Weekly Reading Roundup
May 6, 2013 22 Comments
The second unfortunate week in a row. Last week, we didn’t go on holiday, this week, first my mother breaks her hip, then my husband has a car crash (he’s fine, our (only) car is not), as a result of which I had to 1) visit my mother, and 2) do this by train. On Sunday, I first went past her house (by train) to pick up some things and then on to the convalescence home (by train), which took forever. But hey, I’m still smiling!
This week, the kids go back to school after 10 days off. I don’t have anything planned in particular but I suspect that the car and/or my mother will keep me busy!
Books I finished in the last week: 2
My Soul to Take by Yrsa Sigurdardottir. A brilliant mystery taking place in Iceland. 5 stars
Stern by Thomas Heerma van Voss [Dutch]. A school teacher is made redundant and thinks back on his relationships with friends, family and his pupils. 4.5 stars
Books I’m reading
I only finished 2 books last week, but I’m reading all 4 books mentioned here! One I read now and then, one is my “current” read, one is a non-fiction book of which I read a chapter a day, and the final book is thin enough to fit in my handbag. 🙂

The Wish List by Jane Costello. A woman who is about to turn 30 rediscovers a wishlist she made at 15. She tries to tick off the items on the list. Chick-lit. 4,5 stars
The Travel Auction by Mark Green. When a man and his girlfriend split up, he advertises for someone with her name to take her place in a trip to South America (as he already got the tickets). Chick-lit/Lad-lit. 4,5 stars.
Een stil vertrek [A Quiet Departure] by Annette Zeelenberg. A Dutch woman suddenly leaves her home in the Netherlands and moves to a job in the USA. But she can’t shake off her past. 4 stars
Check out my April overview. Yes, I read a lot!
