It's Monday! August 15th

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date. I haven't participated for a few weeks, so there will be a lot of books mentioned in this post :)
Books finished since last post:
Poems of John Milton, selected and edited by Claire Tomalin. I quite enjoyed this book, at least the bits that I could understand :)

Surprised by Oxford by Carolyn Weber. I did enjoy this a lot, although it didn't quite live up to my (admittedly very high) expectations.

Miriam by Mesu Andrews. This was alright. Read my review here.
Love, Nina by Nina Stibbe. An entertaining read.
A Cathedral Courtship by Kate Douglas Wiggin. Review here.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling. I actually really enjoyed this, although it was different to the series.

Monks-Hood by Ellis Peters. This was the third book in the Brother Cadfael series, and I enjoyed it just as much as the last one.

Currently reading:
Lark Rise to Candleford by Flora Thompson. I really need to get around to finishing this!
Penelope's English Experiences by Kate Douglas Wiggin. I'm finding this entertaining, but not as much as her other books that I've read.

On the Loose by Jenny B. Jones. I've had this on my Kindle for ages and not got around to it, but I am enjoying it a lot.

What Matters in Jane Austen? by John Mullan. I've only read the first few chapters of this, but I'm finding it interesting so far.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer. This is different to what I usually read but I'm enjoying it a lot so far.
What I plan to read next:
Five Magic Spindles by various authors
The Wouldbegoods by E. Nesbit
Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne
Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Growing Summer by Noel Streatfeild

I haven't posted for a while since I've been pretty busy lately, but I'm hoping to post a bit more over the next couple of weeks.
