It's Monday!

Last week I finished reading Consolation by Anna Gavalda which I will review next week as part of my Paris in July contribution. It's not too late to join in the fun. I reviewed Atonement by Ian McEwan last week and wrote a post about the new books I got via NetGalley here.
Now I am still reading Miss Timmin's School for Girls by Nayana Currimbhoy and The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, which I hope to finish both this week.

Coming up next will be Little Bee by Chris Cleave to be followed by another Jane Austen book. I will either read Northanger Abbey or Persuasion. Which one did you like best? I haven't read either and would love a little help deciding which one to pick. Thanks.

It's Monday! What are you reading is hosted by Sheila from Book Journey.


  1. I've not read either Austen but have always fancied Northanger Abbey over Persuasion. Happy reading either way!

  2. Little Bee is wonderful and I prefer Persuasion over Northanger Abbey, but they are both fantastic. Have a great week and enjoy your reading.
    My Monday:

  3. I hope you'll enjoy Little Bee. I read it a few months ago. I liked it, but found the writing and story a bit too simplistic. But it's an easy read and the story does stay with me.

    Have a good week!

  4. Oh, I love Jane Austen! Persuasion is one of my favorites.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    Have a nice week.


  5. I've read Persuasion and I really enjoyed it. I haven't read Northanger Abbey, so I may not be much help other than saying I liked Persuasion. I'm sure either one will be great... I mean, come on, it's Jane Austen!

  6. I haven't read either one of them yet, but I do have them on my Nook. Enjoy!
