It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It's always great to start off the week with my reading planned and knowing which books to look forward to!
Last week was a pretty busy one with kids soccer and gymnastics, field trips and gorgeous weather. Not to mention the start of the Euro Cup (go Oranje!) So I only read one book but I'm looking forward to getting back into things.
Last week I read:
Gold by Chris Cleave. A story about Olympic cyclists, their friendship and rivalry, and life with a little bit of Star Wars thrown in. Review to come soon.
Right now I am reading:
Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter by Carmen Aguirre. Carmen's mother and stepfather were South American resistance fighters and Carmen recounts her childhood and how she decided to join the resistance herself.
Next I am going to read:
The Red House by Mark Haddon. Over the course of a week a man, his new wife and willful stepdaughter stay in the English countryside with his estranged sister, her husband and three children. Long-held grudges, hopes and dreams all rise to the surface in this novel about the family dynamic.
