This is a book meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. It's a fantastic way for everyone to share their reading week.
I finally admitted it last week that the last few months I sort of lost my reading mojo. I had a book pile there that I was less than excited about and I was at a loss for what to read next. Last week I think I found my mojo again and I actually managed to finish two books. The last few days I have also been going round book blogs more than I have the last two months. Mainly getting ideas for future reads but also to see what everyone else was up to. I left a few comments and was sad to see that a few blogs that I enjoyed I have disappeared. That's the way blogging life goes mind you. Hopefully though I will keep up with the momentum as going round the blogs I realised I missed talking with people about books.
Last week I read;
Spring Snow by Yukio Mishima. This is the first book in a tetraology. A beautifully written Japanese classic. Once again recommended by my classic loving friend.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. This saw me finally with a book I couldn't leave alone. Read it in two days. Great read.
Just now I am reading;
The Collected Stories - Lorrie Moore. It's actually a few of her collections in one book. Have been wanting to read this for years and finally got myself a copy (Glasgow library didn't stock it). Really enjoying it so far. Lots of unique characters in there.
Next I plan to read;
Did You Miss Me? - Karen Rose. Every time I buy a book by this author it's always on a whim. This one is no exception. Thought it would be good to mix series with light as I don't want this reading fervor to go away.
What have you all been reading?
I'm glad your mojo came back! Visting blogs is what keeps me excited about reading!ReplyDelete
Have a great reading week!

I really need to read Gone Girl soon! I know what you mean about blogs disappearing, I am missing some old friends.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed Moore's Gate at the Top of the Stairs, but I haven't read any of her stories. I'm glad you are back into the swing of reading and that you read a lot of great books soon!ReplyDelete
Yay for the return of your reading mojo! I really need to read Gone Girl soon. I've heard so many good things about it. Maybe in the next few books... Enjoy your week!ReplyDelete
