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

This was a busy week between doctor's appointments and baseball playoffs. I got my flu shot and next Covid booster and had no side effects except soreness at the injection sites for a day or so. My gastro visit went well too. 

I woke up to snow on the ground both Friday and Saturday morning. Luckily, it all melted away before afternoon. We beat our record for snowfall on October 13 by getting 2 inches of snow. The old record was half an inch. I would be quite content to see no more snowfall until December, but I doubt I'll be that lucky.

Baseball was disappointing. My Braves lost to the Phillies and have ended their season. It should be an interesting end to the baseball season with so many of the favorites, except the Houston Astros, being eliminated. I'll be watching the Yankees and Guardians game later today. I'm hoping for the Guardians who have a 2 to 1 lead as this day begins. 

I can also switch my viewing to following the Minnesota Vikings football games and watching The Voice. I decided not to catch up on the episodes I missed, but just start watching now. 

I need to get back to reading the books that are on my calendar and stop my side trips into the Kris Longknife series and The Others series. I do intend to keep reading the Kris Longknife series which is why I bought the rest of the series this week, but I'm taking a break for a while. 

I don't have any appointments this week though my brother is seeing his cardiologist on Wednesday, but I have two appointments next week. I'm planning on taking advantage of this unscheduled week. 

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.)
  • Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop (Audiobook Reread) -- 3rd in The Others series.

Other than the Kris Longknife books, these were all Kindle or BookBub deals.
What was your week like?


  1. Your reading is impressive! Have another great week.

  2. Snow already! Glad you're enjoying the Kris Longknife series. They look good. I'll have to look into Girls in the snow as well.

  3. Many of the people around here are excited about the Astros being in the playoffs! Sorry about your team.

    I got my shots this week, too, with similar results.

  4. Oh wow! Snow in October! To think I'm happy if we can go the month without getting into 80 degrees! But it looks like that won't even happen if this week's weather is anything to go by!

    Nice lineup of reads! Mostly new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them all this week!

    Here's my Monday Wrap-up

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  5. Glad to hear you didn't have any side effects from your vaccines. I've been hesitating about getting the booster.

    It's too early for snow. Hopefully it stays away for a bit.

    Dashing through the Snowbirds looks like a great book. I will have to check your review. The Belle of Belgrave Square was at another blog this week. Love that cover.

    Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog.

  6. Enjoy your reading and hope you stay snow free for a while.

  7. We haven't had snow yet, but it's very cold these days. Hoping for a warm up end of week. It's nice to have a cleared schedule to just do what you like.

  8. Sounds like a pretty decent week! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  9. The title of Vinyl Resting Place caught my attention, looks fun! Never Name the Dead interests me too
