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!

Wow, two Mondays in a row, told you I would try to do better!

What I finished last week.

A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro (review to come)

Teen Ink: Written in the Dirt (review to come)

What am I reading now.

Stolen by Lucy Christopher

This is another book that was shortlisted for the 2010 Children's Book Council of Australia Awards in the Older Readers Category. I'm quite enjoying it, but trying to speed through it because it's now overdue!

In The Winter Dark - Tim Winton

I'm still listening to this in the car. I'm finding it very slow going because I don't have the car every day at the moment. All to do with school drop offs and pick ups. I have at least 3 days traveling to and from work this week so hopefully will make some headway!

What's Next?

Most probably The House at Salvation Creek by Susan Duncan . I read the first of Duncan's memoirs, Salvation Creek last year and really enjoyed it. I've been meaning to get to this for awhile now and had started it when I realised I needed to prioritise Stolen.

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


  1. Sounds like you've had a good week of reading!! I'm currently reading 'The Weird Sisters.'

    Have a great week!

  2. The House At Salvation Creek sounds intriguing. Have a wonderful week! My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/01/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-24.html

  3. I have Stolen from the library.... well, let me reword. I have the book, Stolen, that I BORROWED from my library. I did not steal it...LOL

    I cant wait to read it and hope you are enjoying it too.

  4. I want to read Stolen! It's been in my TBR for a while. I hope you like it :)

    What are you reading?

  5. I read picture books, manga and text books last week. Come see what I'm reading now.

  6. I am not familiar with your books above.
    But I think I have seen Stolen somewhere. But have not read any review about it.

  7. I need to read Stolen, but am not familiar with your other titles. Hope you enjoy them all and have a great week!

  8. Stolen sounds good...hope you enjoy all your books!


  9. I have never read Salvation Creek, but I'm going to look for it. I went back and read your review, it sounds like you live in a lovely place yourself. I'm going to follow your blog :). Thanks for stopping by mine. Incidentally, the book I recommended this week, "The Great Divorce" takes place where I live! All the areas mentioned in the book are areas I frequent. Of course the book is set in the 1800s, but the scenes are still as lovely as described.

  10. Stolen by Lucy Christopher sounds like an interesting book. I haven't read a lot about it, but what i've heard so far it's good. :)

    Happy Monday!

  11. All new titles to me, adding them to my wish list!


  12. I really want to read Stolen. I hope you enjoy it.
