It’s time once again for Kathryn’s weekly meme “It’s Monday! What are You Reading“, at Book Date, where we share what we’re reading and have read over the past week.
What I Read Last Week
Even with Christmas shopping and preparations, I was able to have a good week of reading – I read 7 books: 2 picture books, 2 Christmas contemporary romances, 1 historical romance, 1 MG novel, and a memoir.
Here are the books I read:
Feeding My Mother by Jann Arden. I love Jann Arden and her music. Through the pages of her memoir, we see how she faces the increasing dementia of her mother as well as the loss of her father. So moving, in many parts. She even provides some recipes.
Wicked Highland Ways by Mary Wine. An absorbing historical fiction, where we really get to appreciate the horrible state of women’s rights in the 16th century.
A Midnight Clear by Hope Ramsay A lovely Christmas novella.
Christmas on Mistletoe Lane by Annie Rains. I enjoyed this Christmas novel.
The Curious Snowflake by James C. Struck. This was a very interesting allegory/parable, one that should be read to children.
2 enjoyable picture books by Heather Smith
The Phone Booth in Mr. Hirota’s Garden A Plan for Pops
