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.

Wishing everyone in the USA a Happy Thanksgiving. I know many of you won’t be able to have a big Thanksgiving celebration, however I think the important thing at this point is for you and all your family to stay Covid free. And here’s to 2021 in a years time being far better.

I seem to have had a good reading week. The weather hasn’t been great – I want more sun!

On Saturday I went up to my sister’s place in Wanganui for a family night. I travelled up with my sister and brother-in-law and another sister so the few hours flew. A brother and sister-in-law also came up so a lovely group for the night and my sister is a great cook! They are just outside the city and it feels like you are in the country but you aren’t. It made a lovely break.

What I read last week:

The Other Bennett Sister was for me and I really liked how this was handled. The Midnight Library was different and a good read as well. Jill Shalvis book is a Jill Shalvis book!

What I am reading now:

Just started this one

book cover

And mid way through this one

And still listening to my Tradd Street book.

My reading was baaaad this week. Lots of distractions. Firstly lots of people which was wonderful but not so good for reading.

Plus glued to watching the USA election from here in New Zealand. I must say I have become much more familiar with the placement on the map of all the various States!

What I read last week:

This is all I finished! I really enjoyed it, with laugh out moments and such a New Zealand setting. Thanks Shellyrae for encouraging me to read this one.

book cover

What I am reading now:

From my Kindle list, decided to try and read a few. Not getting very far on it as so many distractions but will get back into it.

book cover

My audiobook hasn’t really progressed, I need to get back to it.

Up next:

Thought I might try this next from the library and see if its for me.

Welcome November. Casting off fast! Last week turned into a good reading week as I got through another audiobook, due more to quilting than walking but I’ll take it! As well busy pottering in the garden, love going out every morning to see if seeds are up or if plants are still alive!!

We had a sisters morning tea (six of us, one had to travel a couple of hours so nice catch up) on Friday at one of my sister’s homes.   Oh her garden was just gorgeous. Can you hear the envy in my voice!! Came home and resolved to do more in mine!

Fingers crossed for this week!!!!

What I am reading now:

Just starting both these

Hope you are all keeping a head above water. This week I got some reading done and a bit of viewing – some on the TV – I am enjoying a British show The Trouble with Maggie Cole. I also watched half of the Colin Firth Pride & Prejudice (to be continued) via DVD, the first of the new David Letterman on Netflix and the movie The Two Popes. All good viewing.

I can see the I will use Netflix a lot more now that yesterday I sorted myself with a Google Chromecast. Two of my sisters and brother and spouses gathered for a fish ‘n chips tea (evening meal, not sure what you call tea!!) Saturday at my brother’s place and so I saw their Chromecast set up and that’s all the incentive I needed. I had been thinking about it for awhile.

What I read last week:

I also finished listening to

What I am reading now:

A long time book on my TBR. I saw her new book on NetGalley but wasn’t going to request it when I don’t know if I like her as an author, so off the shelf it comes – I picked it up at a Book Fair about four years ago.

Well we are now almost mid October! This week I voted. No! Not in the USA election but in my own NZ elections which are on at the moment. Voting day is Saturday, but pre voting can happen and I like that. Not long queues. There has been a higher turnout of pre voting this time around.  Though really who’d want to be government at the moment in these times.

So I’ve been watching some of our political debates and some of the USA. I’ve never been so “political!”

What I read last week:

Hideaway was an okay read but January LaVoy takes the book to a whole new level. Her narration is superb. A Place for Us was well written but I am not one for timelines that swing back and forward. I get that it put more drama in but it distanced me from the characters.

What I am reading now:

I am two thirds through this so most likely will finish today.

I am also listening to…

Up next:

By Australian author. This one has the most reserves at the library out of the three that I have so I am beginning with this one first.  It is a family drama with… lies!!

Hope you are all doing okay. We went into Daylight saving this weekend. I haven’t been too upset by it. I actually think the other end, getting the extra hour back, is more difficult!

The weather is very Spring like = very windy. Big gusts! My carrot seed is germinated and small bed for beans is sorted. Now to plant them!

What I read last week:

Beach Read was an interesting read and I finished listening to Unmarriageable on audio. Pride and Prejudice story set in Pakistan.

Well nothing really to report except for more of the same. Got a bit discombobulated on Saturday because went to pick up library books and between going from the car into the library and when I went to the self service check out I had my Visa card in my pocket – not my library card like I thought. I must have lifted both from my wallet and the library card fell out. Is all I can think of. Really I searched everywhere. I guess it could have been worse, I would have hated to have had the Visa card with its pay wave slip out of my pocket! The librarian did issue my books for me, I knew the number of my card by heart because I go online so much! She said not many people know their library number! I guess if it doesn’t turn up will have to pay for a replacement.

What I read last week:

Yes just the one book in the past week, I did enjoy it.

What I am reading now:

So nice to have a 2020 new copy from the library to read.

Up next:

And another lovely new hardback from the library is next on the reading agenda!

Welcome in to another Monday! They keep rolling around! I focus on reading, quilting, gardening, less walking and house cleaning than I should, podcasts, the odd TV bits and pieces. I try to keep clear of most news! Although the awful fires in a few places have not escaped my attention. So devastating. Stay safe everyone.

From my TBR actual bookshelf. I have all these books sitting there. It’s so hard to choose, but for today’s choice I took the first book in the line on the shelf!

I had a great reading week. I so enjoy Karen Rose’s romantic suspense. It was hard to pick up another book after it though, but finally I have got hooked into new books.
