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.
I am having my knee replacement surgery now this Tuesday. There was a cancellation and I was offered a new date, 2 weeks early. It has meant a lot of rushing around, but hopefully will mean less pain in the long run.
I probably won’t be posting (or even visiting blogs) for a few weeks. Not sure what the recovery will be like so am preparing to be laying low for awhile. I’ve got a bag of books ready to be read!
What I Read Last Week
I read 6 books – 2 romances, a paranormal romance, a mystery, an historical romance and a non-fiction.
Joyful by Ingrid Fetell Lee. I read this as a book read with my writing partner and enjoyed it. It was a deep dive into joy and how to become more joyful.
The Coppersmith Farmhouse by Devney Perry. I enjoy all of Perry’s novels and this was no exception. It is the first book in a series and am looking forward to reading more.
Hot Enough to Burn by Cynthia Eden. I really enjoyed this paranormal romance, by a new author to me.
Christmas at Holiday House by RaeAnne Thayne. I do enjoy holiday reads and really enjoyed this one – as well as this author.
Desperate Duchesses by Eloisa James. A good historical romance, part of a series I will be tracking down.
Secret, Book and Scone Society by . This was a cozy mystery by another new author and it was a favourite of the week.
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)
The Clover Chapel by Devney Perry
Hope your surgery and recovery go well. Take care of yourself. We’ll be here when you get back.
Thanks Mark. I’m sure all will go well.
One more week to work and then my reading will really amp up! Can I possibly do 8 books per week instead of 4?
Enjoy that reading!
Oh, I will!
Best of luck for your knee surgery and recovery. I hope everything goes smoothly. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Thanks Kathy. I hope so too! Happy reading.
Good luck with your surgery!
Thanks! Happy reading.
Will be thinking of you Bev, hop the Op goes well, as I write it is Tuesday here but for you no doubt the night before. May God be with you.
Thanks Kathryn. Prayers are powerful things.
Joyful looks good. I hope your knee surgery goes well.
Thanks so much.
Wishing you a speedy recovery! A friend just had knee surgery (not a replacement) and was told to start walking on it (with crutches) almost right away, so hopefully you will only be laid up long enough to get through all your books!
I hope the surgery went well! Enjoy reading during your recovery. I’m a big Eloisa James fan,
