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):
Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald: An American Woman's Life by Linda Wagner-Martin
The Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippmann
Something New by P. G. Wodehouse
The Silk Stocking Murders by Anthony Berkeley

Currently Reading:
Zubin Mehta: The Score of My Life by Zubin Mehta Captures the life of this celebrated musician, including a review of his childhood days in Bombay, his early education in music in Europe, his great success with orchestras around the world, and his receipt of the United Nations Lifetime Achievement Peace and Tolerance Award. - (Baker & Taylor)

Up Next:
The Thornthwaite Inheritance by Gareth P Jones: Ovid and Lorelli Thornthwaite have been trying to kill each other for so long that neither twin can remember which act of attempted murder came first. But whoever struck first, trying to take each other's lives is simply what they do. Until one day a lawyer arrives at their house to take stock of its contents, and his accompanying son attracts their attention. Soon a new battle evolves - one in which the twins have to work together to solve the mystery of their parents' deaths. Can Lorelli and Ovid overcome their old animosities, and will they ever get to finish that game of chess?

Leave It To Psmith by P. G. Wodehouse: The next Blandings Castle book for my Wodehouse Challenge.

What an interesting list of books! I'm planning to read some P.G. Wodehouse very soon - got several of his works downloaded onto my iPad. I love Bertie Wooster!

Happy reading this week!

I think I would love the Zelda book...I'm currently reading The Paris Wife, about Ernest Hemingway's first marriage and the gang of expatriates they hung out with, including the Fitzgeralds....

Loved The Girl in the Green Raincoat.

Here's MY MONDAY MEMES post.
