It’s Monday! What are You Reading?

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 a week this has been! I had my socially-distanced birthday, with my husband away at dialysis. But at least we are all well. Then hell broke out in the US capitol. Let’s hope sanity will prevail and Trump can be impeached.

 What I Read Last Week

I read 6 books – 2 picture books, a romance novella, a non-fiction book, a contemporary romance and an historical romance.

happiness of pursuit20170321

The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau I read this for a book study and found it fascinating. We all need a passion, a pursuit to follow.

  1. The Christmas Dare looks so good! I love the cover! I’m really into historical fiction at the moment since watching Bridgerton so was going to add Dreaming of you, but honestly, I would hate reading a book where I dislike the main character! Happy Reading!

    • Thanks Karry-Ann. I really did enjoy that book – and the main character’s transformation thru the book was part of that. Still haven’t seen Bridgerton – but have book on hold at library.

  2. Happy Birthday! I hope you had a nice day. It certainly was a week of ups and downs. It sounds like your reading week was a good one! I hope you are enjoying your current reads. Have a great week, Beverly!
