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.

Today is a holiday here as yesterday was ANZAC Day when Australia and New Zealand remember those who have served in various wars. Because it fell on a Sunday, workers have Monday off. It doesn’t really make any difference to me as being retired every day is a holiday, for which I am very grateful.

One of my sisters travelled to Brisbane and then the Gold Coast yesterday from here in New Zealand as we now have a travel bubble operating where there is no 14 days of quarantine. She was very nervous, but so looking forward to seeing her daughter and two grand children who are fair dinkum Aussies! One she hasn’t met yet as he was born only about three months ago.

What I read last week:

Loved Marie Force’s new book and new series. A Family of Strangers was a reread, this time via audio and loved that too.  Confessions of a Quilting Circle review will be published tomorrow.

What I am reading now:

I am also reading A Wizard of Earthsea – first book and starting to listen to Under the Southern Sky by Kristy Woodson Harvey.

Hope you are all doing well. Feeling a little colder here. I went to the library recently to find they had updated their returns and issues machines. All so modern. Put all the books together under the scanner and all issued together. I wonder if they will ever work out how to float the books to the exact spot on the shelf all by themselves!

It’s been a bit of a slow reading week, but a little each day gets me there. Each day seems to speed by quickly. I did manage to start walking again so hoping I’ll keep that up!

My great niece and nephew visited me Sunday. Five and Seven. They are so funny. Scarlett brought me a bookmark she had made for me, like the one she made her Nana. It is very flash!

What I am reading now:

Will most likely finish this today. Great read.

I am also listening to a couple of books and have finally got around to getting into them. I had to begin When in Doubt, Add Butter all over again because it was so long since I’d listened to it. I am also listening to A High End Finish.

Hope you all had a great Easter break. We turned our clocks back this weekend, and even though we get an extra hour it always seems like we miss out. However I do like the extra evening hours in summer so not complaining. We have about 6 months of each.

Trying like some of you to sort out WordPress, obviously going to have to study up a bit as things are different!! Just trying to put a gallery in and size the pictures, has been a major try out.

What I am reading now:

I am reading a couple. Surviving Savannah is good but I need a little bit of lighter reading in-between .

So I am also reading

Hope you are all doing well. I had a good week of sunshine and some Autumn tidy up and cleaning. Today I have rain, but as we haven’t seen any for weeks I am hoping it will revive the garden a little.

What I read last week:

A great week for reading. Loved them all. So pleased A Bad Day for Sunshine sat on my shelf for so long so now I don’t have to wait too long for #2 in July.

What I am reading now:

My next book for review.

Welcome to another week of reading. For me it is beginning to feel like Autumn and I know so many of you are ready to go right into Spring!

What I read last week:

I throughly enjoyed Just Like That and Picnic in Someday Valley. Light Over London was good but a little slow moving.

So here is what I am reading or planning to read. In terms of viewing I watched season 4 of Doctor, Doctor which is an Australian TV series and a load of fun, plus I love the scenery. Some of the characters are rogues but loveable ones! In my research to see if there is going to be a season 5 I found out that overseas this is called The Heart Guy!

Apart from that not much. Just the usual you know, a brothers and sisters fish and chip night, bit of Covid drama and an earthquake that woke the country at 2:30am and a possible tsunami that didn’t happen. The usual political carry on, especially by the haters of our PM. I think we are all familiar with that.

Yes, I will most likely watch the Meghan and Harry – Oprah interview. I don’t have a lot of sympathy for them but prepared to listen.

Well here we are in March, hope you are all okay. It is great to be able to visit around readers’ blogs to see what you are doing and how you are.

I am fine, finding our summer weather just a tad hot for me! Covid wise it’s fine although when we find a case everyone in the country has levels upped. So on Saturday night an alert on my phone told me we were going to L2 where I am which means no groups bigger than a 100. So that cut church out for Sunday as we just don’t have it when we go to L2. In Auckland they are in L3 because that is where the breakout is. They have no school, work at home etc. I guess most of you are familiar with that. It is at this stage only for 7 days. Next Sunday might find me at church again!!

Hope you week is going well. We are starting another one, may it bring us all good reads! One of my sisters visited a book shop recently and decided she felt like reading a book. Not having read for a long time she perused the shelves and alighted on The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley. Because as she told me we are seven girls in our family.

Later that week her five year old grand daughter saw her reading and said to her “Nanny you should really be using a bookmark”.  She then made her a very glamorous one of a blue craft feather and piece of card and lovely sticker which Anne is using. I was very delighted with Miss Five Year Old!
