“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.
The price of salt – Patricia Highsmith
I’ve loved everything by Highsmith that I’ve read so far. A little dark, a little odd.
The orphan master’s son – Adam Johnson
I just started on this so I’m not sure what to make of it yet. It’s set in North Korea so that already makes it fascinating!
Leftover birthday cake! The husband bought a delicious opera cake from Cafe Madeline in the city. The layers of chocolate ganache, almond sponge cake and coffee buttercream make for a yummy cake!
Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk. Strong and sweet.
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
Looking forward to:
Some shopping at Lupicia in San Jose for some loose leaf tea.
Last week I read:
The Cloud Searchers (Amulet, #3) – Kazu Kibuishi
The Last Council (Amulet #4) – Kazu Kibuishi
I read these two books in the Amulet series only to realise that my library does not have book 5, Prince of the Elves, so looks like I’ll have to inter-library-loan it!
The girl with the dragon tattoo – Stieg Larsson
I finally have caught up with the rest of the world! It was rather slow-moving at first and I wondered if there was any point to continuing! But I’m glad I did, if only to mark it off my to-read list. Now could someone please tell me if the rest of the series is worth reading? Thanks very much!
