It’s Monday What Are You Reading?


It’s been … a while since I did one of these posts. Or, looking at my blog, any post. Whoops.

Anyway. At the moment, I’m reading Northern Lights, book one of His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. It’s a re-read for me, and it’s just as emotionally trying as the first time around. I do love it, though.

I’ve also still got The Sunne in Splendour on the go, though it has been a while since I picked it up, but I have good Intentions.

I picked up a book on iBooks that had an interesting premise and is the first in a series: The Gauguin Connection by Estelle Ryan. It’s a mystery series featuring an insurance investigator who is also a body language expert. Promising start, anyway.

Up next, hopefully, is The Girl on the Train, because it’s due back at the library on Saturday, and possibly Witches Abroad, by Mr Sir Terry Pratchett.

So. What are you reading?

  1. remember reading compulsively through the P Pullman series, loved some of the books better than others. Admire you for the rereads as it does help to really savour a book.
    Nice to have another New Zealander on the meme.

  3. I've only ever read the first in the series of His Dark Materials... I'm terrible at continuing with series.

    I hope you enjoy The Girl on the Train - I've heard so much goodness about it. Happy Reading!

  7. See now, I was completely absorbed by the His Dark Materials books the first time through, and then I've never wanted to reread them at all. Maybe it's a question of just DOING it; maybe if I picked up the first one and got started, all the fun of the books would come rushing back to me. Are you excited for the TV miniseries they're doing of the books? (I AM.)
