Mailbox Monday & What Are You Reading

 Mailbox Monday was originally hosted by Marcia at the Printed page but now it is a traveling meme. This month it is being hosted by Metroreader.

I bought two books and these cool calendar bookmarks of London. Every month is a new photo of some place in London with a detachable calender so you can use them for years and years. Since I love and collect bookmarks, these are fantastic!
 The Beach - Alex Garland (bought. I love this movie and have heard the book was much better so have to read it)
Cruddy - Lynda Barry (bought. I know nothing about this book, other than the cover intrigues me and good reads had over 2k reviews with an average of 4 stars. Had to give it a shot)









It's Monday. What are you reading this week? Hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books. This is a meme to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finished this week.

Books I finished in the last week:




Books I am reading this week:

The Stranger You Seek - Amanda Kyle Williams
Harbor - John Ajvide Lindqvist (on the back burner for now)
Romeo & Juliet - William Shakespeare (work in progress)

Books to Finish This week:

The Stranger You Seek - Amanda Kyle Williams

Those London calendars sound nifty (okay that's an old term but I couldn't think of another other than cool!).
The Stranger You Seek sounds intriguing.
Enjoy your reading!

Cruddy does have an interesting cover.

This weekend we went on a mini-vacation. Since I was outside enjoying nature, I didn't get much reading done. Please stop by to see what I'm reading now.

The book usually is better than the movie, imho. Enjoy!

I read The Beach years ago, but don't remember that much about it. I think I liked it better than the movie. Have a great week.

Kat Balcombe said...

I read The Beach last year, or maybe 2010, it is a bit different to the movie, so they are equally enjoyable but in different ways. Hope you enjoy it!

Hope you have a great reading week!

I hope you enjoy reading The Beach as much as you did the movie!

I didn't realize The Beach was a book first...the movie was somewhat haunting, I'm curious to see what the book is like.
