It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are you Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Last week, we had a little problem with our new internet connection and it involved us going for 2.5 days without any internet.  I managed to hold up pretty well, it gave me a lot more time to read.  My husband didn't do so well though ;)  We're definitely glad to have it back though, just in time for a new week of blogging!

What I Read Last Week

What I Did On My Holidays by Chrissie Manby is a fun chick lit novel.  I think Manby may be one of new favourite chick lit authors.  With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin is a Christian fiction novel set in WWII.  The Road of Lost Innocence by Somaly Mam is the true story of a young woman sold into prostitution in Cambodia and the efforts she is making to save others from it.  

What I'm Reading Now
The Air We Breathe by Christa Parrish is a Christian fiction novel about a teenage girl who suffers from anxiety and can't leave her home.  The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier is a historical novel about the Underground Railroad.

What I Plan to Read Next
The Scottish Banker of Surabaya by Ian Hamilton is a mystery novel involving money laundering and the Italian mob.  It's the fifth in a series that I haven't read any of, but it seems like that's not going to be an issue.  A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park is based on the true story of a young man and woman in Sudan, affected by the war that is going on around them.

What are you reading this week?


  1. I haven't read any of the books you have there. But I love a good chick-lit. I must keep an eye out for that book.

    I have read some of Chevalier's books and liked them. Hope it's good!

    Happy reading this week.

  2. Interesting mix! "What I Did On My Holidays", i have it here and look forward to reading it on the next trip. and Sudan, i'm reading a book from there right now, too - here's more: 4 reads: desert books & fairy tales

  3. I have not read or seen these books - thanks for the heads up! It is a nice variety of topics. Enjoy your books and have a big cuppa for me! :)
