It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
November 28, 2011 42 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 read 4 books in the last week
A Week in December by Sebastian Faulks. A week in December with several characters, some interesting, some not at all. 4/5
The Secret Shopper Unwrapped by Kate Harrison. Three friends, who are secret shoppers, all have relationship problems. A bit tedious, but an easy read. 3.5/5
Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua. Memoir about a woman bringing up her children the Chinese way. I didn’t like her much, but it’s an entertaining book. 4/5
The Centenarian Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. In Dutch, about a 100-year old man who disappears from his nursing home just before the birthday celebrations. So far, it’s a lot of fun.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. About that magical circus you’ve probably heard of. Lives up to the hype! 5/5 stars
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!
Here are some other events taking place soon (read-a-thon and December challenge).
That’s it! What are YOU reading this week?
