It's Monday!

It's Monday is hosted by Sheila from Book Journey.

Last week I finished reading Miss Timmin's School for Girls, which I'm going to review this week. I will also review The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera this week.

I have written a review of Consolation by Anna Gavalda, which you can view here. I have read this book for Paris in July, but I'm sorry to say that it wasn't my cup of tea. The story lacked a somewhat twisted plot or the kind of wit Gavalda produced in Hunting and Gathering (aslo known as Ensemble, c'est tout).

I am now reading Little Bee by Chris Cleave. After that I'm going to read the Giver by Lois Lowry. I heard people rave abou this one for too long. Finally, I want to read for myself.

What else? My mother is coming back from Taiwan on Wednesday. I am curious to know what she picked up in the various bookshops at the aiports spending the last money in foreign currencies.

  1. I hope you like Little Bee as much as I did. The Giver is a lovely book. Enjoy your week, your mum's return and happy reading.

  2. I have seen little bee around quite a bit, but must confess i am not sure what it's about. looking forward to seeing your review and seeing what you think. i bought the giver a few months back, after a friend expressed astonishment i had never read it. maybe we should do a read-a-long or something for it =D

  6. Look forward to your review of Miss Timmmons; I have the NetGalley but the reviews I've seen so far haven't made me excited about reading it.

  7. I'm reading Little Bee by Chris Cleave too. Unfortunately, I've been reading it for two months now. Things have been hectic. Maybe, I'll try and finish so we can compare notes. :-) Enjoy your reading.
