It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - Mar 5



Looks like Musing Monday is on hiatus, so this week I'm featuring a different blog meme.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

These are the books I read while we were away on vacation...



These books I have started...



I'm loving Caroline, which is a story of the Ingalls family's trip from Wisconsin to settle in Kansas told from Caroline's point of view. It's interesting to witness this well-known journey evolve from a wife and mother's perspective instead of that of a young girl. I can relate to it told this way better now than Laura's version.

What have you read recently? What books are coming up?

Nice variety of books. I'd be interested in Caroline too since I devoured the Little House books when I was younger. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I loved Caroline! So glad you are too.

Caroline looks like a book I would enjoy.

I am also curious about Hot Mess.

Enjoy your week and your reading...and thanks for visiting my blog.

Thanks for visiting, ladies. Kathy and Beth, Caroline is definitely worth the reading time. Love, love love Miller's descriptions. Wish I could write like that.

Hot Mess is fun, Laurel. You should check it out.

Enjoy the rest of your week, everyone.

I have a bunch of Charlotte Hubbard books in my to-read stacks that I'm really looking forward to reading.
I'm glad to hear the Caroline book was good. It's on my to-read list, but I'm waiting to buy it until I finish the two other Laura Ingalls Wilder books that I currently have in my to-read stacks.

I just added Hot Mess to my to read list on Goodreads. I love the Little House books so I may add Caroline too.

These are all new-to-me titles, thanks for sharing! I hope you have a good, productive reading week ahead of you.

Thanks for stopping by, everyone. Angela, Charlotte Hubbard is definitely worth making time for. I never miss one of her books. Pilch, Hot Mess is a fun read so far. Hope you end up grabbing it. Myra, hope you have a great reading week.

My book club is reading The Long Winter this month, so this is timely! I've read a children's book about Caroline's mother (grandmother? I lose track) Martha, and I read a biography of Laura Ingalls's daughter Rose (who helped a lot with editing and publishing the books) but I haven't tried Caroline yet -- it looks interesting.
