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!

Welcome in to the middle of May! We are still having late summer temps, global warming is here I do believe. However thunderstorms forecast for this pm, so I am scheduling this post just in case the power goes. But they might not even arrive!

I did some reading this week but I was out three evenings and sewing seems to be equally vying for my time as well. However hopefully a bit more this week.

My favourite Australian programme A Place to Call Home - season three, finished this week. What a load of cliffhangers. Hate that! However love the show and gives me an Australian kind of Downton Abbey.  The best part is it showed on free to air TV here, which it didn't when shown on Australian TV.                                                   

What I read last week:

Delightful audiobook. Well narrated and #4 in series.

  1. I was busy this week to and was surprised that I read as much as I did. I just requested the newest "In Death" book. Cliffhangers are the worst. I love to hate them. Have a great week.

  2. When We Were Sisters looks good...I'll be watching for your review. I got Dear Things this week...eager to read it. Enjoy your week, and thanks for hosting.

    A Place to Call Home sounds like my kind of show. It's hard to wait for a show to return after its hiatus.

  3. I'm not a huge fan of cliffhangers either, especially when it takes months to get a payoff. A lot of rain here too this week, the weather's been all over. We had a bit of hail this morning, then it got sunny. Goofball weather. :)

    I hope you have some good reading this week!

  4. I've enjoyed many Mary Balogh stories on audio. I like the cover of Dear Things but it sounds like it might be a bit heart wrenching.
    I'm glad you are enjoying your sewing too. Happy Reading!

  6. I've not watched A Place to Call Home Kathryn but it has many fans. I love Martha Dussel..... whatever in another show called Janet King - in which she plays the lead role.

    It's still warm here too Kathryn - 30C today... argh!

  7. You always read books that are so appealing to me. I don't mind cliffhangers unless I'm really captivated to a point of reading straight through a book. Then, I'm ready to scream if I'm left hanging.

  8. I hope you never got those thunderstorms... or at least that you didn't lose power! Know what you mean about the cliff hangers, but I guess they'll get you to tune in again next season. When We Were Sisters looks good.

  9. Dear Thing looks good, and I really need to read the first In Death book by Robb, I've been assured I'd love the main male love interest. ;)

    I'm reading Devil in the White City for book club, and listening to Silver Screen Fiend on audio.

  12. It is May here, but the temperatures think it is late October....brrrr.

    Bring on spring and summer please.

    Nice week for you. Love the looks of When We Were Sisters and Dear Thing.

    Have a wonderful reading week.

  13. It has been a while since I read a Mary Balogh book. I need to fix that! Re the weather - we're having a very cold spring in my area of the US. I'm hoping for warm temps and lots of sun!

  14. Saw several Mary Balogh books at a weekend rummage sale :)
    Have a great reading and quilting week, Kathryn -
    Hoping you might be available for an online movie viewing of CHOCOLAT this week Thursday - more in post at FHC... thanks for hosting.

  15. I so want to read When We Were Sisters. And I need to read another JD Robb book. I am so far behind in that series. Happy reading!

  16. I am currently reading Last Summer at Chelsea Beach by Pam Jenoff, Suede to Rest by Diane Vallere and just finish Thyme of Death by Susan Wittig Albert late last night. Happy reading to all!

    1. Oh I have my eye on Last Summer at Chelsea Beach too Amy, so hope it is good.

  17. Just the opposite here - usually hot summer weather by now but we've had nonstop rain and very cool temps instead. I read somewhere that even though the past 2 years were among the top 5 of all-time for global temperature, our little corner of the world (NE & Mid-Atlantic US) has had unusually cool weather. It's all crazy, for sure!

    Looks like you read some good books last week - enjoy your books for this week!

    1. It might Patty, because it is excellent Australian TV - said from a New Zealanders point of view. Keep an eye out for it.

  19. Your chosen books have the most engaging covers! I would probably choose them for the covers alone, but knowing that you are enjoying them helps me choose.

  20. I am curious about When We Were Sisters. Have a great week Kathryn.

  21. All your books look great. I love Emilie Richards and Mary Balogh is a favorite I've been neglecting. Plus all your covers are gorgeous! I want to read them all! A Place Called Home sounds interesting. I'll have to see if it's played here at all. Have a great week!

  22. Great Line up can't wait to see what you say about Emilie Richards book, I'm just starting the third book in Mark Lawrence's The Red Queen's War series, The Wheel of Osheim, an Urban Fantasy

    1. Debbie of course I loved the ER book, I was just rereading your review in the RT last night. Such a fabulous review and she really loved it too, she commented that you had really summed it up so well.

  23. We are having the weirdest weather here in Michigan! One day it is snowing, the next it is in the 70s. It wreaking havoc upon my allergies as well! Your show sounds nice! I love Downton Abbey!

  24. We've had weird weather here, too. Fall-like temperatures and weather. I'm wondering if Mother Nature will ever make up her mind.

    When We Were Sisters looks really good. I am adding it to my TBR. Thanks for the tip!

  26. Oh how I wish I could sew, I actually bought a second-hand sewing machine once, but the results were....less than inspiring.... ;)

  27. I do find that audiobooks help us boost the number of books we can read each month! Great list.
