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!

Seriously, I have become so slack with this!! Sorry, I will try to do better!

What I finished since I last participated.

The Well of Ascension - Brendan Sanderson 
The Forgotten Garden - Kate Morton
Loving Richard Feynman - Penny Tangey
Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead - Frank Meeink

What I am reading now?

A Pale View of Hills - Kazuo Ishiguro

I loved Never Let Me Go, so I added Ishiguro to my list of authors to read the backlist of.

In The Winter Dark - Tim Winton

I'm still listening to this in the car, which I can only do when I am alone. With school holidays over, (which means I don't have the kids in the car ALL the time!) I'm hoping to get through more of this.

Teen Ink: Written in the Dirt - Fiction by Teens

I'm persevering with this because every now and then I come across a gem in it. It currently lives in my handbag so only gets read on the ferry and during my breaks at work.

Other Stuff

I'm taking part in a Picture Book Challenge  so I have been review the picture books myself and my daughter have been reading at night. If you are interested, you can read the reviews at the links below.

Picture books 1-5
Picture books 6-10
Picture books 11-15.

What's Next?

Truly haven't thought about this! I've decided for the time being to alternate between what I own and what I've borrowed from the library. So whatever is next, it will come from my own collection.

So, what are you reading? Leave me a link, I'd love to know!


  1. Happy Monday!
    I have The Forgotten Garden on my shelf.
    I'm reading The Body Finder and Room.

    I see you're doing the ebook challenge! Me too!

  2. I'm also a bit stumped about what to read next, whether to read a challenge book or something that's calling out to me. Oh well, I guess the choice will come when it needs to be made. Here's my Monday.

  3. We just recently read The Forgotten Garden for book club and it was a great read to start out the year!

  4. I finished my Cybils reading and posted a lot of nonfiction reviews. Come see what I'm reading now.
