I have read a whole lot this week. I almost finished 3 books! While this may be normal for others, this is a lot for me ;) I finished Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok. (Review will follow soon.) I also read a Dutch book called "Gevangen in mijn binnenwereld" (trapped in my inner world) by Sun-Mi Venema. This is a non fiction book about a young girl who has the locked-in-syndrome and this was a very interesting read. Currently I am reading "Twijfels over Belgie" (Doubts about Belgium) by Petra Kruijt. This is a chick-lit about a Dutch woman who goes undercover in a commune in Belgium to write columns for a magazine. I normally don't read much chick-lit, but I read about this book on "de Boekblogger" (the Book blogger), the Dutch blog of Leeswammes, and it seemed a fun light read. So when I came across it in the library, I took it home with me. I almost finished this, but I am not sure I will review it here since there isn't an English translation.
Here is a picture of my library loot :) The bottom book is The Gardens of Kyoto by Kate Walbert, which I bought at the library for 1 euro to donate to Abunaicon's Japanese themed BookCrossing shelf. I am not sure if I will read it myself though.As for what I plan to read next, I have no idea yet ;) I might go loot the library again, or check on NetGalley or read off my shelf. I am currently still in the phase where I just want to read whatever calls to me.
I also wrote some reviews in the past week:
Clean by Amy Reed
Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua
and on my bento/cooking blog I reviewed the Vegetarian Student Cookbook
What are you reading in the Summer? Are you reading as they come, or do you stick to the schedule even during Summer?
