It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

I lost my reading mojo in the last fortnight but it's picking back up now. Really feel like I've a lot of unfinished books on the go that I do want to finish at some point but now isn't the right time. Although I can't put my finger on what books are working for me right now, which doesn't help!

A few weeks ago I joined Gav and Simon on The Readers podcast to talk about Lucy Wood's wonderful short story collection, Diving Belles. Yes, I did forget to include it in the last update! I'm also on the Curiosity Quills blog spotlight answering a few questions about books and blogging.

Read last fortnight:
A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen
The Guard by Peter Terrin
The Haunted Book by Jeremy Dyson
Mad River by John Sandford
Discordia by Laurie Penny

Also reviewed:

Search terms:*

"french for rabbits"
A very specialised language course.

"curiosity killed your virginity"
That's a harsh way of putting it.

"dead people in my photos and trees and clouds"
*backs away slowly*

"scary clowns at doorsteps"
This is something I'd like to avoid this Halloween.

"me before you by jojo moyes philippe pozzo di borgo"
Not the same story guys!

*Idea stolen borrowed from Amanda's Clock Rewinders feature.


  1. I look forward to hearing about Grimm Tales and The Haunted Book.

    As for the search terms - the strange and, at times, rather scary things that people look for. *Scratches head*

  2. The Black Dagger Brotherhood series is one I've been meaning to get around to. Hopefully one day soon I will *sighs*

    I love the search terms - so funny :D

  3. Have a great reading week!
