It’s Monday What Are You Reading? (2)

What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.

Hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey

I didn’t get to do this last week as I was STILL reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin and it took me 12 days. Since reading After Dark by Murakami I’ve been suffering from a bit of book block where my reading just slows down and I get highly distracted – mainly by this blog actually!

So since Monday 31st May I have been reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

Yesterday I started Stardust by Neil Gaiman. It is my second book by this author – my first being American Gods which I did not like very much. I gave it two stars in fact, but I always said that I would give him another chance.

So, recently I got persuaded by several people that Neil Gaiman ia awesome and I should read Stardust. So here I am.

So far I can say I like it, it is better then American Gods but I’m reserving any further opinion until I get to the end.

I don’t know what  I have coming up after Stardust, but I have a feeling I might choose something with gritty realism.


  1. Wow you are very ambitious. I tried reding Harriet Beecher Stowe, but never finished the book. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks Jan. She isn't the best of authors but she has passion.

  3. I will have to admit that I am not a Gaiman fan. I just can't get into his style or voice. I hope you like Stardust. Happy reading!

  4. I have not read Gaiman. Hope Stardust comes through for you. :)

  5. I've read a couple by Gaiman and enjoyed them. I have not read Stardust yet.

  6. I really like the title of American Gods and thought it'd be an amazing book. :D We'll see how amazing it is when I read it one day.

    Stardust was okay for me too but I prefer the movie.

    Happy reading!

  7. I love Neil Gaiman. I really liked Neverwhere.
