It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
September 24, 2012 29 Comments
“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney to share with others what you’ve read the past week and planning to read next.
I read only 2 books this week. San Miguel was a slow read, somehow. Oh, I did read and comment on a beginning author’s manuscript, that took a lot of time too.
Today, I’m shopping with a friend – we’ll be looking for purple and petrol clothes for me… because we’ve worked out that those colors suit me best – they are also my friend’s colors, so I had a rummage through her wardrobe last week to get some ideas. I was amazed by the amount of clothes she has! I have hardly anything (which is why we go shopping) but to be fair, I would happily survive on a rotation of three sets of clothes per season.
Books I finished in the last week: 2
San Miguel by T. C. Boyle. Historical fiction by one of my favorite authors. Disappointing. 3.5 stars
The Miracle Inspector by Helen Smith. A dystopia story in a future London. Well-written, interesting story. 4.5 stars
