Weekly Meme: Musing Mondays (August 29)

August 29, 2011 20 comments

The weekly Musing Mondays question of the week (via the Should Be Reading blog) is:

This week’s musing is… a book meme!

What was the last book you…
• borrowed from the library?
• bought?
• cried over?
• disliked and couldn’t finish?
• read & loved?
• got for review? (or: got in the mail?)
• gave to someone else?
• stayed up too late reading?



What was the last book you…

  1. Borrowed from the library? Agatha Christie’s The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side (A Miss Marple Mystery) – just for a change of pace versus all the Swedish crime books I had been reading
  2. Bought? Maria V. Snyder’s The Study Series Bundle (Poison Study, Magic Study and Fire Study) – this fantasy series about a condemned prisoner’s adventures was highly recommended to me so I hope it lives up to the hype!
  3. Cried over? Ummm, can’t recall, haven’t read any tear-jerkers lately…
  4. Disliked and couldn’t finish? More than I can list here, but the first to come to mind is Eliot Schrefer’s School for Dangerous Girls – the main character was so unlikable that I just couldn’t make myself care about her story
  5. Read & loved? Terry Pratchett’s I Shall Wear Midnight (Discworld – Tiffany Aching Series) – I treasure all of Pratchett’s books (especially after his Alzheimer’s diagnosis)
  6. Got for review? (or: got in the mail?) I don’t really get any books from publishers for review, I just review whatever I like
  7. Gave to someone else? Well, I can’t really give away a Kindle book, so what I did was this complicated register-deregister maneuver so my friend could get The Strain (Strain Trilogy) by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo Del Toro on his Kindle. I actually thought the novel was so bad, it was almost good – lol, as in it was unintentionally hilarious- I warned my friend about how ridiculous the storyline was (the CDC versus vampires! ), but he’s a die hard Guillermo Del Toro fan (of the Academy Award-winning Pan’s Labyrinth fame) so he still wanted it (but not enough to pay for it)
  8. Stayed up too late reading? What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty – loved this twist on the amnesia plot and couldn’t help but stay up all night to read it!
