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.

Hope you are all hanging in there. I had to smile this week when I heard one person on a podcast saying they were eating off paper plates some days because they were tired of doing the dishes. What!

  1. I read one Jill Mansell and really loved it. I’ not sure why I haven’t read more by her. I’m very curious to see what you think of One Perfect Summer. If we didn’t have a dishwasher I would definitely be using paper plates and I’m not sure how much quarantine would affect that!

  2. Hanging in by the skin of my teeth. There’s barely four hours left to this Monday and I’ve just gotten my “It’s Monday” post up!
    I love Anne Tyler and almost, almost ordered her new hardcover online yesterday. I didn’t and bought something in paperback instead. I don’t like photographs on book covers, so I hope that trend is on its way out. I listened to Becoming on audio and it’s really interesting how so many women I know of all different ages and reading tastes (including both my daughter and my mother) have all liked that book so much. There’s family, politics, women’s history, social justice issues, and the behind-the-scenes glimpse of celebrity life.

    1. Laurie – exactly on the subject of the title Becoming. I so admire someone who lives out of good strong values – yes became a celebrity but from very humble origins.

  3. I like seeing the summery type reads coming out, although I guess in your area it’s going in the opposite direction huh? And paper plates haha. I’ll admit we’ve used ’em a few times. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a safe and healthy week!

  4. Oooh, I want to read Clock Dance by Anne Tyler – I missed that one! Also glad to hear you are enjoying Michelle’s book (after listening to it on audio, we’re on a first-name basis now ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

    It’s May now, so start setting aside some 400+ page books for #BigBookSummer at the end of the month! (Big Book Winter, in your case).

    Enjoy your books this week, Kathryn, and thanks for hosting!

  5. I actually am loving doing dishes – even asked my husband not to fix the dishwasher! The warm water is therapy for my hands and I can stitch, type and write almost pain-free! Yea!
    One Perfect Summer sounds so intriguing! I’m gonna have to pick that one up! Thank you for hosting!

  6. We haven’t gone to paper plates yet, but I thought about it. LOL

    The Mansell book looks good. I have the Brenda Novak book to read. That looks good too. I hope you have a great week!

  7. We have been running the dishwasher every other day!! Nothing to do except read, cook, eat, and open the fridge all day. LOL!!

    I like the looks of IT STARTED WITH A SECRET.

    Take care, and have a great first week of May!!

  8. I would probably use paper plates if I had any. Running the dishwasher every other day or handwashing my plastic patio plates gets to be a pain. I’ve actually treated us to take out a couple times, too, since even cooking gets old. The oven died yesterday, so right now I am grilling more–which is not my forte.

    It Started with a Secret sounds good. Hope you have a nice week.

  9. I’ve not done paper plates yet but in the past I *may* have resorted to a sleeping back when I hadn’t laundered the sheets….
    Some of those book covers really caught my eye.

  10. I stand with the paper plate person. With the kids home all the time Iโ€™m running the dishwasher every second day because they seem unable to use the same cup or plate more than once. Love the cover of One Perfect Summer.

    Wishing you a great reading week and good health

  11. I had to smile at the comment about eating off paper plates due to being sick of doing dishes. I’m about one dishwasher load away from that!
