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 7 books – two historical romances, a non-fiction, 2 chap books/MG novels and 2 pix books.
When a Duchess Says I Do by Grace Burrowes. Another wonderful historical romance, part of another enjoyable series.
An Offer From a Gentleman by Julia Quinn. The third book in the Bridgerton series which I am enjoying.
The Well-Gardened Mind by Sue Stuart-Smith . I have been reading this for my book club and finally finished it. A fascinating read, a strong case for the power of nature, of gardens.
A Day of Signs and Wonders by Kit Pearson. A fun imaginary tale of two young artists (Emily Carr and Kathleen Reilly) meeting and spending a day together.
Starla Jean by Elaine K. Arnold, illus by A.N. Kang. A cute story.
What Would You Do in a Book About You by Jean Reidy, illus. by Joey Chou. What would a book about you be like? Fun answers.
M is for Masterpiece by David Domeniconi, illus. by Will Bullas, A wonderful look at great art, with lots of info for parents and teachers to enhance the read.
What I’m Reading Now
For Connect 5 Friday, I had a list of 5 books I started this week but just couldn’t get into. I hope to read at least a couple this week, although a couple need to be returned to the library.
Wild at Heart by K.A. Tucker
Love Your Life by Sophie Kinsella
