It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (January 17, 2022)

 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...

It was another typical winter week in northern Minnesota. We had some really cold days and some snow too. I didn't leave the house. 

I had a good reading and listening week, and I planned my March calendar and set up the posts for completion. I chose a lot of books from TBR mountain to read in March. I also slotted in a variety of audiobooks both new and rereads of older books. 

I have a lot of review books coming up on my calendar. The two I'm currently reading will finish up February's review titles. But Beneath the Stairs is going slowly. I'm having trouble with the flashback scenes.

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.)
  • The Deepest of Secrets by Kelley Armstrong (Review; February 15) -- The latest in the Casey Duncan/Rockton series was an entertaining story that felt like the end of the series. My review will be posted on February 9.
  • A Perfect Equation by Elizabeth Everett (Review; February 15) -- This historical romance was heavy on social commentary. My review will be posted on February 8.
  • An Impossible Imposter by Deanna Raybourn (Review; February 15) -- The latest Veronica Speedwell historical mystery was entertaining and twisty. My review will be posted on February 10.
  • A Sense of Danger by Jennifer Estep (Kindle and Audiobook) -- Urban fantasy series debut that was entertaining. I got the Kindle and Audiobook March 4, 2021. My review will be posted on February 19.

What was your week like?


  1. It seems like we had our first snow of the season just this weekend. It wasn't too bad as we still went out to run errands and such. It's just cold.

    Hope you enjoy your reads lined up for this week! These are new to me ones. Sorry to hear your current read is bogging you down with flashbacks. When incorporated right, a flashback can be helpful but if there are too many, they can get annoying.

    Here's my Monday Wrap-up

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. We are having rotten weather of another kind. Very hot, dry and also humid. I am just glad that I do not get out much. Very nice list of reads, I like the Raybourn one very much. I've found it impossible to get her books on Netgalley.

  3. Wow so many good looking reads. Hope you have a great week.

  4. So many tempting books! The Night Shift is one I'm hoping to read. Enjoy!

  5. Wow! Great collection! Thanks for stopping by Colletta's Kitchen Sink :)


  6. So ma y books to choose from! Have another good reading week!

  7. You've got some great reading ahead of you! I enjoy Raybourn's books and need to get back to that series. It's been years since I last read a Mercedes Lackey book. She was one of my favorite fantasy writers for many years. I hope you have a great week and enjoy your books!

  8. The Susan Mallery books look really good. So does the Diane Kelly book. I hope you have a great week! Stay warm!

  9. wow, another amazing collection!
    Raybourn is a great author.
    I goofed and pasted the link from last week on the linky for the meme.
    So here is the link for this week:

  10. I don't think I've read any of Raybourn's work but I have several of her books on my TBR. I'm always so impressed by how far ahead you schedule your reading.

    Enjoy your week!

  11. I enjoy the Veronica Speedwell books. I need to catch up on those.

  12. Great books! While I am aching for spring, the idea of snow keeping me inside so I can read has a certain appeal! - Melinda @ A Web of Stories

  13. Your talk on winter in Minnesota reminds me of the Hard Winter the Ingalls family had in South Dakota. Probably sounds silly, but that's what came to mind.

    So glad you are finishing up your February books. I am hoping to complete January early, but not looking promising right now.

    How to Love Your Neighbor looks cute. Hope you enjoy all your books. Thanks for visiting my blog today. Hope you stay warm and dry.

  14. Oh you have some awesome books! On one of Kelley Armstrong's social media posts, I'm pretty sure I read that The Deepest of Secrets is the end of the series, but not the last time we'll see the characters. So excited as to where we'll see these characters (and which) next! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  15. I can't wait to read the latest Rockton.

  16. I'm trying to read more of the Fools Gold series too! Have an awesome rest of your week Kathy!😷📚💜
