“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 planning to read next.
I took part in my first 24-hour Readathon over the weekend! It was tough trying to fit reading (and updating and checking out others’ updates) into a typical Saturday (two kids, husband working from home), but I did what I could. I ended up reading two graphic novels, finished one novel, and finished the last fifth of another. Plus we went out for sushi at lunchtime which always makes for an excellent day.
I’m writing this on Sunday night, it’s 930pm and the husband is still working. So I’m kind of half watching House while typing this post.
The Sons of Heaven – Kage Baker
Took me a bit to remember where things were in the story (it’s the 8th book in the Company series), but I am very absorbed in it right now.
The Golem and the Jinni – Helene Wecker
Just started on it.
Johnny Hiro: Half Asian, All Hero – Fred Chao
Nothing now, but had some fried rice, tofu with mushrooms and vegetables, and sweet and sour pork for dinner.
The plan for dinner on Monday is some rice noodles stir fried with beef and broccoli.
House MD. Hugh Laurie is such a great reason to rematch it. :P
Last week I read:
I love when a book surprises me. From this cover I expected a story about some kind of prep school. It turned out to be a bit more than that. In that kind of weird way I love. I’ve requested for the next volumes!
Huntress – Malinda Lo
It took me a while to get into this story but it was quite enjoyable. It had strong female characters, which is always a plus. But the switching POV was a bit distracting.
The Fairy Godmother – Mercedes Lackey
Was this a long story or what? It starts off sounding like a Cinderella retelling but it’s about fairy godmother-ing, as Elena learns to become one. It drags a bit in the middle as she figures out her fairy godmother duties. But then picks up with Alexander’s appearance. A bit too much emphasis on the Tradition and how it manipulates everything though!
What are you reading this week?
