It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

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

The weather got so much nicer midweek!! We have had some quality pool time and outside time, it has been lovely. This week I have lots of fun things planned for our family - Wyatt and I are going to a Jurassic Wonders event for toddlers Monday morning, then the two of us are hitting our hometown art fair Wednesday morning. Then Thursday, Billy and I are having date night at the art fair - we are looking forward to a night out together! We have the myriad not fun stuff to do too, but ugh, let's not even think about that stuff. Lol. 

** I had to stop midpost because my friend posted that a Snowy Owl is hanging out at our police station. I had to go see, because it's July! Snowy's don't come down this far until midwinter usually. We found the owl on top of the station, and yep, it is definitely a snowy! I am worried about it - I did let a park ranger friend know about it, in case it needs help. It's in the wrong place and we are having such hot days. It was the first one I ever saw! 

Read Last Week:


Return to Tradd Street - I love Karen White's work. She is definitely a go-to for me

Anne of Green Gables - So, this was my first time reading Anne. And I think I am just too old maybe to appreciate this book, or I have missed my opportunity for it, because I just didn't really like it. :( Although, I do want to visit PEI now. I was more intrigued by the setting. 

Reading This Week:

I've got a few things going on..


I am reading Upstream as part of an online nature book club I am a part of. I just picked up, and I am looking forward to reading it. :) 


Series of Unfortunate Events, Churchill's Recruits (this was excellent!), and since it is July, the Tour de France! We are such big fans of the tour! 

How about you all? What is going on in your world?


  1. I'm going to be honest. while I loved Anne of Green Gables, it wasn't my favorite of the series (that would be, I think, Anne of the Island). If you are interested, there are many television adaptations, but there are 2 I would recommend. One is about 30 years old--but it ages well--and it stars Meghan Fellows. They actually did 3 series, the first is Anne of Green Gables, the second is a combo of Anne of Avonlea, Anne of Windy Poplars, and Anne of the Island. The third is terrible, don't watch it.

    The other one is Anne with an E--the second season just dropped on Netflix. It is definitely more "inspired by" AoGG than "based on" AoGG and it is edgier, but I actually really enjoyed the first season and am working my way through the second now.

  2. Wow a snowy owl? That's kinda neat! I would have went and seen it too, how cool!

    How about this hot weather huh? Hope you have a great week- the Jurassic Wonders event sounds fun.

    All the Little Lights looks good, and I've always been curious about the Penderwicks!

  3. I love that Anne cover. Have you watched that new mini series? I can't quite bring myself to as I had loved the Canadian version. Ooh, a snowy owl? How cool! Hedwig.


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.
