It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hi, blogging friends!



I've had a positive week, reading some great books!

I finished 11/22/63 by Stephen King, which I can highly recommend as a fabulous read!  It only cost $11.99 on ibooks, and was completely worth it! 


I have also just finished reading The Secret Garden. What a joy that was! It is amazing how a little bit of sunshine, friendship and gardening can change people. This story was so inspiring it actually brought me to tears, and I never cry in books! Very uplifting. 

Now I'm going back to some books I picked up recently, but never really got started on, because I was swept away by other stories:





It'll be interesting to see which of these really grabs me this week!

Check out what everyone else is reading here:

  1. I recently read The Secret Garden for the first time...quite a delightful story.

    And I've barely made a dent in 11/22/63 so far, but I'm enjoying it.

    Thanks for visiting my blog...and yes, the abscess doesn't thrill me. It's kind of scary....

    1. I loved how I felt like I was taking the journey myself in 11/22/63. The detailed writing just puts you right in the picture.

      And The Secret Garden was probably the best self-help book I've ever read! :)

  3. Ooh you have great reading taste LOL. The King book is on my TBR mountain, I'm just not ready for a chunkster and The Host is waiting patiently too. Looking forward to your thoughts on it. I really enjoyed Everneath, hope you do too!
    Have a great week and happy reading :)

    1. 11/22/63 didn't even feel like a chunkster to me, it was such a great story and really easy reading.

      I'm not sure about Everneath - it's a bit teenagery. I'll keep going.

  4. You have a lot of great classics this week. Gatsby is one of my favorites and the cover of your edition is so beautiful!

    1. I love this cover of Gatsby too! But it's not my copy, I just borrowed it from Google. I read Gatsby on my iphone. xx

    1. I really loved the Twilight series, so I expect I will enjoy the Host.

      I feel like I've missed out if I don't read bestsellers, which is why I always try to read a mix of the bestsellers of the present and the past.:)

    1. I have mixed feelings about The Great Gatsby. I love the writing style, but I don't really like the characters. I'm going to try watching the movie to see how I feel about them then. :)
