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.
Another fairly quiet, relaxing week –only watched 1 movie with my hubby. At least we had help with the heavy snowfall last week. And staying in where it was warm was the best thing to do.
What I Read Last Week
I read 8 books – a romance, 3 paranormal romances, two historical romances, a poetry book and a pix book.
The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley. This was another reread of my favourite novel – this historical romance with time travel is so well written. I needed a time travel book for a reading challenge and this was the only one I wanted to read. I enjoy starting the new year with this exceptional novel.
White Lies Running Hot
2 paranormal romances by Jayne Ann Krentz. Continuing with the present-day Arcane Society series –both enjoyable reads.
Portrait of a Scotsman by Evie Dunmore. This was another in her historical romance series and it was so good.
Midlife Witch Unexpected by Melle Amade. A fun paranormal novel, with an older heroine
The Hill We Climb by Amanda Gorman. Her inaugural poem set in book form. Read it several times – so powerful.
Love Everlasting by Tracey Alvarez. Really enjoyed this contemporary romance.
I Have Cerebral Palsy by Mary Springer. Such a special picture book, full of information for young children. I reviewed this for Multicultural Children’s Book Day (Jan. 28th). So many wonderful books were highlighted.
What I’m Reading Now
Year of Yes by Shonda Rimes (for my book club)
Becoming by Michelle Obama (starting this for my book club)
What’s Up Next
5 Little Indians by Michelle Good
Lots of good reads. Interesting to see you enjoyed a Tracey Alvarez book, I read a couple of her books as she started out. She lives in Wellington NZ. Amanda Gorman’s poem was so good, to read it in a book would be so wonderful. Must read The Rose Garden, maybe via audio at some point.
An interesting mix, enjoy
Wishing you a great reading week
Thanks Shelleyrae. Have a great reading week yourself.
I’m working my way through Kearsley’s backlist but haven’t gotten to The Rose Garden yet. I have both the Kindle and Audiobook and plan to move it up nearer the top of the stack. I love Jayne Ann Krentz in all her guises. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Thanks Kathy. Hope you Enjoy The Rose Garden. I’m really enjoying Krentz’s books. Happy reading to you as well.
A nice mix. I like the cover of Love Everlasting, cute. Have a good week. ttps://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2022/01/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-4-22.html
Thanks Cindy. It was a sweet book. Have a good week yourself.
yay for Kearsley! Always a treat.
I really need to read Evie Dunmore.
Thanks Marg. So agree with you about Kearsley and I am sure you’d like Dunmore.
