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.

A lot of you will be recovering from Dewey's readathon this week. It can pretty much account for all the books I've read this week, I didn't even post last Monday as I'd only read Deadline and have been struggling through Harvesting the Heart.

I did however raise a fantastic £143.27 for the Alzheimer's Society.

Books I've read:
Snuff by Terry Pratchett 4/5
Star Gazing by Linda Gillard 5/5
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams 5/5

Currently reading:
Killed at the Whim of a Hat by Colin Cotterill
Harvesting the Heart by Jodi Picoult

Upcoming reads:
Maybe something scary for Halloween, any suggestions?

I also blogged about:

Good luck to those of you partaking in the week-long Bout of Books readathon!


  1. Sounds like you had a great read-a-thon. Congrats on your pledges! Star Gazing is I book I hadn't heard of before. Loved your review of it.

  2. Yay! Congrats on raising so much. A fantastic cause.

    Looks like you enjoyed the Terry Pratchett. I do plan on getting back into his books again at some point.

    If you like ghost stories I read "Turn of the Screw" last year by Henry James and it scared the hell out of me. Ghosts and creepy children! The Haunting of Hill House was good although not scary. The Shining by Stephen King also scared me half to death. I haven't read any Edgar Alan Poe but his collections are always recommended to me. Going to start that as my next Halloween read after Odd Thomas.

  3. Sounds like you had a fabulous week all around! I love that you liked all your books last week so well, it's always great when that happens :)

  4. What are you thinking about "Harvesting the Heart"?? Excited to hear your thoughts. I just read "Change of Heart" by Jodi Picoult. Excellent!

  5. I can usually plough through a Jodi P in a day or a couple of evenings but I've been reading Harvesting the Heart all week. It's starting to get better now but it's not up to her usual standard.

  6. Awesome catch up!! Sounds like you had a great week! :) I've been dying to do a Readathon but haven't been able to coordinate with when they fall!

  7. In honor of Halloween, I like to read creepy short story collections. I liked Full Dark No Stars by Stephen King (although it's not really that creepy).

  8. Your readathon was very successful! Three books, all highly rated. I also read 3 books in the read-a-thon which I was very happy with.

    Hope this week is good too!

  9. Congrats on raising so much for a great cause! I hop eyou enjoy this weeks reading, if you are looking for something scary you can't go past a stephen King or Dean Koontz novel!

  10. I'm reading del Toro/Hogan's The Fall. Have Dust by Joan Frances Turner in my TBR and hoping to get to Peter Straub's Ghost Story this week as well.

  11. Glad you had a good readathon -- Hitchhiker's Guide is a great choice!

  12. Looks like you had a good readathon, and read some great books! I hope you have a good reading week!

  13. You read two of my favorite writers - Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams. I still need to get a copy of Snuff.

    and congratulations on raising the money for Alzheimers!

  14. Good question about the Halloween reading pick...I would say anything by Darren Shaw or the Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey if you like YA. Or Frankenstein.. :) Nice job raising all that money for Alzheimers!

  15. Talk about busy! Good job on your money raising! Star Gazing sounds like an interesting read.
