It's Monday! What are you reading?

 It's Monday is a meme by Sheila of Book Journey. It's a fun way of sharing what we have been reading. It's also banned book week and since one of my books listed this week was banned I thought I would highlight the fact that Sheila is having a banned book giveaway. Two reasons to visit her blog!

This week I read;

 A Tiny Bit Marvellous by Dawn French - not much to the story until the end but it was so funny it really didn't matter.

 Skuldugger Pleasant: Death Bringer by Derek Landy - a little disappointed with the latest installment in this series. Still a fun read though.

 A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess - surprised by how much I loved it. A disturbing dystopian (and a banned book)

Just now I am reading;

Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn - recommended by another blogger. A fun and easy read so far.

 Making History by Stephen Fry - this is my book for on the bus. I am also reading this as books I should have read by now challenge. Bought this a good few years ago but never got round to reading.

Next I plan to read;

The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan - I read The Joy Luck Club after a holiday in San Francisco. I absolutely loved it but never got round to reading anything else by the author. When I saw this in a second hand book shop I decided I had to give it a go.

What have you been reading?


  1. You had a great week in reading! I haven't read any Amy Tan book yet - I need to read one of her books. Have a great week!

  2. Amy Tan is one of my favorites. Her books are so engrossing!

  3. I need to try Amy Tan.... both of these books by her sounds so good and I was just talking to someone about The Joy Luck Club the other day.

  4. A really need to read A Clockwork Orange. It's been on my list forever. I read Dawn French's autobiography and although I found parts of it funny wasn't really for me. But she was a good writer so interested to read a fiction book by her.

  5. I've heard a lot about Clockwork Orange, but haven't been able to read it because it sounds really graphic. I don't want to have nightmares!

    Booking It with Runner Sami

  6. I could never read Clockwork Orange because I still remember the movie and I was so disturbed by it I don't think I could get through the book. However, I have read the Amy Tan and thoroughly enjoyed it so I hope you will as well. Happy reading!
