It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a book meme by Sheila of Book Journey. A great way for everyone to share their reading week.
Last week I handed in my last essay for the semester. I expected to get more reading done at the end of the week but that didn't really happen. Fingers crossed this week as I am back on the wards next week for semester 3. I'm excited about that mind you but last time I barely read anything I was so tired. I don't expect it to be much different this time.
This week I read;
Revenge of the Tide by Elizabeth Haynes. Very disappointed with this book. The more I read the more I hated the character.
Just now I am reading;
Possession by A. S. Byatt. A bit of a slow start but really getting into the story and the mystery now. To be fair I hadn't read much of it until last night which has more to do with the slow start than the book.
The Granta Book of the American Short Story Vol2 edited by Richard Ford. I have read a few of the stories now although I am only a small part of the way through the book. I am liking the change in pace from novel to short story. Nothing has really stood out yet but I have enjoyed what I have read.
Next I plan to read;
Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. This is for the classics challenge. I am looking forward to this as this will be my first book by Woolf. And yes, this is yet another vintage cover. Look how pretty!
Later on tonight I will do my month round up. Had quite a good reading month this time. Anyone trying anything new this week?
