It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.

I finally finished Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher, though I would have been very happy if this book had never ended. I love it so much I am not even going to attempt writing a regular review, because I know I cannot possibly be objective about it. This was the third time I have read it, and I can see myself reading it every other Christmas until I am old and grey and can no longer focus on the page (but that is what audio books are for, right?).

I will also finish Flaggermusmannen (The Bat Man) by Jo Nesbø in a little while; only 30 pages to go. It is the first book in the Harry Hole detective series. I was planning on writing a review of it, but then I realised that is has not been translated into English (neither has the second book), so I guess there would be no point.

I had such big plans to read several of the new books I bought before Christmas, but suddenly I heard someone calling my name from the top shelf. When I looked it was Harry Potter, demanding I finish the series or he would have Hermione turn me nto something mushy, so I had to listen to him. I have decided to start from the beginning again and read all the books instead of picking up where I left off two years ago (my, how time flies!), so I will start Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone tonight.

I have never been able to read a series back to back, so I will have to read at least a couple of other books in between HP books. I'm thinking Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz to begin with, though knowing me that might change tomorrow.

What books are calling your name this week?

Rereading HP is like visiting an old friend. I just finished Hector and the Search for Happiness which was a great little book.
