It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
It's Monday is a book meme by Sheila of Book Journey. It's a fun way of sharing your reading week and finding out what everyone else has planned.
A good week this time. I read;
An Idiot Abroad by Karl Pilkington. Not as funny as I was expecting it to be. I think Karl is probably funnier on screen when being ridiculed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. This was one of my Halloween reads. Sadly it failed to scare and impress. Loved the main character though so I really do wish I liked the book
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. Another Halloween read. This one was fantastic. I really can't recommend it enough. Extremely creepy and beautifully written.
Just now I am reading;
The Fall of the House of Usher and other Stories by Edgar Allan Poe. The last of the Halloween reads. This one is going to take me a while as I didn't quite realise just how many short stories are in this collection. Enjoying them so far though.
IQ84 book one and two by Haruki Murakami. Since my latest Halloween read is short stories I had decided to read other books at the same time. As the Halloween reads are all gone I could no longer hold this one at bay. I am only 30 pages in but have been quickly sucked into Murakami's world. Just like I always am. Already I am enjoying the characters.
I haven't planned what book is next although I have a fair idea what it will be. The short stories are going to take me a while and I really want to savour IQ84.
What have you been reading?
Edit: Almost forgot "Happy Halloween". Anyone got any fun plans? Fun costumes? I have none as I have exams and other things on this week so I have to live through all of you. ;)
