It’s Monday! What are You Reading?

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.

It was a good week, especially for reading, We got a foot of snow over the past few days and had 2 neighbours help with shoveling, as well as my son. Hard to believe we are almost at the end of January. Hope everyone as a good week.

I read 5 books plus 4 picture books – 2 women’s fiction, a romance a fantasy and a YA fantasy.

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover. Loved this – my first read by this author. Have already checked out more books.

Every Summer After by Carley Fortune. A new author to me and I’ll be looking for more of her work. Really enjoyed this one.

Well Traveled by Jen DeLuca Finally finished this and so enjoyed the last of the series (so far)

Ruby Fever by Iloan Andrews. Have so enjoyed this series. Hope they will continue with more books in this world.

Radiance by Alyson Noel. This was a read for a book challenge (one word title) and it was okay – a YA fantasy. Interesting world she created though.

I have been taking part in Storystorm this month – a picture book challenge, to create a pb idea each day as well as read inspiring posts. I’m trying to read more pbs as well. Here are 4 I rea this past week, all excellent reads.

Oceans by Carron Brown and Becky Thorns

The Unbreakable Thread by Emily Joof, illus by Asma Enayeh

The One Thing You’d Save by Linda Sue Park, illus by Robert Sae-Hrng

Yetis are the Worst by Alex Willan

  1. Yikes! 2 feet of snow! I, like my fellow PNW-ers, am a complete weather-wimp! At the mere suggestion of snow, we go and hide in our homes!

    Well, I hope you had some good reading time during all that snow. Have a great week!

    • I’ve enjoyed the whole series. Yes, there is fighting, not sure if it’s a lot.
      Finally heard about the floods in New Zealand on our news here. I had checked after I read your post and then this evening there was a devastating report about the floods. So much destruction. I pray for all those affected.

      • Funnily enough when I checked I had read the first in the series and given it four stars. I need to go back and maybe reread that one and go from there.

  2. That’s a lot of snow! We’ve just had light snow the past week. Nice looking assortment of books. I like Ruby Fever and Well Traveled too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  3. We were too south in Texas to get snow, but we had ice, which isn’t nearly as fun. 🙂 It was great reading weather, though. Happy to see you also enjoyed Every Summer After and Well Traveled. I have mixed experiences with Hoover’s books but I haven’t read It Ends With Us yet. It’s waiting on my shelf, so it’s nice to hear you enjoyed it! Happy reading in February!
