It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

badge

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and 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 that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!

Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join them!

And it's Monday! Where did the week go. Well I read a few books, made a couple of quilt blocks, went for a few walks, went to a 3 year old party and had a friend spend the day. And there you have it! Oh and of course taking part in the April AtoZ blogging challenge at Discovering Daisies. Time has been a bit of an issue so haven't done the visiting of other blogs so much.

I listened to a few podcasts and enjoyed the recent one What Should I Read Next? Mary Beth Whelan and Ariel Lawhon were interviewed from  She Reads.  They share their love for reading, what they are reading and the pressure that comes with all those books arriving on the doorstep. I thought to myself oh yes, I'd like to read that book that Marybeth mentioned, then awoke enough ( I listen at night) to realise the publisher was kindly sending me a copy to read. All of Us and Everything by Bridget Asher.                                                       

What I read last week:

All three books were great reads.

  1. As you know I didn't mind The Obsession and mostly enjoyed it. I guessed the twist - only because there weren't a lot of options provided. But liked that the ending didn't get eked out too much.

  2. Another week comer and gone- sounds like yours was nice. I got a bot of reading done as well, not as much as would have liked but enough to stay on top of things. :)

    That challenge sounds fun, and The Vintage Springtime Club looks like a nice spring read!

    1. Yes it is women's fiction Viki. I haven't read her before so new to me, but I have discovered she has written some quilting fiction ones so will be chasing those up at some point.
