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?

I've had Miss Peregrine's on my Kindle for ages and every time I see a review it reminds me of the fact. Sure I will get to it one day! You can check out my Monday hereReplyDelete
Not sure I would have got the same out of it if I had read it on the kindle. I'm not a fan of e-readers anyway but I think the images would lose something on the screen.Delete
I do recommend reading it though. It was a great book.
Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children is on my TBR. My favorite read last week was Amulet, Vol. 5: Prince of the Elves (audio) by Kazu Kibuishi. Please come see what else I'm reading.ReplyDelete
It's a great read. I haven't heard of the Prince of Elves.Delete
Yet another fab Vintage cover! Miss Peregrine is on the pile for when I have to start using up my holiday (still waiting to find out if we can rebook this year - otherwise I have 3 weeks spare to read).ReplyDelete
Not my favourite Vintage cover but it's still a good one. Where were you planning on going?Delete
I thought Pigeon English was a really beautiful book. It took me a while to get used to the language, but I'm so glad I stuck with it.ReplyDelete
I am very much looking forward to it. It's definitely going to be next.Delete
These books are all new to me. Looking forward to checking them out. :)ReplyDelete
Check out what I'm reading at Between the Bind.
You have a great variety of books listed, I love seeing that! You've reminded me to pick up Peculiar Children, thanks!ReplyDelete
Have a great week of reading!
