It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.
Happy Monday (well, as happy as a Monday can be…lol) everyone and I hope you all had a great weekend!!
I had an OK weekend. Saturday rained and we couldn’t get anything done. We ended up watching TV (the new Mortal Kombat movie for the older kids, Little Rascals for Miss R and Lovecraft County for BK and myself).
Sunday, we went to Pigeon Forge, TN for a daytrip. We haven’t been on day trips since, well, before the pandemic, so it was a big hit with the kids. We went to an arcade, played mini-golf, and went on this Jurassic Park ride before making the almost 4 hour ride home. It felt so good to get out of the house!!
I didn’t do a whole lot of reading over the weekend. But I did finished The Chestnut Man by SorenSveistrup yesterday. Talk about a good book with a plot twist that I didn’t see coming!!
I also had the first book in The Other’s series come off hold (finally). So I will be reading that this week…along with the other books listed today.
So, how was your weekend? Read anything good? Any great adventures?
Let me know!!
What I am Reading Now:
I am curious to see how I will like The Promised Queen. I had read and reviewed The Orchid Throne and liked it. But, I was on hiatus when The Fiery Crown was published and missed reviewing it. So, we’ll see how much I like The Promised Queen. So far, I am liking it.
What I plan on reading this week:
Speaking of reading books out of order, Written in Red came off hold for me last night. So, I will be reading that first. Then the other two books that I have had sitting on my currently reading list for 3 weeks. I do have one book that could potentially come off hold from library (but the wait time says 2 weeks….so we’ll see).

A day trip sounds good, but alas, we are in lockdown again here. I did have my grandkids over on the weekend, so I at least saw some other people. I am listening to The Last Train to Key West and reading Her Child to Protect by Delores Fossen. I am enjoying them both, but they are very different from one another.
Oh no 🙁 That’s too bad about being in lockdown again. Yay on having the grandkids. I’ll have to check both of those books out!!!
