“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 2 books in the last week
Click on the orange links for reviews
Dancing in the Shadows of Love by Judy Croome. “Three emotionally adrift women fight to heal their fractured worlds. Not everyone can be a hero. Or can they?” I found it a bit disappointing, 2 stars (DNF).
Skippy Dies by Paul Murray. Skippy dies in a donut restaurant while eating donuts with his friend Ruprecht. The book is mainly about what happened before and what happens afterwards. 4 stars
The Cosy Knave by Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen. Rose, an older single woman is murdered while in the company of several other villagers. Nobody saw what happened. Archibald Penrose, the local constable investigates the case. Very English, lots of fun names, lots of tea. Potential 4 stars.
Always on My Mind by Colette Caddle. Chick-lit. In a few months’ time, Molly Jackson will marry her fiancé Declan. But when she meets an old flame ánd Declan isn’t giving the wedding the priority he should, she starts to get second thoughts.
The Ugly Covers Competition is in its fourth week! Cast your vote for the ugliest cover… HERE. (Anyone can enter).
I reviewed When God was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman. I’m not one of the people who really enjoyed this book. In fact, I’m not sure what the book was all about. The author explains in the back which I don’t like. A book should be able to explain itself. 3.5 stars.
