What Are You Reading Monday
It's Monday! What Are You Reading has been taken over by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books. It looks like she's got some new tricks up her sleeve, so go check her out!

Finished:  Link to my review

Soulless by Gail Carriger--Loved it! 5 stars!

Currently Reading:  Remaining links will go to GoodReads descriptions

World Without End by Ken Follett--I'm enjoying it, but it feels awfully similar to his earlier book, The Pillars of the Earth

Up Next:

World Without End is a monster, so I'm not sure if there will be time for another book this week!  I'm about halfway through the 1014 pages.   If I have time, I might pick up Lirael: Daughter of the Clayr for one of my GoodReads groups. Or I might read Persuasion, which I've never read, but it's waiting patiently for me right here at home.

What are you reading this week?

  2. 1041 pages is scary. You are a better reader than I. I just finished Soulless too.

  3. I have Soulless also. I hope to get to it real soon. I might have to sneak it in between review books. Have a great reading weeks.

  5. I've seen mixed reviews of Soulless, glad you liked it. I've got Lirael to read too, one for the Aussie author challenge. Looking forward to your review of World Without End :-)
    Have a great week!

  6. You're the second person I have seen mention Soulles, I am glad that you enjoyed it!

    I nearly bought Pillars of the Earth on SUnday (but I purchased New Moon instead!), can't wait to read your review.

    Here's my Its Monday! post if you want to have a look

  7. I have World Without End on my bookshelf and I must admit the size has prevented me from picking it up yet. Hope you have a great week and I look forward to your review.

    Have a great week!

  12. I've got Soulless too and can't wait to begin reading it.

    Happy reading to you.

  13. I would like to read World Without End. Persuasions is an absolutely delightful book and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the years. Happy reading. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/02/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-8.html

  14. Pick Persuasion. You can never go wrong with Jane Austen in my opinion. As for Soulless, I've been watching it through the book blogging world for weeks now and every time someone mentions that they read it I just want to read it more myself. It was just added to my Library list of TBR books.

    Happy reading this week!

  15. These sound good! I know what you mean, though, about some books consuming a lot of time! I've had a few of those.

    My week:

  16. Glad to hear you liked Soulless! Good luck tackling that monster this week :)

  17. keep on going with the Follett. It's really good -- I liked it a lot.

  18. Read Persuasion!!! Now! I have read P&P more than any other book in my life, but Persuasion is a close second. It's certainly different than P&P, more serious and slow-burning, but so fantatic. And Capt. Wentworth will be your new literary crush. Promise.

  19. I just got Soulless too, I've been on the waiting list for a while now. Then I received a few review books in the mail today so I will have to read it in between those. I'm looking forward to it though.

  20. Wow! A 1000+ page novel is quite an undertaking. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. 1014 pages - wow, impressive! A number of people have recommended Ken Follett to me but I am not sure I can undertake something that long!

  22. I have soulless on my shelf waiting to be read!

  23. People raved about Pillars and when I read it, I found it okay but maybe my expectations were too high so in that end, I've yet to read World Without End. The size is also daunting. Good luck with Pillars, hope you enjoy!

  24. Hi, came over from One Person's Journey (via Mr Linky).

    I've been reading Three Days to Dead, (Kelly Meding). I usually stick to urban fantasy.

    This book you're reading right now, World without End, what genre is it? I've read a few 1000+ page books - usually they're worth the read.

  25. I love your review on Soulless! Hope that your reading week will be as fun as the past. Have a pleasant day =)

  26. Wow, thanks for stopping by everyone!

    Mardel, World Without End is historical fiction. It's very good, it's just been slow-going because it's been a very busy week.

    I hate to disappoint you Misty, but I think I'm going to have to put in some brain candy after this one. I promise I'll try to read Persuasion after that!

  27. Hope you are enjoying World Without End! I haven't read it yet, but plan to when I can bring myself to read a huge tome!
