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 had a good week. I went to see Little Women. I enjoyed it although didn’t fall totally head over heels in love with this version. It covered some of about three of the books and bounced about in timeline which was a little confusing. But still worth seeing.
Well we are into March already, for most of you that’s a promise of Spring and for some of us a hint of Autumn. And of course this virus hitting the world throws in a little twist. We have one case so far in our biggest city coming in from a plane on Iran. It initiated a lot of panic buying in that city’s supermarkets. Personally I find for me I listen and watch only a limited amount of news each day. So much of it initiates panic in us, that most likely does us more damage than the virus.
What I read last week:
Sofie Ryan’s cozy mystery was very enjoyable and I’ll choose this series to read on into. Julie Buxbaum’s book has at its centre the impact on people’s lives who lost loved ones or were in the 9/11 event, 15 years on. YA but appropriate for anyone. She writes so well and it was a 4.5 stars for me.
What I am reading now:
I managed to buy this from a local shop after searching. It published last Monday – Australian author, only read the prologue but am into it.
