It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
I’m still reading this month’s book club pick, The Wonder by Emma Donoghue. I’m making slow progress despite enjoying what I’ve read so far. I’d attribute this in equal parts to my attention span being pretty poor, especially when the kids are home, and the fact that the book chapters are awfully long which seems to feel especially daunting when my kindle tells me how many more minutes I have to go before the end of the chapter. In spite of this, I’m finding the story fascinating and I’m eager to see where the plot will go.
If you haven’t heard of the book before – here’s a quick blurb about the book from Goodreads.com:
“Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O’Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale’s Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl.“
