The reading week

I refuse to believe that it's Monday already and time for another What Are You Reading? post, hosted by the wonderful

Uhm ... I'm still having crappy reading times. I did, however finish Ella Enchanted, which was the perfect antidote to The Strain.

It was light, and fluffy, and Ella is such a great character. Loved it. :)
Uhm ... also on the menu this week is Memoirs of a Master Forger, by William Heaney; aka Graham Joyce, who everybody should read. Seriously. Go find some Graham Joyce. He is The Goods. That's my main course this week, but I'm going with Coraline as an appetiser, because I got a new copy from the review cupboard at work and I haven't read it for a while. Also, the movie is meant to be coming out next month, so I want to be all up to date.

And what's for dessert? Hmmm .... Queen of Sorcery, probably; with The Passion by Jeanette Winterson as the cheese/coffee. That way I'll actually get The Challenge That Dare Not Speak Its Name off to a good start.

Happy reading!

Hope you have a good reading week this week!

Queen of Sorcery like in David Eddings?? I can't remember the last time I head anyone was reading that series and it's soooo good

Thanks everyone! :)
J Kaye and Erotic Horizon: you're welcome. He writes short, spooky novels. Requiem is excellent. As is Dreamside :)
DesLily: Yes, David Eddings. I'm re-reading them because he died a few weeks ago. :(
