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 if you heard, but Dewey’s Readathon was this weekend. And I got LOTS of reading done! Did you participate? What did you read?
This week, I didn’t finish any books (other than my readathon books), mainly because I’m reading such a chunkster. I am now over 400 pages into The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and y’all. I am completely engrossed. I can’t remember the last time (yes I can) when I was so into such a looooong book. (It was The Crimson and the White and it was YEARS ago). I have a little over 200 pages to go, so don’t really look for me to finish it this week. But maybe keep your fingers crossed. It’s just so good!
I finished listening to I Shall Wear Midnight, the last of the currently released Tiffany Aching stories in the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. I love this series so hard. I saw somewhere that there would be one more. I really really hope so! So, my Terry Pratchett loving friends; where do I go now? To the beginning, with the Colour of Magic? Or somewhere else? I’m still learning to navigate this large, splendid world of Mr. Pratchett’s!
I am now listening to Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, read by Jeremy Irons. It is a distinctly uncomfortable read, as intended, and Mr. Iron’s isn’t helping. The gorgeous writing isn’t helping and neither is that sexy purr of a British voice! It just ups the discomfort level, lemmetellya. Wowzers! I think I’ll finish it this week.
If you didn’t see, this weekend I read five books (and part of a sixth) during the readathon. They were all wonderful! Here’s the run down:
1. Bone: Rose by Jeff Smith
2. where i live by Eileen Spinelli, illustrated by Matt Phelan
3. Bone: Tall Tales by Tom Sniegoski and Jeff Smith
4. The Kitchen Daughter by Jael Henry
5. Hare Moon: A Forest of Hands and Teeth Short Story ebook thingy by Carrie Ryan
6. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, about 130 pages
How was your week? Plans for this one? Have a great reading week!
