Meme: Musing Mondays

Posted 29 June, 2009 by Li in Meme / 1 Comment

I missed last Monday’s because I was busy so I’m doing this a bit early this time, lol:

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about mid-year reading…

Now that we’ve come to the middle of the year, what do you think of your 2009 reading so far? Read anything interesting that you’d like to share? Any outstanding favourites?

Just One More Page

I think my reading list has been pretty good so far, as of today I’ve read a total of 62 books this year (partly as a result of my constant-reading mode last month after exams, lol). The books I’ve read so far have been interesting and some have been pretty different from what I’m used to reading. I’ve managed to get around to reading the books that I’ve been meaning to read for some time (i.e. Catch-22, the remainder of the Abhorsen trilogy, etc.) and discovered some amazing novels along the way (i.e. The Spanish Bow, Elantris, The Shadow of the Wind, etc.). Outstanding favourites that I’d like to share, (to roll the two questions into one, hehehe)…

  • Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s The Shadow of the Wind
  • Federico Garcia Lorca’s Selected Verse (collection of poetry)
  • Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief
  • Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris
  • Andromeda Romano-Lax’s The Spanish Bow
  • Anna Gavalda’s Hunting and Gathering (I prefer the original title though,Ensemble C’est Tout)
