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.

Something very very exciting - I have FINALLY finished by review of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It took me a long time to getting around to writing this review, simply because the book was so amazing I wasn't convinced that I was skilled enough to write a review of it. But I am very happy with the review and I hope that you all have a read of it.. and the book!

Just Finished

The Call of the Wild by Jack London
I decided to read this one on ebook after I read a review of it on A Literary Odyssey and I wasn't disappointed. It was a very sweet story that had be trying to read it from beginning to end.

Currently Reading

The Timeless Land by Eleanor Dark
I am still reading the same book that I was reading last week. In fact, I have only got through half of it. This is one of those true Chunksters that you really have to put time into reading, but it is totally worth it.

Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott
You have probably seem me talk about this a few times now, but it really is one those very unique stories that I can't stop marvelling at as I read it.

Up Next

I am actually going into hospital this afternoon for some surgery and I am not sure in what condition I will be in afterwards. I have ordered an audio book from the library which I can collect on Wednesday, and it might be that I will have to focus on listening to that for a little while? I will just be playing it by ear.
