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!
Welcome in all. And so our final winner for celebrating one year of It's Monday on the Book Date blog was Sarah from Sarah's Bookshelves, congrats to Sarah who chose the $15 Amazon voucher.
Talking of winning, I was thrilled to win a copy on Twitter of Jodi Picoult's latest - Small Great Things from one of our national booksellers. It's funny really, I swim in review books and TBR actual books on my shelf and Kindle but a book win always delights!
The vegie garden is beginning to come alive as the potatoes and beans are up above the ground and so is some corn. From now on in will have to water, the soil is sandy where I live about 7 km from the beach but still ..... sandy! I have some tomato plants to plant out in a week or so and a few lettuces in.
What I read last week:
I finished the audiobook, I liked it and it was extremely well narrated, which really enhanced it.
I read as well for review, very entertaining.
Another in the Lowcountry series and a 5 star read, perfect Christmas story. Could easily be read as a stand alone.
From my TBR shelf I read.
Switchback was a reissue of a book from the '90's, romantic suspense - was a good read. Promises to Keep was somewhat sad and now I need something bright to read!
What I am reading at present:
So I wanted something light and bright after my last sad read so where do I go to? Searches bookshelves! I pick out this one by Kristan Higgins that I just bought. I read the reviews of people I follow on Goodreads. Mary (I trust her taste in books) says "I got 5 stars worth of laughs out of this book" Well that decides me, so this is what I started reading today. Sometimes I read to experience and learn, today I want to laugh and be totally entertained. Thank you Kristan Higgins. Unfortunately I have nearly read all of her backlist now, but then... there is always rereading!
I was planning to read this one right now but putting it away by one book while I read something bright!
After that I plan to read...
