It’s Monday! What are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is a chance to share with others what you have been reading and what you plan to read. I haven’t participated in a long time but in my effort to get back into the blogging groove I thought this would be something to get me to post more regularly.
Last week I only finished one book: The Emperor of Paris by CS Richardson. I don’t know if I’ll write a full review of it but I did like it, though the first part of the book seems not to go anywhere. It’s an odd love story between two people in Paris, and regular readers know that I love anything set in Paris. The story is nice, but the writing is really what kept me reading.
I added two more books to my DNF list: Sad Desk Salad by Jessica Grose, which was just too superficial for me after only 25 pages (though I love the title); and Rondo by Kazimierz Brandys, which was too complicated for me this week. I seem to be abandoning more books than I’m finishing lately; I don’t know if that says more about me or the books.
I’m currently reading Annexed by Sharon Dogar, which is a novel about Peter, the boy who was in hiding with Anne Frank. So far it kind of reads like his own diary of their hiding, and though I don’t believe it is the right word for a book with this subject matter, I am enjoying it.
