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.

A quiet week, lots of rain! And then we met our shortest day yesterday. Yay.

Well a little bit of a kerfuffle this week because we found out our quarantining at the border has been not that stringent and then two people from the UK were let out with the virus without testing on compassionate grounds, and there tended to be some large holes in their story. Hmm things then turned to custard!  We’ve had more coming in too as more NZers come home. So I am back to being cautious because I can’t trust what is going on at the border.

  1. Yes things are getting scary again out there our “officials” say its because more people are being tested but I am still erring on the side of caution. We are venturing out more but always in masks (which the majority of the “cowboys” that live in my county think are unnecessary because they have the head up their butts) and will continue to do so until there is a vaccine. I haven’t read Susan Elizabeth Phillips in way too long I’m getting this one Kathryn. Thanks for sharing your Monday thoughts with us 🙂


  2. My book club is doing a Nalini Singh next month — I’m looking forward to it.

    I’m in the US, and apparently most of our states have decided that if we ignore it hard enough, COVID-19 will go away. Like magic, as our president said. I am not confident that this approach will be successful…

  3. Yikes. I agree better to be safe. Things are far from over. Thousands and thousands of new cases here in the US, after many states opened things up – scary. Glad we live in a state (and region) that are making decisions based on data. Even as things slowly ease up a bit here, we are staying careful, too.

    Can’t wait to hear what you think of What You Wish for, since I enjoyed her last novel.

    Enjoy your books this week, stay safe, and thanks for hosting the linkup!

  4. I’ll watch for your thoughts on the new SEP book. Its been a while since I’ve read one of hers but they’re usually enjoyable. Good idea to keep safe. I don’t think this virus will ever be gone and much like the flu (though apparently more contagious) will be a huge seasonal issue. We will need to be vigilant on all fronts, that’s for sure.

  5. I hope you don’t have too much trouble with Covid there. NZ has done such a good job handling it up to now. We unfortunately, as is widely known, have not been nearly as successful in the US, sadly. Even compensating for the larger country size it’s disheartening that our country hasn’t done better. Ah well… hope you have a nice week ahead of you! Be safe!

    1. Greg it is mind boggling for the USA. We are smaller and did do better early on. its going to be interesting as so many more people come back into the country.
