It’s Monday! What Are You Reading This Week? is a weekly event to list the books finished last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finish this week. It was created by J.Kaye’s Book Blog, but is now being hosted by Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books.!
I don’t know about you, but I had a fantastic reading weekend!
Yes! I participated in my first Persephone Reading Weekend, reading my very first Persephone. I talked about how great the books are on Saturday, soon (I hope tomorrow!) I will talk about how great the writing was. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day was such a fantastic book! I loooooved it. Loved it, loved it, loved it. Didn’t want it to end. Hugged it at the end. Will definitely read again. And I WILL see the movie! It’s at the top of my Netflix queue!
I also finished The Coffins of Little Hope by Tim Schaffert this week. It’s not out for awhile, so I won’t review it until closer to the release date, but suffice to say, I really enjoyed it. I will definitely be reading more Tim Schaffert.
I finished listening to The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, performed by Nick Podehl. Wow. All I can say is wow! I loved reading the book myself, but the audio. The audio! It takes it to whole ‘nother level! Absolutely amazing. I wish I could play you a clip. I think it may well be one of the best audio productions I’ve ever heard. The way they did the Noise…. Yeah, wow. I know I said I was going to listen to this series straight through, but once I finished I realized I needed to have a break in between. So, I started Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett. Plus, I needed a comfort read. I adore Terry Pratchett and I really really adore the Tiffany Aching series. Stephen Briggs does such a great job reading these books. I especially love how he reads the Nac Mac Feegles! Ach. Crivens.
After I finished Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day yesterday, I started Darkest Mercy, the last in the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr. And I read over half of it in one day. So far, I would say it was a bit slow to get started, I mean, she has a LOT of ground to cover, but I’m so happy to be back with Ashlinn, Seth, Keenan, Donia, Irial, and Niall, that I don’t much care. 🙂
As for this week, my plans are to start reading In a Dark Wood Wandering by Hella S. Haasse with Aarti and maybe (because the Haasse is so huge!) Saplings by Noel Streatfeild, another Persephone. Did I mention I must own all of these? It’s a new life mission.
So? How was your reading week?
