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.

And August sure is well on its way! We have been promised a cold winter week. We shall see. Snow down in the South Island, but maybe we won’t see much snow up on the Ranges, but you never know.

I don’t seem to have been doing much reading, I just don’t know what I do all day!! I do know on a Sunday I sit there and think, even though I have been retired a few years now, I don’t have to worry about school and teaching for Monday. Soooo good!

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

I thought I would have this read by now but my reading has been a bit slower this week. Plus this book is a little complicated with its mystery. It’s stretching my brain! I should be finished by the end of today though.

A Certain Darkness

Up next:

Books from the library are piling in on me. I can see I am not going to most likely get my quota of books off my actual shelf read this month. But… thank you library. I am going to try out this one first as lots of reserves waiting for it.

  1. Cold winter weather sounds great right now! We’re still stuck in the 90’s here and very humid, though the forecast is showing a nicer weekend coming up!

    How did you like Flying Solo? I enjoyed her first novel.

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

  2. It’s strange to think of a cold week in August! 😉 We are coming to the end of a lonnnnggggg heat wave here on the East Coast of the US. Flying Solo just came through for me from the library on audio. It has been very popular, though not as popular as the Jennifer Weiner book, which people have to wait forever for!

  3. I am with you on Sundays, the past worst day of the week when thinking about the coming work week, office drama and how I wish I wasn’t there ensued. I’m almost 7 years retired and even though I had to take early retirement to care for my disabled husband I’m loving every day and often wish I knew where the time goes. This weekend (It’s high summer here) I canned pickles and tomatoes. xo

  4. My reading has been a little slower in the past week too, Kathryn. And I still haven’t caught up with writing my reviews! Still we can only do what we can do. Keep warm. ❤📚


  5. I have A Certain Darkness coming up on my reading list and I’m so looking forward to it! I hope you get a little more reading done this week. It always drives me crazy when I’ve been too busy to read but can’t really remember what I was doing! Have a great week!

  6. I’m kind of looking forward to the cooler weather here, oddly enough, since usually in winter I can’t wait for the warm up. 🙂 I’ll be really curious to see what you think of Huber’s book as I’m keen to try those.


  7. Snow! It’s so hard to think about as my air conditioner is roaring away at me. I hope your area avoids it if, like me, you prefer not to deal with it.

    My sister visited last week and I had to catch up on chores yesterday. But today has been my day to catch up on journaling so I’ve kind of been sitting and thinking on a Sunday too. It’s been a nice break.

    Enjoy your week!
