It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (June 1)

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly post to share what you recently finished reading, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan on reading next. This is a terrific meme that allows you to meet fellow bookworms and find new books to add to your ever-growing reading wish list.
This weekly post is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.

I did it! I switched to the block format on WordPress and lived to tell about it. I was really nervous to make the switch and to my surprise it wasn’t as bad as I had feared it would be!

What I Read Last Week…

The Last Train to Key West by Chanel Cleeton
Look for my review of this one later this week.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
I will be reviewing this one as well later this week!

Evil Games (D.I. Kim Stone, #2) by Angela Marsons
I loved getting reacquainted with D.I. Kim Stone! My break between book one and book two was far too long. This book did a great job of letting us into her private life a bit more in a very creative way! We learn more about her childhood and why she puts up the walls she does, all while weaving in a fantastic crime or two to solve. I cannot wait to get started with book three!!

Currently Reading…

What You Wish For by Katherine Center
Starting this one today! This is book one of my 20 Books of Summer!!

Currently Listening To…

Fair Warning (Jack McEvoy, #3) by Michael Connelly

Up Next…

The Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis

Thank you for visiting and happy reading!

  1. I’m dreading the time it will take me to publish my first post using the block editor 😩
    I hope you enjoy the Katherine Center! Some of the plot is a bit far fetched 🙄but I still enjoyed it!
    Starting Last Train!

    1. It’s really not as bad as I expected. I was doing some copy, paste and editing my posts. Now with this new editor I’m starting from scratch so it is more time consuming at the moment. If you need any help let me know! 😊

      1. Thanks! Usually I work from a template or from a copy so I hope I can still do that! Were you automatically put into the block editor today or did you just opt to do it? I wrote a post today and didn’t see any notification about block editor so I just did what I usually do. I’m wondering if going back to update posts will require you to change it all to block editor or if we can update old posts in the classic in which they were created??

        1. I made the decision to switch knowing it was coming. Once I made the switch I copied and pasted an old post into the block format to see if I could just manipulate it. I could, but it was more difficult. For one I could not figure out how to change the photo. Rather than spending a ton of time forcing the old format in the new format I decided to just embrace it and am using this time to make some chances to my blog and freshen things up a bit.

          I discovered that if I make a paragraph block I can copy and paste from post that I have already done. This helps a lot! There was not nearly the amount of work I was expecting because I can reuse my old text.

          It really isn’t as bad as it seems, just different. You make a block to insert an image, a heading, a paragraph and so on. Within those blocks you can add color, underline, italicize, resize pictures and a whole lot more.

  2. Oooh! You got Fair Warning early! I’m waiting for the audio to come in for me through the library’s downloadable ebook service. We were supposed to read What You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center for our June book club selection, but had to change it because it wasn’t available through Hoopla from the library.
