It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
January 21, 2013 30 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 can but complain about last week: it was (and is!) cold and snowy. Perfect weather to stay at home – when you can! The trains weren’t reliable and on the day that I volunteer in the school library, I stayed home after my son tried to get to school twice (he waited at the train station with no trains coming, then went home to defrost, then I sent him out to try again). He missed his lessons that day.
Books I finished in the last week: 4
The Book of Why by Nicholas Montemarano. Contemporary fiction, 4 stars.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Classic, 3 stars.
The Starboard Sea by Amber Dermont. Contemporary fiction, 4 stars.
Alles wat er was [All there was] by Hanna Bervoets (Dutch). Science Fiction, 5 stars.
Books I’m reading and planning to read
Cover of Snow by Jenny Milchman. Contemporary fiction, Did Not Finish. A woman finds her husband dead, suicide. But she finds some clues about his past, which she goes to investigate.
Star of the Sea by Joseph O’Connor. Historical Fiction, 5 stars. A ship sails from Ireland to New York during the potato famine. The passengers all have their own story.
