“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney to share with others what we’ve read the past week and planning to read next
What? It’s Monday already? I felt like I had just woken up on a Sunday morning and made myself some scrambled eggs and toast. Instead it is before 7 on Monday, the husband has left for work (he takes the Bart to the city, a nearly one-hour trip), wee reader is up in bed but will be up soon (I get him around 730 but he’s likely woken up by the garage door). Breakfast for me: homemade raisin bread. Breakfast for him: cereal (probably Rice Krispies) with milk.
Mirror of the World: A New History of Art – Julian Bell
A very heavy book! Don’t know much about art history, trying to change that.
Beautiful Ruins – Jess Walter
For an upcoming book tour (well I haven’t touched this much the past few days, but it’s there!)
Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte
A reread on the Kindle. A nice change of pace.
The daughter of time – Josephine Tey
Interesting story, a kind of Henry III whodunnit, but I really need to go figure out my knowledge of European history (i.e. very very little!)
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking – Susan Cain
A pretty good read so far.
What I finished reading
Real World – Natsuo Kirino
Was a little disappointed by this one. Will hopefully write about it soon enough.
Empress – Shan Sa (review to come)
Thirty Three Teeth (Dr Siri Paiboun #2) – Colin Cotterill
The Dr Siri series is a lot of fun!
Last week I reviewed:
