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.

Line break

Well a quieter reading week. I was busy sewing and getting quilts ready for my brother to take back with him to two of his grandchildren so reading went on the back burner!  We had a nice evening with him and his wife. It’s quite a few months since we all gathered so that was great.

Books on my Buy List

While I am wanting to cut back on my buying – I will still buy some, one for each three I read off my shelf! I have already read the first three, so naturally I am thinking of what I might buy to read.

A Place to Hang the MoonThis is a middle grade book – historical fiction.  I heard about it on the Currently Reading podcast. It was one of Meredith’s favourite books of 2021. Children in London are sent to the country, but unbeknown to the adults they are looking for a forever home. Meredith described it as a “swing up” book, it starts of hard but moves to sweet and is heart warming.

I can only get it in hardback at the moment so might wait to mid year to the paper back comes out. And I might cave and buy the hardback!

A court of thorns and roses

They also discussed this series by Sarah J. Maas.  The third book was the one Meredith loved but I’d have to go back to the beginning of the series so I think I will.

The advantage of this book is that it has been out for awhile and I should be able to buy it locally. So it may be my first buy or close to it.


With Love from London
Well I haven’t read a Sarah Jio book for awhile and seemingly this should publish in February.  It is set in London and includes a bookshop and a woman who needs to start over.

This will be an early buy too.

The Wedding Veil

The latest book from Kristy Woodson Harvey that is to publish at the end of March so that is well in my sights for the first quarter of the year.

It has to do with a wedding veil and four generations of women linked by it.

The Sweet Taste of MuscadinesThe Sweet Taste of Muscadines was on my radar last year, but at $52 for the hardback I decided I needed to wait for the paperback and I see that should be out in early March so this will have a place in this planning list as well.

It has some really good responses to it – a debut novel. Women’s fiction with some mystery and suspense.

Want to find out more? The cover will take you to Goodreads to read the blurb.
