“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.
I had fun at my first ever readathon last week and somehow managed to blog nearly every day, with the exception of Saturday when I was out of the house for most of the day. I’m hoping to continue to read more, and eventually finish that little pile of books I made for the readathon.
As usual I have a lot of books going at once. Some are upstairs, at my little ‘nursing station’ set up for the baby and another on the nightstand, and a couple more are downstairs scattered around….!
It’s Sunday evening, nearly 530pm. The house is quiet as everyone (the husband, the visiting in-laws, Wee Reader) have popped out to get groceries. The baby is dozing for now in the bassinet. And I’m at the kitchen table, blogging as fast as I can!
Skylark Farm – Antonia Arslan
A bit hard to read, taking a long time to get through this little book.
The Whole Fromage: Adventures in the Delectable World of French Cheese – Kathe Lison
Parts of it are more detailed than I expected!
Cold Milo (a kind of chocolate malt drink that seems to be more popular in places like Singapore, Malaysia, Australia than in the US. A little like Ovaltine/Horlicks, if you know what those are)
A Stroopwafel warmed up slightly in the microwave
Well the husband was watching the Wimbledon final earlier. Oddly I haven’t really been watching much… actually anything (!) this week!
Looking forward to:
My birthday later this week! Plus I ordered some books with a little birthday money my mum gave me before she went back to Singapore, so I’m waiting for the shipment to arrive! I never buy books (I’m a fan of the library) so it’s a little treat for myself 😛
Last week I read:
Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
I quite enjoyed this one, as I wondered what the Amazing Amy and her husband Nick would come up with next!
Cod – Mark Kurlansky
Ok so I skipped some paragraphs here and there, but there were some interesting moments plus those old recipes for cod were quite fascinating!
Last week I reviewed
