It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (July 18, 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...

We had a nice sunny week and made lots of solar energy. The temperatures were really nice until Saturday when the temperatures and humidity got a little high for my comfort. The temperature hit 84 degrees F which I know isn't a big deal for a lot of you. It is high for my part of Minnesota.

I went outside and walked a couple of times, walked on my treadmill for a couple of minutes on a day I didn't want to go outside, and walked the aisles while doing some grocery shopping a couple of times too. It isn't much, but it is a start to getting used to walking again. 

I also spent a lot of time watching baseball on television. My Atlanta Braves are hanging in. I was disappointed that they couldn't beat the New York Mets when they played head-to-head though. This week is a baseball desert since it is All-Star Game week. Maybe I'll be able to really tackle some reading. 

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 Jigsaw Assassin by Catherine Asaro (Mine) -- This science fiction mystery is the fourth in a series starring retired soldier turned PI Major Bhaajan. I enjoyed it. My review will be posted on July 23.
  • Agent of Change by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller (Audiobook Reread)
  • Just Another Love Song by Kerry Winfrey (Review; August 2) -- Really nice contemporary love story. My review will be posted on July 26.
  • Carpe Diem by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller (Audiobook Reread)
  • The Secret of Bow Lane by Jennifer Ashley (Review; August 2) -- The fifth Kat Holloway mystery concerns a secret fortune that her long-dead husband might have had. It was an entertaining story. My review will be posted on July 30.
  • Plan B by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller (Audiobook Reread)
These are both really long and are taking quite a while.

What was your week like?


  1. Curious about Karen Rose. We try to walk in the botanical garden early mornings before the heat comes up to unbearable, lol.

  2. Tempting titles! I have enjoyed some books by T. R. Ragan. Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. What a long book list! The only author on your whole list that I have heard of is Dick Francis. And he’s a favorite of my husband’s. The world is so full of books!

    best… mae at

  4. It's been kinda nice here too. Warm but not too bad. Although it's 88 today. that's a bit much.

  5. We would love to have temps in the 84 degree range! Lucky you!

    I hope you are able to get some reading done while the All-Star game goes on.

  6. OOh nice! I am SOOO behind on Nalini's series. I really need to get caught up one of these days!

    Here's my Monday Wrap-up

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  7. Kuddos to you for walking on the treadmill. I gave mine away years ago because I never used it. :) Have a great week.

  8. I love my daily walk...glad you are getting one in too.

    Enjoy your books and your week, Kathy.

  9. Glad you're getting to walk outside. Too hot for that here, except overnight! 84° sounds lovely, but I guess everything's relative! Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by my blog. ♥

  10. The heat is brutal right now! I think it was 97 yesterday with the humidity factored in here in Wisconsin. The Dark Circle and In the Pines sound interesting, I hope you enjoy them!

  11. Yeah for solar energy, but boo heat and humanity! Hope you enjoyed Archangel's Resurrection, I did! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  12. Thanks for stopping by earlier! Hope it cools down for you soon.

  13. So many books. You have wonderfully eclectic taste in books. I like to think I do, too, but I don't read nearly as many books as you. You are an inspiration. I am trying to get back into walking. I just lost a lot of weight and I wasn't supposed to exercise because it messed with the science of it. Now I'm in maintenance and I can have a go again - as soon as the temperature goes down a bit. Love your site!

  14. The heat has been crazy. We expected some rain this week, but it didn't come. Glad it at least helped you generate energy.

    You have such a nice eclectic taste in books. Even the genres I wouldn't normally enjoy sound interesting. Hope you get some reading done.

    Thanks for visiting my blog this week.

  15. Yay for solar energy. Good for you doing even some walking. I have been walking the corners of all rooms in my house just so I get some exercise in.
    So many good books for you (as usual). I have thought to try the Lily Bard series. I checked your review and will keep this series in mind for future.
    I hope you've had a good week.
