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.
Well I had a mixed week. Some great days visiting and being visited. Fitted in some reading of course and plenty of quilting.
However I have been saddened by all the rain north of where I live and the terrible rain and flooding, loss of homes and life in Auckland and surrounding areas. It is heartbreaking and I know this is happening in so many places. I think of the floods NSW in Australia has had. And many other places. Our weather sure has changed I believe.
What I read last week:
Sugar and Salt was good but did include a rape which would be a trigger for some readers. I did skip a little! Blackberry Summer was a reread and I revised my 2 stars up to 4 stars. Don’t know where my head was the first time I read it about ten years ago.
I just had a little more to listen to with Lady of Quality and Christmas atCopper Mountain was a novella on audio. So it looks a lot read but no – not really!
What I am reading now:
And about to. start listening to…
I have a couple of slow reads going on as well. The Winners by F Backman and My Reading List by P Conroy.
