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):
The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman
The Wyndham Case by Jill Paton Walsh
Heavy Weather by P. G. Wodehouse
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
No Wind of Blame by Georgette Heyer
The Giant Rat of Sumatra by Richard L. Boyer
Intruder in the Dust by William Faulkner

Currently Reading:
Queen of the Flowers by Kerry Greenwood: Crime strikes close to home in this latest installment of Greenwood's charming series (The Castlemaine Murders, etc.) featuring 1920s Aussie amateur sleuth, Phryne Fisher. While the town of St. Kilda prepares for the 1928 Flower Parade, Phryne's adopted daughter, Ruth, disappears after learning her father's identity from her birthmother, Anna Ross. Phryne adds Ruth to her caseload, which coincidentally includes the search for another missing young woman, Rose Weston.

The Cat Who Could Read Backwards by Lillian Jackson Braun
A Piece of Justice by Jill Paton Walsh
What Alice Knew by Paula Marantz Cohen
Past Tense by Catherine Aird
The Man on the Balcony by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo

I read THE GIANT RAT OF SUMATRA many years ago, Bev. LOVE the title straight from the pages of Conan Doyle. A very fun pastiche.

You are experiencing the opposite of me this week with reading. Whereas I can't seem to finish any books you seem to not be able to not finish any books. :)
