It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


This is a book meme by Sheila of Book Journey. A great way for everyone to share their reading week. I did actually manage to finish a book this wee. In fact two whole books.

This week I read;

Ghost Town by Rachel Caine. The 9th book in the Morganville series. The plot is a little bit on the ridiculous side but I am still enjoying them.


The Kraken Wakes by John Wyndham. I read this is my choice for the sci fi challenge. I absolutely loved it. A slow burner which was appropriate to the story. Love classic sci fi.

Just now I am reading;


Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. I am reading this for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen challenge. The character this time is Captain Nimo. I'm about half way through and loving it although not quite as good as Around the World in 80 Days.


The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. I know, I am still reading this. I have decided just to pick it up when the mood takes me as I can't seem to force myself. That's not to say I'm not enjoying it, I am. It's just one that I am plodding along with. I did manage to read quite a bit more of it this week than the previous week. I would say I am about 1/3 of the way through.

Next I plan to read;


Eleanor of Aquitaine by Alison Weir. This is for the Mixing it up challenge under the history category. Looking forward to this as I have been wanting to read more on this historical character since reading She-Wolves.

What are you reading this week? Any of you have a chunkster on the go like me and reading other books in between?

    1. Good luck. I am hoping to finish mine too but as I am nowhere near the mid point I'm not holding out for it.

  4. You've got some great classics there! I'd like to read The Three Musketeers some time. I read a children's version when I was young, but never the real thing.
