It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
February 7, 2011 36 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 4 books in the last week:
The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen. About a family with grown-up children who all have their own troubles. Not as good as I had expected.
Tikkop by Adriaan van Dis (Dutch, e-book). A Dutch man goes back to South Africa after 30 years. A lot has changed.
I’m Not Scared by Niccolo Ammaniti. A young boy in a small town in rural Italy plays in the fields with his friends. He makes an terrible discovery that he doesn’t dare to talk about with anyone.
Moonface: A True Romance by Angela Balcita. Memoir. The writer has kidney disease and describes how her boyfriend donated one of his kidneys and how this influenced their life together.
The Hopeless Life of Charlie Summers by Paul Torday. A fun book about a hopeless man seen from the eyes of a more successful man, or is he?
I Is An Other by James Geary. A non-fiction book dealing with metaphors and how we subconsciously are influenced by them all the time.
After that, I’m reading Buzz Aldrin, What Happened To You In All The Confusion? by Johan Harstad and Tourquai by Tim Davys.
I wrote reviews of:
Sweetie by Kathryn Magendie
Curious to know what new, shiny books I got recently? Read the New Arrivals.
I posted the reading schedule for the Bolano 2666 read-a-long. Sign up if you want to join in. We’re starting in March.
I joined the Great Transworld Crime Caper.
That’s it! What are YOU reading this week?
