It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (35)

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?’ is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It’s a great post to organise yourself. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.


Hello Book lovers! I hope you had amazing reading week. My week in reading was okay. I spent lot of time watching movies last week. I went to watch Incredible 2 which was fun and I so loved Jack-Jack. ❤ I also watched movies on TV – Moana (first time watch and I’m regretting why I didn’t watch it before), How to train your Dragon (again!), Daddy Day Care (I watched this first time and it was fun and entertaining).

Last Week I read-

Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault (Glass Vault #1) by Candace Robinson

If all the World by Joseph Coelho, Allison Colpoys

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead by Charlie Laidlaw

33142013The Things We Learn When We’re Dead is about how small decisions can have profound and unintended consequences, but how we can sometimes get a second chance.

On the way home from a dinner party, Lorna Love steps into the path of an oncoming car. When she wakes up she is in what appears to be a hospital – but a hospital in which her nurse looks like a young Sean Connery, she is served wine for supper, and everyone avoids her questions. 

It soon transpires that she is in Heaven, or on HVN, because HVN is a lost, dysfunctional spaceship, and God the aging hippy captain. She seems to be there by accident… or does God have a higher purpose after all?

Despite that, The Things We Learn When We’re Dead is neither sci-fi nor fantasy. It is a book about memory and how, if we could remember things slightly differently, would we also be changed?

In HVN, Lorna can at first remember nothing. But as her memories return – some good, some bad – she realises that she has decisions to make and that, maybe, she can find a way back home. 

It’s interesting so far. 

Joy of Pregnancy 2nd Edition: The Complete, Candid, and Reassuring Companion for Parents-to-Be

36204928Women are celebrating pregnancy like never before: with an attitude of cheerful anticipation, optimism, pride, growth, and empowerment!

The Joy of Pregnancy reflects this positive spirit by emphasizing what’s normal, fun, and even funny about pregnancy. In this thoroughly revised and updated second edition of her path-breaking book, author Tori Kropp covers recent advances in medical knowledge and changes in typical hospital procedures.

The Joy of Pregnancy’s month-by-month format provides the essential information that expectant parents crave: how the baby is developing, how the mother’s body is changing, how to prepare for birth and baby, and the pros and cons of various pregnancy and childbirth-related choices parents face.

Kropp’s tone is reassuring and authoritative, but also non-judgmental and often humorous. Questions and answers from her online community Stork Site®, highlighted tips, and quick-reference facts make the text fun to read as well as informative. With this book by their side, expectant parents will be prepared to take an active role in ensuring a healthy, happy, and truly joyful pregnancy.

I finished only 15% of the book but still it is good so far and I liked all good-to-know informations in the book.  

Next This Week-
