It’s Monday – What Are You Reading?
April 2, 2012 27 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 didn’t read as much as normal this week, mainly because Friday-Sunday I was busy with Bloggiesta and didn’t do much reading. Yes, Bloggiesta… did you notice the new look of my blog? Don’t run off, it’s Leeswammes’ Blog!🙂
I read 2 books in the last week
A Tiny Bit Marvellous by Dawn French. I read this for my book group, last Friday we had our meeting. The book was fun, boring and cliché, all of that. It made for a good discussion, though. 3.5 stars
Just in Case by Meg Rosoff. About a boy, David Case, who is afraid fate will catch up with him and he changes his name to Justin and reinvents himself completely. But can he escape fate? 3.5 stars

Battle Royale by Koushun Tamaki. This is The Hunger Games original story from 1999. In this case a Japanese school class is let loose on an island and the pupils have to fight until just one of them is left over. 4.5 stars
Elegy for Eddie by Jacqueline Winspear. It’s 1933 and Maisie Dobbs investigates the accidental death of a man she’s known all her life. Was it really an accident? Number 9 in the series. 4 stars
As I said, it was Bloggiesta weekend. That is an online event in which bloggers work on their blog and help each other out where needed. I did a lot. This is what I planned to do, this is what I did (almost the same!), and here an experimental post that I sent from my mobile phone.
My apologies to my RSS subscribers who must have seen loads of (old) posts in their reader: I updated a lot of posts and they were re-published. Just ignore them, please.
That’s it! What are YOU reading this week?
