It's Monday! What are you reading?

It's Monday, what are you reading? is now hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is a chance for us to share with other book bloggers what we have just finished reading, what we are currently reading and what we are reading next.

Just finished

The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
This was just as exciting as the first, and I will have a review soon.

Lilian's Story by Kate Grenville
I finished this book yesterday while I was sitting in the doctor's waiting room and sunk into a reverie thinking about it to the point where I almost missed my name being called out. This was a really interesting book and I can't wait to review it.

The Man with Two Left Feet by PG Wodehouse
I was reading this collection of short stories in ebook form and finished them yesterday as well. Here is a link to the review.

Currently Reading

A Case of Exploding Mangoes by Mohammed Hanif
I have wanted to read this ever since I saw the author do a reading from it at the Sydney Writers Festival last year, so it is fitting that I finally started reading it the week before this years Sydney Writers Festival.

Up Next

I only started reading my current read this morning, so it's a bit too soon to tell at this stage.


  1. I love the title, A Case of Exploding Mangoes!

  2. I really want to read the Stieg Larsson series. Glad you enjoyed it. Have a great week!

  3. The Girl Who Played with Fire is a book I really want to read! I am glad to see you enjoyed it. Have a wonderful week!

  4. Oh it is nice to see someone else who reads P.G. Wodehouse. I have almost the entire collection. Have a brilliant week reading. My Monday, if you get a chance, is here:

  5. I can't wait to read all three of the Larsson's books. I have heard such great things. They are on my summer list of reads. Look forward to your review. Have a great week.

  6. It's Monday!

    My What are you reading? is here.

    Happy Monday. I've had Stieg Larsson's books on my wishlist for awhile. Perhaps it's time to take the plunge. :)


  7. hiya Becky! I love the new format of your blog! The look and your button is way cool!

    btw, I have an award for you at my blog ~

  8. I love a book that's so absorbing that you tune out everything else, even in the doctor's waiting room. :-) I am looking forward to hearing more about Lilian's story. And I love the title A Case of Exploding Mangoes!

  9. Liked the Girl who played with fire
    and the third one even better, the Girl who kicked the hornet's nest, since it tied up all the loose ends. Can't wait for your reviews.


I love getting comments, so please don't hesitate to leave me one!
