Weekly Reading Roundup
December 23, 2013 12 Comments
Last week, I’ve been reading quite a bit: 3.5 books. I’ve not felt too well the last few days so spent a lot of time reading instead of doing more brain-consuming things. Other than dreaming about holidays I haven’t done anything special. There may be a week to a sunny destination with a friend in February and also, I want to fulfil my bucket-list plan of travelling the Norwegian fjords. I’m dreaming and plotting…
If you’re celebrating a particular holiday this week, have fun! I’m not prepared. At all.
Books I finished in the last week: 3
The Kept by James Scott. Historical fiction about a woman who comes home to her desolated farm to find all of her family killed, except for one son. They pledge to find the killers. 5 stars
This Year it Will be Different by Maeve Binchy. Short stories with a Christmas theme, but nothing too sweet. 4.5 stars
De mannenmaker [The Men Maker] by Petra Kruijt. Chick lit. A woman chooses a new nerdy man every half year to transform into girlfriend material. But what about herself? 3.5 stars
Books I’m reading & planning to read
Have Wormhole, Will Travel by Tony McFadden. Science Fiction. Two aliens are on Earth to stop earthlings from discovering scientifc breakthroughs that could endanger the lives on their home planet. 3.5 stars
The One Thing [Review in Dutch] by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. A book with one thing: to make your plans come true, do the one thing that will at the moment by the most useful in achieving your objective. I believe in it. 5 stars.
