Books, books, books

I was at home sick last week so I had some time to catch up with my reading (OK, and sitcoms). Here are a few titles that made my sickness period less boring:
Where we belong - Emily Giffin
Ever since I read 'Baby Proof' I loved her writing so of course I had to read her last book. It's an easy to read story about a complex theme like adoption.

The Drowning - Camilla Läckberg
I'm a nut for Swedish thrillers (blame the Millennium trilogy for that). This is the 6th book of the Fjallbacka series and although I liked the stories better in the past books, this one ends with a good cliffhanger, unfortunately the English version of the new one, The Lighthouse, will be out only in 2013.

Shantaram - Gregory D. Roberts
I've asked my friends for book suggestions, asking them to think very well before suggesting a werewolves or S&M trilogy, really depressing or sci-fi novels since I hate all these genres so after I got Shantaram from 2 different people then I decided to give it a shot. It is a true story about a guy who escapes to India and his life in the slums. I'm in the middle of it right now and I still can't tell if I love it or if I hate it because it is too descriptive. I love descriptions, especially in travel books and novels about places but in this case it can be too much, let's see how the rest turns out.

Food Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots - Nicole S. Young
I've discovered a new passion, photographing food, so I thought I should at least find out how to do it properly. It's not a cheap hobby but at least I get to eat my models after the shooting!
