Sunday Post. What Are You Reading? Fitreaders.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? badge for Sunday Post
Sheila at Book Journey runs It's Monday! What Are You Reading? While this  meme is not active at present I will be linking up as well to the Sunday Post at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I had a good week, lots of sewing, who knew how difficult it is to get everything lined up when quilting, but learning is part of the journey, and I'll have some kind of quilt - if a little crooked at the end of it!

I spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Wellington city today, at our museum, viewing an extraordinary display about Gallipoli. Then a walk along the wharf, so all in all a good day for my fitbit stats!

Had a good week and met my goal of 46 200 steps. I was just a little above that, although no walking on Saturday as I had met my goal and the day seemed to fly by without walking!

What I read last week:

I continued on my way back reading Cathy Lamb, enjoyed it but not my favourite.
Blueprints I enjoyed and I am now in 2004 published for the J. D. Robb books. Gradually getting there! Just eleven years behind at two a year!
Safe Harbor was a very good audio, 2nd in Hubbard's Point/Black Hall series. Tanya Eby narrated it very well. 

What I am reading at present:

Know Your Heart by Tracey Alvarez - a contemporary romance.
Audio:  The Summer Wind by Mary Alice Monroe

Up next:

Zac and Mia by A. J. Betts - I won this maybe last year or 2013, so just reading it now!

Posts from the last week.


  1. Blueprints looks really good. My mother loves to quilt and has made some amazing quilts. Folks will pay top dollar for them too. I love strolling through museums and it sounds like you had a good time. Enjoy your week :)

  2. I love Nora Roberts, but I've never read anything by her J.D. Robb pseudonym. What are those books like?

  3. It's finally getting cold here so guess it's more so there.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this quilt... Are we going to get regular updates?

  4. Julia's Chocolates probably needs to make its way to my TBR pile, Kathryn :) I'm going to check out your review.
    I hope you'll enjoy the books you're reading and are planning on reading for next week. Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  5. Julia's chocolates sounds good I will have to check it out. I hope you have a great week.

  6. I love Cathy Lamb and have read all of her books! I read a lot of Barbara Delinsky in the past and will read Blueprints soon.... Have a great week reading!

  7. Congrats on continually keeping your walking stats up. I'm sure your quilt will be lovely. I'm not sure which of the three books in The Summer girls series I enjoyed most. They were all good. Enjoy your week.

  8. I love quilts but I don't think I would be too good at it! looks hard so good for you! you seem to be a big fan of Nalini Singh. I think I'll try her books again :)

  9. That sound like a beautiful day, and glad you had a good week. I think it's fun you're working your way through an author's work by year!

    The Guest Cottage, that looks like a good summer read. Nantucket and summer go well together I imagine. :)

  10. Barbara Delinsky is one of my favorite storytellers. It's been a while since I've read one of her books...maybe I'll pick one up this summer.

  11. I loved The Lake Season and The Guest Cottage...I also enjoy Cathy Lamb, and somehow I missed Julia's Chocolates.

    I also need to read more of the J.D. Robb series.

    Enjoy your week...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  12. I've only read one JD Robb and it was ages ago. I really need to go back and catch up. Blueprints looks good too. Congratulations on meeting your step goal and on learning to quilt! That's high on my list of things I want to do though it may have to wait a few years. Have a great week!

  13. I love the J.D. Robb series and am currently listening my way through the beginning books. I'm not sure where I actually left off at this point but it has been really fun to go back to the beginning where the characters are just forming their relationships with each other. It has turned into a comfort series for me :) Hope you have a great week and happy reading!

  14. The good thing about going through an author's back catalogue is that there's always a next book! You don't have to wait for the latest release...until you get caught up that is. Have a great week!

  15. Glad you had a great week. Blueprints is on my radar as I have not read Barbara in a long time. I would love to learn to quilt, but have so many other projects that I need to finish.

  16. Well done on meeting your walking goal early! I fell off the fitness wagon again last week, so need to climb back on. You'd think it would be easy to ride an exercise bike, but I always put it off until it's too late. Going to start riding it first thing in the morning so I don't have to worry about it! How are you liking the JD Robb books? Love that series, and it just keeps getting better and better IMO! Have a great week!

  17. I've been wanting to read Blueprints and still haven't read Zac and Mia either. The Guest Cottage is also on my TBR list.

  18. Looks like you had a good reading week. You are more ahead in in death series than I am. Looking forward to reading the first one soon.

  19. Good on you for hitting your target this week Katherine, glad you enjoyed the Gallipoli display, I love going to those things, I wonder if that's the same display that is coming soon to Brisbane?
    I just finished The Guest Cottage, my first Nancy Thayer. I really liked it and can't wait to read more. I've also got a few Mary Alice Monroe's on my TBR stack, audio and eBook. Have a great week, happy reading and quilting :)

  20. Sheree I think your Gallipoli display will be your own as this one is going to be here for a couple of years. Totally amazing the way museums present things these days. There have been huge crowds and it was squashed room only yesterday. Huge bigger than life displays by Weta Workshop - they said we weren't to touch and I can see why as I was so tempted to touch! The hair on their legs seemed so real!!

  21. Glad you had a good week. Hope this one is equally good.

  22. Can you believe I've never read a Cathy Lamb book? I was just approved for her new one on Netgalley. I'm excited to try it.

    Hope this week is a good one!

  23. Brandie I have her new one from NetGalley too and I am looking forward to it. I am wondering what she will have in store for me this time!
