It's Monday! What are you reading?

Monday seems to come around faster and faster, doesn't it?

Your meme is hosted here:

I hope everyone had a happy Christmas, and that there was much reading done :-)

For myself, I finished Guardian of the West by David Eddings, and Hercule Poirot's Christmas, by Agatha Christie. Both re-reads, but both very enjoyable.

On the slate this week we have Fierce September, by Fleur Beale. It's the sequel to Juno of Taris and I'm reading it now because it's due back at the library on January 1. Good stuff so far.

Also King of the Murgos, book 2 of the Mallorean; The Mists of Avalon, which is  my half-assed online book club's read for December/January; Quillblade by Ben Chandler; The Two Towers (I'm getting bloody-minded about finishing LOTR again - lol) and The Fall, by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, which is my break time at work read. :-)

Obviously this will take longer than a week, but that's what my night stand looks like. How's yours this week?

I'm probably going to pick up reading Sherlock Holmes stories from where I left off earlier this year. I do have a few other books for readalongs and challenges, but I'll probably wait on them a little bit.

I haven't read any of the books on your stack...they do look intriguing.

Hope you enjoy them.

Here's my Monday:

Shocked that I did not know there was a Hercule Poirot Christmas! I'm a big Agatha fan! I need to do some research

Here's mine

Kathy Martin said...

Gracious! You seem to have a very well-organized plan. I hope it works out for you. I just caught a few minutes of one of the LOTR movies this evening and now I want to read the books again. Happy reading!

I could manage only one book!

Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading? post!

Helen's Book Blog said...

I enjoyed Mists of Avalon when I read it AGES ago!

Candace said...

The Mists of Avalon! LOVE that book! I was thinking of making it a New Years Resolution to reread it next year but I'm afraid it won't be as good the second time around. So we'll see.

Tanya Patrice said...

Oh my gosh - I haven't read Sherlock Holmes in forever. I have an Agatha Christie to read in the next month too!

Julie said...

I have The Fall and The Strain on my to-buy list. I also really need to get to the Mallorean series (just so many good books and so little time) David Eddings rock, but I can't imagine a more disparate set of reads than Guardian of the West and an Agatha Christie novel! LOL!

I've been on a Christmas reading spree, but didn't even think of looking into Christie Christmas books. Looks like you had a great week!

Tasha said...

Have a fab week! My It's Monday is here.
Come and link reviews of books with a TV/Movie Adaptation on this week's Read My Review

I liked The Fall, I was suprised to find! Hope you enjoy it too! Happy Reading!

The1stdaughter said...

Wow! Those are some incredible reads you've got on your list. I've been trying to get LOTR read for ages and it just never seems to come together. Best of luck!

Have a fantastic reading week and thank you so much for stopping by earlier!
