MizB of Should Be Reading sponsors this weekly event so we can share what we're reading!
To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
There may seem to be a lot because I haven't done this for a few weeks.
Roots by Alex Haley
I told you this would take me awhile; I just haven't had a lot of time to read! I have passed the halfway point though!
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
This is my October choice for the Celebrate the Author challenge; I thought I should get started on it so that's also cut into my time reading Roots.
Dracula by Bram Stoker
I had a hard time getting into it at first but I am wholeheartedly enjoying this one!
Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff
I read this for the Memorable Memoirs Challenge. I have been intrigued by this since it came out amid all the great reviews. Not knowing anything about Cleopatra, I was excited to read it and was not disappointed!
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
I read this for the 1001 Books You Must Read Challenge. This definitely ranks right up there with one of the strangest books I have read in awhile. I am glad I listened to it on audio because I think I would have gotten lost in the language if I read it in actual book-form. Having said all that, once I got beyond the strangeness of the language and got into the story, I did enjoy it!
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More Stories by Roald Dahl
I read this with my 9 yo son. It was the last book I read for the Celebrate the Author challenge for the month of September. It was a collection of short stories that varied from a hidden treasure to a man who cheats at cards(I'm oversimplifying). The stories were all good.
The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde
I read this for the Celebrate the Author challenge. I was looking through one of those books that is a compilation of "children's literature" from my childhood and found a short story by Oscar Wilde!
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
The Wind in the Willows by Graheme Greene (with my son)
Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe
