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.

Hi, hope you are all keeping virus free. It is a bit freaky, I admit now!  Although I do think the toilet paper thing is rather funny.

I am marooned at home and getting a bit of a taste of isolation! My garage door went bang on Saturday and a hinge thing had broken and pinged around everywhere, not damaging my car thank goodness. Just waiting for someone to come to repair it so I can go shopping. I was thinking backpack and 30min walk there and then back to nearest shop, but hopefully can forget that!  I did walk to Church and back though yesterday so that might get me back into the swing of a walking habit if nothing else!  How dependent we are in this modern age!

What I read last week:

Enjoyed  both. Just an Ordinary Family has just been published – Australian author. I loved it. The Sea Glass Cottage is for an upcoming review.

What I am reading now:

I just felt like something different – this is biography/memoir that I think I’ll find interesting. I’ve seen her on You Tube – courageous woman.

Up next:

This is a follow up to Into the Wild so I am looking forward  to reading it next. I like K. A. Tucker’s stories.

  1. I had the spring break in my garage door right after I got home from dropping my son off from school. Luckily I had enough time to get it dealt with so he wasn’t stranded at school but it was a bit crazy! We live a bit out in the country so walking isn’t really an option so without cars we are kind of in trouble! I’ve got the Thayne book coming up and I’m really looking forward to it!

    1. Billy yes she did. I am finding her life so interesting because it kind of syncs with my own lifetime but in different countries and of course doing different things with our lives.


  2. Sorry to hear about your garage door! The car our son usually drives had a burning smell coming from it (!) just before he was to leave for the weekend to visit his girlfriend, so he took the truck (SUV) my husband usually drives, leaving us to do our big shopping trip Saturday with my tiny VW! We managed, though. We currently have two cars needing repairs (other son came home yesterday to tell us the sideview mirror broke off!), so I totally get it about being reliant on our cars! Not to mention that we were just starting to catch up a bit financially … sigh…

    Well, the walking sounds nice, and it looks like you read some good books last week!

    Enjoy your books this week, and thanks for hosting the link-up!

  3. I need to get out for a walk today! It’s going to be warm here in Massachusetts, especially for early March. I had a day at home yesterday because an event was canceled due to coronavirus prevention. It was kind of nice! I wouldn’t mind being quarantined for a short time, I always say, but inactivity that is forced on you is never as enjoyable as when you choose to take a break and forgo outside activities by design!

  4. Thanks for sharing Kathryn. The virus has hit us local from a student studying in Italy. She tested positive at a local hospital and was told to self quarantine herself and her family until the CDC sent back the results. Well apparently the father and her younger sister attended a father daughter dance and a pre dance party so because of their actions they have closed five schools, a hotel where the dance was held (The Ritz) and health officials are scrambling to see if there might be more potentially affected. What is wrong with people


    1. I can’t understand people that put so many at risk, we had someone like that who came in from Iran and then flew to visit another place here in NZ and then back again. It is how this thing is spread. They really need their heads read!


  5. Looking forward to your thoughts on Wild at Heart – I’ve seen it around online lately. Haven’t read this author. I remember seeing Nancy Zieman on television years ago. I hope you enjoy the book! Our garage door has needed springs replaced in the past. I hope yours is an easy fix.

  6. It’s so true how dependent we get, and don’t even realize it sometimes until something breaks down haha. Sorry to hear about your garage door opener!

    Wild at Heart looks good! I’m tempted for that Alaska setting. 🙂

  7. Hope your garage door gets fixed soon. This whole CV19 scare is unbelievable. Worse than Sars. We don’t have many cases in Canada yet.
    I enjoy Thayne’s books – will check this one out. Can’t get Wild at Heart from the library yet – may have to put an order in!
    Have a good week of reading


  8. Oh gosh, I hope your garage door is repaired soon! Getting to walk about does sound like a nice change of pace though. Have a great week Kathryn!
