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 (click on titles for review):
Dracula by Bram Stoker 
Murder With a Past by Ellery Queen 
[Dracula was quite a time-consuming read...]
Currently Reading:
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery: When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables send for a boy orphan to help them out at their farm, they mistakenly get Anne Shirley, a feisty, independent, but warm-hearted eleven-year-old girl. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination win the hearts of her reluctant foster parents and everyone in the community. But not a day goes by without some memorable adventure or prank in the tragicomedy of her life.
Death of a God by S. T. Haymon: It is with a minimum of enthusiasm that Inspector Ben Jurnet agrees to attend a conceert of the rock group Second Coming with his fiancee, Miriam, who has miraculously obtained tickets. If nothing else, he will find out what all the fuss is about. But to the inspector's surpise, he is caught up in the music, and especially in the charisma of the lead singer, Loy Tanner, a hometown boy who's made good. Still entranced, he is shocked the next morning when the body of Tanner is found hanging from a cross in Angelby Market Place garden.
Books that spark my interest:
Pearls Before Swine by Margery Allingham
The Dead Witness: A Connoisseur's Collection of Victorian Detective Stories by Michael Sims (ed & intro)

If I did not have to sleep, I would reread Anne of Green Gables.
