It's Monday! What Are You Reading? & Mailbox Monday - Jan 25

Welcome to It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday.


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 organize 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.

OMG! What a weekend! I am exhausted. Work has been crazy. It sure doesn't help that is so cold I don't even want to walk the dog. Okay, maybe not that bad, but cold and windy is not my cup of tea. 

Here is what I managed for reading this week.

My reviews of these two appeared at my children's book blog.  

I am reading these right now. 

A first chapter review of Cruising the Mississippi will be posted here today.

My review of this book will appear at my children's book blog on Thursday. 

Next up are these two for virtual book tours. 

Next up will be this one. I might try to sneak it in between other books, but not sure if my schedule leaves a ton of time for reading. 

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

My physical mailbox remained empty this week, unless you want to count the bills. I picked up this short one on Sunday because it was free. I added it to my 2021 Craving for Cozies Reading Challenge list.

This winter cozy mystery series can be read in one to two hours. It is perfect for those moments when you are waiting at an appointment or want to enjoy a quick read.

Sarah Garland, a retired homicide detective who’s gone through a painful divorce, seems to have found her peace at last, as a coffeeshop owner, in the sleepy (and freezing) small town of Snow Falls, Alaska. What she didn’t expect, was for her past life to catch up with her. Or, for her new life as a mystery writer to inspire a deadly killer to target her.

Yet, when the killer leaves a frightening clue-a creepy snowman, donning a leather jacket and eating a peppermint candy cane, left in front of her cabin-Sarah begins to suspect Conrad Spencer, the new detective in town, who is pursuing a murderer of his own.

Soon, it becomes obvious that the sleuths would have to join forces, in order to catch the killer. Sarah and Conrad must put their tragic pasts behind them and find out who’s after her…before the trail becomes frozen.

How has your reading schedule been lately? Is it cold where you are? What is your favorite part about winter?

Sounds like The Snowman Killer is popular with everyone this week. It isn't very long, so that helps.

Thanks for visiting. Hope you have a great week.
