done.

What I read last week:

I loved The Wednesday Wars – it was so good and definitely deserving of the Newbery Honor Medal that it received. If you ever feel drawn to reading a middle grade book – read this one. Or Okay for Now by the same author which I totally adored. Both books are for 12/13 year olds and up to whatever age.

What I am reading now:

Still listening to The Moon Sister by Lucinda Riley.

And reading

Up next:

I haven’t made my mind up on what I will read next.

  1. Ah, hot and dry sounds lovely – our 7-day forecast shows no sun after tomorrow, just clouds, rain, snow, and a mix of rain & snow!

    I so want to read The Wednesday Wars – need to make time for it – glad you enjoyed it so much.

    Enjoy your books this week – I’m sure you’ll pick something good for your next one (isn’t that so much fun, choosing your next book when you don’t have any specific commitments?)

    Thanks for hosting!

  2. We’ve had a pretty easy winter so far in Massachusetts, but that could still change! Today might have been another snow day (we had one last Tuesday) but we were already off today for the Presidents’ Day holiday. Made soup and am staying in all day, so I’m treating it like a snow day! I think I’ve read a book by Gary Schmidt before, but can’t remember the title. The cover of Grace After Henry is calling out to me. Did you like the book?

  3. We are still in winter mode. 🙂

    The Wednesday Wars does look fun.

    ENJOY your week, and thanks for coming by my blog.

    P. S. I posted about IT’S MONDAY!! on my Instagram and Facebook Pages. Everyone should know about your meme. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  4. We’re looking at fairly mild temperatures but I think we got your share of rain plus some. I think our area is supposed to get around 12 inches this week. I don’t mind a rainy day but I’m starting to forget what the sun looks like! Anne Gracie is on my TBR. Her books look really good and I’ve got the 2nd book in the Seven Sisters coming up on my audio TBR. I love the concept of the story.

  5. Oh man, we got a ton more snow overnight. And since we had an abnormally cool fall here, it’s starting to feel like winter has been going on for 34892483249032 years at this point. The snow really *is* pretty, though, but I’m absolutely looking forward to sweating my butt off at the park with my daughter this summer. 🙂

    I finished Emily Giffin’s All We Ever Wanted last night, and then started Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren. Not sure what’s up next after that!


  6. It’s been unseasonably warm here – gives the feeling that spring is just around the corner. I’m happy to be participating in IMWAYR this week! Have a great week Kathryn!

  7. I’m a bit tired of winter weather at this point. Another 8 inches of snow fell yesterday. I’ll post a pic on Instagram today. You’re probably getting as much exercise moving the wood as I am moving the snow 🙂

  8. It’s snowing right now. I would enjoy a bit of summer, but that will come in its due time.

    I enjoy middle grade stories. I’ll have to check out The Wednesday Wars. Thanks for sharing.

  9. California has had more snow than Boston which is unusual. We’ve also had rain, flooding, roads washed out. Fortunately near us the damage has been minimal.

  10. I think I did the link thing right! Still snowy around here but it’s almost March- won’t be long til we get a little better weather. 🙂

    Hope you have a fabulous week!


  11. In north Florida we’ve had a mild winter – only two days freezing.
    Wednesday’s Wars looks like fun. I haven’t read an Anne Gracie book for a number of years. Hope you enjoyed Marry in Scandal. Happy Reading!

      1. Thanks Laurel-Rain – I think I picked up last weeks code but have fixed it, I see you’ve put yours in so that’s good! Ah yes – brown summers!
