It's Monday

It's that time of the week. :-)

Your meme is hosted by Sheila, here:

I finished The Snow Child by Eowyn Levy last week, and I have to say I liked it really rather a lot. It's set in 1920s Alaska, and it felt like the landscape was a whole other character.

It's based on the old fairytale which, from memory ends rather sadly, but The Snow Child was great. A little sad, but great.

I also read Daytripper, a graphic novel by Fabio Moon. It's a kind of day in the life/stream of consciousness thing, which highlights different days in one man's life. At the end of each segment, the man dies, and it all kind of knits together at the end. I really, really enjoyed it.

I also read The Tea Chest by Josephine Moon, which was a nice, light read after the previous two angst-fests.

Now, I'm reading Wool by Hugh Howey, and I'm about to start Dog Will Have His Day by Fred Vargas, and embark on a re-read of The City & The City by China Mieville with Jodie. And I'm slowly making my way through One Hundred Years of Solitude for the fourth time.

What are you reading?

I really really need to read One Hundred Years of Solitude. Maybe I will make it a summer goal!

Have a great week!

All unknown to me, but many fairy tales were not full of joy! I had a love/hate relationship with some of them.

Jodie said...

I loved The Snow Child, but not the ending (I wanted her to live).
