It's Monday September 2nd 2013! What are you reading?

It's Monday! What are You Reading! is a weekly hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey. This weekly is meant to keep you people updated on what I read the last week and what I am planning to read the upcoming week.

The last week before my vacation starts. I am really looking forward to some time off. Work has been crazy the last weeks and I have not been reading as much as I had hoped. 
This week I stopped reading one book and finished a few. The book I stopped was  My Notorious Life by Kate Manning, though it was not a bad story the use of language disturbed my reading to much and I feel  that I might enjoy it better in translation (eeeeek I know). I finished On the Rim by Florida Ann Town which was filled with recognition. Ruin Value was a very interesting detective story mostly because of its setting in Nuremberg 1945.

I am currently reading Top Down by Jim Lehrer



Next up are The Last Winter of Dani Lancing by P.D. Viner, The Two Hotel Francforts by David Leavitt and How to be a Good Wife by Emma Chapman

I am reading "Lean In" along with Rebecca and Allison's book club and I might pick up a new Netgalley or the book that was sent to me the other day. I have also agreed to do another bookclub reading "The Book Thief" so I'm totally overcommitted this month :( ANd there is the classic club spin too, but I will start that next week :D Enjoy your reading week!

There is nothing wrong with reading a book in translation, I think, so go ahead, especially if it will make you enjoy the book more!

Enjoy your vacation and come back rested and well read etc!
Fijne vakantie,
Kind regards,

I like it that you bravely put down a book you were not enjoying. Inspiring for us all!

Good for you to stop reading a book you couldn't enjoy. And sometimes, translations can be good, I hope you'll be able to get back to it!

I haven't heard of any of the books you mention today, but I'll be on the look-out for your reviews.

Have a great week.
