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

Thank you aviets
for your recommendtion. 🙂

 

What have you been sipping on?

    • I don’t read a lot of contemporary fiction but “Me Before You” and “The Fault In Our Stars” are both extremely popular. Both are well rated, and both are on my tbr list. Another is “The Perks of Being a Wall Flower.” I’m doing a post on it today which will include 2 others as well.

      • I know that’s the problem with a lot of current Contemporary fiction (hence why I don’t read a lot of it) It’s hard to find something good that isn’t mostly romance. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was really good, but a little gritty for my taste (so I didn’t continue the series) however it isn’t romancy. Here is the link for the post from today: https://cafebookbean.com/2016/05/03/contemporary-reading/
        “And Then There Were None” and “The Thirteenth Tale” were not Romancy. I know a lot of good books that are technically Contemporary in the “realistic” sense and when written, but they are not modern/current.
