It’s Monday! What are you reading? (29 July 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.


(it’s 6.18 on Sunday morning, I’m typing this on my phone while lying in bed, having gotten up 45 minutes ago to feed the baby – and three hours before that at 230. He’s been doing this 6-7 h stretch for several weeks now but since his last feed is at 8, it means I’m in bed by 930 in order to get myself a good long stretch of sleep too! I’m just looking forward to the day when I get to sleep longer! But he’s doing pretty well for a three month old.)



Consequences – E. M. Delafield
Oh Alex, what are you doing with your life???


Bangkok 8 – John Burdett
Yup I am jumping the gun and reading my Southeast Asian books now. This one is a police procedural (?) set in Bangkok.

Eating (and now it’s 14.45 while I’m finishing up this post)

A homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookie which wee reader helped me make.


Milk. Because you can’t have a cookie without milk!


Orange is the new black. Yes, still. Because it’s kind of hard to watch anything with a two plus year old roaming around.


Fiona Apple’s The Idler Wheel, which includes this song, Hot Knife.

What are you reading this week?



  1. Oooh, Consequences from Girlebooks! I love that site and fully intend to read Roast Beef, Medium and Daddy Long Legs from there. Also, I am LOVING Orange is the New Black. I had a weekend to myself, and I watched 8 episodes or so over Saturday and Sunday. Crazy! The fiance downloaded the audiobook. lol


    1. Girlebooks has such great books!

      Orange is the New Black has all these great characters! I’m so sad that I’ve only got a few episodes left to watch!


    1. Hey Tanya,
      I really enjoyed it. I’m in the middle of writing a review, since quite a few people seem to be interested in it! Check back soon!
