It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

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'm sure you have all heard about the tragedy that hit my peaceful little country over the weekend. I won't say too much about it because everything that can be said has already been said, and in much better ways that I can say it. I just want to extend my condolences to everyone who lost a loved one these past few days. My heart breaks for you. I will always remember the words of one of the survivors from Utøya: "If one man can show so much hatred, imagine how much love we can show together."

Show some love today. You will make the world a better place.

Yesterday was my birthday, and to celebrate a little I'm having a birthday giveaway here on the blog. It's open internationally, and you can win a book of your choice! Enter here until 31 July.

I had a nice, quiet birthday at home. Mum made me pancakes and Dad came home from a fishing trip with some coalfish, so I'm happy. The fish is delicious warm, but even better cold with potatoes, cucumber and sour cream. Yummy!

I don't have much to report in bookish news. I'm still reading The Devil Colony by James Rollins. I thought maybe it would be strange to read a thriller after last Friday's events, but I found reading fiction actually helped. I'll finish it this week, and then it's onto another review book, Hard Spell by Justin Gustainis. I hear it's good, so I'm looking forward to it.

A little different format for this meme today, but I hope you understand. Take care of each other out there.

Happy birthday! I love nice quiet ones :)

Hard Spell sounds interesting - I will have to keep my eyes open for it.

And *hugs* - your country has taken a hard blow and it hurts my heart to think of the act.

My husband's family is from your country. The violence there is very shocking. I am sad for you, but I will do as you ask and be kind to all I meet.

Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading?! And don't forget to enter my July giveaway!

The wackiest book I'm reading this week is Bagelmania. Please come see what else I'm reading.
