It’s Monday! What are you reading? (August 12 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.




Fire from heaven – Mary Renault

I kind of love this historical fiction on the life of Alexander the Great, but it is a little heavy and it has quite a few characters that I keep losing track of since I seem to pick it up only every other day – and then just read a few pages… must step it up!!)


The Headmaster’s wager – Vincent Lam

(Ugh one of those women from the back covers!)


Carrot cake! It was my mother-in-law’s birthday yesterday and we had a lovely cake from our favourite local bakery.

  1. Yum. Now you’ve got me craving carrot cake! 🙂
    It’s so hard when a story has a ton of characters. Sometimes I feel like I need a chart to keep track of them all!
