It's Monday - What are you reading?


This is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.


Last week I predicted that I had a cold coming. Well.. It arrived. ;") For that I did only a very little reading.


So my entry is very similar to my last entry to this meme. Hopefully I am back again soon with very astonishing choices.. ;")

For my reading group I read presumably till the end of February:

MANSFIELD PARK by Jane Austen

for I know I am the fastest reader in our group - well, we're a small group.. - I read only a few pages and thought: I am going to read the rest of the aimed pages on the weekend. Uhm.. WRONG! I laid flat on my couch an cats were running over my almost death body. (I think, I fed them - otherwise they would have started nibling my fingers, I guess..) well, now I have to catch up a good deal. But: Hey! It's Jane Austen!! There could indeed be worse things to do. :")
This week I read
WITH BILLIE by Julia Blackburn

Next week or sooner I am going to read:

ALL-NIGHT PARTY : THE WOMEN OF BOHEMIAN GREENWICH VILLAGE AND HARLEM, 1913- 1930 by Andrea Barnet (this is the German cover with the very truthfull translated German title: CRAZY NEW YORK - don't ask me.. - but don't you love the cover?? I would love this as a poster!!)

This will actually be a re-read. This book is soooo amazing! :")

  2. Would you believe that I have yet to read a Jane Austen novel? I am almost ashamed of myself... I hope to read Pride and Prejudice soon, and if I like it I will look up her other novels.

    Hope you are feeling better soon!

  4. Thank you, Jennifer!

    Aww! Thanks a lot, Hilde! :") Comments like your's make me feel better, too. ;") I hope you'll enjoy Pride and Prejudice!! Actually I read it several times - instead of exploring some other works of her.. But I am catching up. I read her books in the sequence of the release - I am now at No.3. ;")

    Hej, Bev! I hope you'll enjoy Mansfield Park more than you did Emma! ;")

  5. Interesting books! Mansfield Park is one of the Austen books I haven't read yet, but it's definitely on my TBR list. Hope you're feeling better and getting lots of reading done soon.

  7. Hope you feel better! Pride & Prejudice is definitely my favourite (although I loved the TV drama of Mansfield Park even with Billie Piper in it!)

  9. Thank you all!

    Misha:
    actually I am not very far.. The story has not really begun yet. But I do like it.

    Auntie Weaze:
    I like Billy Piper.. *blush* ;") And I did like the Edward from this version very much. ;")(Can't remember his name now - and I am to lazy to look it up.. Is it Blake Ritson? hm..)
    Do you know the 1999version? I like Frances O'Connor very much - but Johnny Lee Miller is not my kind of "prince charming".. ;")

  11. Guten Tag, Anja Kasap! :")

    Great to meet another fan of hers here! :") I liked it very much - but think that it isn't a book to start with. ;")
