Its Monday what are you reading this week?

Hosted by Sheila
Well, this has been my slowest reading week so far this year. I have only managed to read 2 books! HOWEVER, this does take me to 20 books so far this year, so I think that is quite good. I am a fifth of my way through the 100 books challenge.
The first book I read was Having the builders in by Reah Tannahill. Real, light easy reading and funny! One that you can pick up and put down with ease, just what I need at the moment.
The second book was the total opposite! When will there be good news? by Kate Atkinson.  I last read her books a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed them. I enjoyed the story line on this one, I liked all the small threads and the fact that they were tied up in the end. I loved the characters, but I didnt like the way you never seemed to get anywhere with the story line until the end! All in all I enjoyed it, but I dont think it is one I would read again if that makes sense!
That is all for last week, and I have just started The girl with the dragon tattoo, cant remember the author.

Well, two books in a week sounds good to me! I'd love to be able to read 100 books a year, but I'm the world's slowest reader. I was interested in your thoughts on the Atkinson book, since I've got that one coming up soon. Enjoy your reading this week!

Having The Builders In sounds funny! I like those reads occasionally.

Good job on the 20 books! I look forward to your post next week!

Two books sounds good to me, too. 20 is impressive.

Hi Tracy - two books is good especially if you enjoy them! :) I hope you had a good week this week.
