It’s Monday! What are you reading? (September 2 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.

Monday is nearly over and I’m only just posting this! To those in the US, hope you’re having a great long weekend! It’s been such a busy day for us, trying to get things ready for Wee Reader who will be starting preschool (just three mornings a week) on Wednesday. September just snuck up on us there!




Aunty Lee’s Delights: A Singaporean Mystery – Ovidia Yu

For an upcoming TLC book tour


A Grave Talent (Kate Martinelli #1) – Laurie R King




Having what Smitten Kitchen calls brownie roll-out cookies, that Wee Reader helped me make last weekend.

Milk. Cos cookies you know…


New Girl – just started season one! Fun!

Looking forward to:
Hosting my first ever giveaway on this blog! Check back tomorrow for details!

Last week:

I read:

Wildwood – Colin Meloy


Yes! The Colin Meloy of the Decemberists! He’s written a really long children’s book. A Narnia-ish kind of story with battles and talking creatures. Gorgeous illustrations (even when read on the kindle). But it wasn’t a fantastic read. This is book one of this Portland-based series, but I doubt I’ll read any more.

Iggie’s House – Judy Blume


Apparently I hadn’t read all of Blume’s books! Loved this one. And wish I had read it as a kid.

I posted:

Weekend Cooking: Mooncakes 

The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly

The Headmaster’s Wager by Vincent Lam

RIP VIII reading list

What are you reading this week?



  1. I just finished The Swan Book by the incredible Indigenous Australian writer, Alexis Wright. Set in Australia after climate change is causing every one to lose our homelands. Beautifully Indigenous. Review to follow. Next week I will start Richardson’s Australian classic, The Fortune of Richard Mahony. I also hope to start Rice Mother.


  2. Can you send some of those cookies through the computer? They are too cute!
    I’m glad you are enjoying the fun that is New Girl. We were re-watching some episodes last week. They are still funny the second time around. 🙂
