It's Monday! What are you reading?

Your meme is here: http://bookjourney.wordpress.com/

I had hoped to finish A Game of Thrones by today, but I have about 100 pages to go. I'm still loving it but I don't think I"ll plunge right into A Clash of Kings just yet. It makes me want to lie down in a dark room with lavendar to bathe my temples - lol.

Next up, I think, might be The Poisonwood Bible. I'm not sure. We went to the library on Saturday and yes, I know, ban, but I promised Patrick we'd take him to the children's library and Jeremy said he didn't need to get any books, so what's a girl to do?

Exactly.

I've  had The Poisonwood Bible for a while, and it's from my TBR so I shall try and be good. :-)

Happy reading.

I'd like to attempt to tackle Game of Thrones but I completely agree with you on having to have a break between such massive epics.

Lydia said...

I recently devoured all of the GRRM books in a week - I totally hear you on needing breaks in between them, I was just worried I wouldn't go back!

I really want to give Game Of Thrones a try!

Jennifer said...

I really enjoyed The Poisonwood Bible. It has been a long time since I read it, so I think I shall re-read it. Have a fantastic week.

Brooke, Rachel and Sheila: It's been on my radar for a while, and I wanted to read the book before embarking on the TV series. Loving it :-)
Lydia: I'm definitely going to need a break, I'm loving it but boy, there's a lot going on - lol
Jennifer: I've been wanting to read it for a while and I've had a copy of it for a few months so I'm looking forward to it :-)
The1stdaughter: Thank you! I'm working on it. Lol it's hard isn't it?
Lex: Loving it so far! And welcome! :D

I loved Game of Thrones. I read a few other books before moving on to Clash of Kings. I don't have much to go on that one and I will have a gap before the next one again although it is good. I don't know if your edition will be the same as the UK one but the text in Clash of Kings is tiny compared to the rest of the series. It's making me move a lot slower.

I loved The Poisonwood Bible. Hope you enjoy it too. If you enjoy it (and haven't read this one already) I highly recommend The Lacuna.

Yeah, I haven't moved on in Martin's series yet despite enjoying the first book. I hope to soon!

I'm posting late this week because I've been on a trip to the mountains and out of reach of the internet. Please come see what I've read.
