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.

Thanks for “talking among yourselves” last week. After five days of total non access to absolutely anything WordPress, hey presto on Wednesday I was back on. After talking with my internet provider, giving them a really low, snarky rating for the “help” afterwards, a supervisor phoned me back and promised they’d “fix it from their end within five days”. Well I waited and eventually…here I am. What is it about talking with these kind of people that raises mine and I know others blood pressure!

What I read last week:

Really only two books as The Sometime Sisters was an audiobook that I finished during the week. I liked The Book Charmer but… didn’t love it.  Maybe You Should Talk to Someone was both interesting, educational and entertaining.

What I am reading now:

I am listening to The Girl on Legare St by Karen White.

  1. Yay for being back on WordPress! I think talking to those people is so bad for the blood pressure because they rarely actually fix the problem. It’s either someone else’s fault or someone needs to come out and it’ll be 10 days before they can get there and they couldn’t care less. Too bad about The Book Charmer – it had such a gorgeous cover that I wanted it to be a winner. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is the daily deal on Audible and I’m seriously considering it! Have a great week!

    1. The Book Charmer was worth reading and the cover is gorgeous. I want that chair! Maybe You Should Talk to Someone would probably be great on audio. I saw it was the daily deal.


  2. Ugh…I hear you on the internet problems and tech service! I lost my internet for about a week last year, and it was so frustrating, especially when they kept telling me there was something wrong on MY end, and nothing here had changed. Glad you got through that finally!

    I’ve heard lots of good feedback on Maybe You Should Talk to Someone – glad you enjoyed it, too.

    Enjoy your books this week and thanks for hosting – here’s to a trouble-free week!

    1. Ah yes very familiar with the “It’s on MY end! “It must be a common thing they just do, put the blame on the person they are meant to be providing a service.


  3. I sometimes marvel at how Internet access can still be so complicated, especially when a problem arises. You’d think they’d have this figured out by now. 🙂 Or at least that it wouldn’t be so aggravating to have to call them. I absolutely dread anytime I have to call my provider.

    Hope you have a great week!

  4. Glad you are back, and I agree…it does raise blood pressure when you have to talk to tech support. 🙂

    Darn on THE BOOK CHARMER…that cover is so gorgeous. I would think the book would be amazing. Thanks for sharing that.

    ENJOY your week, Kathryn.

  5. Not only blood pressure but I usually am minus some hair by the time i hang up with whatever moron I’m talking to. Ha! Great week choices Kathryn can’t wait to see what you thought of The Sometimes Sisters I reviewed it back a while. Happy Monday!

  6. Hey I’m glad you’re back! It really does suck about the whole issue, that’s super frustrating! I’ll have to check out Maybe You Should Talk To Someone, it’s popping up a lot!
