Who’s Reading What: November 2009

27 November, 2009

I thought it would be an interesting exercise to survey what people were reading around me. As I’m lazy, I’ll just question the people who I happen to talk to at the time. So it’ll be random friends and family. As they are all very different from me and have varied reading tastes, it should be an interesting list – and who knows what surprising recommendations we’ll uncover. I won’t name names, just the titles. I was hoping to make this a monthly thing but realised I don’t actually talk books with that many people … but I’m working on it. Enjoy.

This month my school friends whom I have known for over 20 years have been reading:

A Snowball in Hell by Christopher Brookmyre
The Murder Room by P.D. James
The Last Pope by Luis Miguel Rocha
Labyrinth by Kate Mosse
The Host by Stephanie Meyer
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

Out of these books, I’ve read the 2nd, 4th and 6th books and have the 5th in my TBR pile.

    I have read Memoirs of a Geisha and absolutely loved it. I want to read some P.D James but need to start at the beginning of her works (its a strange thing I have to do). Labyrinth is on my TBR and The Host could well be soon, after becoming a slight Twilight convert of late. I really like the idea of this post.

      It’s a great idea isn’t it? I’m always curious about what everyone is reading so I thought I’d just be nosy and ask. Labyrinth didn’t really do much for me, but I loved reading about the Carcassone and the Cathars. And I can’t wait to read The Host.
