It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

One Year Anniversary Party for It’s Monday What Are You Reading! Happy Anniversary!

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):
A Graveyard to Let by Carter Dickson
The Eustace Diamonds by Anthony Trollope
Why Shoot a Butler by Geogette Heyer
Death in the Garden by Elizabeth Ironside
All Booked Up by Terrie Curran

Currently Reading: The Leavenworth Case by Anna Katharine Green. Horatio Leavenworth, a rich merchant and adoptive parent and guardian to his two nieces, Mary and Eleanore, is found shot to death at the table in the library of his home. All the doors are locked and everything points to a member of the household. Evidence--a broken key, an incriminating letter, an overheard bit of conversation--would seem to point towards the nieces. The story is narrated by Everett Raymond, junior member of the law firm which represents the Leavenworth family. Published in 1878, this novel is often considered to be the first full-length detective story written by a woman.

Books that spark my interest:
Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon (STILL impatiently waiting for this one to be available from the library)
Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald: An American Woman's Life by Linda Wagner-Martin OR
Zubin Mehta: the Score of My Life by Zubin Mehta (I am in need of a new "Z" book to replace the Zorro which I could not finish. These two auto/biographies looked like interesting candidates. I may wind up reading both.)
The Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippman
