It’s Monday! What are you reading?/ posted in: Reading
I used to do this meme every week until a few years ago. I’ve decided to give it a go again because I realized that what I’m reading isn’t at all the same as what I end up posting. I have enough books to review that things I read now might not get up for weeks. I feel like I’m living in the past. So here’s what’s going on now.
I received Raindropt from my OTSP Secret Sister. I had to kill some time last week and I went to Barnes and Noble. I actually bought books. You might not think that’s strange but I never buy books in a store.
Whole Bowls is amazing! It is a vegetarian book for (obviously) foods served in one bowl. I made the Greek Mushroom Stifado with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes and it was wonderful. Tonight dinner will be quinoa and roasted vegetables with chickpeas and apple dressing. I’m going to be cooking my way through this one. I haven’t started the others yet. The first and third books are for Foodies Read prizes.
What Am I Listening To?
The Foundling: The True Story of a Kidnapping, a Family Secret, and My Search for the Real Me by Paul Fronczak So this day old baby gets kidnapped in the 1960s. Two years later they find him and bring him home. Fifty years later he does a home DNA test. He finds out he’s not the missing baby after all. So what happened to the baby and who is he?
What Am I Reading?
Borderline by Mishell Baker Millie has been living in a mental institution since her suicide attempt that cost her both legs. Now she is recruited to work with an organization that monitors Fey involvement in the human world. This one is good. I’ve already requested the sequel from the library.
What Am I Stalled On?
The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope by William Kamkwamba A kid in Malawi learned to build a windmill from a library book. That’s cool. But it got bogged down in stories about his younger days. Seriously, memoirists, I’m sure your childhood games are interesting to you but not really to anyone else. You can skip things to get to the good parts.
