It's Monday! What are you Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Is a meme hosted by Shelia over at Book Journey. A weekly check in to see what you are currently reading and what is coming up. Head over to Shelia's blog to see what others are reading this week.

Keeping with current trends, it's been two weeks since I've done a Monday post, and even then I haven't linked the last two on Sheila's blog - will make sure I do so today!

What am I reading now.

The Kings of Clonmel - John Flanagan
Book 8 in the Ranger's Apprentice series. My 10 year old son is now reading this series and I better get a move on or he will catch up to me!
What am I listening to.

Tommo & Hawk - Bryce Courtenay

Unfortunately this seems to be heading the same way as The Potato Factory  - not much going on! My mum is visiting and I lent her my Kindle to read The Light Between Oceans so haven't been able to listen to much of this - soon, I hope!

 What I Read Since I Last Posted a Monday Post!

Well, I may not be posting, but I am reading. Both Fifty Shades and Light Between Oceans made it into the last list, but I hadn't reviewed them yet, so I've included the reviews this week. 

 Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L James
 The Light Between Oceans - M.L Stedman
Guards! Guards! - Terry Pratchett
A Suitable Boy - Vikram Seth
Between The Lines - Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer

What's next?

Who knows! Have a stack of stuff I need to sort through. My contract at work has ended so I am currently waiting to see if anything else pops up - in the meantime I need to catch up on some house stuff, committee stuff and just enjoy some time with my mum while she is here!

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


  1. I was one who enjoyed the Fifty Shades trilogy and Between the lines was quite imaginative. What did you think? Have a great week and enjoy the time with your mum :)

    1. I wasn't a big fan of Between the Lines - it wasn't bad, just very meh!

  2. I just finished 50 Shades of Grey on audio. I didn't think it started out too bad, and I was like - what's all the fuss about. But then ... so yeah, I agree with your review ... although my favorite repetitive phrases are "hot" and "stop chewing on that lip" - I think I might have tried to reach through my headphones & pull her lips off myself!

  3. Great to have you linked up today! Looks like some good reading!

  4. My husband has been reading the Ranger's Apprentice series. My favorite read last week was Amulet, Vol. 5: Prince of the Elves (audio) by Kazu Kibuishi. Please come see what else I'm reading.

  5. Good reading happening here! Enjoy!!

  6. Enjoy your books and have a great week!

  7. Between the Lines is on a lot of reading lists! Have a great week of reading.

  8. I loooved 50 Shades. I know it's all controversial right now, but I loved it! :)
