It’s Monday! What are you Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, a place to share and discuss what we’ve read in the past week and what we’re in the middle of or are planning to read this week.
What I read last week
Last week I participated in two great Christmas-themed blog tours:
You Make it Feel Like Christmas by Louise Marley:
and The Ticklemore Christmas Toy Shop by Liz Davies, a sweet and touching story of two slightly eccentric octogenarians Hattie and Alfred:
From the book blurb:
Rose Keller and Tate Russo have been climbing for years, training in harsh weather and traveling all over the world. The goal that kept them going: summiting Mount Everest, the highest point on earth. Accompanied by Tate’s dad, the two will finally make the ultimate climb at the end of their senior year. But neither Rose nor Tate are fully in the game—not only is there a simmering romance between them, but Rose can’t get her mind off her mother’s illness, while Tate constantly fails to live up to his ambitious father’s standards.
Everyone on their expedition has something to prove, it seems. And not everyone is making the best decisions while short on oxygen and physically and mentally exhausted. The farther up the mountain they go, the more their climbing plans unravel and the more isolated each team member becomes. Rose and Tate will have to dig deep within themselves to determine what—or who—they value above all else.
What I am planning to read this week:
Last week I planned to read two thrillers, both parts of long-running series with strong female leads:
Hopefully, this week I will read at least one of them, as I know they are bound to be absolutely gripping. Alternatively, I have an audiobook which is supposed to be a sweet, clean and wholesome romantic story, Be My Reason by Brooklyn Taylor.
How did your last week go and what are you reading this week?
