Weekly Reading Roundup
September 23, 2013 5 Comments
Still very busy with an editing job, but it’s such fun, I don’t mind working through the weekend and missing out on Bloggiesta. Well, actually, I do mind, a bit. But the book is a really nice YA novel and a pleasure to work on.
Books I finished in the last week: 2
Niets en niemand [Nothing and Nobody] by Ivo Bonthuis [Dutch]. Family relationships and belonging. A story about a weird family. 4 stars
Cartwheel by Jennifer Dubois. Also a family story, in Argentina. A young USA woman is arrested for murder and her family flies over to visit her. 4 stars
Books I’m reading & planning to read
A Father’s Son by Richard Harris. The coming of age story of a boy whose mother goes to prison. He is a great ice hockey player, and juggles the sport, a first love, money issues and an ailing father. 4.5 stars
Zomerhuis met zwembad [Dutch: Summer House with Swimming Pool] by Herman Koch. By the writer of The Dinner. A doctor who doesn’t take his job too seriously holidays with his family at a patient’s summer house. 4.5 stars
I’m doing a MacBeth readalong with Bibliosue and Roof Beam Reader. Why not join in, too?
