What are you reading?


  1. I'm thinking of reading Shadow of the Wind too! Might listen to it on Audio…still thinking of that one..And you still haven't finished the Gardella books???? They're so good!

  2. wow I am amazed that I've actually read 4 of those books!!! The Weed that Strings the Hangmans Bag of course is good. I very much enjoyed Shadow of the Wind. The Book of Lost THings I read a few years ago for RIP and The Distant HOurs.. I seem to like Kate Morton (waiting on her new book to come out!) You are in for some good reading!!!!!

  3. I took off verification also.. i hate doing it and hate not having it..wish they'd come up with a better one one you could READ to do it! geez. I hate that not only do I have to delete them off my "spam" part of my blog but some come thru to my email and I have to see them there too! I sincerely do not get why people even bother to do that.

  4. Ooooh! I think I have The Distant Hours on my audible list! Or maybe it's another of hers. I'm going to join...just need to get with it (hoping for good naps today as it's a holiday). I'm mostly going to be reading books about psychos though (Dueling Monsters). And maybe I'll attempt Good Omens again...would that count? It's another I have on audible waiting for me.

  5. You have some good reads there. *Love* Sunshine to bits. the Alan Bradley is very good too. Happy reading!

  6. I'm reading Affinity by Sarah Waters, but I might pick up Tipping the Velvet, too.

  7. I really must read some Alan Bradley. I keep seeing all the good things people like Carl say about his books.

    I downloaded a copy of Shadow of the Wind ages ago from Audible, but I've never got around to listening to it, because I hadn't realised it was an abridged version… Not sure what I'll make of it.

  8. You're so sweet to give the people what they want. :D Why do I suspect you'll read twice that many books though. ;)

  9. GAH!! I can't decide what to read for this one! You've got some great ones on here... ones I envy you reading for the first time...

  10. yay, Sarah Waters! I hope you get around to that one. Also, I was thinking just the other day that I should reread The Book of Lost Things.

  11. I considered putting Faerie Tale on my pile too, I own it. I might still read it anyway, my pool of books is not set in stone! It looks really interesting. I just picked up the first Alan Bradley book, so I'm excited to be starting him soon. I have the first Simon Green, Ghost of a Smile - again, not on my official list, but hanging around the edges trying to slide in! lol

    I second Cath, Sunshine is a good read, one of my favourite vampire novels :-)

    I'm so excited to see Jane Austen on there! yaay! I've read it several times, it's so much fun, I think you will enjoy it. I read Book of Lost Things a few years ago for the challenge and really enjoyed it too.

    Excellent list Kelly, I hope you get to them all!

  12. I'm reading IT, American Psycho, maybe Blindness and maybe Jamaica Inn.

  13. I'd love to get to Shadow of the Wind this RIP but I don't have high hopes. Ha! There are always just too many books to read. Ridiculous though as I have two different copies of the book.

    I read Northanger Abbey many years ago and really enjoyed it. It is a quick read and a fun play on gothic novels.

  14. I listened to The Distant Hours in audio and loved it! I have so much fun with this challenge because it's all the books I enjoy so I can't wait to add to my TBR pile!
