It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (October 10, 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...

This was another quiet week filled with baseball. My Braves won their division and now are waiting to begin the playoffs. I've been watching Wild Card games to see who they will play and was glad to see that their first opponent will be the Phillies. They next play on Tuesday.

I'm behind on watching The Voice and hope to catch up this week. I've only seen the first two episodes. However, catching up means I can't be listening to my current audiobook which I also want to do.

I caught up on posting my reviews at Amazon and also added some new review books to my stack. I have titles stretching out until May. I have six more to read for November but four of them won't be released until November 29. That means I have a gap to fit in some of my own books. 

Having finally finished all of my Added in 2008 collection except for Nora Roberts's The Gift which is on my calendar for December, I went browsing through my physical TBR stack for some books that still seemed interesting. In order to reduce the physical size of that collection, I've been trying to choose hardcovers.

Besides baseball, this coming week has a couple of medical appointments. Wednesday I'm scheduled for by flu shot and next Covid booster. Thursday, I make my annual visit to my gastroenterologist. I'm not looking forward to either because I'll need to actually leave my house and drive to the appointments complete with finding parking. My gastroenterologist's office is in the middle of a construction zone as the hospital is expanding which makes parking especially challenging. Wish me luck!

What was your week like?


  1. Enjoy your baseball and your books. I am also having my flu shot and next booster this month. Have a great week.

  2. Congrats toyour team! Baseball playoffs sound fun. and good luck with your appts too! I hope the parking goes well.

    The Villa looks good. I've read some Rachel Hawkins lately...

  3. The Anne Bishop audios are certainly worth rereading. A h finding parking can be really difficult, all the best.

  4. Nice! Hope you're enjoying your reread of Bishop's series! I can never figure out if the spinoff is still going or not. The releases have felt a little sporadic as of late.

    Hope you enjoy all of your reads lined up for this week!

  10. Visiting the doctor is so challenging lately. I pray you find a parking spot easily enough.

    Congratulations on catching up on reviews and polishing off the books you added in 2008.
