"This is a weekly event to list the books completed last week, the books currently being reading, and the books to be finished this week."I think I really need something like this to keep me on track. Thanks, J. Kaye.
So, here's where I am, literarily, this week:
Last week, I only finished one book, Douglas Preston's Blasphemy. Hope to make myself sit down and write a short review very soon. Also need to write a bunch of reviews of several other books I've completed in the last few weeks. [Note to self: Get with it!]
Still reading A.S. Byatt's Angels & Insects. I made my way through the first of the two novellas (Morpho Eugenia), and later today I'll be starting the second (The Conjugial Angel). This is not a terribly long book, but it seems to be taking me ages to finish. I had the same problem with Byatt's Possession. Maybe she's just not the writer for me.
Also still reading (theoretically, anyway) The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. In reality, I've sort of shelved this one for a while. It never really grabbed my interest, so I'm letting it marinate a bit. Maybe it'll be more palatable later on.
And coming up for various challenges, these are the books I'll be reading in the next few weeks:
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
The Hours by Michael Cunningham
Ignorance by Milan Kundera
Play It As It Lays by Joan Didion
The Private Patient by P.D. James
At least that's the list for now. I might also throw in a cozy mystery somewhere along the line, too. So I've got lots to keep me busy. Guess I need to get back to my reading.
So, what are you reading this week?
