It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

So, this week I didn't have a phone for like four days. It was really weird at first, but then I slowly but surely started to like it. The weather was a bit of a bummer most of the week, but right now is absolutely gorgeous, at 8pm. The forecast for the week ahead is going to be beautiful and I am so excited! Today we we went to a vintage bike sale and market; there were hundreds of old bikes - I kept expecting to spot the kids from Stranger Things lurking about somewhere, or some kids from an 80s buddy movie. I saw some pretty cool ones, and I loved the names of them the best. I saw a Grey Ghost, and all the Schwinn names were awesome, Stingray and Meteor and Panther and many more.

Read Last Week:

So I am going through the entire backlist of Jenny Colgan apparently. But I also read a completely different book too! See, not having a phone...


The Nature Fix by Florence Williams - I absolutely loved this book. It was a bit of a slower read, as it had some medical terminology and sciencey type stuff, but it was fascinating. Seriously, a great read.

The Cafe by the Sea by Jenny Colgan - I'll probably read her for a bit, until I get tired of her. This one was really good too - the setting was really unique and I loved the main character!

Reading This Week:

The Year of Living Danishly - That house even looks adorably happy!

Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe 

Posted Last Week:

No new book reviews 

Phoneless and Free (on my other blog - also talks about the Nature Fix)


Victoria, Supernatural, Riverdale, iZombie

How about you guys? What is going on in your corner of the world?


  1. Not having a phone I think can be simultaneously stressful and invigorating? Probably more invigorating the loner you go lol? We get SO dependent on them! And yes to the nice weather! It's about time... today was gorgeous!

    The Year of Living Danishly looks super interesting, I was reading a book not too long ago about Finland. And I'm still trying to get caught up on Riverdale...

    1. It really was! The longer I went, the nicer it was. :) I couldn't believe how much extra time it seemed I had. It was a weird side effect.

      I am so excited to read The Year of Living Danishly! I loved the book I recently read, There is no Such Thing as Cold Weather which was in Sweden. I love reading about other cultures. weird. I am loving the Cheryl storyline.

  2. I'm not addicted to my phone. I have a Tracphone that I mostly use as an alarm clock. Now take away my computer, and you will see a meltdown. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  3. I saw your pic of the vintage bike sale. They were so fun to look at. I try to stay off of my phone more and knit or sew instead.
    Yeah, I've got good kids who need an attitude adjustment once in a while, LOL.

  4. One of my reviewers really enjoys Jenny Colgan's books. Happy reading! Donna from Girl Who Reads

  5. I'm also on a Jenny Colgan kick right now. The Nature Fix looks good. Happy end of the month. Come see what I'm reading.


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
