It’s Monday! What are you Reading? (7th January)

7 Jan

0Its 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 havent taken part in this meme for a couple of weeks as ive been so busy again and havent really had anytime for reading. Things are finally calming down now and hopefully ill get back into the swing of reading again!

Books Read

Over the last couple of weeks I finally finished Chocolat by Joanne Harris. I really enjoyed the story of this book and the many layers that it had in. I thought that the book was very well written and i cant wait to read more by the author!

Reading Now

I’m currently reading The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney. This is the book for the January reading circle. I havent really got all that far into it yet but there is an awful lot of description in it.

Next Up

Next up is a kindle book, Replay by Keira Lea. This is a young adult book, maybe a bit paranormal too so this could be a really good book!

Synopsis – Kelsee Lewis has a new school, a prima donna best friend, and one week to write a hit play. Throw in a self-obsessed mom and an absent executive dad, and it’s no wonder she has panic attacks—complete with time-warp special effects. When Kelsee meets comic book maven Quinn, she realizes the attacks give her the ability to rewind time.

Replaying life seems like the best way to erase mistakes. But will second chances leave Kelsee flailing in the orchestra pit alone?

Books Brought

I got one book from my wishlist this week, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. This is a book that has been on my wishlist for a long time and i cant wait to get around to it.

Synopsis – Angelfield House stands abandoned and forgotten. It was once home to the March family – fascinating, manipulative Isabelle, brutal, dangerous Charlie, and the wild, untamed twins, Emmeline and Adeline. But Angelfield House hides a chilling secret which strikes at the very heart of each of them, tearing their lives apart…

 Now Margaret Lea is investigating Angelfield’s past – and the mystery of the March family starts to unravel. What has Angelfield been hiding? What is its connection with the enigmatic writer Vida Winter? And what is the secret that strikes at the heart of Margaret’s own, troubled life?

 As Margaret digs deeper, two parallel stories unfold, and the tale she uncovers sheds a disturbing light on her own life…

 

So, What are you Reading?
