It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It has been a while again since I have taken part and this is my first of the New Year. Hopefully I will manage it more often. This is a book meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. A great way for people to share their reading week.

This week I read;

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. Some title and some book. We are only a few weeks in but I think I can safely say this will be a favourite of 2013.

Just now I am reading;

The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber. I am working my way through my tbr pile just now and all I have left are mainly chunkies. This is one of them. An interesting start. I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.

I am not planning anything else for this week. My reading has slowed down and this book is over 800 pages. I will probably still be reading it next week.

How did everyone else get on? Any firm favourites already?


  1. Both your books look really good and I'd like to give both a try. I have just finished reading The First Last Kiss by Ali Harris and I think it could also be my fave of 2013!

    Have a great week.

    1. I haven't heard of that one. Will have to look into it. Although it does sound like a romance which I tend to avoid at all costs.

  2. I must be off to add Hundred-Year-Old Man to my TBR. It looks like my kind of read.

    Here’s my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? I'd love to have you stop by!

    1. It was a fantastic read. Very dry humour with an almost Forrest Gump type story line.

  3. The Crimson Petal and the White looks great I had to add it to my TBR. Hope you enjoy it.

  4. I absolutely loved The 100 Year Old Man :) It was so much fun!

    Have a great week of reading!!
