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 8 books this past week, a varied list –1 historical novel. I MG novel, 1 contemporary romance, a women’s fiction, a fantasy and 3 picture books.
A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley. This was a reread but loved it as much as the first time. I wanted to prepare for her novella in the Deadly Hours, which features Mary and Hugh.
Stand on the Sky by Erin Bow, This debut MG novel was excellent. So much research obviously done, but such a compelling story.
Burned by Magicby Jasmine Walt. I enjoyed this fantasy, first book in a series.
Barefoot on a Starlit Night by Jo McNally. This was an enjoyable romance.
Wild Designs by Katie Fforde. This has been on my TBR shelf for some time and once I got into it, I was caught up in the story, especially as the couple involved were in their 40s . Always enjoy her books.
