Weekly Round-Up

The last few weeks have been busy and I have been not shared as much new material as usual. So I wanted to end this week by sharing what I’ve been sipping on.

Here are the books I’ve read and the Cafe delights I’ve enjoyed:

Both books I read this week were books I discovered because of this blog and a couple lovely follower’s recommendations, thank you.

My first recommendation read was
“The Marquise of O”
A lovely short read full of mystery and intrigue. The Marquise of O is a book by Heinrich Von Kleist translated from German. I enjoyed reading it and pining over all the questions it left me with.

Rated 4.5 on amazon.com

Subverting the 18th-century notion of the infallibility of man and reveals the true ambiguity and caprice of humanity.

Mid week Café Con Leche
I got a chance to go to my favorite Cuban spot and enjoy the best Café Con Leche I know of. If you’re ever in pdx I hope you get a chance to enjoy one!

My second recommendation was
“When You Reach Me”
A wonderfully mysterious YA science fiction read, written by Rebecca Stead. It was definitely a page turner, and I really enjoyed reading it. The writing kept me enthralled and the story was a great one.
I love a good twist, I will be recommending this book a lot.

Rated 4.6 on amazon.com
