It's Monday! What are you Reading?

I'm playing along with Sheila's Bookjourney to let you know my latest reads. I've read the three books I said I would read, along with one other, "The Virgin Blue" by Tracy Chevalier. What a fantastic read that was! Actually I still have a few more chapters of "Jessica" by Bryce Courtney  to read, and then I will have read these 4 books.

They were all great reads, particularly The Virgin Blue and Jessica, which I will give 5 stars each. 

Now that I've read three Australian books ( and a French one thrown in for good measure!) I've decided to read some well-known English books:

Emma by Jane Austen

These are all on the Dymocks Top 100 list, so I'm sure they'll be brilliant. I've not read any of them before, and I haven't even seen any of the movies based on the books either. Oh, hold on, I may have seen Mists of Avalon, and perhaps the beginning of Possession.

Let me know if you can think of any good novels about ghosts - I really love them and need some recommendations. Some of my favourites include  "Second Glance" by  Jodi Picoult, and "Midnight is a Lonely Place" by Barbara Erskine.
I've even started to write a story about ghosts!
Check out what everyone else is reading at Sheila's Bookjourney xx
