It's Monday! What are you reading?

Last week I posted a review of The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff, which you can read here.

And as I plan a trip to Lisbon I posted a list of sites, which helped me getting some insider information on the city. You can read the post here.

Last week I finshed reading Suite Francaise by Irène Némirovsky. I will post a review this week. Unfortunately I made no progress on reading The Lake by Banana Yoshimoto last week, which I will try to finish this week.

I also plan on reading A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka this week. After that I will probably pick up The Gathering by Anne Enright or The Likeness by Tana French.

Have you read or plan on reading any of my books? Did you like them?

And as for the weekend: It was fantabulous. We had a treasure hunt I organized for my friend's birthday. Everybody had fun and as for a treasure there were two birthday cakes I made. For ten people you better have two cakes, right?

It's Monday is hosted by Sheila from BookJourney.


  1. I've read one book by Irene Nemirovsky and quite liked it. I also loved Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto. I haven't read any of the books you've listed though.

  2. You are doing good!!!
    I am not reading much, but so what?!!

    Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings post!

  3. I've not read any of them but Marina Lewycka's titles always intrigue me.

    See what I've been reading!

  4. Is The Lake hard to get through? I have it to read, but I keep seeing somewhat negative reviews.

    The treasure hunt sounds fun! Have a great week!

  5. @ Karen - Kitchen was great and so was Goodbye Tsugumi.

    @ gautami tripathy - Well, I do what I can and I admit I am a slow reader.

    @ Ellie - Lewycka's titles are pretty famous where I live. I hope they will live up to the hype.

    @ readerofthepack - I'm halfway through and I like it, but there is not much action until now, more like the protagonist sharing thoughts.

  6. Just hopping through, hope you enjoy your week's collection.
