It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted at Book Journey
The Sunday Post











It's Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. She's taking a bit of personal leave so I'm also linking to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

I got two reviews written and posted last week. That's about 200,000% better than I've been doing the past few months. Let's hope I keep up the momentum! :-)

Posted:
Review: The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker, read by Cassandra Campbell, translated by Kevin Wiliarty--3 Stars--Beautifully written, read, and translated, this just felt a bit too much like a Nicholas Sparks novel for my taste

Review: Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerasco√ęt--3 Stars--Beautiful artwork, nice translation, just too choppy and reminiscent of Lord of the Flies for me

Read:
I didn't finish anything last week.

Currently Reading:
The Last Time I Saw Paris by Lynn Sheene

Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West by Stephen E. Ambrose (This week it is actually back in my hands after a brief return to the library)

The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson, read by Steven Crossley, translated by Rod Bradbury (Yes, I am trying to do better on my own Books in Translation Challenge this year)

Up Next:
I went to a different library this week to grab Undaunted Courage. They had a very enticing, very large selection of graphic novels. I just had to linger over them and choose one. I walked out with Habibi by Craig Thompson. I read Blankets by this author/artist several years ago and enjoyed it, so this one seemed like a safe bet.

What are you reading this week?

  1. I read The Art of Hearing Heartbeats in my book group. I thought the writing style was nice but the pacing was too slow. I had some other issues with it too.

    We also read The 100 Year Old Man in book group. I liked that one more. It was made into a movie in Sweden.
