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

Drop by tomorrow morning for my review of We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver.

I recently finished an Australian crime novel entitled An Iron Rose by Peter Temple, an author who recently won The Miles Franklin Literary Award. Have a read of my review if you get the chance, it was a great book.

I also finally finished the ebook I was reading, Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott (thank goodness!) and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornett's Nest by Stieg Larsson. I will have reviews of these two books soon I hope.

Currently Reading

I am currently reading a very new Australian debut novel by author Tess Evans, entitled The Book of Lost Threads. I only started it this morning so I don't have an opinion of it yet.

I am also reading Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka when I get a chance, and I started Therese Raquin on ebook, so it will take me awhile to get through that.

Up Next

No idea t this stage. I did recently purchase The Passage by Justin Cronin, thought I might fit that in before all the hype takes off. I also want to read The Brief and Wondrous life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz with is another new addition to my bookshelf.... but who knows!

  6. I stalled out on Oscar Wao, but I'm hoping a break from it is all that I need.

    Happy reading!

  8. I'm looking forward to your review of We Need to Talk About Kevin -- I just picked it up and I'm hoping to convince my book group to select it for our next read.

    I'm in a classics book group as well and we will be reading The Metamorphosis later this year -- let us know how you like it.
