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.

Line break

Has anyone else been tuning in to Anne Bogel’s interviews with various authors – Stay at Home Book Tour. I think many of you would find some of your favourite authors. I’ve only listened to Kimmery Martin and Ariel Lawhon, but so many more I want to tune into. Such a great idea while we are all sheltering at home. I am sure its going to add to my TBR.

I hope you and all your loved ones are staying well. I find this book community so great for keeping informed with what is going on for everyone all over the world.

What I read last week:

Delightful. I look forward to the next one.

What I am reading now:

Set in Australia as WW2 ends – how does a woman journalist fare?

I am also thoroughly enjoying listening to Little Beach Street Bakery. Oh my that puffling is so cute.

Up next:

I need something fast paced and absorbing so I am back tracking in this series to read this. A publicist from Hachette NZ sent me this a few years ago when I read and reviewed one of the other Cincinnati series books. Now is the perfect time! Thank you Helen!

  1. Hi there, happy reading everyone. Thank you for sharing this wonderful blog.
    By the way, I am new in blogging and I hope you can support me. Just recently, I made a challenge to myself to visit at least 10 blogs for the next 21 days. As I visit blogs, I will leave comment and put your link on my blog too. Hope you can visit my blog too.
    I followed your blog too.


  2. Happy Monday Kathryn we’re on week 4 of staying in we’ve not left the house except to go to drive through pharmacy since March 17th. I’m just hoping that it doesn’t get worse for you now that you’re heading into fall and winter since a lot of “experts” think it might be a new seasonal thing.
    I just finished Sarah Morgan’s May release Family For Beginners-so good and I’m just starting Deal With the Devil by Kat Rocha
    and I’m listening to book one in the Stillhouse Lake series-very creepy
    stay safe
    ps I bookmarked the stay at home book tour to check out later


    1. Yes I don’t know what winter will bring us. I know I’ll pretty much be staying close to home during all this. I am so looking forward to Family for Beginners. I don’t know when I’ll get it though because not sure if any post is coming through from the UK at the moment. Shall wait and see!


  3. Thanks for the heads up on Anne Bogel’s new interview series! I listen to her podcast every week but am soooo far behind, I think I am only up to about Dec 2019 – ha ha! I guess I should give up on catching up and jump to current episodes!

    And thanks for stopping by my Facebook page and leaving a comment on my video! I admit, it took me a minute to realize it was YOU, but then I was delighted you’d come by! Just something new to try – even just listening to/talking on video feels like a bit of social interaction right now!

    Glad you are well and reading some good books! I agree on fast-paced and absorbing – I just finished a thriller!

    Enjoy your books this week & thanks for hosting the linkup, Kathryn – I so enjoy it each week!

  4. Alone in The Dark looks interesting! I hope it’s the read you’re looking for. Happy reading!!


  5. Happy Easter! It is nice connecting with everyone and seeing how they’re doing- I agree. It helps somehow to see how people the world over are doing amidst all the uncertainty!

    Take care and be safe this week!

  6. Thanks for letting me know about the author interviews. I just subscribed so I don’t miss anything.

    The Women’s Pages sounds fabulous. I’ve been meaning to reading The Little Shop of Found Things, but haven’t had time. Thanks for sharing these.
