It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a book meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Great way for everyone to share their reading week.
Once again it has been a while since I have taken part. Mainly because the last few weeks I have had a shift on a Monday. I'm also a wee bit behind on my blogging. Thanks to four mini reviews today though I am slowly catching up. I'm only going to post about the one week as it would take too long to add them all up since the last time I took part.
Last week I read;
Books to Die For by John Connolly. I had been reading this on and off for the past month or so. It's a hefty paperback so I only read it at home. Worth taking my time over though and now that I have finished I want my own copy (borrowed this from the library).
11.22.63 by Stephen King. I started this as a Halloween read and just finished it last week. Very much enjoyed it. I don't think it quite stands up to all the raving there has been about it but still one of the better recent King books.
The Return of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle. I read this as this months classic choice. I decided to go with something I knew I would love. I wasn't disappointed. I love Sherlock.
Just now I am reading;
1Q84 book 3 by Haruki Murakami. It's been about a year since I read book 1 and 2. Thankfully the story has come back to me. Bit of a slow start but once again it picks up as it goes on. Almost finished it now.
Next I plan to read;
Ringworld by Larry Niven. This is my choice for the sci fi challenge. I went to the library to pick it out not really knowing what I wanted. I decided on this as it's one of those classic sci fi that people seem to rave about. Looking forward to it.
If I get finished with those I will probably move on to the last two Sherlock Holmes books. Will be sad to finish the series but I bet I will re-read them at some point.

I really need to read some Sherlock Holmes one of these days. Hope you enjoy Ringworld!ReplyDelete
I love Sherlock Holmes. So easy to read too. Especially the short stories. Perfect when you don't have enough time to devote to a book.Delete
Looks like you've been reading some really interesting books. I just finished up 11/22/63 too and really enjoyed it - but like you, I didn't think it was 100% fantastic.ReplyDelete
Yeah, it dragged a tiny wee bit in places I thought. Still superior to Under the Dome.Delete
Ringworld has been on my TBR list forever. I love your eclectic reading.ReplyDelete
Thank you. It helps that the remainder of my TBR pile seems to be a mix of everything. Have to be honest, I am not really loving Ringworld. Hoping it will get better though.Delete
I need to pin a few of these cvers onto my red & grey Pinterest board!ReplyDelete
hee hee, I did think of your post when I finished this one.Delete
