It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
April 15, 2013 27 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 are planning to read next.
Last week was a GOOD week! Not in the least because it was my birthday on Friday. Well, actually, Friday stood out as by far the best day of that week: I celebrated my 39th birthday (for the erm… so maniest time: add a few years), I went to the Open House day of a Dutch publisher and had such fun hearing authors talk, and chatting with other book lovers. Then in the evening I had my book group meeting (we discussed Schroder by Amity Gaige). What better way to celebrate a book lover’s birthday?
Other than that, the temperature finally went up and I had a nice cycle ride on Sunday, without a coat (and still hot). I’m working pretty hard on the corrections of a manuscript (a novel) which means the housework and every thing else is on the back burner until that is finished.
Books I finished in the last week: 2
Nacht in Noorwegen [Norwegian by Night] by Derek B. Miller. An 82-year old American man has moved in with his granddaughter in Norway and becomes the witness of a crime. He escapes with a little boy. 4 stars
Schroder by Amity Gaige. A divorced man wants to see more of his little daughter and takes her on an unscheduled holiday, after which he is wanted for kidnapping. 5 stars
