It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I read and reviewed Saving Mozart, by Raphael Jerusalmy, last week, and I think I decided to DNF Skippy Dies for now. Maybe I'll pick it back up, maybe not.

I also finished Remember Me Like This, Bret Anthony Johnston's book coming out in May. He is the husband of one of my coworkers, so I can't claim to be objective, but I enjoyed the book a lot and when it comes out I think you will, too, so keep an eye out. I'll review it closer to its release date.

I started Nicola Griffith's pretty amazing Hild this week. It's the story of a young girl in medieval Britain who is bred to become a power player in a brutal and violent society. And she does. The book is detailed, ponderous and slow- not a quick read at all- but I'm really, really enjoying it. It's a long book and one I'll be reading for a while, but I definitely want to stick with it.

In audioland I'm on disc five of Lisbon by Neil Lochery, and my bedside book is still London: A Biography, by Peter Ackroyd.

The London book is the one I am looking forward to reading your views on. It sounds good.

Oooh, the London book got my attention! I'm not sure about the long, detailed book because I'm like 65% into Winter'sTale right now. And boy is that long and detailed! But I'm seeing it through. It totally isn't like anything I normally read, but I'm into it.
