It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
March 9, 2015 7 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 I read…
I finished (and loved!) The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber. This is a large book, but it reads so easily, it’s never a slog.
Next up it’s
The Shut Eye by Belinda Bauer. A thriller. I’ve enjoyed every book I’ve read by this author, and it starts really interesting!
Dit kan niet waar zijn [This Can’t be True] by Joris Luyendijk, about banks and how no one really seems to know what they’re doing (including the banks themselves).
The Best Thing That Can Happen to a Croissant by Pablo Tusset. How about that for a title? It’s Spanish Month on one of the Dutch blogs and this is my first book.
Together with Isi of FromIsi, I’m reading a book by another Spanish author, The Green Pen by Eloy Moreno!
Are you joining in the 24-hour readathon or the Literary Blog Hop (not hosted by me)? Look here for more information.
I reviewed Ablutions by Patrick DeWitt, but for now only in Dutch.
#Fitreaders is a challenge for all readers (and everyone else, really) who want to get more active. My goal is 3 x 7,000 and 3 x 5,000 per week, and one day off. I had 4 days above 7,000 steps and I never seem to get to those 5,000+ days… Oh well, I’m happy.
The Cut out Processed Food in 14 Weeks challenge was not terribly hard last week (the nineth week of the challenge): Eat no added sugar, or other sweeteners. It turns out, there is sugar in a lot of things, even foods where you don’t expect any. But I managed, mainly by cutting out foods – not something I can do indefinitely – and buying some alternatives from the health food store (since they don’t taste as nice, I don’t eat that much!). This week it’s No refined or hydrogenated oils. Well, they’re also in everything! 🙂
