Weekly Reading Roundup
January 7, 2013 28 Comments
“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney to share with others what we’ve read the past week and planning to read next.
I spent a lot of time reading Star of the Sea but it was a great read. Historical fiction at its best. We celebrated New Year’s Eve quietly at home with family games, which was good fun. Visited my Mum on New Year’s Day and had more fun and games.
Books I finished in the last week: 3
The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson. Contemporary fiction, 3 stars.
Star of the Sea by Joseph O’Connot. Historical fiction, 5 stars.
The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy. Historical fiction, 4 stars.
Books I’m reading and planning to read
May We Be Forgiven by A. M. Homes. Contemporary fiction, 4.5 stars.
Reach for a Different Sun by Jenni O’Connor. Mystery, 4 stars.
Incognito [Dutch] by Henk Rijks. Contemporary fiction (Dutch), 5 stars
Last to Die [Dutch] by Tess Gerritsen. Thriller, 4 stars.
And here are my new books.
My favorite reads on my Dutch blog. I bet you can recognise some of them. They are, unfortunately, none of them Dutch.
