Stacking the Shelves & It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - France Edition
Yesterday Germany won the World Cup and it was one of the happiest nights of my short existence. Now that the WC has finished I'm not quite sure what to do with myself, but there's always books! So, with that beautiful segue let's move straight onto the books and the memes! Monday means were Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga's Reviews with Lili and asking ourselves It's Monday! What Are You Reading? over at Book Journey with Sheila.
All of my books this week come from Netgalley. Because I've been reading a lot I figured I could totally use more books. And because I always overestimate how much reading time I have I request way too much and always secretly hope I won't get all of them. This week I got:
The Beauty by Aliya Whiteley, The Extraordinary Journey of a Fakir who got Trapped in an IKEA Wardrobe by Romain Puertolas, American Indian Stories and Old Indian Legends by Zitkala-Sa, The Square by Choi In-Hun, The Republic of Užupis by Haïlji and Another Man's City by Ch'oe In-Ho.
I've got some Korean titles in there because I love trying to expand my literary horizons a bit. Let's hope I enjoy them. I don't think I've ever read anything Korean before.
I managed to review quite a lot of books last week and I'm ridiculously proud of myself. Although I know reviewing is what I'm supposed to do on this blog, sometimes it can be really hard to find the time to read and then review and post! Anyway,
Last week I read:
- Burning Your Boats by Angela Carter
- Mercy and Other Stories by Rebecca Lloyd
- 1948 by Yoram Kaniuk
- A Sudden Light by Garth Stein
- Last Winter We Parted by Fuminori Nakamura (which I actually posted this morning)
- You Got To Be Kidding by Joe Wenke - Finished this one just last night before the match. It was hilarious! Review coming tomorrow!
This Week I'm Reading:
- The Dervish by Frances Kazan - I'm really enjoying this one and I've almost finished it! The review is probably coming up around Thursday!
- Moth by Daniel Arenson - Another great fantasy read from Arenson which I'm really enjoying!
- The Time Machine by H.G. Wells - I'm determined to finish this one, hopefully today!
- There are a lot of other ones as well, but this list can only go on for so long!
So, how about your week? What exciting things have you got waiting for you between the pages?
