It's Monday! What are you reading?
16 August 2010
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.
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
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.
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
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!
