It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Date .This meme is a great opportunity for book bloggers to showcase their ‘book-ish’ habits for the week. It is a good forum to share books read in the past week, current reads and upcoming reads. It is also a fantastic way to connect with fellow bookworms and add some books to your reading wishlist. Thanks for hosting Book Date!
I am writing this post after coming back from the local beach. It has been a lovely week weather wise, such great summer days we are having here in Perth. My boys enjoyed a frolic in the waves, along with their first kayak ride with their Uncle. I took a book with me in the hopes of reading but it was just too much fun watching them! I’m now sitting in the comfort of my air-conditioned home, writing my wrap up for the week.
My reading in the past week was defined largely by World War II fiction and non fiction. Last week, the novel The German Girl seemed to kick-start by interest. I then read The Toymaker, The Beast’s Garden and finally a non fiction offering, Born Survivors. Each was just as compelling as the other in their own way. I have already reviewed The Toymaker but I also plan to review The German Girl and The Beast’s Garden. Look out for these if you enjoy historical fiction, with an emphasis on World War II. My final book this week was one of light comfort – Di Morrissey’s, A Distant Journey. It was just what I needed after some heavier novels.
As I mentioned above, this week I reviewed The Toymaker. I also reviewed an Australian Pacific War saga novel titled The Turning Tide. The final review I posted this week was an Aussie rural novel that included a focus on the Vietnam War experience, titled The family Secret. If any of these interest you I will leave the links below.
If you are stopping by my blog this week, I thank you for taking the time to pop past. If you should have any comments or thoughts on my reviews or books I always welcome them! Have a great week!
