It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (Nov. 25, 2019)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

I will be combining my YA and adult reading and purchases on this one weekly roundup.

Other Than Reading...

I don't know where the time went this week. All of a sudden it's Saturday.

I did pick up my new-to-me bread machine and got the ingredients to make my first loaves of bread. With Thanksgiving coming, I decided to make a stuffing bread recipe from 500 Low Sodium Recipes. It turned out well and I have cubed and dried enough for our stuffing to go with the turkey breast which we are actually going to have tomorrow. I was going to try a recipe that makes the turkey breast in the crockpot but the breast won't fit in mine. I guess I'll be roasting it in the oven.

I spent most of the week enjoying Spinning Silver which encouraged careful reading because of the wonderful language and characters. I've set on optimistic goal of three books for next week. My reading pace has really slowed down this last part of the year. I have 100 books that I received in 2019 that are still unread. I keep chipping away at the pile but am not making very much progress.

Read Last Week

If you can't wait until the review shows up on my blog, reviews are posted to LibraryThing and Goodreads as soon as I write them (usually right after I finish reading a book.)

  • Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik (Mine) - A very enjoyable fantasy with a fairy tale feel told from multiple viewpoints. My review will be posted on Dec. 10.
  • Clouds of Witness by Dorothy L. Sayers (Mine) - The second Lord Peter Wimsey mystery was as entertaining as the first. I like the setting and characters. My review will be posted Dec. 11.


  • A Study in Sable by Mercedes Lackey - I am enjoying this fantasy which combines magic and Sherlock Holmes.

Nothing new this week.

What was your week like?


  1. I'm looking forward to the Thanksgiving stories. Every year there are many and all of them interesting.

  2. You are a bit like myself with the reading slowing. Hope the three you plan for work out.

  3. Under Currents looks like a book I should read.

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving and that stuffing, which sounds delicious.

  4. Time has really been flying this year. I'm hoping the long weekend will actually feel long as I have the sniffles. See what I've been reading at Girl Who Reads

  5. Spinning Silver has gotten a lot of praise this year.

    Wishing you a great reading week, and a happy Thanksgiving
