It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a meme by Sheila of Book Journey. A great way for everyone to share their reading week.
I've had a busy but great week. Spoiled rotten by friends over the weekend and I have finished more than one book. I'm still up to date with my reviews and I finished a 2012 challenge. All in all I can't complain.
This week I read;
The Sea, The Sea by Iris Murdoch. Yep, I FINALLY finished it. That was a bit of a slog. Never been so pleased to finish a book and yet I couldn't completely give up on it.
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle. From a character I hated to a character I love. It was also the last book in the League of Extraordinary Gentleman Challenge. So that's one challenge finished already.
Just now I'm reading;
The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. Not sure what to make of it as yet even though I am half way through. It is growing on me but I'm not sure I like the style.
Next I plan to read;
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain. I'll be reading this for the classics challenge. I know I've already read a Twain for this but this will be my first Twain grown ups book. Looking forward to some humour.
Hope everyone's week has been as good as min.
