“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 took a few days off over Christmas and the New Year and managed to finish a BIG book, The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell (3.5 stars). I had some issues with it, but I also enjoyed it.
I also read The Tuesday Ladies by Monika Peetz (3.5 stars), a fun story about a group of friends going on a pilgrimage, and The Village by Nikita Lalwani (3 stars) about an British-Indian woman who visits an open prison in India with a small BBC team.
None of the books were wow. Hopefully, the book I just started, Look at Me by Jennifer Egan will be better.
#Fitreaders is a challenge for all readers (and everyone else, really) who like to get more active. Starting January 1st, I did two days at 7,000 steps and one at 5,000 and one (uh-oh) below 5,000. My goal is 5 x 7,000 and 2 x 5,000 per week. So, a small fail.
The Cut out Processed Food in 14 Weeks challenge starts today with: For every meal, replace some food with two portions of fruit or vegetables. A bit of a challenge, but I should be fine with this.
This week… should be a relatively quiet week. It’s book group on Friday. I have the feeling most of us haven’t read the book, so it will be just a sociable evening. We’ll leave the book for next time!
What are YOU reading this week?
