It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

IMWAYR is hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey and is a little round-up of the week for bloggers that read.

Books I've read:
Death Mask by Kathryn Fox 2/5
Monsieur Linh and His Child by Philippe Claudel 4/5

Currently reading:
I think I might have to shelve Gormenghast for a bit as I seem to be reading it in smaller and smaller chunks each week and therefore am so far behind the readalong group.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman

Upcoming reads:
The Beast of the Camargue by Xavier-Marie Bonnot
Blow on a Dead Man's Embers by Mari Strachan
Sympathy for the Devil by Justin Gustainis

Surprise books in:
Beautiful Thing by Sonia Faleiro (Canongate)
Until Thy Wrath Be Past by Asa Larsson (Quercus)
The Golden Mean by Annabel Lyon (newbooks I think)

I also blogged about:
Cold Hillside | The Photography of Stéphane Giner | Google+ | Paris Fasions, 1912 | Hors de Prix


  1. Enjoy your reading week, Ellie.


  2. I hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy your books.
    My Monday:

  3. How are you finding The Magicians? I quite enjoyed that, a reading group read a few months ago. Btw I haven't stopped following only through GFC. I follow via networked blogs, FB and twitter.

  4. I'm really enjoying it though it's probably a bit more demanding than I was expecting, but not in a bad way! Should have it finished in time to review tomorrow evening.

  5. I struggled with Gormenghast too. I read the first book quite quickly, waded through the second with difficulty and then took about 3 months to finally reach the end of the third! I hope you enjoy your other books better.

  6. Gormenghast is on my someday TBR but it has the feel of a wintry book to me, so I might tackle when it's gray here. What do you think of the Magicians so far?

  7. Some interesting looking books! Enjoy!
