I'm on vacation right now so you would think a lot of reading was getting done. But I'm spending time with family and getting a ton of sleep (I didn't realize I was actually that tired!) so this was a remarkably slow reading week. I hope to get back on track soon when I go on vacation from my vacation (I'll explain later) and I can while away the hours with my books.
Besides the books below, I also acquired the newest volumes (in Japanese) of Hana Yori mo Hana no Gotoku (花よりも花の如く) by Minako Narita and Fumi Yoshinaga's two series, Ooku (大奥) and What Did You Eat Yesterday? (昨日何食べた?). Yoshinaga's works are translated into English and are worth a read in my opinion. Ooku, in particular, has a dense, fascinating storyline (alternate history of Edo-period Japan) and I'm learning a lot by reading it.
As a side note, cover images may be lacking in the weeks ahead because I'm using my iPad to post and it's a pain in the butt to link in images.
[To rehash the concept :: post what you read last week, what you're reading now, and what you plan to read this week. If you have a review of the book(s), great! If you have a picture of the book(s), wonderful! If you have a book giveaway, fantastic! If you just list the title(s) of the book(s), not a problem! Make it as simple or as complex as you need it to be. At least, that's the message I got. This version of the meme is hosted by Jen and Kellee of Teach Mentor Text, which, in turn, was inspired by Sheila over at Book Journey, who hosts the original It's Monday! What Are You Reading?]
