It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Goodbye July

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 last week I talked about maybe washing a quilt and if I’d get it dry in the winter weather. Well I did wash it, got it mostly sort of dry outside and finished it off by the fire that evening and then the airing cupboard. Mission accomplished!

The lovely thing is when I presented it to Miss 4 year old for her birthday, she loved it and responded so well. The response warmed my heart and will be the one I ever remember. Later that day she told her grandmother (my sister) “When I roll up in this on the floor, no one is to come near me  with their shoes on!”  If you enjoy quilts and four year olds – photos here.

What I read last week:

One from the TBR, one from the library and one audiobook finished.

What I am reading now:

This one is from the library. I wondered if I’d just return it – unread! Just a little overfed with WW2 fiction. But…. I picked it up to try out and I am still reading at page 319! Well written, pulled me in. And it is scary to think of all those Nazi who escaped to other countries and often not much was done about it. It goes 530 pages, and I don’t think it will be long before I make it.

I have just started a reread via audiobook version this time. It’s almost 20 hrs long so will take me awhile no doubt.

  1. A lovely quilt! And a good reading week. I like it when books surprise me by drawing me in. Much better when it’s like beating on a dark house to get into the story!

  2. The quilt is gorgeous! The Huntress looks good but I admit to steering clear of books that exceed even 400 pages. I am missing some good books no doubt. Sometimes I will listen to the longer books.
    Have a happy week with Happy Reading!

  3. I read The Shell Seekers many years ago and remember loving it. I just started Things You Save in a Fire, but it’s too soon to tell. Have a great week.

  4. I just got The Bookish Life of Nina Hill on my Kindle the other day and I’ve only heard such amazing things about it. I’m excited to read it 🙂 I loved Things You Save in a Fire when I read it earlier this year. It was my first Katherine Center book but it was so touching and sweet. Hope you enjoy!

  5. The quilt is lovely, and sure to become a life long treasure for your grand niece.
    I was a little reluctant to read Kate Furnivall’s The Guardian of Lies for the same reason you were reluctant to read The Huntress, but also discovered it had offered an interesting new angle.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  6. The quilts are lovely! I like what your grand-niece said.

    I hope you enjoy the Katherine Center book, and I loved The Shell Seekers. I had a movie based on the book, but it was a VHS format, so I no longer have it.

    Enjoy your week.
