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

A Room with a View by EM Forster

I listened to this one on audiobook this week because my eyes were playing up again and I really enjoyed it. Althogh I have to admit that I found Lucy somewhat irritating. 

Indelible Ink by Fiona McGregor

I read this book for my monthly book club. The author will also be attending which is very exciting. I only wish that I enjoyed the book a little more.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

This is perhaps one of the most unique books I have ever read, both in terms of content and style.

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey

This book was an Australian book that I was very excited about reading, especially after I heard the publisher discussing it at the Sydney Writers Festival this year. It didn't disappoint me, I couldn't put it down. 

The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas

This is a very talked about book here in Australia, an now internationally given it has become one of the books on this years Man Booker Prize long list. I enjoyed it, but it was..... hmm. Its a bit hard to say. Stay tuned for the review.

Currently Reading

A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth

I will be starting this book now that my eyes are back on track. This is a massive challenge for me. It is the biggest book ever written in one volume in the English language, and believe me, it is massive. My edition comes in at 1474

Up Next

I suspect that A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth will take me at least 2 weeks to read, especially as I am going back to work this week and my reading time will again be limited to the train to and from work. So at this stage I will not be planning that far ahead. 

I hope that everyone else is enjoying their current reads!
