#IMWAYR ~ 4/6/20

Alison here ~

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are 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 your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

I am definitely in a reading slump for me. I have a ton of books going, and I’m just struggling getting into most of them. I did at least finish The Wall of Winnipeg. It was a longish read and I honestly just wish it was even longer because I so enjoyed it! I am enjoying A Man Called Ove, but I’m reading it with a group, so I’m staying on their pace. And I’m almost finished with The Mapmaker’s Apprentice. At this point, though, I might just end up scrapping my whole monthly TBR and just rereading some of my faves. Maybe???






Current physical copy ~ All the Stars and Teeth
Current e-read ~ The Ten Thousand Doors of January / Butterface
Current audiobook ~ The Mapmaker’s Apprentice
Current Group Read ~ A Man Called Ove / The Screwtape Letters


I just really don’t know…


Happy Reading,

  1. I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed Wall of Winnipeg and Me! It’s such a wonderful read and is definitely one of my favourite Zapata books 😍 Zapata’s books are actually all soo long but I usually end up reading them in 1-2 days because I just can’t put them down! I hope you find something that will pull you out of your slump, Ali! It’s a mood for sure…


    • Thanks! And yes, that was the case for me. I stayed up all night reading the book because I just couldn’t put it down. I then slept abt 2 1/2 hrs only to wake up dying to know where it went and got right back to it. It was such a relief, too, since so many books just aren’t cutting it for me right now.


  2. Nooo! Not a reading slump! Maybe it is time to scrap the TBR and sink into something tried and true. A favorite that might get you back into your reading groove. And as a side note: I am determined to finally read something by Zapata this year.


    • Yes, I just checked out The Kiss Quotient from the library to reread it. I think it’ll help. I definitely recommend Zapata! I loved this one and Lingus. I’ll definitely be reading more from her!!
