It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

“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.
My reading week
I finished Us by David Nicholls. This was a fun book to read. A bit of a road movie, traveling through Europe, 4 stars. I also finally finished a Dutch book, Tegenpool by Pauline Slot, which I liked so-so. But to be fair, I only read small bits at a time.
I enjoyed Disclaimer by Renée Knight, which is a psychological thriller. Not too thrilling but it had some unexpected developments, which I really liked, 4 stars. I also read Island of the Lost Girls by Jennifer McMahon, which was a quick and enjoyable read, 4 stars.
Currently I’m reading a Dutch book, Slaap zacht, Johnny Idaho [Sleep tight, Johnny Idaho] by Auke Hulst. After that, it’s time for my book group book, Funny Girl by Nick Hornby.
#Fitreaders is a challenge for all readers (and everyone else, really) who like to get more active. Last week, I did three days at 7,000+ steps (twice above 10K!), three at around 5,000 and one below 4,000. My goal is 3 x 7,000 and 3 x 5,000 per week, and one day off. So, that was a good week.
The Cut out Processed Food in 14 Weeks challenge was easy last week (the third week of the challenge): Eat less meat and if possible, local and organic. Since I don’t eat meat, my challenge was to eat fewer highly processed meat replacement foods. I did manage this for most of the week and I also kept the earlier challenges going (more fruit, drink only coffee, tea, milk, or water). The challenge for the coming week is to eat no take away or deep-fried food. No so hard, except for the oven chips that we regularly eat.
