Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Same goes for me.  Mostly I've been reading stuff for my classes at university (not that I'm complaining, I enjoy it most of the time) and then over the breaks I'll pick up a book of mine that I haven't read yet or get whatever I feel like reading at the library.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Just finished to read "Call me by your name"  by André Aciman (2007) and now awaiting the movie . The book is good, the movie should be good as well, according to a few reviews I managed to find.
Now I ordered some new books, by E.M. Forster and Christine Wunnicke (whom I adore a lot).

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I am always pleased when someone resurrects this thread...I suspect I have a lot to catch up on, as usual!
Well I loved Around the world in 80 days.
I then read another Chris Brookmyre(read tons of his).
Then a collection of scifi short stories edited by Asimov and they were great.
I am just about to finish my first Kafka: a collection of short stories, including Metamorphosis.
To my shame, I've never actually read a full Forster.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

There is nothing to "shame" , dear besleybean!
The world is full of great books, so we only can try to read what we would like to.
I love reading, sometimes I reread my favourite books just because of the melancholic mood of missing them. 😊

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I really want to read Forster.
My sister did her dissertation on him.
I read everyday.
But like you say: so many books, too little time.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Now I have certainly a "Wunnicke" -month!

After her wonderful new novel "Katie"- absolutely worth to read, London a.D.1870, chemical experiments and a ghost of the daughter (or sometimes son) of the pirate Capitain Morgan - I started with " The Fox and Doctor Shimamura" and the next one will be "Jetlag"!
💃

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Thank you, chance to catch up again.
I am reading a Scottish classic: 
Not such a famous author, but she is local to this county, so I know all of the places she's writing about.
It's actually two volumes combined, so it's taking me ages!
First off I read the collection of short stories Tales from Angus, by Violet Jacob and now I'm reading the attached novel of hers: Flemington.
It's all Jacobite stuff, so dead exciting.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I always find it cool when I know a place that is mentioned in a book I'm reading. I remember my mum had a couple of those moments when she was reading a series of Swedish mystery novels after she had been on a trip to Sweden. In one of them, there's a police chase down the street right in front of the hotel where she stayed in Stockholm.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I am reading "How to stop time" - not just for obvious reasons but also because I read and enjoyed Matt Haig's "The Humans". I really love this new novel and I can imagine Benedict breaking our hearts in this all over again. A wonderful tale about time and love and loss. I am nearly through and hope so much that in the end all will be well ...

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Absolutely unexpected for myself I'm reading a very new German crime novel  by Klaus Peter Wolf "Totenstille im Watt". I read an extract being in train and then bought the book immediately at the station as I arrived.  Quite pleasant reading, I admit.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

How many volumes are there? Which authors have you encountered so far?

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Only 2 volumes, this first one is 1900-1956.
The more famous authors are:M R James(Have read a collection of theirs).
HG Wells(only thing I've ever read by him, quite liked it).
John Galsworthy(can't even remember that one!)
Dorothy L Sayers( my 1st for her and again I seem to have instantly forgotten it!)
Frank O'Connor(a couple of his, quite quirky)
Somerset Maugham(I've read a collection of his before including one of these...couldn't remember the end of it!)
Hugh Walpole(my first of his and my favourite so far)
Dylan Thomas(my first, but exactly how I imagined his writing to be!...whimsical)
Walter-de-la-mare(Only knew his poetry before and I seem to recall it is as odd as this story was!)
Evelyn Waugh(my first for him, though I think I'd rather read his novels.)
Graham Greene(haven't got to this one yet, but I have read 'The Power and The glory'.)
V.S Pritchett...least I think I know who that is, there are 2 of his to conclude the volume.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I think we did The Power and The Glory at school.  It was probably a bit too mature for a bunch of 14 year olds, or whatever we were then.  I preferred Brighton Rock at the time.  I used to love Graham Greene,  Somerset Maugham and Evelyn Waugh .. haven't read any for years.   But I do re-read "The Outing" by Dylan Thomas every now and then as it's one of my favourite short stories.  So many great lines!

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I just read "The Temple" by Stephen Spender, an interesting autobiographic account of his time in Germany in the late 1920s and early 1930s and his relationship with W.H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood. 
Now I just started "By Gaslight", a novel by Steven Price.
