Bit of a Pickle!

I've been in a bit of a Pickle today. I ended up putting IT by Stephen King away. The text is so small it strains my eyes and I'm finding it hard to get 'into' the book. So I've put it away for when I am in the mood to read it. I hate forcing myself to read a book, so rarely do.

Then I went and picked up To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee, and ended up putting that back on the shelf, and then picked up and put back Little Women by Louisa M Alcott. Both are part of the 'Something About Me Challenge', but I don't feel drawn to reading them atm.

So I've decided to read Two books, which I'll take my time with, Garth Nix - Mister Monday, after Marg from Reading Adventures gave it a good review & Joanne Harris - Holy Fools. So far I'm enjoying them. I don't usually read two books at the same time, but feel like doing something different.

I'm in the same mood you are right now. I'm trying to figure out which book to read between Black Swan Green by David Mitchell and The Historian by Elizabeth Kostovo. Maybe I'll try the two book thing.

The Historian is a book I have in the 'Something about me challenge' It has had mixed reviews, some people say it's heavy going while others love it.

I've decided to read two books at the same time, not something I would normally do and I'm enjoying it.

I need to read both of those books and am thinking about getting the Mister Monday series next month. To Kill a Mockingbird was really good (I finished it last night) and I think you will enjoy it when you are in the right mood.

I am currently reading about 3 books on and off!

I was having trouble for a while picking the next book to read - I was making it so complicated!! So I made a list and that's the order I'm reading them in. We'll see how well it works!
