It’s Monday, What are you reading? is a weekly chance to share what you’ve been reading recently and what you want to read this week. It’s held by The Book Date so check out her blog if you want to join in!
I was in a bit of a slump last week. I picked up 3 different books and couldn’t get into them so DNF’d:
- Tithe – Holly Black
- Common Ground – Rob Cowen
- A God in Ruins – Kate Atkinson
I did finally manage to finish the audiobook of The Picture of Dorian Gray, which I was reading for the Books in the Freezer Readathon. I’m glad I listened to the audiobook of this, as I’m not sure I’d have stuck with the literary style if I was reading it.
I’m currently reading This is going to hurt by Adam Kay, which are his diaries of his time working as a doctor for the NHS. It was everywhere earlier this year, and I’m really enjoying it, it’s definitely worth the hype.
I’m also listening to Notes on a Scandal by Zoe Heller, about a teacher at a school in London who has an affair with her pupil and that’s very intriguing so far.
This year I have been (very slowly) rereading the Harry Potter series for the hundredth time, so I think I will start Half Blood Prince.
