It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday What Are You Reading?, a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey, is 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 to Journey 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 reviews):
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
Our Lady of the Lost & Found by Diane Schoemperlen
The Agency: The Body at the Tower by Y. S. Lee

Didn't get quite as many done this past week. That darn Woman in White kept holding up the works!

Reading Now:
One Step Behind by Henning Mankell. On Midsummer's Eve, three role-playing teens dressed in 18th C garb are shot in a secluded Swedish nature reserve. When one of Inspector Kurt Wallander's most trusted colleagues--someone whose help he hoped to rely on to solve the crime--also turns up dead, Wallender knows the murders are related. But with the only clue a picture of a woman no one in Sweden seems to know, he can't begin to imagine how. Reeling from his father's death and facing his own deteriorating health, Wallander tracks the lethal progress of the killer. Locked in a desperate effort to catch him before he strikes again, Wallander always seems to be just one step behind.

Books that spark my interest:
The Return of the Dancing Master by Henning Mankell
Death by Water by Kerry Greenwood (a Phryne Fisher mystery!)

I'm also looking ahead to The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge and can't wait till Nov 26th when I can start on:
A Christmas Carol & Other Christmas Writings by Charles Dickens
Mistletoe Mysteries collected by Charlotte MacLeod
Christmas Stalkings collected by Charlotte MacLeod
