It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a book meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. A fun way for everyone to share their reading week.
As predicted my reading slowed down. Not sure if it was more to do with savouring rather than being busy as my only book last week was a good one.
This week I read;
Dracula by Bram Stoker. I read this as part of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen challenge. This is one of my re-reads for the challenge. A good one too as I loved this back when I was a young teen. Despite the time between readings it was so familiar and welcoming. An odd way to describe a horror, I know.
I am now reading;
Dreamcatcher by Stephen King. After my indecision last week I decided to stick with the horror theme and read one of the books that has been sitting on my tbr shelf the longest. I think I have owned this since it came out in paperback which would be about 2001/02. I was initially going to go with one of the few YA that survived my book cull but the one I had my heart set on turned out to be book 3 (don't you hate it when that happens?). I am about 1/3 of the way through and enjoying it so far. I don't know why I left it so long since I have read a fair number of King books in that period.
Next I plan to read;
The Book of Dave by Will Self. This was one of my possibles from last week and someone said I should go with this as it's amazing. By the time I saw the comment though I had already started Dreamcatcher. So I will read it after that. Looking forward to it as I have heard lots of good things.
I have read this months quota of challenge reads so I am now working my way through some of my tbr. I did go book shopping the other day though so will post an update on that later in the week (not as big a spree as January).
