It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

badge
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 in to another It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Hope you all had a good week. We just hit a cold wet patch in our summer, just when things were going along so well. I guess we’ll be back on track soon enough.  I have just been doing the usual, some reading, some quilting, some viewing. I loved the third season of All Creatures Great and Small but they only have 7 episodes to a season, I wish it was double that!

What I read last week:

Picking Up the Pieces  is a review book.
A Wish For Winter  was from my shelf. I enjoyed it – loved the setting and the characters, the book talk, though I did find it a bit slow moving.
Tell Me A Story I thoroughly enjoyed, it was one of my slow reads, a chapter a night. I haven’t really read anything by either Pat Conroy or Cassandra King Conroy but I’d like to now.

What I am reading now:

book cover

Slow and steady reads.

Up next:

Probably something short like a novella as I wait for Prince Harry’s book to publish.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas to those who celebrate and a peaceful lead up to it. Next Monday you will hopefully be relaxed and resting after the excitement. I’ll spend Christmas dinner at one my sister’s place. Hopefully the weather will be fine, but at this point who knows as we have had so much rainy and humid weather. Fingers crossed!

What I read last week or finished last week:

Enjoyed them all. These Precious Days has essays by Ann Patchett. Very engaging. Fatal Grace pulled me in and I am now a fan! So much want to see what happens for Gamache next. So pleased I am reading from Book 1 and onwards.

What I am reading now:

book cover

Listening.

book cover

Slow Reading.

These are my slow reading. Both are quite considerable so they will take me into January and be my last and first reads of the year. I only read them for about 15 – 20 minutes. The Winners with coffee in the morning and Tell Me a Story for before I turn the light out. I like Non-fiction I’ve discovered at night. Unfortunately I have it in hardback and a bid heavy to hold in bed!
