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 really good reading and quilting week! My firewood arrived on Saturday and we wheeled it around near the wood shed but left it out as its not that dried out, needs some more sun and wind!

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

I am joining in with an informal reading challenge on Emilie Richards Readers Page and this month the label is – A book that somehow deals with race relations. I’ve chosen a middle grade book. “Julie Kim just wants to fit in. So, she tries not to draw attention to herself. But when racist graffiti appears at her middle school, Julie must decide between staying silent or speaking out.”. I chose this because I had seen a good review for this book on the Nerdy Book Club blog and plus Colby Sharp, a teacher and someone I follow gave it five stars.

Finding Junie Kim

And about to start listening to this one. A YA book, one I bought in an Audible sale. Reading off my audio shelf as well so not always buying a new audiobook!

Up next:

A Kindle book I pre-ordered last year. A spin off from one of her series I love – First Family.

  1. I remember unloading the firewood when it was delivered when I was growing up. I loved the smell. We don’t have a real fireplace where we live now–we live too close to a military base and fires are prohibited because of jet traffic. And now with the drought, even those with real fireplaces aren’t allowed to use them. We get a lot of use out of our gas fireplace though. Finding Junie Kim sounds really good! I am going to have to look for that one. I hope you have a great week, Kathryn!


  2. I’ve been reading some (but not all) from my own shelves this year, too! I have only bought a few audiobooks, though, in all the years I’ve been listening to them. If I can’t get them through the library, I usually end up going without. I’ve been tempted to sign up for an audiobook subscription service many times, but so far I haven’t done it. The Royal Spyness series on audio is on my wish list!

  3. A nice stock of firewood for your upcoming winter sounds nice! Meanwhile, it is 60 degrees F here today, though winter’s not over yet 🙂

    I just started reading The Editor today – my neighborhood book group’s choice for next week. Finding Junie Kim sounds really good. I just read a wonderful middle-grade book dealing with race relations last week: Ruby Lee and Me by Shannon Hitchcock.

    Enjoy your books this week & thanks for hosting the linkup!

  4. Finding Junie Kim looks good and I really want to read something by Marie Force. I have several of her books but haven’t read any of them yet. That Rhys Bowen series is a fun one and one I need to go back and read the middle books in the series. I’ve read the beginning books and the most recent books but not the middle books.
