It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
February 10, 2014 21 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.
The last two weeks
Not a lot happened, things are quiet. I had a few off-days, a little bit ill but not enough to call it that. I took the opportunity to read a bit more.
I also went to a really nice book presentation of a new Dutch chick-lit, especially for bloggers and for winners of a facebook competition. We had a nice lunch and had fun talking with the author.
Books I finished in the last TWO weeks: 7
To Be a Cat by Matt Haig. A boy who is bullied at school wishes he had the simple life of a cat. Oops! Children’s book, 4.5 stars.
This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash. Two girls in a foster home are abducted by their father, who is at the same time being chased for having stolen money. 5 stars
The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey. The aliens are wiping out humanity in waves. A girl is trying to survive on her own, at the same time hoping to find her little brother back. 5 stars
