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.

What Am I Reading Now

 The Carnivorous Carnival - Lemony Snicket. We've only just started this in the car - so far so good!

Breath - Tim Winton. Having finished The Turning last week, this is my new adult audio in the car.
The Science of Fear - Daniel Gardner. I first spotted this from another blogger who participates in this meme. Sounded good, so I borrowed it from the library. I think it has the potential to be interesting, but I'm not sure I'm in the right head space at the moment. We'll see how I go.

The Help - Kathryn Stockett. I am about half way through this on my kindle and loving it! Unfortunately I broke my kindle yesterday so am totally bereft!

Call the Midwife - Jennifer Worth. This is what I picked up to console myself when I broke my kindle. Loving it as well.


What I read last week.

I didn't have a bad week for finishes this week - 2 - although it might have been 3 if I hadn't broken my kindle!! (no, I'm not bitter about it at all!!)

The Turning - Tim Winton. This is Winton at his best. A collection of 17 interconnected short stories.True brilliance.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot. Fascinating read. The medical world and anyone who has every had life saving treatment, immunisations or a variety of other medical interventions owes this woman and her cells so much!

So that's my week! I've just been on the phone ordering a new kindle from Amazon - 4 to 14 days! Hopefully it will be the 4 and I'll be able to add The Help to my finished list next week!

Did you check out my TED Talks Tuesday last week? I hope so. Check back tomorrow for another amazing TED Talk - don't know which one yet as there are so many amazing ones to choose from!

So how was your week? Leave me a comment and a link - I'd love to know what you've been up to!
