It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 19/12/16


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Date .This meme is a great opportunity for book bloggers to showcase their ‘book-ish’ habits for the week. It is a good forum to share books read in the past week, current reads and upcoming reads. It is also a fantastic way to connect with fellow bookworms and add some books to your reading wishlist. Thanks for hosting Book Date!

The holidays have finally arrived for Mrs B’s household and I couldn’t be more relieved! I’ve already indulged in some binge reading and binge TV time (Netflix – Outlander). It has been nice to sit down and relax as well as catch up with friends this week. I hope you are all winding down as the Christmas holiday break makes its appearance.

Onto my reading wrap up for the past week. My reading really picked up this week and I finished four books.I reviewed one on my blog and the others on Goodreads with a star rating only, as I consider these books holiday reads. On the reviewing front, I published two reviews. If you wish to catch up on these reviews I’ll leave the links below.

The Florentine Bridge by Vanessa Carnevale (5 stars)

Becoming Aurora by Elizabeth Kasmer (4 stars)

    1. Thanks for stopping by Laura. The Florentine Bridge is the very best of the bunch here, highly recommended. One Summer in Venice was a nice and gentle read. The Girl From Venice didn’t really work for me.

      Wishing you a lovely week.


  1. Wow 4 books! Great week. I’m so looking forward to the Christmas break- it will be nice to sit back and relax a bit. I’m hoping to binge read and binge watch a bit over the holidays!

    Hope you have a great week and happy holidays!

    1. Thanks for stopping past – I do hope you get to read The Girl From Venice. It didn’t really work for me but I would be interested in your take on the book. Stopping by your post now… have a lovely week!
