Its Monday! What are you Reading? 7th Feb

7 Feb

It’s Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly meme held over on Book Journey.

I finished one book in the last week – Everything is Illuminated – Jonathan Safron Foer. This was for my Rory Challenge and is also on the 1001 books list. I did struggle with this one for a little while, but i will give it a re-read soon and i think i will understand it better the second time around.

I’m currently reading Staying At Daisy’s – Jill Mansell. I’m a huge fan of Jill Mansell, for me her books never disappoint and this one is just the same. I’m enjoying it so much!

I brought a couple of books this week aswell 😀

Notes on a Scandal – Zoe Heller

Scott Mariani – The Shadow Project
Stephanie Mayer – The Host
Lemony Snicket – A Series of Unfortunate Events – The Austere Academy (book 5)
Lemony Snicket – A Series of Unfortunate Events – The Vile Village (book 7)

Next i think i will read Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend – Jenny Colgan. I’m having a huge read through of all the chick lit books i own so i can start reading some more challenging stuff!

    I’m reading a book by Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) as well! It’s called The Basic Eight and I’m really excited about it. I’ve never read Jill Mansell, but after your post I’m going to have to pick up a copy of her books.
