“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 3 books in the last week
(Click on the orange links for reviews and other posts.)
My Life in France by Julia Child (DNF). Julia Child’s memoir of living in France and learning how to cook. She eventually became a famous cook in the US. I got bored with this book and didn’t finish it. 3 stars
Instructions for an Inexperienced Lover by Amanda Leduc (ebook). Rosa wants to be a writer but she needs more real-life experience.Then Aylish, a friend from her writing workshop comes into her life. Well-written. 4 stars
Season to Taste by Molly Birnbaum. Memoir about a woman who wants to be a professional chef, but loses her sense of smell in a car accident. The book is about her life as well as her forage into science, to find out what happened to her sense of smell. 4 stars (review to follow)
Devil’s Cub by Georgette Heyer. Courtney of Stiletto Storytime has declared August Georgette Heyer month and asked me to review one of Heyer’s books on her blog. I have read one other book by Heyer and like this one, it’s such fun!
My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler. I need to read a book tagged “essays” for a challenge that I’m doing. I don’t like essays in general, so I was lucky to find this short book with Handler’s sexual escapades. Not all in the best taste, but very funny!
I wrote a review of
Snapshot by Craig Robertson. Someone is killing off criminals in Glasgow. Police photographer Tony Winter, who is always the first to be close up to the bodies, investigates, unofficial, of course.
Check out my New Arrivals!
These are my 5 Best Books … About Love.
Finally, the winners of the Back of the Book Competition are announced!
I’m hoping to run a new competition involving books with ugly covers.
Which covers do you find very ugly? Let me know!
That’s it! What are YOU reading this week?
