It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Whew. Well, as predicted I finished a few books at once this past week. I finished and reviewed Alan Hollinghurst's magnificent The Line of Beauty; what a book. I said goodbye to Climates, by Andre Maurois, a melodramatic French novel from the 1920s about life and love. And I finished up Take This Man, a novel about a Frenchwoman who marries her Malian best friend to keep him from being deported. Reviews for both of these are scheduled; I'm trying to get into the habit of writing my reviews as soon as possible after I finish the book, so that I don't forget to write them. It does mean my reviews will be a little more on the raw side but that's OK.
But now I have started new books!
I'm looking for one more to round out the selection, probably the Macintyre book. I'll keep you posted! What are you reading?
