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.

I had a good reading week, happy with all the books I’ve read. Today I’ve decided to return one book to the library and may borrow it in the future if I feel like a sad read set in WW11. It is held in high regard by many readers and published this year.  I peeked at the end and noticed it had the same kind of ending as a book I read  last year The Stationery Shop  by Marjan Kamali, and I thought, you know what – I can take one book ending like that, but not another just at the moment!

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

I am almost at the end of this and should finish it this Monday as my last book in August. I have really enjoyed it, I love that Downton Abbey feel to the kitchen where Kat the heroine is the cook back late nineteen century. I really like this cozy mystery series. I have NOT peeked at the ending of this one, tempting, I am a bit of a take a look at the ending reader, but being disciplined for this one!

  1. There’s a person in my book club who usually reads the ending first, too! I’m the exact opposite; I hate to even read a review ahead of time because almost everything can seem like a spoiler to me! I’ve been considering starting that mystery series by Jennifer Ashley myself. It sounds good!

  2. Looks like a good reading week for you, Kathryn, and I so get not wanting a sad book right now. Funny thing is, though, that I would never even think of peeking at the ending of a book! ha ha I think that must be one of those “two types of people” things.

    Hope you enjoying your books this week – thanks for hosting the linkup!

  3. When I was younger I ALWAYS read the last few pages first. Using an ereader makes it harder but I DID do it with a book where I felt I needed to prepare myself for a tragic ending to the story.
    Happy reading.
