This week’s Musing Mondays from Should Be Reading asks…
“What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?”
It’s been a while since I have stayed up half the night reading something. I use to do that a lot as a teenager. But now as a working person my sleep is very dear to me. The last book I had trouble putting down was a collection of detective short stories compiled by Philip Pullman called simply Detective Stories. It was a great read for a mystery buff like me. I enjoyed it a lot!
I’m trying to be more disciplined not staying up too late reading as well. If only I went to bed earlier then I’d probably get more reading time in!!! Detective Stories sounds good though – I’m enjoying have a short story collection on the go, alongside a novel – that way I feel like I’m making a bit of progress!!
My work won’t let me stay up after bedtime! I have to leave the house before 6.30 a.m. if I am to make it to work before 9. So, I have to be in bed at a certain time or else I’d find myself snoozing at work. 😉
I love reading short stories! Mystery is my favourite genre so it’s a no-brainer that I love the book Detective Stories so much.
