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 can hardly believe January is over already! I should probably start thinking about Christmas presents soon... January was a great reading month. I finished 7 books, which has to be a record for me in recent years. I usually only manage 2 or 3 a month, so I'm very happy. If I can keep this up, I will soon have to revise my goal of rading 40 books this year.
READ LAST WEEK
Last week I finished The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner, which was good, despite a somewhat slow first half. I also read The Greek Symbol Mystery by Carolyn Keene, a classic Nancy Drew mystery.
I have almost finished Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. I had forgotten most of what happened in this book, so I'm glad I decided to re-read it. I'm having lots of fun with it.
It looks like 2011 will be the year of re-reads for me. I had a sudden urge to read an old favourite again; The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. I want to read it again before I move on to the next book in the series, so if I still feel like it tonight (it's huge!) that is what I will pick up.
What are you reading this week?
