It’s time once again for Kathryn’s weekly meme, “It’s Monday! What are You Reading?” hosted 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 -1 memoir, 1 women’s fiction, 2 romances, a paranormal and 3 picture books.

color of light 23638950

The Color of Light by Emilie Richards. Loved this novel – such complicated characters, with both Ana and Isaiah questioning their calling.

beyond words 52621467._SX318_SY475_

Beyond Words by Abby Brooks. Even though this was a free ebook, I so enjoyed this romance. Much of the book was written in emails between 2 people who never met, except through Cat’s journal.

h is for hawk 18803640._SY475_

H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald This memoir was read for a book club and I read the last 5 chapters this week. An incredible read – the language was so rich, the focus on grief so well done.

love in lockdown 55370830

Love in Lockdown by Chloe James. I was intrigued by the title and I so enjoyed this romance.

bitten and smitten 68400

Bitten and Smitten by Michelle Rowen. Another free ebook, this time a paranormal and a fun one.

My favourite picture book was:

phone booth43865504

The Phone Booth in Mr. Hirota’s Garden by Heather Smith and Rachel Wada. Based on a true story this was a touching read after the tsunami in Japan.

  1. My book club read H is for Hawk several years ago. Unfortunately, couldn’t make it and, because I was doing blog tours and such at the time and had so many books to read, I chose not to read it then. It’s still on my Kindle and I’ve heard nothing but good things about it–I should probably try to read it!

    • I find I have too many books on my TBR shelves – and so many I want to read from the library. I guess we just do what we can to read what appeals at the time. It was a good read tho

    • Thanks Kathryn. I had borrowed Anderson’s book digitally, then had to wait to get it back again. Now hope to finish it. Harry’s Trees certainly is different.

  2. Nice variety of books. I discovered a new-to-me urban fantasy series that has been holding my attention this week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
