It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Wow, this month has gone by really fast! Hard to believe the year is almost half over. Hope everyone is having a lovely spring (if it is spring where you are). 

I think time is moving a little faster for me because we’ve been a little more active this month. Now that the hubby and I are fully vaccinated, we’ve been venturing out a bit and trying to recover some of that “normal” life we can just barely remember. Haven’t been to a restaurant or theater yet, but we’ve been doing a little more "real world" shopping instead of ordering everything online. Actually, what we’ve mainly been doing is spending lots of time in doctors’ and dentists’ offices. Somehow we’ve managed to get most of our annual checkups and screenings scheduled in April and May — so that’s been taking up a lot of our time. Not exactly FUN, but at least it’s been getting us out of lockdown. 

We have been doing a little gardening, though — and that definitely is fun. Well, it’s fun for me because I mostly just pick out the plants at our local nurseries, and then the hubby does all the planting and upkeep. But he enjoys it and I like watching everything bloom. So, win-win. 

And even though time seems to be slipping away from me, I did manage to read a few books in May. Last week I finished several I've had going...

(A Kate Palmer Mystery),

This week, I'll be continuing with one of the ARCs I'm trying to finish up...

I've also been reading Jane Eyre this year, off and on, and I'm hoping to finish that this week as well.

Up next...

(Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes #17), 
by Laurie R. King

Happy reading, everyone!
Happy Memorial Day, if you're in the US.
And have a great week!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. If you want to let the world know what you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs. 


  1. You have some intriguing books! I am curious about Life in Miniature, as I am fascinated with doll houses.

    It is definitely good to reclaim some of our normal lives again; I have gone to some restaurants, but cautiously. I am also getting caught up on doctor appointments.

    Enjoy your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  2. It’s the start of winter where I am, so it’s getting chilly.
    Dead dead girls looks interesting

    Wishing you a great reading week

  3. I liked Castle Shade and can hardly wait to reread it in audio when it is available at Audible. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  4. Oh glad to hear you guys have been able to get out more! Even it is for appointments, at least it's something to do :)
    These are all new books to me, I'll have to check them out! Hope you have a great week!

  5. It's so nice that things are starting to come back. Hopefully the fools who won't get vaccinated don't get each other sick and stop all the progress.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
