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. This week Sheila has been hosting this meme for a year. Happy anniversary, Sheila!

So January came and went, and with it went the snow. We have had mostly rain here lately, which is fine by me, because I am not a fan of shoveling snow. This coming Sunday is Mother's Day here in Norway, so I will be busy this week baking a cake and making a card for my lovely Mum. Oh, and I have to pay the VAT on Thursday, so I need to get some accounting done as well.

I finished Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on Monday, bringing my final total of books read in January up to 8 books.

Lately I have been drawn to old favourites, so now I am rereading The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. It has only been two years since I read it for the first time, but I had forgotten just how good it really is. Definitely one of my all-time favourite books. At 715 pages it is a small brick, and after a week I am only just over half-way through. But I am enjoying it so much I would not have minded if it was twice that long. Besides, I will most likely finish it this week - last time it took me almost a month.

I received an ARC of The Survivor by Sean Slater through Book Chick City's Mystery & Thriller Challenge. It will be published in March, so I am thinking I should get that out of the way soon. If not, I have about 200 other TBRs to choose from!

What are you reading this week?

OOH The Lies of Locke Lamora looks interesting and the fact that you are re reading this large book makes me want to know what it is about even more!

Have a wonderful week - I cant wait until the rain in Minnesota takes away all our snow... I have a month or so yet though to wait that one out...
