It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a book meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. It's a fun way for readers to share their reading week.
I have been slow in reading only to do almost nothing but read over the weekend. I have been very lazy in my book reviews though and done none so have a little bit of catching up to do this week.
This week I read;
Century Rain by Alastair Reynolds. I read this as my choice for the sci fi challenge. Could have been a good book but far to much going on.
Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman. Found the child narrator to be irritating at first. Also a little repetitive but in the end I liked it.
Snowdrops by A. D. Miller. Was disappointed with this one. Painted a very bleak picture of Russia and in the end the plot was boring and obvious.
Just now I am reading;
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthrone. I am reading this for the classics challenge. I have only just started it but I am enjoying it so far.
Next I plan to read;
The Sorcerer's Treason by Sarah Zettel. I am reading this for the mixing it up challenge. It's for the sci fi/fantasy category. A friend bought this for me years ago which is why I decided to pick it up for this rather than my usual sci fi. It's about time I read it.
Honestly, I spent most of my weekend reading. Anyone else have a reading weekend or have you been glued to the olympics?
