It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a book meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. A fun way for everyone to share their reading week.
Another good week books wise. I managed another two whole books which puts me two books ahead of this years monthly best (so far). Not only that I managed actual reviews this week. Not just one but three of them. I am still behind but I promise more for this week. I also paid a happy visit to the library. At the end of the week I picked up some books which I have still to share with you.
This week I read;
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky. I read this as quick as I could because I had skipped the rather large queue at the library (all explained in my library post - I'm not a bad person, honest!). I would probably have read that quick anyway. I have since watched the film AND picked up the soundtrack. A first for me I think and I loved all three.
Capital - John Lanchester. I still don't know what to make of this book but I did enjoy it. I am just not sure why because there were so many things about it which should have annoyed me.
Just now I am reading;
The Wind Through The Keyhole - Stephen King. Far too early to tell. To be honest I have read two pages of this. I stayed up later than I should have to finish Capital and have read two pages of this one. Enough to know I don't remember the references King gave for placing this book in the timeline. Not going to worry about it as he does say you don't need to have read the Dark Tower to enjoy this.
Next I plan to read;
The Sunset Limited - Cormac McCarthy. Picked this up on a whim at the library. Looks like it's going to be a little bit different so I'm looking forward to it.
In the past I have given shout outs to various blogs that I like. Usually in the context of a review or something related to what I am posting about. This time I am just going to say go along to Alex In Leeds. You won't be sorry.

The Sunset Limited looks interesting. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
It does. I am very curious about it. Have only read The Road which I loved so looking forward to it. You too.Delete
I read Perks for the first time in 2012 and I fell in love with it as well. :) I haven't seen the movie yet but I'm sure I will eventually.ReplyDelete
Have a great week of reading!
The film was good. I surprised myself by enjoying it even though I had just finished the book. You too.Delete
Glad to see you liked Perks. Definitely something I've been meaning to read and watch.ReplyDelete
My Monday Post :)
It was a great read. It honestly won't take you long to read if you decide to pick it up.Delete
Thanks for your book reviews and thoughts! Have a great week!ReplyDelete
I've heard mixed things about Capital. It's not at the top of my TBR list, but I'll still probably read it at some point. Happy Monday!ReplyDelete
Yeah, I hadn't heard much about it when I picked it up. I then made the mistake of looking to see what others thought before I read it. Shouldn't have done that but I liked it in the end.Delete
I am reading " Once She Knew."ReplyDelete
