It's Monday! What are you reading?

Since my last Monday post two weeks ago I read and reviewed:

Miss Timmins' School for Girls by Nayana Currimbhoy - a very versatile book about life teaching lessons and a mysterious murder - see my review here.
Little Bee by Chris Cleave - the story of a Nigerian refugee girl and a British woman, whose life changes dramatically one day at a Nigerian beach - see my review here.

I also have read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and The Giver by Lois Lowry. For both books reviews are coming shortly.

Now I'm reading The Monsters of Templeton. I already read the first chapter about Willie coming home and a big, dead monster floating atop of Templeton's lake. Let's say I am hooked and looking forward to my cozy reading time before I go to sleep.

After The Monsters of Templeton I want to read Suite Francaise by Irène Némirovsky for Paris in July. Another big chunk. For more information about the event, click the button in the right sidebar.

It's Monday is hosted by Sheila from BookJourney.


  1. The Monsters sounds fun - enjoy!

  2. Some great books of which I read a few. The Monsters sounds like an interesting book. Suite Francaise is quite well known, but I haven't read it.

    Have a great week!

  3. Great books this week. I hope you enjoyed them!

    Here was my vacation week reading review

  4. Nice books!

    Have a nice week. ;)


  5. Did you love The Hunger Games? I was sucked in to the series last summer!

  6. I still want to read Little Bee one day :)

  7. I loved the Hunger Games... Little Bee? Not so much, it was good, but not great. I hope you enjoy everything you read this week :)

  8. I loved the Hunger Games and can't wait to find the time to read the second and third book in the series.

    For Little Bee, well it lacked something although it featured very many topics, like friendship, violence, oil wars, refugees, detention centers and so on. It's worth a read.

  9. I'm new to your blog and was having a peak around. I'm a big traveller too so I'm a new follower.
    Have a good reading week.
