“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up. I found it up on Alita’s blog and occasionally like to play along…
Finished: Jane Eyre This was a re-read for bookclub. I’m not sure I enjoyed it as much the second time around, but still a great book!
Started Reading: Stephanie Meyer’s The Host – July’s bookclub book. Ok, I’m just going to confess something here – sometimes I’m a book snob and it has never been more clear to me than when this book was chosen for bookclub. I was totally against it – yes, just because Meyer wrote the Twilight books, which, no, I have not read. Then I read the summary for The Host and thought that it was definitely not for me. But, Jenn, promised it was a good book and I don’t know if Jenn has ever steered me wrong in a book suggestion before and the whole point of bookclub is to read books I wouldn’t normally pick out on my own, so I decided to go ahead, bite the bullet and read it. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to dislike a book more (lots of books I really want to like then don’t, but rarely do I not want to like a book), well, Jenn was right – I’m halfway through it and totally enjoying it – aliens or not, it’s been a pretty good read so far. I’m humbled and will try not to be too snobish from now on.
Up next: Not sure yet…we’ll see how quickly I finish The Host!
