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 to the last Monday in March. Autumn sure is making itself felt here, and I hope Spring is for many of you. I had a reasonably good week, I have a new lawn mower man – only had to make one phone call as I found a card in the pantry and went for that one first.  Always nice when its easy. Now I am thinking about what vegetables to plant for the winter. They are more expensive these days with various reasons so always good to be able to pass that aisle in the shop.

What I read last week:

Looks a lot but The Color of Light was an ongoing audio I finished this week and In the Unlikely Event was a slow and steady. And of course the Dog Man book is a graphic novel for children.  My great nephew I am helping to read is in to them so I tried one before I gave it to him. (I am the enabler!) The book was fun.

What I am reading now:

And starting to listen to…

  1. So glad the lawn situation was easily solved. I’m thinking about growing herbs this spring/summer. I’ve done bigger scale gardening but just don’t think I have the best setup for it. I have Lions of Fifth Avenue on my list to read this year. I’m really looking forward to it! I read another book by Fiona Davis last year and absolutely loved it.

  2. Looks like a good reading week for you! I just love how you’ve helped your great-nephew with his reading and encouraged a love of books. I did the same with my niece and nephew (though, sadly, they are both in phases of not wanting to read much at the moment, at 17 and 21!)

    Hope you enjoy your books this week, too – I’ve heard good things about The Lions of Fifth Avenue.

  3. A winter garden sounds wonderful – what will you plant? You have such interesting books going on, while I am still making my way through In Farleigh Field – but it is picking up for me, so it should go faster. I don’t read except in the afternoon with a little glass of wine, so it’s a slow-go for me! Have a great week.

    1. Your reading sounds perfect. Not much in the winter garden, mainly silver beet and I might put broccoli and a bit of spinach. Not much really grows, but it I can have greens to pick its a plus.

  4. I’ve been buying board books like crazy for my new granddaughter! Can’t wait till she’s old enough for real picture books and then chapter books, etc!
    I listened to all of the Inspector Gamache books on audio, but I’m sure they’re great in print as well.

  5. I have Itami’s Fault Lines on my TBR. And the Louise Penny looks good too. I was sorry to see her Three Pines adaptation get canceled. So many shows no don’t get renewed…
