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):
Third Girl by Agatha Christie
The Porcupine by Julian Barnes
Flaubert's Parrot by Julian Barnes
Behold, Here's Poison by Georgette Heyer

Currently Reading:
Victorian Tales of Mystery & Detection: An Oxford Anthology by Michael Cox (ed & selected by)
In this entertaining anthology Michael Cox ha assembled a wide ranging selection of 31 stories from authors such as Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Mr. Henry Wood and Fergus Hume. There are police detectives, gentleman amateurs, lady detectives, professional consulting detectives and even an "anti-detective." The villains against whom they pit their wits are equally various, as are their crimes--from fraud and forgery to theft and abduction, and, of course, murder most foul.

Books that spark my interest:
Death of a Doxy by Rex Stout
Intruder in the Dust by William Faulkner
Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer
The Cat Who Could Read Backwards by Lillian Jackson Braun
The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman

Hmmm... the Barnes titles alone make me more interested in seeing what they are all about! I love anthologies as well, and just finished reading Drood, which made me interested in reading some of Wilkie Collin's work (and Dickens, of course), so I'm going to have to look that one up for sure! Enjoy your reading week!
