“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 are planning to read next.
My reading week
I finished reading a Dutch dystopian book, Weerwater [Water Fort] by Renate Dorrestein. I love it 4.5 stars. I also finished Man o man [Man, Oh Man] by Mascha de Groof, another Dutch book, a chicklit that lost a few points along the way and ended with 3 stars.
I’m reading The Ship by Antonia Howell and a Dutch book on how to publish on Amazon by Liesbeth Heenk.
I’ve changed my mind about what I’ll be reading next. It’s going to be &Sons by David Gilbert, for our next real-life book group, and a Netgalley download, The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber. Those are two very, very big books and should keep me happy for a few weeks!
Funny Girl by Nick Hornby. A very good read!
Koud-Zuid [Cold South] by Ariane Meijer. A thrilling read – in Dutch.
#Fitreaders is a challenge for all readers (and everyone else, really) who want to get more active. Last week, I did quite well on average. I had two days of over 10,000 steps and one of 7,000. The other days were a little less. My goal is 3 x 7,000 and 3 x 5,000 per week, and one day off. So, this is not bad.
The Cut out Processed Food in 14 Weeks challenge was easy last week (the seventh week of the challenge): Eat wholemeal everything. That went well! The kids loved the wholegrain rice and prefer it now over the white variant. They also ate the wholewheat biscuits/cookies rather than the left-over non-wholewheat chocolate ones. Very happy with that. This coming week we have to stop eating when we’re full and not eat if we’re not hungry. That’s one of those ha ha, yeah, if only, kind of challenges for me. But I’ll try. Honestly, I will!
