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!
And another week passes swiftly, we had clear calm sunny weather, although cold of course, the grass doesn't dry with no wind. But today was colder and no sun. But I don't mind cool weather so long as I am not out in it!
Today I sat down and deleted and tidied up a second Kindle I have, to lend a few books to one of my sisters. Well I had to do every book that I wasn't deleting, as I had still a lot of books, it took me a lot longer than I thought. Lesson learned, return to the beginning when I have finished a book on my Kindle! So now all I have to do is deliver it and hope she can manage it.
What I read last week:
While I won't be writing a review here on the blog for Small Great Things from my TBR pile I loved it and it will be one of my top reads of 2017 for sure, it was my top read for May and I read many very good books in May, so stiff competition.
From the review shelf...
I had tried another book by RaeAnne Thayne and didn't like it, but have to say this one I did like and so I can see why others have enjoyed her books.
Middle Grade fiction.
I have read the other books in this series and Soon came out in 2015 and I hadn't reached on it. The war has just ended and Felix is in Poland as a 13yr old. Life is tough, but his wonderful compassionate, courageous, optimistic and funny voice is still present. Morris Gleitzman has done a superb writing effort with this series, I admire them so much. At times very heartbreaking though. I just visited his site while writing this and I see he intends to write at least two more. So hope he does, taking us to Felix's journey to Australia and when he is elderly.
And from the TBR shelf I read Saving Grace. I enjoyed it although wasn't a keeper for me.
