“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.
Alif the unseen – G. Willow Wilson
A rather different read, but pretty interesting so far.
The Year of Pleasures – Elizabeth Berg
A library e-book (Kindle version). I’m just loving Berg’s writing.
The elephant’s journey – Jose Saramago
Mirror of the World: A New History of Art – Julian Bell
Erm, yes, still.
Late for Tea at the Deer Palace
A fascinating memoir about a family’s century in Iraq. I’m loving it so far!
Looking forward to:
Getting over my cough and finally getting a good night’s sleep – it’s close… I can feel it!
More home cooking from my mum. We picked up some pomfret from the Asian supermarket last night. I love steamed pomfret!
What I read last week:
Wide Awake (Fairest #1) – Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges
It’s been a while since I’ve read a Bill Willingham graphic novel – sadly, my library doesn’t have a complete collection of Fables – so it was fun.
Regeneration – Pat Barker
A bit of a heavy read, but an excellent one.
A prayer for Owen Meany – John Irving
I spent the first quarter of this long book trying to figure out whether I should keep reading this. In the end, Owen Meany won me over (I didn’t quite like the adult Johnny Wheelwright).
What are you reading this week?
