What Are You Reading On Mondays!

A weekly event hosted by J.Kaye's Book Blog.

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

A new month - January always flies by so fast with all the activity of summer holiday time. My reading usually drops off so I'm amazed that I've actually read 13 books in January.

Last week certainly added to the total . I finished Devil's Brood by Sharon Penman - review is here.
Then I had a nice little pile of books that were not only smaller and easier to read but were all so good I couldn't put them down and had several nights reading into the small hours.
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley - review here
The Gathering Night by Margaret Elphinstone
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Reviews for the last two coming this week.

One non-fiction - A Time to Dance A Time to Die by John Waller - mini review here

Currently reading:

Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks.

I'm never really sure what I'm going to read next - depends how the mood takes me but these two will probably be part of  this week's plan.

The Murderer's Daughters by R S Meyers
The Tudor Rose by Margaret Campbell Barnes


  1. Nice line-up of books, I'm keen to read Year of Wonders. Have a great reading week :-)

  2. I've never read any books by Geraldine Brooks but the cover art intrigues me and made me go google the book! From the description, it surely sounds like something I'd love. Hope that you'll enjoy your reads for this week =)

    Happy weekdays!

  3. Years Of Wonder looks really good. Actually - so do the other two you have on deck for this week. Enjoy! :)

  4. I really enjoyed The Art of Racing in the Rain. I'm wondering if you did!

    Hope you have a great week and may you get lots of reading in.

  7. Both "Sweetness ... Pie" and "Art of Racing in the Rain" are on my 2010 to read list. : )
