It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila
A weekly meme where we list the books completed last week, the books currently being read and the books we plan to read this week.


Last week I read:
The Gallows Curse by Karen Maitland - I read 200 pages and then decided I'd had enough. DNF
Sticks & Stones by Ilsa Evans 
The Ghost Writer by John Harwood


Added reviews for:
Wrecker by Summer Wood (quick review)
The Strange Fate of Kitty Easton by Elizabeth Speller (quick review)
Corrag by Susan Fletcher
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs


Currently reading:

The Circus of Ghosts by Barbara Ewing............have almost finished and absolutely loving it! 
Elizabeth Street by Laurie Fabiano.......on my Kindle - a nice story but not compulsive reading.

Coming up next

13, rue Therese by Elena Mauli Shapiro
Blue Monday by Nicci French
The Other Hand by Chris Cleave............as the book that's been on my shelf the longest it's first in line in my attempt to read more of the books I own.  I'm following Judith@Leeswammes suggestion and committing to 75p and then deciding if I want to continue or not.

Have a great week!

  1. That It's Monday always throws me for a loop, since it is only 4PM Sunday on the west coast...

  2. I think the 75 page rule is a good idea. Sometimes I try to force myself to keep reading and I could be reading something else instead.

    I've heard good things about 13 Rue Therese. I've also heard that Little Bee (The Other Hand) is a good book club pick.

    I'll have to suggest Elizabeth Street to my sister. She has always enjoyed reading books about the Mafia and other crime organizations.

    I hope you enjoy your reading this week. It looks like you have a nice variety to pick from.

  10. I have seen really mixed reviews about The Gallows, either people really like or really hate it. Thankfully their is always another book waiting for us to open it.
