Monday Reading (Oct. 10th, 2011)

In this weekly event hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss what we've been reading this week (and, occasionally, what we haven't).

Well, it is finally autumn here in Europe and that means lots of curling up with novels and tea while watching the leaves fall. Here's what I've been snuggled up with since I last checked in...

Currently reading:
  • Pure by Julianna Baggott - This book is amazing. Insanely amazing. Amazingly amazing. It's terrifying and thought-provoking and just utter genius. I can't wait for everyone to read it!
Recently finished:
  • The Two Towers: Book 3 by J.R.R. Tolkien - I finished the first book in Two Towers, and have decided to set it aside for now. I feel like taking a bit of a break before starting on Frodo and Sam's journey.
  • The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller - Although this started out rather strong,  it ended in a flaming pit of epic terrible. God, this book was just atrocious. I have a lump from all the times I banged the book to my head in complete disbelief. Couldn't have made this stuff up...



  1. Interesting list. Although I can't get into JRR Tolkiens books.

  2. Very diverse! I love it!

    I want to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I have heard great things.

    Lisa's World of Books, It's Monday What Are You Reading?

  3. I just want to hug you for your comments about The Eternal Ones - I felt exactly the same way but really felt as though I was the only one who thought that. It was just horrible. I wanted to like it so much, but, ugh.

    Happy Reading!

  4. Looks like you weren't too happy with the books last week - hope this week is better!

  5. I enjoyed the Eternal Ones. I hope you do too. :)


  6. I haven't read anything by JRR Tolkien either, but did see one of his movies.

    Stop by my It's Monday post if you get a chance.

  7. I read Tolkien's Ring Trilogy in college (many, many years ago!), and really enjoyed it. The movies are fun, too -- a nice visual interpretation. Happy reading this week!

  8. Tolkien is a bit dense. I really enjoyed it though.

    Pure sounds very interesting. Shall have to put it on my list for when it gets published.
