What Are You Reading On Mondays!


A weekly event now hosted by Sheila at One Person's Book Journey


List the books completed last week, the books currently being read and the books you plan to read this week.

This week I finished reading Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks - my review is here.
Then I read The Murderer's Daughters by R S Meyers - mini review and
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. I've decided to read the next two of the Sevenwaters trilogy and review them all together.
The Tudor Rose by Margaret Campbell Barnes - review to come.

Also posted a review of The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.


Currently I'm reading:
 
Someone Knows My Name
 
by Lawrence Hill
 
 
After that these two are next on the pile but they're both similar looking HF and I like to have some variety so maybe something else will grab my attention.
 
The Secret of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig
The Rose of Sebastopol by Katherine McMahon
 

I hope you'll enter my February Giveaway here

  3. Love Juliet Marillier's books! The others also look very intriguing. Looks as though you're on a historical fiction kick. :)

  4. I love Year of Wonders! One of the few books I've re-read. It got a lot more attention after March won so much glory. I think you'll really like Pink Carnation and want to plow through the whole series.

  18. I LOVED Year of Wonders. I read it a while back, but it was really awesome, and it's one of those books I recommend a lot. I'll be interested in reading your review when you're finished.

  20. I like the cover of Someone Knows My Name. Isn't that the book that's sold in Canada under the title Book of Negroes or something like that?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lynne - its still on order at my library so have to wait until they get it.

    Stephanie - yes, that's right. Don't know why they do this name change thing. Its very good - I recommend.

  22. Hey,

    I came over from OnePerson'sJourney. I'm looking at the cover for Someone Knows My Name, and just the cover looks interesting. I looked it up at the Book Depository, but couldn't find any info on it. What's it about?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hi Mardel ....... The book has also been published under the name The Book of Negroes so you might have more success looking for it under that name.
    It's the story of a young African girl, captured and sold into slavery in the 18th century. The author won the Commonwealth Writers Prize in 2008 - its very good!

  25. I really liked Daughter of the Forest...I must read the next one. How did you like the book. I am assuming well enough since you are going to continue on with the series.

    Read your review of Year of Wonders. Fabulous review...a great reminder to me that this book is on my tbr list and I must movie it up to be read soon.

    I hope you have a great reading week!
