What are you reading on Mondays? - 4 May


It’s Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event held by J.Kaye’s Book Blog.

Last week I only managed to read two titles: The Cellist of Sarajevo and the Gashlycrumb Tinies. Both reviews are not up yet cause I’ve been oh-so-busy with the wedding plans. The Cellist of Sarajevo was a good read but I thought the Gashlycrumb Tinies was a bit morbid.

This week, I’m hoping to do a bit more reading. I’ve started reading Emma for my Themed Reading Challenge and doing good so far. If I manage to finish Emma on time, I’ll try and read Isolation a book which I just purchased at the MPH book sale. 
 
I’ve selected The Gift of Magi by O. Henry for my weekly short story and I’ve also just registered with DailyLit which I think is absolutely cool. My first subscription from Daily Lit starts tomorrow with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

That's it! Happy reading y’all!

I love Daily Lit! :)
It's such a great web site - very convenient, especially when I'm at work, haha.

I think you need to have a macabre sense of humour to appreciate Edward Gorey. I love his drawings.

The Cellist of Sarajevo looks good. I hope my libary has a copy.

You have good choices for this week.

Anna- I know! Now I can read in the office and ppl will think I'm just catching up on an email... woohooo!

Rebecca- I have to say his drawings are good. Have you seen the Youtube version?

Lisa- thanks for stopping by!

I read The Gift of the Magi in a book I bought through Amazon for like $1.50 with all of O.Henry's short stories. If you ever get the chance read them all - he is fantastic and he has these twists at the end of each story that are great!
