Weekly Reading Roundup
September 16, 2013 11 Comments
Busy, busy, including the weekend, with my editing business. It’s booming!
Other than that, I bought another Emma Bridgewater mug (sorry, that is a big thing for me!) and we had a great book group meeting, talking about Bill Bryson’s Notes from a Small Island.
Books I finished in the last week: 3
The Devil in Silver by Victor LaValle. A mental hospital in which a monster roams at night. One of the inmates gets together a team to try and catch him. 4.5 stars
The History of Love by Nicole Krauss. A book about a book with the same name. A good read. 4 stars
A Father’s Son by Richard Harris. The coming of age story of a boy whose mother goes to prison. He is a great ice hockey player, and juggles the sport, a first love, money issues and an ailing father. 4.5 stars
Books I’m reading & planning to read
Goat Mountain by David Vann. A favoriete writer but still a DNF. It was too much and too little for me.
Doelwit in de nacht [Target at Night] by Ricardo Piglia. A mystery novel set in Argentina. It confused me and while I finished it, I didn’t find it very interesting. 2.5 stars.
I’m thinking about the next Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. It’s probably going to be early November rather than October. I’m just too busy in October to co-ordinate it.
