It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday - Oct 18

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.

Welcome back to Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. I didn't accomplish half as much as I planned, but that happens sometimes. I've been listening to some good podcasts and considering my 2022 business plan. 

The next few weeks will be hectic considering college tours, my trip to San Diego, a few closings, and many meetings. Pretty soon that will lead us into Thanksgiving and the holiday season. I know I could use some of that joy. How about you?

In my reading world, you should look for my review of this amazing book tomorrow.  

My review of this one is at my children's book blog

I am almost done with this one. This review will appear here on October 21. 

These are all next.

I haven't requested any other books to review, so maybe I will whack away at my TBR pile after that. 

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. 

Nothing in my physical mailbox this week, but I grabbed these freebies, two of which I should be reviewing soon.

Have you read any of these? What genre are you reading the most of these days? 

Hope you have a fabulous week.

Whacking away at your TBR sounds like a good plan for sure. We could all do that for sure.

Mercy Creek sounds amazing, I'm glad you enjoyed it and I'll definitely try to pop by for your review! And I feel ya on work and everything building up, before we know it it really will be Christmas! I hope you enjoy all your new reads and that you have a lovely week :)

I've been working on clearing my review shelf. Good luck to us both!

Kathryn and Mary, isn't it so hard to stay focused on your TBR pile? I travel around the blogosphere and find all kinds of fun things to read.

Mercy Creek was fabulous, Juli. I hope you read it. Yes, time is flying way too fast.

Thanks for visiting, everyone.

I'm looking forward to your review of Mercy Creek. It looks really good. I hope you have a great week!

Cheryl said...

Thanks, Laurel. I'm trying to mix it up these days.

Kathy, so glad to hear you got a chance to read Mercy Creek. Yvonne, hope you get a chance to read it.

Thanks for stopping by, everyone.

Glad to hear you really enjoyed Mercy Creek. I look for your review.
I like the Halloween season-themed background.
I always try to set a good part of my annual goal to TBRs as I will never read them all.
Happy Whacking at the TBR stack!
