It’s Monday What are you Reading?

It's Monday, What are you Reading copy

It’s Monday What are you Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It’s where we share what we’ve been reading this week and what we are planning to read over the next few days as well as any reviews.

This week has been a busy one for me, I’ve spent so much quality time with my kid’s and not had much time for blogging or reading.

I have continued reading The First Last Kiss by Ali Harris, I am absolutely loving this book. It’s so well written and such a fantastic idea for a book. It is written as a series of flash backs and this works brilliantly. I couldn’t recommend this one enough. It comes out in a couple of weeks and you can pre-order it here.

I have also started reading Persuasion by Jane Austen, I’ve read it twice before and just love it. I was really in the mood for some classics and am going to re-read a few of my favourites Austen novels in between the other books on my TBR list.

My list is exactly the same as last week so apologies if this is a bit boring but I’m re-using last weeks image!

013Never Can Say Goodbye by Christina Jones – You Had Me at Hello by Mhairi McFarlane – The Secret Supper Club by Dana Bate – Laura’s Handmade Life by Amanda Addison

Barbara PymBarbara Pym Collection

As I mentioned on last weeks list I a working on hosting a little vintage book group on Goodreads, which should be up and running by the end of the week. The idea is to read modern books with a vintage theme and great books from the 1940s and 50s. Please comment below if your interested in taking part or have any recommendations.

Have a great week, what are you reading?

    You’ve got me all curious about The First Last Kiss. Good for you for spending quality time with your kids. I did the same during their time off from school.

    The First Last Kiss sounds great & I absolutely love Persuasion, I’ve decided to re-read some of Jane Austen’s novels, too, this year, although no idea when.

    Happy reading!
