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, 5 were picture books. The other reads were 2 non-fiction books and 1 historical romance.
The past two weeks I have been also bingeing on The Others series by Anne Bishop and am reading the final, fifth book, Etched in Bone. As these are a reread I have not included them. They are emotional reads, comfort books, as this series always draws me in so much, I can temporarily forget the world around me.
Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah MacLean. I have read most of MacLean’s books and always enjoy them. This was no exception.
Dear Current Occupant by Chelene Knight. A Memoir in both prose and poetry, it was an intriguing read. It has also inspired my memoir writing.
The Finnish Way by Katja Pantzer. Thoroughly enjoyed this NF book, with a focus on highlighting how to live the sisu way.
The 12 Sleighs of Christmas by Sherri Duskey Rinker , illus. Jake Parker
I Don’t Draw, I Color by Adam Lehrhaupt, illus. Felicita Sala
The Color Monster by Anna Llenas
The Last Christmas Tree by Stephen Krensky, illus. by Pascal Campion
Moomin and the Little Ghost by Tove Jonsson
What I’m Reading Now
The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline
What’s Up Next
The Heirloom Garden by Viola Shipman
Wired for Story by Lisa Cron – this is for a writer’s book club; reading 2 chapters a week
The Deadly Hours by Susanna Kearsley -planning for November as part of Novella November
Sisu sounds like a great approach to life.
Wishing you a great reading week
Thanks Shelleyrae. Hope you have a great reading week as well.
I just finished a reread (actually a re-losten) of The Others series and then segued into some of favorite Liaden Universe series. I’ll have to get back to review books soon. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Thanks kathy. Haven’t read the other series you mentioned – will check it out.
Happy reading to you as well.
I haven’t reread The Others and in fact still have the last one to go. It is a great series though.
So agree Kathy. Just had a need for the familiar, in another world.
