It's Monday, What Are You Reading (13)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.

I had a good reading week – I read almost one and a half books and to me, that's a lot.

I finished The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz. I really liked this one, it was suspenseful, fresh and very funny. Will definitely be reading the rest of the series soon.

The Hot Rock by Donald E. Westlake. This is a fast and light read about a career thief with bad luck.

Probably Summer Lightning by Tamara McKinley for the Aussie Author Challenge. My copy is in Norwegian, and seeing as I haven't read a book in Norwegian since Easter, I'm actually looking forward to reading my own language again.

What are you reading this week?

Is it normal in Norway to have to read books in a foreign tongue? I can't imagine that being fun.

Hilde said...

No no, most popular foreign books get translated into Norwegian. It's just that I read a lot of books written in English, and I prefer reading them in the original language. I think it's because of my job; I'm a translator and whenever I read a Norwegian translation I keep back-translating to English in my head. Besides, I love reading in English (and French, but I'm not very good at it).

Sounds like good books! Enjoy your week.

Your week sounds good :) I'll have to go back and read your Harry Potter reviews when I finish the first book!
