It’s Monday and I’ve just finished Akata Witch


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date



Recently, a friend’s former colleague from Singapore moved to the same city as us and yesterday they came over for lunch. It was nice to meet them and chat about things, their younger daughter is just a few months older than my older boy, so the kids got along quite well. Only thing is when they were playing ball out in the backyard, my 3yo tripped and fell on his cheek. So he’s sporting quite a bruise on the side of his eye! Luckily it doesn’t seem to bother him, except this morning when he looked in the mirror and asked, what’s that on my face?!

Other things this week: 











Still watching Shameless! I did try watching the first episode of Quantico. Not sure if I will watch more though. I’m not very fond of the ‘falsely accused of doing something’ kind of scenarios


Man it has been a long time since I’ve listened to an audiobook. My mornings are now consumed with my freelance writing project. Which means I haven’t been exercising!



Am writing this on Sunday afternoon. Just had Korean food for lunch.


Barley tea.



If I can remember to buy some beef then bibimbap.

Also some kind of sheet pan chicken drumsticks with sweet potatoes and maybe broccoli?


Lots of book bloggers’ predictions for the Man Booker shortlist! The actual shortlist will be revealed on Tuesday.

I read:

Akata Witch! SO GOOD!


I posted:




  1. That’s one that I had from the library ages ago, but it was returned unread. Now I’m thinking that I’ll just collect all of her books: seems like a good bet, no? 🙂
