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 all the northern hemisphere readers are managing the heat. It seems very hot. I was just listening to a quilt podcast where I asked the podcasters what is the plus and minus of living in Nevada. It made me curious as to why people live in the desert. Well I learned no personal tax but also they seemed to prefer the heat to the snow conditions. I was also thinking this morning not many to no trees so I guess no forest fires? Well that would be a plus.

Anyway its winter here and we do have taxes! I prefer the cold to the heat, although it hasn’t been quite so cold this winter, but well enough for heating and a fire at night.

I had a rinse and repeat kind of week and enjoyed it very much, today is overcast and I have planned to drop books off for a book fair, drop clear out stuff to the Salvation Army shop and then to pick up groceries and then home to hibernate!

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

About to start both of these.  The Agatha Christie one helps me along in an informal reading challenge and this is the one I found at the library.

  1. with all the extreme weather in all seasons I’m not sure which I prefer, summer where the heat index two days ago was 110 and today where my region saw historic rainfall in one 24 hour period, or winter where we may have thunderstorms and tornados in December and a blizzard in February. I’m just thankful for each day I guess 🙂

  2. Hibernation sounds nice! I enjoyed Book Lovers and Beach Read. I have Emily Henry’s second (?) book, People We Meet on Vacation, that I’m hoping to read this summer. We are still in the middle of a long heat wave, and our window air conditioners cannot compete with it. At least, we haven’t been having any brownouts!

  3. Ahh, a cold winter night sounds lovely right now! Yes, the heat has been awful here. Not 100’s where we live (though 105 when we were in Oklahoma), but high 90’s and very humid. I’ve been hiding out in the a/c. Interestingly, Nevada is NOT all desert and does have forests, especially near the mountains. In fact, there are about a half dozen or so National Forests in the state. One time we were in Las Vegas for a work thing – it was high 90’s at least – but my husband and I drove about an hour west and up into Mount Charleston. There, we were hiking in shorts but there was still snow on the ground! Most U.S. states have varied terrain like that 🙂

    Ahhh, decluttering and taking things to charity sounds good – we have to do a LOT of that!

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

    1. That is so interesting about Nevada, I think the forest area may be a way from the quilters I am thinking of, but I can see I need to go look it up. I find hot and humid is the worst!


  4. Looks like the heat will break today, but we are expecting storms. I’m not ready for winter yet, but fall could come any day.

    Love your books this week. The Wedding Quilt and Book Lovers sounds great. Hope you have a nice week.

  5. Nevada is a much drier heat then the Southern US where we have somewhat lower temperatures but super high humidity. I always used to prefer heat to cold but the heat has just been too much for me this summer. Thank goodness for air condition! That Rhys Bowen series is on my Catch Up on Series list. I missed a few in the middle but I think I read that one and really enjoyed it.


  6. It’s pretty hot and humid here. Ours isn’t like the desert, it’s more like a tropical heat. I stay inside most of the time.

    That Agatha Christie book looks good. All of your books look good. Enjoy and have a great week!


  7. I like moderate temps – I might make a good snowbird. Although it seems like even our northern states are having pretty warm temps right now. Florida doesn’t have personal taxes and I do love the Panhandle area.
    The Wishing Quilt and Book Lovers are catching my interest this week.
    Have a good week and Happy Reading!

  8. I keep seeing Book Lovers, so I might just have to read it.

    It is definitely very hot here in Central California, and while I’m used to it, the only thing that makes it manageable is having good AC!

    My second son lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, now, after many years in LA. He does like the no tax thing and no forest fires.

    Enjoy your week!
