It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (February 14, 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...

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm writing this on a sunny and cold Super Bowl Sunday. We are under a wind chill advisory. The current temperature is -4 F. Our high temperature for the day is supposed to be 4 F. Luckily, I have no plans or needs that will take me out of the house. 

Last week was quiet. We had a couple of warm-for-Minnesota days, a little snow, and now a cold snap. I spent my time reading and listening to audiobooks and catching bits and pieces of the Olympics. I even tried to catch the curling since the men's team is from Duluth, MN - my birthplace and current home. I will admit that I first found curling baffling, but the more I see of it the more it is starting to make sense. 

This was a big week for adding review copies to my stack. I didn't make much progress on my current pile since I got sidetracked into listening to a trilogy that I first read a couple of years ago as review books. I would like to finish my March releases next week, but I don't feel any particular rush. The next review book on my stack will be released on March 22, and the last three for March are all to be released on the 29th.

There is nothing on this week's schedule but watching more of the Olympics.

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.)
  • Citizen K-9 by David Rosenfelt (Review; March 15) -- The K-9 team has been hired by the Patterson Police Department to work on cold cases. The first one they choose took place at Corey's 15th Class Reunion. My review will be posted on March 9.
  • The Hills Have Spies by Mercedes Lackey (Mine; Audiobook Reread) -- This YA fantasy is the first in the Valdemar Family Spies trilogy. Here's my review from July 3, 2019.
  • Abandoned in Death by J. D. Robb (Mine) -- The latest in the In Death series was another excellent story. My review will be posted on March 1.

What was your week like?


  1. You have so many tempting titles. I'm glad you are enjoying your indoors time with good books.

    Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  2. that's a feat to have 2 books with imposter/impostor in the same post!
    I also received Pandian and Zevin, but I have another netgalley to read before (After the Romanovs), and before that, I need to finish another ARC Lean on Me.
    One day, i'll need to try Robb!
    Enjoy all these wonderful books.

  3. Weather has been weird around here. Saturday we hit 57, but yesterday it snowed... a lot. I cleared the driveway three times.

    The Perfect Equation and Fake It Till You Bake It caught my eye this week. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a nice week.

  4. Brrr it is cold where you are. We are in the 70s today! You always have a great list of books and I always find at least one to add to my ever growing TBR

    Here is my link:

  5. Wow, that's cold! My dad is from Wisconsin and once tried to explain curling to me. I still don't get it. Enjoy your new books!

  6. I haven't gotten to watch very much of the Olympics this time. I hope you have a great week ahead and Happy Valentine's Day :)


  7. A group of my friends back in NY have formed a curling club and are having so much fun! I guess I should try and watch it again since I can't figure out what is/should be happening. Nice variety of books this week - enjoy, and stay warm.

  8. I love your assortment of books. Happy reading, stay warm!

  9. I love your list of books. With such cold weather, all I would want to do is read. Enjoy and have a great week!

  10. I'm still a bit confused with curling. I'm not a sports person but have see articles mention this sport and yeah, it's definitely one that has me puzzled! Lol.

    Nice lineup of reads! All totally new to me ones but I hope you enjoy your reads for this week!

    Here's my Monday Wrap-up

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  11. It is cold here too, but not as cold as your weather.

    THE SUMMER GETAWAY looks good…I am doing a spotlight of it.

    AN IMPOSSIBLE IMPOSTOR should also be good.

    Have a wonderful week, Kathy.

  12. I've been watching Olympics too. and it's been cold here. Not as cold as there but close.

  13. I have caught a bit of the Olympics but not much!

    Have a great week.

  14. Lots of great additions, enjoy!

    Wishing you a great reading week

  15. I like the sound of Fake It Till You Bake It.

    We've only been catching little bits of the Olympics.

    And it's been surprisingly cold---down below freezing again for the third time this winter.

  16. Yeah, March is pretty far away still! Wish I was that organized! It was nice here, the snow gone-and then the past two days it's snowed. It's annoying! But sounds like a great reading week! Yeah for Kelley Armstrong and Deanna Raybourne! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  17. Ooh, -4 and 4 sound miserable. I complain when our high is "only" 50.

    You have an impostor theme this week. I had to look back to see if you had accidentally repeated a title or if they were two books in a series. How funny that they appear to be unrelated!

  18. Are your temperatures starting to warm up a little? I can't imagine living someplace so cold. I guess it's good I live where I do. LOL I always get excited when I see a Mercedes Lackey Valdemar book. I haven't read one in years, but I sure did love that series for years. I hope you enjoy your reading! You have some great books ahead of you!
