Monday Round Up (08.16.10)

August 15, 2010

Library Loot is hosted by Claire at The Captive Reader and Marg at Reading Adventures.

I’ve loosened by ban requirements a bit and am now allowing myself to borrow from the library again every now and then. This past week was my first visit to the library in months and it was lovely.

I picked up:
One Day by David Nicholls
84, Charing Cross Road (1986) [Sweet movie, but of course not as charming as the book]

“It’s Monday What Are You Reading” 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.

Finished: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling *review to come*

However, I did post my thoughts on Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier last week.

Currently Reading: One Day by David Nicholls

Up next: Likely Heat Wave by Richard Castle. I feel like I need something nice and light, plus I want to make sure I read it before the next season of Castle starts up. After that, it’s on to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

What are you reading? Did any new books find their way into your possession?

    Your thoughts on Rebecca have me SO ANXIOUS to start my copy. I own two Daphne du Maurier books and cannot wait to read them.

    The style sounds VERY similar to Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White – you should check it out. I bet you’d love it as well!

    I just finished One Day yesterday. Not sure how I feel about it yet. Still trying to formulate a review. Good luck with it!

    Rebecca is one of my all time favorite books.

    Have a great reading week.

    Here is my review:

    The Harry Potter series is the only YA series I have truly liked. I should go back and re-read them. Have a wonderful week reading. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/08/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-8.html
