“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.
We had a fun weekend with wee reader, taking him to a historic farm nearby where he got to ride on a horse-drawn train (and didn’t want to get off). Oh and we got new bookshelves for the study! So some of the space will go to the husband’s collection of toys, but whee! New shelves! More space for books! And while I don’t usually buy books, I couldn’t resist popping into the library book sale on Saturday!
Have mother, will travel – Claire and Mia Fontaine
For an upcoming book tour
What was lost – Catherine O’Flynn
Not at all what I expected – but am definitely enjoying this story of a precocious girl playing detective
The eye in the door – Pat Barker
This second book in the trilogy seems rather different (so far – I’ve only just begun) from the first book Regeneration, which I loved. So while I’m a bit unsure of it at the moment, I’m still going ahead
Robinson Crusoe – Daniel Defoe
Eh. One of those classics that one should read. It’s really just so-so a read. But onward…
What I’m looking forward to:
Warmer weather – it’s been here and there these past few days, but this week promises to be nice and sunny!
Mirror of the World: A New History of Art – Julian Bell
I finally finished this mammoth book!
The year of pleasures – Elizabeth Berg
Review to come
Birds of a feather (Maisie Dobbs #2) – Jacqueline Winspear
Winspear just gets better with this book. I enjoyed it a lot more than Maisie Dobbs, the first in the series.
Alif the Unseen – G. Willow Wilson
A rather different book.
Late For Tea At The Deer Palace: The Lost Dreams of My Iraqi Family – Tamara Chalabi
Review to come
Nick and Norah’s infinite playlist – Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Hmmm somehow I seem to remember liking the movie more than I liked reading this book.
What are you reading this week?
