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.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I received 2 beautiful hanging plants from my sons. And then we had Swiss Chalet chicken! Lovely treat – especially when I don’t have to cook!
What I Read Last Week
I read 5 books – a romance, 1 paranormal, 2 fantasies and a non-fiction/memoir.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. Finally! I read this this weekend, after so many starts and stops over the years and enjoyed it.
The Age of Creativity by Emily Urquhart, I have been reading this for a book study ad finished it today. What a fascinating look at creativity and old age, through the lens of her artist father.
Loves Billionaires and Dogs by Gina Robinson. A free ebook that was a fun romance read.
2 paranormal books by Mandy M. Roth, which I really enjoyed. At least 3 more in the series I hope to read.
Cloudy With a Chance of Witchcraft Hexing With a Chance of Tornadoes
What I’m Reading Now
House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas (800 pages! Great book so far)
What I am Reading Next
The Diary of Anne Frank (expanded version – for a book study)
Glad you enjoyed The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It’s definitely an old favorite of mine.
Thanks Mark. Glad that I finally did rad it – long overdue!
You are reminding me of the Sarah Maas books I have waiting to read. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is good. I remember reading that and a few others to my class many many moons ago.
Thanks Kathryn. I never did read the lewis book or series to any classes. I taught usually gr. 2 or 3.
Glad you had a nice Mother’s day! I haven’t read Narnia in so long…
Thanks Greg. It was an enjoyable read.
I still want to start the Crescent City series.
Wishing you a great reading week
Thanks Shelleyrae. I have’t fiished her other series, but so glad I’m into book 2 of this series.
Nice looking variety of books. It has been years since I read The Chronicles of Narnia. I have them on my Keeper shelves though. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Thanks Kathy. I can see why it’s on your Keeper Shelf. Happy reading to you as well.
I like the cover of Gina Robinson’s book, it looks fun. Happy Mother’s Day! Have a great week!
Thanks Cindy. Hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day.
I just finished “The Book of Lost Names”! I really enjoyed it 🙂 Glad you had a good Mother’s Day. I did too 🙂
Thanks Colletta. Glad you did too. Really looking forward to that book as well.
800 pages! Oh, my! You’re always reading a variety of books that appeal to me, but I don’t know if I can take on an 800-pager right now, even with the Big Book Summer challenge starting soon!
Thanks Laurie. It does meet a couple of challenges and I really enjoyed book 1. I read a bit each day.
I forgot there was a book #1!
