It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

 This is a fun book meme by Sheila of Book Journey. It's a fantastic way for everyone to share their reading week.

This week I read just one book;

I Can See You by Karen Rose. An enjoyable light read which was just what I was needing. My review also got a lovely comment from the author.

Just now I am reading;

She-Wolves by Helen Castor. A bit of non-fiction for a change. Has been a while since I read any history and I am enjoying this. Learning lots about strong women I knew little about. I'm about 1/3 of the way through.

Not sure what I plan to read next. I am sure I will get onto another book this week. Whilst I was slow with She-Wolves at the start my reading sped up over the weekend. Plus I am on to Eleanor of Aquitaine and I am very much enjoying that. I do know I will probably pick a classic. It's between "Invisible Cities" by Italo Calvino, "The Bell" by Iris Murdoch and "The Leopard" by Tomasi di Lampedusa. The last two have been recommended by the same friend. If I am honest though I am more for the Calvino just now. It looks like it will be such a lovely book.

How has your reading week been? Any of you looking forward to getting started on a particular book?

    New Follower! Come see my Monday! And have a GREAT week!

  6. Most my post this past week has been non-fiction. I really need to make time to read more of it (or look at it in the case of coffeetable books).

  7. Winda, sorry I could find your blog. My twitter account is also secured now so tweeting about you wouldn't do you much good I'm afraid. And I restrict facebook adds to people I know. If I am honest fashion isn't really my thing. Good luck though and thanks for dropping by.

    Becca, She-Wolves is fantastic. I think I have read more non fiction in the past year than I have in my entire reading life. There are so many good ones out there just now.

    Laurel, it is good. Definitely one for when you just need to chill out (providing you like crime of course).

    Crystal, I have had it on my tr list since it first came out last year. I am about half way through now and I can already say it's one of my favourite history books. So informative and easy to read.

    Niina, thanks for following. I will be sure to follow you back. She Wolves is fantastic. Definitely highly recommend it if you like history.

    Ellie, will have to drop by and see your non fiction. I know the feeling. So many good non fiction books out there just now. I do like a good coffeetable book too.

  8. I Can See You sounds like a good read. I hope you enjoy reading She Wolves this week
