It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a meme by Sheila of Book Journey. It's a fun way of sharing the books we have read each week.
It's been a while since I have taken part in this. Just because I have usually had a 12hr shift on a Monday or been too busy. There is no point in going over everything I have read since the last time I took part so just thought I would start fresh.
This week I read;
London by Edward Rutherfurd. I have still to review it but this was a fantastic book. I have been reading this the last few weeks as it's quite a chunky at over 1300 pages.
Just now I am reading;
The Leopard by Tomasi Di Lampedusa. I was originally reading this alongside London but London took over. I am enjoying it though. It's a very different pace. I am reading this for the classics challenge.
Next I plan to read;
Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I will be reading this for the mixing it up challenge. It looks interesting so I am looking forward to it.
What have you been reading the weeks I have been AWOL?

Happy to see you back here! I've heard lots about London and it is a book that I should read (I love good nonfiction.)ReplyDelete
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? I hope you will stop by!
It's not nonfiction but it is a good chunky read if you like historical fiction. Starts back in the days of the Celts just as the Romans are about to invade.Delete
Oh, and thank you for the welcome back :DDelete
Ms. Peregrine's... is on my TBR mountain. I really need to get to it. I have heard that it is unusual. My Monday Report is here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I haven't heard of The Leopard, but it's a classic? Will keep an eye on your review. Have a good week!ReplyDelete
Yeah, it's an Italian classic which was translated in the 1960s. It's really about the formation of Italy and Sicily becoming a part of it. Probably not one of the better known classics mind you but a fantastic read.Delete
London looks like a great read. I look forward to reading your review. I hope you enjoy your new selections.ReplyDelete

London was fantastic. If you like historical fiction it is well worth reading.Delete
Miss Peregrine is fantastic but creepy - I loved it. I'm super ready for the sequel!ReplyDelete
Happy reading this week :)

I very much enjoyed it. When I picked it up I didn't realise that there was going to be a sequel. I probably wouldn't have done so if I did. Good thing then as I loved it and am looking forward to the next one.Delete
