What Are You Reading Monday? #2

What Are You Reading Monday? is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

My past week or two have been really hectic, especially since I've had a bunch of stressful exams I had to study for... I have, however, finished Mr. Darcy, Vampyre and wrote the review. I am still (!) reading The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe, which I have to rea for school. The problem is not the book itself, although I must admit it's not the most exciting book around, but the fact that I cannot find a physicial copy, which means I'm reading this lengthy book on my laptop. Not pretty.

I am probably going to start reading Philippa Gregory's White Queen one of these days - I am excited about it, so I don't want rush it! I want to enjoy every sentence of it. I have also applied for a huge number of giveaways, and hopefully, I'll see at least a book or two coming my way in the next couple of weeks.

What are you reading Monday?

Good luck with your exams. Haven't read any of the books you've mentioned but heard good things about the White Queen - i have it on my list too

Ooh, I'm curious about Udolpho - not only because it's a classic but because it kept being referred to in 'Northanger Abbey' by Jane Austen. I look forward to your review :)

I can't wait to read the White Queen either - I had it through the post 2 weeks ago but I haven't started it yet. Excitement! :-D

I do hope your exams have gone well for you. I remember those days, and don't envy anyone going through them now.

I am getting ready to start a new book. The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie. I look forward to this read too.

Ah Mr. Darcy, Vampyre looks so good XD And I know what you mean about exams (I have so many to study for ;-; ). Hmm good luck getting through the Radcliffe--I hate reading stuff on my laptop as well.

Jennifer said...

Best of luck on your exams. I want to read The White Queen very badly.

I am off to search for your review of Mr Darcy, Vampire....


I am reading Stray Affections, finishing it up for a blog tour later this week.

With exams, I can't believe you are able to read fiction. You go!

Allison said...

Good luck on the giveaways.. I never win - haha but I join when the book being gave away strikes my interest.

I am torn between wanting to read Mr. Darcy, Vampyre and not wanting to. I may just have to wait a bit on that one. :)

I've been thinking about reading The Mysteries of Udolpho lately, but I'd have to read it on Project Gutenberg, which really can be a pain. I was seriously unthrilled about The White Queen, but I have heard surprisingly good things about it.
