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.


  1. I'm very impressed. I've never tried The Sea, The Sea and I've never read any Faulkner! Good for you.

    Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? I hope you will stop by!

    1. Thank you. I liked The Bell by Iris Murdoch so assumed I would like The Sea, The Sea. Goes to show you.

      I've seen other classics fans read Faulkner so thought I would give him a go. Proving interesting so far.

  2. Great selection of books. My favorite book this week was Dr. Seuss: The Cat Behind the Hat by Caroline W. Smith. Please come see what I'm reading now.
