It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted by Book Journey.Each week we spotlight the books we are reading, planning on reading or just finished reading.
I forgot to post last Monday, but that's ok as the books would have been the same as the first post...
I have finished both A Clash of Kings and Dissolution. And I loved both!
I have just read a few pages so I can't tell you how I like it yet. But as it is a mystery and part historical it just has to be good, right?!
On the eve of a glittering society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again.
Grace Bradley, ninety-eight, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken and old memories - long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind - begin to sneak back through the cracks. A shocking secret threatens to emerge, something history has forgotten but Grace never could.
Set as the war-shattered Edwardian summer surrenders to the decadent twenties, The House at Riverton is a thrilling mystery and a compelling love story."
I've read a third of the book and so far it's ok.
"Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day.
Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.
Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him...or returning to his bed?
Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple."
And as Endre still likes me to read him a bedtime story, we have started this. We are reading the norwegian book though ;) It's the second time I read it for him and we both like these small animal stories and the illustrations are great as well :)
Containing stories from well-known authors such as Rudyard Kipling and Aesop as well as traditional tales from around the world including fighting crabs, gigantic frogs and a polar bear's search for home, all kinds of children are sure to find a story that they will enjoy.
