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 you are all hanging in there. The days seem to fly by. Take care everyone and stay virus free.

And another Monday, first one in July. The year is going fast which is maybe a good thing. I am enjoying being lazy by the fire with a little reading and TV.  Hope you are all keeping well.

Last week I visited around to see what everyone was up to. It’s always dangerous of course because books get added to the TBR. However it is so good to see what everyone is reading and doing. It makes me learn a little, enjoy your happy news and have my heart ache at the sad news.

So last week I looked up the map to see where Montana is exactly is in the USA and while I was there I looked for New Mexico. I did stay for about 10 months in Washington state, but my geography is somewhat hazy. Anyway there you are Montana, sitting right up on the border next to Washington.

And of course so many different books, while we are all readers we have such a wide variety of tastes and that is just great, pointing to our uniqueness in reading. Keep on enjoying those books.

What I read last week:

I had a great reading week, not a lot of reading but the book I read I loved. I finished also listening to a very enjoyable read by Jenny Colgan.

What I am reading now:

From an Irish author I’ve come to really like

And I started listening to this one, it’s very long so I was putting it off, it will most likely take me all of July to get through it but it will be good.

A quiet week, lots of rain! And then we met our shortest day yesterday. Yay.

Well a little bit of a kerfuffle this week because we found out our quarantining at the border has been not that stringent and then two people from the UK were let out with the virus without testing on compassionate grounds, and there tended to be some large holes in their story. Hmm things then turned to custard!  We’ve had more coming in too as more NZers come home. So I am back to being cautious because I can’t trust what is going on at the border.

And still listening to and enjoying Five Hundred Miles From You. by Jenny Colgan. Enjoying catching up with little cameos of past characters in the series.

Hope you are doing well. Like most of you I have been taking note of the terrible happenings of the last weeks, seeing both the brutality and the courageous standing up to it in the U.S. The worst and best of humanity.

In my country today we expect to hear that we are moving down a level to where we can have large crowds at sports and other events and churches totally open etc. We have had no new cases of Covid19 for about 15 days so we are expecting the government to lessen the restrictions further. Of course our borders are still mostly closed and those who do come in have to do 14 days enforced quarantine. I hope we stay free but who knows.

What I read last week:

I finished one book this week, I thoroughly enjoyed the read.

I seem to be mostly on a romance reading kick at the moment. Not intentional but that’s how it’s rolling. A mix of old and new books.

Thinking of you all in the USA with the turbulence happening there.  Take care all.

Hope you are all doing well and for those celebrating Memorial Day, hope you have found some good way of remembering.

Yesterday I returned my books to the library as they are taking them again and are open except on Sunday. I then ventured into local bookshop but new bookshelves had no new ones much since the virus outbreak so I wandered out. My own bookshelves have plenty!

Hope you are all doing well.

I enjoyed all these books. Feels Like Falling was my audiobook.

Just a little reading this week, still such good weather for being outside and of course quilting!

This week we went down a level and all shops are open and most things are back, although only groups of 10 allowed so no church and no bars yet. Schools went back today. We can travel anywhere within New Zealand. We are only getting 0 – 1 cases a day so feels pretty safe. However I disliked coming out of lockdown and don’t want to move too quickly. And I am totally sick of radio talk back hosts stirring up negativity and doom and gloom. Off my Christmas list they go!

Hope you are all doing well and staying clear of the virus.

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

One advantage for me of lockdown is that I have got out walking more. And because of that I’ve got back into my audiobook listening again. Alleluia!  Our weather has been very mild, unusually warm temps for us for Autumn over the last number of weeks, which means we’ve all been able to get outside. Some of us too much if you can judge my beach photos!

What I read last week:

I enjoyed my first taste of an Anne Tyler book. I finished listening to Becoming. Great on audio. I respected Michelle Obama before I listened. I am in awe of her now and highly respect her now and am inspired by her.
