November - What are you reading Mondays?


November is marked by half! This month has flown by. I've not turned too many pages this month, too distracted - holidays, children that demand to be fed, other pursuits, future hand modeling career, you know, basic stuff.

But I did manage to finish this last week -




A classic horror -
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

A brilliantly etched, gripping novel -
Something Wicked This Way Comes - by Ray Bradbury

And a current cult hit -
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - by Stieg Larsson

These were some entertaining reads. I feel thoroughly philosophised! But on to new ventures!

I just started a book mailed to me by the author that I'm really looking forward to -
Intimations of Austen by Jane Greensmith

And continuing on my young adult kick -
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
and
Witchchild by Celia Rees
But what are you reading this month?
Be sure to check out others at J Kaye's book blog!

Great lists! I have not read Ray Bradbury in decades! I have Stieg Larsson's series and I am hoping to get to them over Christmas break.

Interesting list. Frankenstein and Something Wicked are two of my favorites - I love just about anything by Bradbury. Have a great week with your reading! (And with the hand modeling.)

Jennifer - I'm looking forward to the rest in his series. This first one was pretty good. You have a great list too!

Ruth - Yes, they are old aren't they. Big classic reader here. Fun to revisit.

Nina - No Austen's in this bunch. Next week though! I have high hopes for that Greensmith book. Thanks for commenting!
:D

Hey JKaye! Thanks for stopping by! I was a little late with the Halloween reads, chosing to extend it to all through Fall instead? Hmmm..

Jlshall - Loving Bradbury so far. Read his most famous in high school, but would like to revisit again. He had such a way with setting a mood and dialogue especially. Loved that spooky book. Same to you!
