It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling BJ how many you visited.

  4. Oh, I love A Room with a View--you make me want to re-read some E.M. Forester. The movie is amazing as well. I have The Buddha in the Attic on my wish list...

  5. A Room with a View was excellent. The movie is here, waiting for me.

    And I also highly recommend Buddha in the Attic. It's beautiful. And poignant.

  6. Deb: I have Buddha in the Attic from the library and plan to read it soon as I'm glad to see it's not too hefty a book, but surprisingly short! The better to enjoy! Have fun this week!

  9. You must have had a great reading week since all of your books got 5 bees. Awesome! I just bought a copy of E.M. Forster's book A Passage to India. I've never read anything by him.

  12. I DID have a great reading week! It's not often that I read three books in a row that are fabulous, five-bee books!

  13. I should probably reread I Am the Messenger so it comes into focus clearer for me. I promote it heavily this time of ear to senior boys who are casting about for something to read and are tired of the girly, or youngish books they have had to read. What do you think of it?

  14. I'd be interested to read I Am the Messenger since I loved The Book Thief so much. I hope you're enjoying it!

  15. What a great reading list! They all look so good. I hope you have a great week!

  16. I Am The Messenger! With all due respect to The Book Thief, this is Zuzak's masterpiece. The first chapter alone is worth the price of admission. I have used this book in the classroom several times and it always impresses the students. I'm excited to read your review!

    Have a great week!
