It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey. It's where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It's a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over via the link above and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.


Books Read Last Week (click on titles for review):
Panic in Box C by John Dickson Carr
The Savage Garden by Mark Mills
A Pair of Jade Frogs by Ye Xin

Currently Reading:
Scorpions: The Battles & Triumphs of FDR's Great Supreme Court Justices by Noah Feldman: tells the story of four great justices: their relationship with Roosevelt, with each other, and with the turbulent world of the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War. It also serves as a history of the modern Constitution itself, exploring the constitutional battles of the Roosevelt era (1940s and 1950s) and their contemporary relevance.

Vane Pursuit by Charlotte MacLeod: A dastardly gang of rogues is sneaking around Balaclava county, snatching priceless antique weather vanes. Before they disappear entirely, Helen Shandy decides to photograph as many as she can for the Balaclava Historical Society files and the Smithsonian Institute. A good thing, too. Helen gets a shot of the vane atop the Lumpkin Soap Factory only hours before thieves set the building ablaze and run off with the treasure. Both Helen and her husband Peter Shandy find themselves doing battle with ruffians before the mystery is solved.

Books that spark my interest:
Seven Gothic Tales by Isak Dinesen
The Affair of the 39 Cufflinks by James Anderson
The Last Matryoshka by Joyce Yarrow
Curious Death of Peter Artedi: A Mystery in the History of Science by Theodor W. Pietsch
