It's Monday!

It’s Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Book Journey to share with others what you've read the past week and planning to read next.

Last week I finished reading:

Ergebenst, euer Schurik by Russian author Ljudmila Ulitzkaja, the title translated into English is something like Sincerely yours, Schurik. It is about a young man who grew up only with his mother and grandmother. This made him sensitive for the needs of women, which he is easily obliged to satisfy. He soon learns that his primary feeling for women is pity. But only the reader knows that he is the one people look at with pity. I will review the book this week.

When Mary Lennox becomes an orphan she is send to live with her uncle in a big manor. The house is surrounded by parks and gardens of which one is locked. Lonely Mary sets out to explore the secret garden. I will review the book this week.

What I am reading now:

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and when I have finished this I will either read Lord of the Flies by William Golding or Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov.


  1. I need to someday read The Secret Garden. Enjoy your week :)

  2. My goal is get some classic novels in this year too!

  3. I love Little Women- and also enjoyed the Secret Garden. I have a shelf of classics to try and read this year.

  4. The Secret Garden is a lovely book. I finished more K to 3 books for my project, some short stories and at last, Kraken. Come see what I'm reading now.

  5. Thanks for the reminder about Little Women - I loved that book and now I think I'll re-read it this year.

  6. It's hard to believe that I haven't yet read The Secret Garden...but it's on my "to do" list.

    Reread Little Women a few months ago, and loved it all over again.
