This is a book meme by Sheila of Book Journey. It's a fun way for everyone to share their reading week.
I honestly can't believe it is February already. Doesn't seem so long ago since we were all celebrating Christmas. It's started out a good month though. I finished a challenge and I am still keeping up with the others. Had a good week reading wise too and there were a few posts other than book reviews.
This week I read;
Shakespeare by Bill Bryson. The last book I read for the Shakespeare Month Challenge. I loved this book. Quite a good one for people like me who had little knowledge of the Bard himself.
The Bell by Iris Murdoch. I read this for the classics challenge and have already completed this months prompt. Had been looking forward to this as a friend recommended it and she has never steered me wrong yet. A fantastic read with multi-faceted characters.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick. I read this as part of the sci fi challenge. A fantastic sci fi classic. Just sorry it took me so long to get round to read it.
The Woods by Harlan Coben. To be honest I am mixed about this one. So much so that I have been wondering whether or not to change it's rating on Goodreads from a 3 to a 2. Hopefully I will make up my mind and review it later today.
Just now I am reading;
Dracula by Bram Stoker. This is part of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen challenge. This is a re-read for me so I already know I love it. Have read the first part where Jonathan Harker meets the creepy Dracula.
Next I plan to read;
To be honest I am completely undecided. I feel I should take a break from classics and try to get through some of the books that have been lying there longer. I tried to do that with The Woods though and it didn't go well. So do I read the other two Kathy Reich's that I have sitting there? Or do I read one of the contemporary fiction I have lying around? The Book of Dave has been eyeing me up but then so has Michael Chabon and Doris Lessing. Then there is that one classic that has been sitting since August, the next Sherlock Holmes. I guess for once I will wait to see what I feel like when I finish Dracula.
