It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?’ is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
Hello book lovers! I hope you had fabulous week. Mine was comparatively better than last week. Life is getting in way lot these days. Some days I keep reading blog feeds, some days I read and write posts and some days I get visitors who will stay at least for 2 to 3 hours. Well, those who love to socialize don’t mind visitors, like my parents, but I’m not that much into it. I like limited social time, rest of the time I want for myself.
Last week I read and reviewed-
I finished almost 60% of the book.
Next This Week-
Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Missing Scarab by Columbkill Noonan
Barnabas Tew is a private detective struggling to survive in his trade in Victorian London. Fearing that he is not as clever as he had hoped to be, he is plagued by a lack of confidence brought on in no small part by his failure to prevent the untimely deaths of severaof his clients.
Matters only get worse when Anubis, the Egyptian God of the Dead, is referred to Barnabas by a former client (who perished in a terribly unfortunate incident which was almost certainly not Barnabas’ fault). Anubis sends for Barnabas (in a most uncivilized manner) and tells him that the scarab beetle in charge of rolling the sun across the sky every day has been kidnapped, and perhaps dismembered entirely.
The Land of the Dead is in chaos, which will soon spill over into the Land of the Living if Barnabas – together with his trusty assistant, Wilfred – cannot set matters to right. Pulled from his predictable (if unremarkable) life in Marylebone, Barnabas must match his wits against the capricious and dangerous Egyptian gods in order to unravel the mystery of the missing beetle and thereby save the world.
This sounds my kind of book and I’m so excited to read it.
