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

Click here to read my review of Flatland by Edwin A Abbott, a science fiction novella from the late 19th Century; something very different from what you would normally read about!

I recently finished The Book of Lost Threads by Tess Evans, which was a really sweet (if simple) book that I enjoyed a lot.

I also finished Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, which was pretty sad.

Currently Reading

The Passage by Justin Cronin
I was really enjoying this. It was so tense and exciting and scary. Lots of blood that's for sure. But then it sort of did this entire flip and it felt like it became a whole new genre. It has taken me awhile to get back into it after that, but I am enjoying again, even if I am not quite as excited by it anymore

Up Next

Not sure at this stage. The Passage is so thick I will still be reading it for awhile!

  4. The Passage sounds familiar...ugh, lots of blood. That's quite a turnoff. :) But if it's an exciting thriller, I'll look out for it.

  5. I am listening to The Passage on Audio and it is 35 + hours.... I am nervous that it is going to come to a point where I may not like it and I will have invested all those hours.... so fay I am hanging in there and like the Amy story line... I am about 8 hours in.

  6. Sheila - I like the Amy storyline too... stick in there if you feel it disappear, it might come back
    ;-)

    Josette - it is an exciting thriller, but it is full of blood. It has become a bit too fantasy for my tastes but it is still very tense!

  13. Flatland AND Kafka in the same week! You've been very busy. I actually loved Flatland, by the way -- I didn't realize people still read that book!

    Have a lovely reading week, Becky!

  14. Good luck with The Passage! I'm not into all the vampire lit lately, so it won't be one I pick up.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.
    Have a great reading week.

  16. Oh no! I was holding you up as my role-model for The Passage. I'll still probably read it, but it's been moved down on the priority list.

    I found and picked up a copy of Peter Temple's Truth at the library, based on your post about it. I'll let you know how I like it.

    Enjoy your week.

  18. I have yet to read The Metamorphosis -- I've always been intimidated by Kafka. Lately, though, I've been feeling I want to give it a go.

    The Passage sounds like a page turner!

  19. I haven't read any of these books, but they sounds good! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  20. Thanks for dropping by everyone.

    The Passage isn't your normal vampire book Gerbera Daisy Mum, so don't let that put you off. I don't read those types of books either but this is good.

    I spoke too soon yesterday, the book just got really good again! Suzanne, don't bump it down your list just yet :)

    I didn't enjoy Flatland, but yes people still read it!

    I was always a bit nervous about reading Kafka, thinking he would be really challenging. But the Metamorphosis was a really easy read and I recommend it

    Happy Reading!

  22. "The Passage" was pretty good ... but it isn't something you read in a few days ... unless all you do is read it and read it and read it and read it! Enjoy!

  23. Hi Page Turner - The Passage sounds like a bit of a challenge. The Book of Lost Threads sounded interesting.
    Hope you had a great week.
