It's Monday! What are you reading?

What are you reading Monday  is hosted by Shelia over at Book Journey. Head over and check out what others are reading!

It was before Christmas the last time I participated in this and I read a heap over the break. Unfortunately it has been a slow start to the year and I have yet to start and finish a book in 2011.

What I finished since I last participated.

At Home - Bill Bryson
Trouble all the Way - Sonya Hartnett
Jessie Mei Mei - Sharon Guest and Stuart Neal
The Burning Bridge - John Flanagan
The Complete Peanuts 1953 - 1954 - Charles M Schulz
Ten Thousand Sorrows - Elizabeth Kim
World of Chickens - Nick Earls

What I am reading now?

The Well of Ascension - Brandon Sanderson

This is the second book in the Mistborn Series. I'm enjoying and it's not hard to read so I'm not sure why it's taken me so long! Hopefully it doesn't set the tone for the rest of the year. I should finish it today.

In The Winter Dark - Tim Winton
I'm listening to this in the car. Once again, finding Winton read aloud is magical.

What's next?

The Forgotten Garden - Kate Morton
This will be read for my January Book Group.

So what are you reading?


  1. As you discovered, I too am reading The Forgotten Garden for book club in January! That is fantastic! We should do like a combo review of what our book clubs thought.

  2. I've heard good things about the Mistborn series, I might have to check it out! Hope you have a great week :)

  3. My sister read The Forgotten Garden a couple of months ago. I looked at it longingly and plan to borrow it from her soon.

  6. ooh, I never heard of these books before. I am going to check Jessie Mei Mei - Sharon Guest and Stuart Neal out, just because the title really stands out and I want to know what's it about. Enjoy the books you want to read this week!

  7. This is not the first time I've come across The Well of Ascension but I've yet to pick it up because it just wasn't interesting enough. But maybe I will now :-)

  8. Great Reading!!
