It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
January 10, 2011 22 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 finished 5 books in the last week:
Kindred by Octavia E. Butler, a time travel book about a modern black woman accidentally ending up in the american South in the 1800s where she is treated as a slave. Very good! 4.5 stars
Dead Politician Society by Robin Spano (e-book), entertaining. About a young female police agent infiltrating a political group. 3.5 stars
Sukwann Island by David Vann (e-book), a brilliant book about survival in Alaska. 4.5 stars
Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination by Helen Fielding, nice and surprisingly not chick-lit. 4 stars
31 Hours by Masha Hamilton, which was rather boring. 2.5 starsj
Life Sentence by David Ellis, a thriller.
Sweetie by Kathryn Magendie (ebook), hillbilly fiction.
After that, I’m reading (more) from my unread books shelf – it could be any of these books….
I wrote a review of The Bed I Made by Lucie Whitehouse.
I also wrote a review of Reus [Giant] by Annelies Verbeke [Dutch].
And a very belated review of Bodies and Language by Vaidehi Ramanathan.
Check out the new books that made it to Chez Leeswammes.
Please send in pictures for the crazy Back of the Book competition!
That’s it! What are YOU reading this week?
