“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
Oh hello Monday.
Just when I was enjoying the brighter mornings, the time change means it’s all dark again at 6. But of course it means that the evenings will remain sunnier for longer, and wee reader can play outdoors more (that is, when he’s feeling better).
And on a bookish note, I have been racing through some reads. It probably helps that some of them have been short and fast-paced, enough to finish in a few days. I think I’ve been constantly pushed by the thought that my due date is now less than two months away!
Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster – Jon Krakauer
I just downloaded this library e-book yesterday, opened it on the Kindle last night before bed, and didn’t want to put it down (despite its sad undertones).
More baths, less talking – Nick Hornby
I forgot how much fun Hornby’s Believer columns can be!
Revenge – Yoko Ogawa
I’m enjoying savouring each short story, and finding that link between them.
Mirror of the world: A new history of art – Julian Bell
An interesting book, but a little heavy going so I can only read a few pages at a time!
What I finished
Feed – MT Anderson
It takes a while to get used to this new world and its lingo but it was a pretty good read!
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking – Susan Cain
Review to come
Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte
Oh I loved this reread. It has been quite a few years since I’ve read Eyre, and I think I was too young at that time to really appreciate it. Definitely a classic to reread again and again!
The Thief – Fuminori Nakamura
I’m still puzzling over how I feel about this book.
What’s up next:
The last letter to your lover – Jojo Moyes
Beautiful Ruins – Jess Walter (ok I really have to start reading this book!)
Last week I reviewed:
Maisie Dobbs – Jacqueline Winspear (for a TLC Book Tour)
Empress – Shan Sa
The Secret of Nightingale Palace – Dana Sachs (for a TLC Book Tour)
What are you reading this week?
