What I'm reading right now is a book I am keeping temporarily for a friend who is renovating. I have a bunch of her books; this is the one of those I've gotten from her pile.
Cloud Mountain by Aimee Liu is based on the story of the author's grandparents, one of whom was from China. The book was published 1998. I am interested what this book has to say about a period of history that interests me - 1930s-1940s China.
Tending Roses (Tending Roses Series, Book 1) by Lisa Wingate is about a young family relocating to Missouri and trying to persuade their Grandma Rose to leave her farm and enter a nursing home. Emotional and full of memories and hard decisions.
Flower Net: A Red Princess Mystery (Red Princess Mysteries)A thriller set in Beijing and Los Angeles. The book was nominated for the Edgar Award for Best First Mystery.
All in all, I found a few good books in my friend's pile! What books are you reading this week?
