Weekly Reading Roundup
July 2, 2012 8 Comments
No It’s Monday meme from me today, I have the feeling I will be too busy today to visit many blogs. First it’s a dentist appointment where several cavities are going to be filled and later I’ll be taking my son out shopping for some clothes for the holidays. And a visit to the gym would be a good idea, too. Then there’s that to-do list with more than enough other activities to keep me busy!
Don’t worry, if you leave a comment I will visit you and I will still visit the blogs that I’m subscribed to.
Last week, I participated in two blog hops and today I’ll be sending out books or ordering them for the winners. I have a total of 7 books to send to (or order for) 4 winners. Yes, that’s one for the to-do list indeed!
- Here you can read about the new books that arrived recently.
- I also did a June Overview. I read 20 books!
Books I finished this week: 4 (and a bit)
Blood Lure by Nevada Barr. A woman, Anna, is researching bears in a national park when a body is found. Anna investigates. 3.5 stars
Blindgangers [Unexploded shells/Blinded people] by Joke Hermsen [Dutch]. A group of 40-somethings meet for a nice weekend away but all kind of issues surface during the stay. 5 stars

Girl Reading by KatieWard. Abandoned. A collection of stories about several (existing) paitings of a girl reading. I’m not a keen short story reader and I didn’t enjoy the first two enough to keep reading.
Books I’m reading
