Book Journey hosts this weekly meme. As she says, "This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next 'must read' book will come from!"
Still reading A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth and probably will be for quite some time. It's a chunkster, but a good one. Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin by Timothy Snyder is more than halfway finished; tremendously interesting and sobering.
I've started two new books since my last "It's Monday!" post. Geheimnis Am... Holunderweg by Enid Blyton is my current German-language reading. After toiling through Die Verwandlung, I needed a bit of a mental rest, and this one is really much more my speed. It's a YA mystery from about 1970, and I'm quite enjoying it, partly for the nostalgia value and partly because I don't need the dictionary to read it!
The other new book (well, new to me) is Nick Hornby's A Long Way Down. Recommended to me as a funny book about suicide, it is witty and sarcastic, not at all sentimental, but not mean-spirited either. Highly improbable but totally believable, and I'm hooked.
