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

I read 7 books this past week, a varied list –2 women’s fiction, 2 contemporary romance2, 1 science fiction, 1 fantasy and 1 picture book.

Wild Country by Anne Bishop. At least I got another dip into The Others’ world. Loved it just as much as the first time I read it last year.

Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice. This dystopian novel was our community’s One Book One Community choice and it was a good one.

On Ocean Boulevard by Mary Alice Monroe. I have loved this series for a while and this latest was excellent.

summer cottage 40277425

The Summer Cottage by Viola Shipman. Another recent novel, this was so enjoyable.

 I read 2 short romances by Donna McDonald and was entertained by both. Both have older heroines which make them so interesting.

  1. I enjoyed your post. There are several books that I already have on my WTR list, but Grandmother School was new to me! Thank you so very much for sharing this interesting and important book!

  2. I have On Ocean Boulevard on reserve at the library, love her books. And the Viola Shipman book is on my shelf waiting to be read at just the right moment when I really need a book I know I’ll love.

    • Both of those drew me in quickly and kept me close. Such good books, such great writers. Hope you enjoy them both as much as I did. Definitely need great storytellers in these uncertain times

    • Thanks Brooke. I know, it sounds a lot, but I am retired and my hubby is till in hospital – can only see him ix a week. So I need to be occupied and what better way than to read. Haven’t read that one – will check it out.

  3. I got the audiobook of A Desperate Fortune after reading an ARC of The Deadly Hours. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet. I recently did a reread of The Others series but still have Wild Country to listen to again. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
