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.

I didn’t get a lot of reading done this week as I wasn’t feeling well. However I am coming right and that is something I really appreciate! Also I wasn’t feeling like visiting blogs but now up and active again!

The weather has been glorious although I think due to break. I walked on the beach the last two days and it felt like paradise.

What I read last week:

I finished The Sound of Glass – one that I really liked, definitely one for my keeper shelf. I know this one was well received when it published but I waited for the paperback to arrive as the hardback was too expensive!

What I am reading now:

Still listening to Come from Away by Genevieve Graham. I was happy to hear that it continued on with the next generation from the previous book of hers that I had listened to.

I am still reading this one but should finish it today or tomorrow. It’s one that was written in the 1920’s and is rather fascinating.  Four women on holiday in Italy for a month, all quite different.

  1. I’m sorry you got sick, but so happy you are feeling better and up and about. Walking along a beach sounds lovely. We aren’t close to a beach around here; it’s more of a regional park of paths by the bay which smells like rotten eggs, probably due to the nature reserve around it.
    I have several of Karen White’s books on my TBR. I wasn’t a big fan of On Folly Beach but will try to give other books of hers a try.

  2. I love the cover of The Sound of Glass – the colors of beach glass are so pretty and well, beach-like! Also love your description of walking on your own beach as like paradise – sounds lovely! We went to the beach 2 weeks ago, but it was very cold and windy – still nice to be near the ocean, though.

    The Enchanted April is one of many classics I keep meaning to get to – glad you’re enjoying it.

    Have a good week, enjoy your books, and thanks for hosting the link-up!

  3. Happy Monday Kathryn, sorry you were under the weather 😦 glad you’re feeling better
    I loved the Sound of Glass but then White is a fave of mine and I’m listening to Come From Away right now too and yes OMG Danny and Audrey’s story was sooooo poignant and i absolutely LOVED that narrator but Michelle Ferguson’s narration is fab too. Have a great week
    I just finished Stone Bridges by Carla Neggers and am just starting on Sarah Morgan’s latest, One Summer in Paris, she is sooooo good. 🙂 xo

  4. Oh my…I am so sorry you weren’t feeling well. I missed you last week and wanted you to see my post of cozy nooks because many of the quilts I made were there. Stay healthy! Your book choices this week look yummy!

  5. Hi Kathryn,

    Sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling the best, and pleased to know that you are now on the road to recovery.

    The weather here, in the south of the UK, has been pretty nondescript, although yesterday there was a welcome break and spring was really in the air, with wall to wall sunshine and blue skies.

    I really like the sound of ‘Breaking Glass’, however the jury is out on ‘The Girl He Used To Know’, so I’ll wait to see what you think of it first!

    Thanks for hosting and have a good week 🙂

  7. The weather was briefly nice here and I made it down to our local historical garden to photograph flowers and chickens.


  8. Oh, I’m glad you’re feeling better. Being sick is no fun at all, especially when we don’t even feel like reading.

    I like the look of The Enchanted April…beautiful cover, too. I want to read The Girl He Used To Know.

    Enjoy your week!

  9. I love walking on a beach, listening to waves roll in. Glad you’re feeling better, and hope that continues!

    Have a wonderful week! 🙂
