“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
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie. A fun read about a teenage American Indian boy who goes to school outside the reservation and is then an outcast in both worlds. 5/5 stars
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. About that circus, you know the book or you’ve heard of it. Lives up to the hype. 5/5
Now you See Me by S. J. Bolton. Another great book: a thriller involving a modern Jack the Ripper. Very good read. 5/5
The World We Found by Thrity Umrigar. Three friends in India in their forties are invited by their old friend in America to come and visit as she’s terminally ill. Great read so far.

The Human Race by O. C. Heaton. A new way of transportation will make life easier for people and it’s cleaner on the environment. A rich English investor is approached by an Icelandic woman, the owner of the new invention, to help her distribute the technique. But someone will do anything to get hold of the information. 3.5/5
Een duivel met een ziel [A Devil With A Soul] by Richard Osinga. Morocco, 1909. We follow a soldier from the French army who describes the atrocities and politics of the war that’s going on. DNF
I’m running the Wishlist Challenge for people who own so many unread books that they will never, ever get round to reading their wishlist (books they don’t own). Unless they do this challenge!
