Yet another Monday! (March 21, 2011)

Monday, March 21, 2011


It's Monday! What are you reading this week?

Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books wants to know what we're reading. I'm only too happy to oblige!


It's been a slow week of reading. I guess I just had too much going on, but I hope to make something out of the last 10 days of the third month of the year that just started and is already a quarter way through!

Books completed in the last week
-  The Beauty of Humanity Movement by Camilla Gibb: Nice wonderful look at the Vietnamese culture!
-  The Freedom Writers Diary by Erin Gruwell: I loved the movie and that's what prompted me to pick this book. What a truly moving book!

News from over my blog
Giveaway
-  Today's the last day to enter my giveaway of Elisa Lorello's books - Faking It and its sequel, Ordinary World.

Leif Reads!
Reviews up!
My coming weekend's going to be busy and book-free, so I hope I have five days of good reading before that.

Miss Entropia and the Adam BombMiss Entropia and the Adam Bomb by George Rabasa: I've been eager to read this book ever since I first heard of it. That cover makes me think of some kind of explosion - red and bright! I can't wait to start it!
The Four Ms. BradwellsThe Four Ms. Bradwells by Meg Waite Clayton: I've read many rave reviews of Clayton's The Wednesday Sisters, that I have my expectations high up for this book. Sadly, it's not holding my interest for more than half an hour at a time. It's taking me some time to get used to the writing - which is beautiful but is still very digressive. I'm only 40 pages in so it's too early to say anything yet!

I loved the movie version of Freedom Writers. I want to read the book too! I hope you have a great reading week ahead.

Thanks! Both the movie and the book are excellent! You should try checking out the book if you get a chance!

I hope you find some lots of quiet reading time this week. Miss Entropia sounds interesting.

Athira / Aths said...

Wow... I hope you get plenty of time to read!

Athira / Aths said...

I hope so, though it doesn't seem to look like. Still, I'm all for a try!

I've been seeing The Beauty of Humanity around a lot, but it does sound good.

I'm glad I read it before seeing it around much. But it would still have been a good read.
