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.

Welcome in and hope all is going reasonably well for you all. I had a good week. I ventured into Wellington city via a new road that opened a little while back. Quite an experience as it cuts through some high hills. It takes off a whole lot of the small towns and so you can go along at full speed.

After connecting with a friend we then travelled around the harbour to Eastbourne for a walk and the yummy oysters, scallops and chips. Great way to spend a day.

Now wet weather has set in and while not too cold I have lit the fire a few times. Makes things cosy!

I am not too sure, I am only beginning A Mother’s Heart and I am not sure what I will feel like reading once I finish that one.

  1. I’m especially intrigued by The Librarian; I hadn’t heard of it or the author before. (I don’t like photographs on book covers, but I guess publishers don’t care whether I like them or not!) I’ve been wanting to read Sofie Ryan, too. (I think I said that last week!)


  2. Sounds like a fun trip and nice to have a quicker way to get into town. What did you think of The Fairy Godmother? It’s so outside my usual genre but I enjoyed it once I got into it. I need to read the Heather Webber. I adored Blackbird Cafe. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Yes I loved Blackbird Café too. The Fairy Godmother was unusual and a couple of times almost didn’t complete. But I kind of got pulled it and it pulled me back into fairy tale land!


  3. That sounds like a wonderful day trip, Kathryn! So nice that you could get out with a friend.

    Cozy sounds nice, too – it’s suddenly too warm here, and I’m not a fan of heat & humidity. Glad we will still get some moderate/nice weather before the summer heat fully sets in!

    Enjoy your books this week and thanks for hosting the linkup – I look forward to it every week!

  4. Rain seems to be the norm for a bunch of us lately. We have actually had little to no rain, but yesterday and today we are expecting to make up for that.

    The Librarian and A Whisker of Trouble Caught my eye this week. Happy reading.


  5. Heather Webber book looks good. Have you read her cozy mystery series? I also post on my blog a summer book challenge I am going to try to do it.
