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.

Hope you are all well. We had some very welcome rain this week and may get some more later this week. I enjoyed my reading although going a little slow at the moment, but I guess I’ll gather momentum again as we do!  Sometimes there is plenty of time for reading and sometimes the pleasure of others company plus chores and other hobbies take precedence!

What I read last week:

The Susan Wiggs book was an okay book, The Cliff House is for review and I did enjoy it. The Woman at 72 Derry Lane by Irish author Carmel Harrington was a riveting listen and covered both domestic abuse and a world disaster in 2004.

What I am reading now:

From my TBR stack from this Australian author…

And about to start listening to…

From this Canadian author

  1. We had the opposite and some much needed dryness. lol It’s been glorious. Yay for some good reading even if a little slow 🙂


  2. It’s always nice to listen to an Irish author around St. Patrick’s Day! I hadn’t heard of this one, but “riveting” sounds good! I read one of Phaedra Patrick’s earlier books — The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper — and enjoyed it. Thanks for hosting!

  3. Too bad the Susan Wiggs was just okay. I’ve read several of hers and they all tend to be pleasant but not especially memorable though there are a couple of exceptions. So glad to see The Cliff House was good. That’s soon up on my list and I”m so looking forward to it. Hope you have a great week!


  4. Come From Away is next on my audio shelf too Kathryn, Genevieve said she really loved this narrator so I can’t wait to listen.
    And I finally am reading for pleasure, just turned in my contract reviews.H
    Have a fab week!

    1. Nice you have some real choice for now! Genevieve kindly contacted me and after listening to the one I won on your blog I was very happy to listen and review.


  5. Sounds like a nice variety of books for you last week – you always find books and authors I haven’t heard of before, so I appreciate that! There are just so many good books in the world waiting to be read!

    Enjoy your books this week & thanks for hosting!
