It's Monday! What are you reading?

Just Finished

I have got in heaps of reading recently being off work. As you can see I have a lot of reviews to get working on and I hope that I will have them ready as soon as I can.

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton


This was a good fun read and I really enjoyed it, but it doesn't compare to the movie. It was very exciting and I hope that you have time to read my review of it. 

84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff

French Fried by Chris Dolley

Lovesong by Alex Miller

Clandestine in Chile: The Adventures of Miguel Littin by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling

A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

Currently Reading

The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas

 I am really enjoying this book, but it is rather dark in it's content and tone. 

Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnett (ebook)

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein (audiobook)

Up Next

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey - another new Australian novel

I can't wait to see what everyone else is reading at the moment!


  1. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on these!! 84 Charing Cross Road looks absolutely charming!!

  2. I own 84 Charing Cross Road, but haven't read it yet. I have heard such good things about it though.

    I am torn on whether I want to read The Slap or not. People seem to either really, really like it, or really, really not like it.

  3. I've never read Little Lord Fauntleroy. Will be interested to know what you think of it. I liked The Secret Garden and A Little Princess.

  4. Quite an eclectic range of titles. Enjoy!

  5. Woah, I thought I was having a good week by finishing off three books, but you miss, are a powerhouse in comparison!

    I've also been thinking of finally reading The Slap, have loved everything else of Tsiolkas' that I've read before.

  6. I've got Clandestine in Chile sitting here waiting to be read, and I think I may wedge it in among the Booker list books this month.

    I've got a review of The Slap on my blog if you're at all interested.

    have a great week (but I'm sure I'll catch up with you before next Monday!)

  7. As always I am insanely jealous of your reading speed.

    I'm still reading Arundhati Roy's God of Small Things. The writing is terrific but it's going rather slowly for some reason.

    Hope you're back to perfect after the surgery.

  8. I'm reading "The Curse of Lono" by Hunter S. Thompson. I have one of the large illustrated versions by Taschen (out of print) and each illustration by Ralph Steadman is a work of art.

    Check out the opening line from Friday... it's an interesting one.

  9. You sure have a diverse selection of books there...thanks for stopping by my blog!! Have a great day...

  10. I have The Slap requested at the library. Supposed to be really good! Hope you enjoy it.

  11. 84 looks interesting... actually you have quite a few here that i would like to read. Oh and Harry Potter? Never gets old... never. :D

    Have a super week!

  12. My book group read The Slap - it was actually our inaugural book! Provoked great discussion. While none of us "enjoyed" it as such, we were all glad we read it. Very confronting. My Monday is here

  13. I had big issues with 'The Slap'. It made me angry. Looking forward to reading your review!

  14. A wonderful variety of titles - must be hard to choose what next.

    Happy reading!

  15. Wow what a week you had and an interesting line-up of books. What did you think of French Fried?
    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  16. Looking forward to your thoughts on a lot of the books. However, glad you read Little Lord Fauntleroy. Will be keeping an eye out on your thoughts on the book.

    I'm struggling with Master and Margarita. Why oh why did I pick it up?

  17. What an excellent selection of books! I'm two days late in making the rounds. Here's what I'm reading this week.


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