It’s Monday! What are you reading? (July 22 2013)

itsmonday“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.

Ok so I once again forgot that it’s Monday. Where did the weekend go? And for that matter, where has Monday gone already?




The orphan master’s son – Adam Johnson
A fascinating story!


Queen of the air – Dean Jensen
It’s making me want to go to a circus.


Consequences – E.M. Delafield

I felt the need for something less contemporary. Hence this book first published in 1919.



Samosas and vadai (savoury fritters – here’s a recipe for a masala vadai in case you’re interested), from a little Indian supermarket nearby.

Biluochun tea.

Listening to:

What we saw from the cheap seats – Regina Spektor

The album includes this great song, Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)

Orange is the new black
I loved Weeds so this Netflix series by Weeds creator Jenji Kohan is a must-watch!

Looking forward to:
Using my new teapot!

Last week

I read:


The price of salt – Patricia Highsmith

Oh I’m going to have to read everything else by Patricia Highsmith now!


The wind in the willows – Kenneth Grahame
I’ve only read an illustrated children’s version of this, many many moons ago, but I still remember the story well, especially the part where Toad dresses as the washerwoman. It’s such a darling classic story and I’m glad I reread it after all this time.

I posted:

A review about The Whole Fromage: Adventures in the delectable world of French cheese by Kathe Lison
A Weekend Cooking post about sushi and sashimi

What are you reading this week?
