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.

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.

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!!

Month in Review

January Reading Wrap

Total books read this month: 11

New to me authors:

Farid Almed

Top Book for January

Every read was really good. All books that are “me”.  Hard to choose a top book but for its exploration of heart transplant issues and a good story with great characters this one just tops the others.

Book cover

2021 Reading Intentions  January Update.

Read What I Truly Enjoy. Enjoyed every book and only read what I wanted to read.

Use the Library and only buy when I need to. Library : 5

That is a satisfactory amount. I did buy some for later reading because the library doesn’t have them. The Residence was one on Kindle that I bought – forgot to check if the library had it.  Oops that would be 5 books bought!!
Read Own print and Kindle shelves:  3 paperbacks off my own shelf which is good. Would have liked to read at least one Kindle one!

Well what a week. I enjoyed watching the pomp and pageantry of the Inauguration of the 46th President of the USA. It was on early morning in my time zone, and while I usually wake early, that day I was so annoyed to wake later than usual and just miss the swearing in of Kamala Harris but got there for Joe Biden. Because I’ve read books by both of them I felt I knew a little about them.

After all that and jumping out of bed out of sleep I was rather dopey for the rest of the day and didn’t get much done!  I had lots of favourite parts but especially loved that gifted young woman poet.

I did get quite a bit of quilting done this week even if my reading was slight!

What I read last week:

I finished listening to an audiobook and read one review book. Slow reading week!

What I am reading now:

Book cover

And I’ve just started listening to Barack Obama’s book A Promised Land.  It will be a long haul but enjoyed the first few  hours so far.

Hope you are all doing well. We had a very sunny week, but this week looks like the weather is going to be windy and wet mostly. Most people go back to work here as the country gets back to normal after the summer break. Of course as I am retired it doesn’t really mean too much to me, although its nice to have everything back.

What I read last week:

Enjoyed them all. Two were almost finished as I began the week so that gave me four for this week!

What I am reading now:

One for review.

Welcome in all. Hope your reading week went well. I guess many of you were absorbed by what took place on Capitol Hill last week. Certainly very devastating.

I’ve been reading and doing small chores, nothing much. I finished watching Bridgerton which I really enjoyed on Netflix. I still have so many shows to watch and I will …. sometime!

Well welcome into the first IMWAYR for January and 2021.  Hope it will be a better year this time. We shall see. I didn’t see the New Year in, I turned on a podcast and fell asleep, thought I had set the timer for an hour but must not, because my list was all gone when I checked. I had listened to it! Just as well they are easy to recover.

What I read last week:

Trevor Noah’s memoir on audible was just amazing. I really enjoyed my first book of the year Knot in my Backyard, and King’s Ransom was my last book of the year.

What I am reading now:

book cover

And I am listening to Read and Gone by Allison Brook and Naughty in Nice by Rhys Bowen

Hope you have a good week and enjoy Christmas in the small groupings it will be for you this year. Enjoy the coziness of it.

I’ll take a week’s break from blogging and will be back here next Monday with what I’ve been reading – or maybe what I haven’t been reading!

What I read last week:

What I am reading now:

Still listening to Born a Crime.

Up next:

Not really sure.  It will be a mood read, whatever it is and also I want to catch up on some viewing and leave room for some Christmas movies, plus The Bridgertons will drop on
Netflix later in the week and I want to see some of that.
