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.

Greetings to you all. I so enjoy hearing what you are all reading and how you all are. My concern goes out to those of you who are struggling with your own health issues or those of loved ones. I think of you often.

For me, sun filled days at the moment. I have booked a Covid booster shot for this afternoon. Just after this post goes live.  I think Omicron has just found its way in through our border so better to be as ready as possible. Today marks when they start doing children 5 – 11 years. We are up to at least 90% of rest of population double dosed I think.

In other news the volcano near Tonga certainly sent shock waves around the world. Just waiting to see how the people of Tonga are doing.

And hello Australia. This time fully behind your actions in regards to a certain ejection from your country!!

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

A review book.

Goodbye Again

And audiobook.

Promises and Primroses

Up next:

I think it will be this library book I picked up off the shelf when I went to return a library book. It was my first place I had to show my vaccine pass to get in. As well as mask up of course.

This was published in 2007 and is a backlist book of an author I enjoy.

What I read last week:

A quiet week, I’ve had a sore throat and bronchial thing which meant I stayed close to home so that I don’t pass anything on. Ready to get out though now. So I spent the week reading and sewing and joining more quilt alongs than I had intended!

What I am reading now:

A memoir.

Happy New Year to all those I haven’t caught up with yet. Hope it has started well.

I am feeling the heat these couple of days. Can hardly drag myself around the house its so hot, I guess though it will cool in a few days. In the meantime all the doors and windows are open!

I didn’t see the New Year in, I think I may have slept through the midnight change over!

Welcome to the last Monday of 2021. I had a good Christmas, lovely time at my sister’s place on Christmas Day and then on Sunday 26th quite a few of us met up for a picnic at the river mouth. It was lovely and I loved catching up with some of the very young ones.

On Saturday I gave my niece the memory quilt I’d made of my mother – (her grandmother) and she loved it. Each block has significance and I have embroidered family names in the heart blocks. Had to make a new little one on this quilt for her great great grandson. She’d have loved him.

So today – Monday I am looking forward to a quiet day. I took out a jigsaw – 1000 pieces last night and have started it. Haven’t done one for ages.  I also put together my Calendar for 2022, its Boxing Day so about 60% off, it means I have to wait probably till mid January for it to arrive but that’s okay. I put on photos of the quilts I’ve made during the year.

Have watched a bit of TV. I love The Block Australia. Plus been looking at Fantasy Island, mainly because I follow the Happier in Hollywood podcast so I wanted to see what it was like.

Well just a few days to Christmas. I hope you all have a family Christmas where ever possible. I will join my sister and her family all going well. So far omicron hasn’t made it to where I live and hopefully it won’t before Christmas.

Enjoyed my reading this week, a mix of my own books and review books. I have a bit of a back log on audiobooks, and Audible gave us a credit which was rather nice. Now I need to choose!

Hope you are all well and out of the track of those tornadoes.  Where I am its rain! and rain! With the odd respite.

This week I was able to go and buy Go Tell The Bees I am Gone. It is #9 in the  Diana Gabaldon Outlander series. I’ve read them since they first began and even listened to her speak when she was here many years ago. I heard a really good interview with her on the radio yesterday and so now I am all geared to read her 800 odd page book. First though I want to get some of my review books read so that I can clear a good long space for reading her book.

What I read last week:

I really enjoyed the audio Love and Lavender, and what a treasure 84 Charing Cross Road was. Mary Kay Andrews Christmas story was delightful and Can’t Go Back I reviewed.

What I am reading now:

Up next:

A review book publishing on January 1st. Three novellas from the Shenandoah series.

Hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving – those who celebrate. I had my fairly usual week. I did watch the 2020 movie of Emma on Netflix. I really enjoyed it, seeing some  familiar actors. I thought Emma was portrayed well, not quite so sure about Mr. Knightley. However I haven’t read the book but now I think I will listen to it at some time in the future.

What I read last week:

I enjoyed Legacy on audiobook, January LaVoy is such a good narrator.  Roisin Meaney is a new to me author – Irish. I thought it was good and I’d certainly give another book by her a go.  Meg and Jo – a modern retelling of part of Little Women. Interesting take.

What I am reading now:

A review blog tour book.

Sleigh Bells Ring

Listening to…

One of the cozy mystery series I am enjoying and this is #5 and brings me up to date.

And we are in the middle of November already. I had a good reading week, and my biggest event was that a new bed that I had ordered arrived. It is now installed and used. It is far more comfortable than my last one. I had dallied about getting a new one but finally did it!

What I read last week:

One from my Kindle, the audio via Libby, and the last a recent buy.

What I am reading now:

Just beginning this book, a review book, chosen because it has the word quilt and a cover with one! I am making a memory quilt of my mother – the third actually, which will go to one of my nieces. It is quite different to this one I am sure.  It’s Amish Christian romance I am sure I’ll enjoy it, because yes – you know that word – quilt!

The Memory Quilt

And I will be listening to The Legacy which has been sitting in my Audible library for awhile now.

Legacy

Up next:

Another book from the Kindle black hole.
