MAILBOX MONDAY/IT'S MONDAY! WHAT ARE YOU READING?

Nothing new came into my Mailbox but I am trying to play catch up. I am expecting a whole lot of
new reads tomorrow but that will go into next week's Mailbox.

Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Suko's Notebook for December.




This meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I started on Ken Follett's book



Its 1000 odd pages and I am now in the mid 600s. Its absolutely fantastic. An amazing read so far. A mix of Wolf Hall and Sarah Dunant styles!!!! Everything else has got kept aside - Michael Ondaatjie and Julian Rathbone are still half done only.

Hi Mystica,

I have read a couple of the older and much thinner Ken Follett books, although this was many years ago.

I'm afraid that I am just not tempted by these huge tomes that he has recently taken to writing, although I understand from friends and colleagues that they are fantastic reads.

If you really did enjoy 'Pillars Of The Earth', they do say that the sequel 'World Without End', is even better.

Hav a good week,

Yvonne

I find it hard to read a really huge book when I've got big stacks everywhere...lol. But often those are the most memorable reads. Enjoy! And thanks for visiting my blog.

Pat @ Post For Now said...

Enjoy!

A catch up week is good, especially since you're reading Follett - it'll take a while to read that chunkster!

I haven't read The Pillars of the Earth, but did read the first in his newest trilogy, Fall of Giants. I enjoyed it a lot, and am looking forward to the 2nd in the trilogy, as soon as I can get it from the library.

The Pillars of the Earth is one of the best books in the entire world..in my little opinion anyway ;)

Have a great week of reading!

Suko said...

The Pillars of the Earth sounds like a must-read book! Thanks for doing Mailbox Monday!

Marie said...

Some day I'll read a Follett book. Glad you are enjoying it! Here is my post.

Holly said...

Just read Pillars of the Earth last month and I agree-it is fantastic. I've got the second one World Without End on my reading list for 2013. Have a great week!

I've got that on my iPad so it isn't so heavy. I've read part of it but I had this feeling of doom for all the characters. I felt so bad for them that I had to put it aside.

readingdate said...

I like catch up weeks too, and it looks like you're busy with Pillars! Glad you're enjoying it.

Yvonne said...

I never read this author. I must admit, the amount of pages is intimidating to me :) I'm glad you are enjoying it.

Holly (2 Kids and Tired) said...

I've heard lots of good things about Pillars, but have just never picked it up. I may have to!

The Pillars of the Earth is definitely a page turner, glad you are enjoying it.

Melissa @ Confessions of an Avid Reader said...

Pillars is one of my all-time favourite novels so I'm glad to read that you are enjoying it.

Brooke from The Bluestocking Guide said...

I was thinking about picking this one up.

Here is mine

Sarah Williams said...

So glad you are loving Pillars, I did too! So much better than many books a third the size

Prashant C. Trikannad said...

Mystica, you have been teasing me with Ken Follett and I'm tempted to read any one of his books just for old time's sake. I have three half-read books and they are all classics I ought to have read some 25 years ago.

Jo @ Booklover Book Reviews said...

Pillars sounds like something I'd enjoy but it's size is very imposing... One day...

Marie said...

I'm so glad you're enjoying this! I've never read Follett but he's so popular!

The Brunette Librarian said...

Ken Follett's books are a major read - huge but definitely engrossing. :D

Have a wonderful reading week! Whatcha readin' this week @ the Brunette Librarian :)

Laura Fabiani said...

I have not read any books by Ken Follett, although one of my friends loves his book and has highly recommended them. Glad you're really enjoying it!

Anna said...

I've heard good things about that one. I want to read his WWII trilogy, but they are tomes!
