It's Monday ...

Your meme is hosted here by Sheila: http://bookjourney.net/

It’s been a few weeks for me, because I had a bit of a slow-down. I have no idea whether I’m back on track or not, but at least I won’t be repeating myself with what I’m reading.

I finished The Giver by Lois Lowry and If I Stay by Gayle Foreman in reasonably quick succession, and liked both of them a lot, although I liked The Giver more.

Then I troughed for a bit before picking up Moving Pictures by Mr Sir Terry Pratchett. I’ve been trying - off and on, and more off than on lately - to read all of the Discworld novels in publishing order. When I started, I hadn’t read any and wondered - upon reading The Colour of Magic - what on earth I had been doing with my life up till that point.

I finished Moving Pictures on Saturday and hopefully will get on to the next one in relatively short order.

I’m also re-reading The Sparrow for Trish’s readalong: http://www.lovelaughterinsanity.com/2014/09/sparrow-readalong-beginning.html I forgot how much I LOVE The Sparrow.

At work, my lunchtime reading at the moment is Sand by Hugh Howey. I acutally liked Wool a lot better, but Sand is still pretty readable.

What are you reading?

Mr Sir :D

I read them in subseries rather than strictly pub order, but I remember that "what HAVE I been doing with my life?" feeling well :P

I keep meaning to read The Giver but I haven't gotten up enough energy to see if my family has it or not or if I need to check it out from the library.
