It's Monday, What Are You Reading?


It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.


Read Last Week:



Curse of the Thirteenth Fey by Jane Yolen: A cute look from a different point of view of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. Review up Wednesday.

The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle: I loved this movie as a child, and I still love the story as an adult. Lovely and beautiful. Review up Tuesday.




Reading This Week:

        

History of a Pleasure Seeker by Richard Mason: Book Club is this week, so this book is getting finished!

And when I finish, I will be reading from this group, although I won't get to them all.

The Clover House by Henriette Lazaridis Power: I won this from Librarything, I love the cover.

The Mourning Hours by Paula Treick DeBoard: From Netgalley.

Wild Magic by Cat Weatherill: As part of my homework for work.

  1. Wild Magic looks good to me. I love the mason jar theme in your covers this week! Coincidence?

  2. Curse of the Thirteenth Fey sounds really good! I like fairy tale retellings. I loved The Last Unicorn movie as a kid (though the red bull always scared me badly). I've never read the book and should give it a try sometime.

    1. The Read Bull was scary!! The harpy in the cage freaked me out big time too!

      I am enjoying our fairy tale retelling homework so far!

    1. Me too, fingers crossed on that one! It sounds pretty good, and while it is snowing here, it might be nice to daydream about a sun drenched country.

  12. I loved The Last Unicorn as a kid and reread a few years ago as an adult - still loved it, even if I caught the flaws the last read. I look forward to your review.

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
