It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (Feb. 17, 2020)

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...

This week started my annual doctor visits. I had my annual physical and annual mammogram. My doctor decided that I could take one less blood pressure medication - maybe. My blood pressure was pretty low when it was checked at her office. Since I had lost 31 pounds since I saw her a year ago, I can't say that I was surprised.

I'm scheduled to have blood work to check my cholesterol and A1C next Monday. I'll also have a blood pressure recheck. If my blood pressure is still okay, she wants to remove one other medication which adds potassium. I'm also meeting with my gastroenterologist next week. I'll be talking to him about medication too. I think the one my doctor wants to remove is there because the medication I take for my Crohn's leaches potassium.

Beyond a couple of medical appointments, I spent the week listening to my new audiobooks. Next week I'll have Spring Training baseball to watch which I am really eager to see.

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.)


  • Lake Silence by Anne Bishop - I'm listening to my new Audible book.

What was your week like?


  1. OOh nice! Lots of Anne Bishop! I remember you enjoy re-reading this series once a year! Do you know if she's continuing the spinoff? I'm dying to know if there's more!

    Happy Reading!

  2. I'm curious about the Hank Green book. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. Good luck with all the medical stuff. Enjoy your books and have a great week!

  4. Have a great week Kathy and good luck with all your doctor appts.💗

  5. Wow. Is spring training almost here? You will enjoy that.

    Good news about being taken off medicines. I try to stay away from doctors if I can. They always seem to want to put you on something. I like to fight troubles at the start.

  6. Oh, man, the Other's series is a favourite of mine! I need to read more of her books besides that and the Black Jewels series! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
