It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. It's a fun way for everyone to share their reading week. I'm going to do two weeks in one as I got distracted last week.
The last fortnight I have read;
The Leopard by Tomasi Di Lampedusa. An Italian classic which I read for the classics challenge. I loved it. It had such a sad atmosphere.
Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I read this for the Mixing It Up challenge. I very much enjoyed it. Been a long time since I came across a YA this good.
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. I read this for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen challenge. This was my re-read. I liked it better this time round than I did the first time.
Just now I am reading;
Century Rain by Alastair Reynolds. This is my choice for the sci fi challenge. I am enjoying it but have been slow in reading it as I have been distracted by other things (such as crafting).
Next I plan to read;
Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman. I picked this up in the library over the weekend. I read a couple of pages and I think I will very much enjoy it. Looking forward to it. Plus it's not for any challenges.
What abou you? What have you been reading the last few weeks?
