Weekly Reading Roundup
December 9, 2013 10 Comments
The week started well, with a trip to Amsterdam with Suzanne of Bibliosue. She spent a few days in Germany and the Netherlands. We visited the Anne Frank House, where I’d never been before. It was very interesting to see. We had lunch in a typical Amsterdam café and visited the English book store Waterstone’s and a few other shops. I bought just one book, I think Suzanne got two – we were good! We were just having a good time together and completely forgot to take some pictures for our blog friends. What a shame!
Books I finished in the last week: 2
Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri. Short stories about Indian immigrants in the USA. 4.5 stars
De gestolen kinderen [The Stolen Children] by Gerardo Soto y Koelemeijer. A Spanish man realises he may be one of tens of thousands of children that were taken from their parents and adopted by people in favour of the Franco government of the 1950s and 1960s. 3.5 stars
Books I’m reading & planning to read
The Humans by Matt Haig. An alien has taken over the body of a professor who has discovered a secret that will affect the whole universe if it comes out. He learns what it means to be human. 5 stars
I posted my November overview.
