Books Completed Last Week
I'm not such an avid reader that I can finish stacks of books in a week. Sometimes I barely manage 10 pages, other times I read 2-3 books in a week. It all depends. The past week(s) however, I've been away and have finished 3 books:
Dinosaurens fjer (The Feather of the Dinosaur) by Sissel-Jo Gazan. This is a Danish scientific thriller slash chick lit which has become a huge bestseller in Denmark. I have reviewed it on my Danish blog, but since it has not been translated to English, I am not going to review it here. The plot revolves around Anna, who has just finished a controversial MA thesis in order to graduate as a biologist from University of Copenhagen. Suddenly dramatic stuff happens around her and it looks like some are hell bent on not having her go public with her thesis.
The Associate by John Grisham. You can read my review below.
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz. Also check below for my review.
This week I hope to finish
Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella. It has been a while since I sat down with a true chick lit novel, and I bought this one the other day when I flew home from Egypt. I needed something light for the flight and managed 100 pages. Haven't read since I got home, but will continue reading it this week. It is an okay read, but I am not overly impressed.
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. This is a book I have been meaning to read for a long time. It's a classic and I have read about 100 pages. It's a bit weird, but I like the writing and the weirdness. Anyone else read this? What are your thoughts?
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon. Have been trying to chew through this for ages. I am deeply sorry for all affected by Autism or Asperger's Syndrome in your families, but I cannot get into the swing of it with this book. I find Christopher super-annoying. But will finish!
What is up next?
