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.

A nice week of summer – I even had my first swim of the season in the sea. Lovely once I was in! Yesterday I went 20 minutes up the road to a children’s market where they were selling what they had for sale, often stuff they had made themselves. That was fun and I tried out the new part of the express way. It was great, I can now go straight to Otaki in a blink.   My nine year old great niece was selling her “books” that she had written so I purchased them and a few other things.

What I read last week:

An English author and an Australian author! Very much enjoyed both.

What I am reading now:

I am a good way into this and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I can’t believe the vitriol I see on some of the social media sites. All the armchair critics I suspect who have done little with their lives or else they really are talking about themselves.

Up next:

A slightly overdue review book so its up next.

Bookclubbed to death

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:

Slow and steady reads.

Up next:

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