Its Monday! What are you Reading? (19th November)

19 Nov

 

Its Monday! What are you Reading? is a weekly bookish meme held on Book Journey by Sheila. It’s a great place to discuss your week in reading and see what others are reading too.

i didnt take part last week as i hadnt read anything new! I’ve had a very busy week again running about doing stuff and the highlight for me was watching Breaking Dawn part 2. This was amazing!

Books Read

Over the past week ive read one book, Trixie Trader by Helen Dunne. This was a chick lit book that i had on my shelf for a couple of years and i have to say i didnt enjoy it too much. I couldnt really warm to Trixie and she really annoyed me. Still, this would have probably been better as a beach read!

Reading Now

At the minute I’m currently reading The Marlowe Conspiracy by M. G. Scarsbrook. This book is set in the period of Elizabeth I and has not only her but Christopher Malowe and William Shakespeare in as a work of fiction. Its very good and is all about spying and things like that. I am enjoying it, not bad for a kindle freebie!

Next Up

Next up is a book that has been on my shelf for a long time, The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger. This is a book that ive wanted to read for a long time even if it has been made into a film. I havent watched it yet, but once ive read the book i will do!

Synopsis – Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, lands the job “a million girls would die for.” Hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the high-profile, fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine, Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn, a world populated by impossibly thin, heart-wrenchingly stylish women and beautiful men clad in fine-ribbed turtlenecks and tight leather pants that show off their lifelong dedication to the gym. With breathtaking ease, Miranda can turn each and every one of these hip sophisticates into a scared, whimpering child.

    The Marlowe Conspiracy does sound fascinating. I wonder if we will ever solve that mystery!
