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):
Oscar Wilde & the Vampire Murders by Gyles Brandreth
The House of Paper by Carlos María Domínguez
The Secret of Lost Things by Sheridan Hay
The Detections of Dr. Sam: Johnson by Lillian de la Torre

Currently Reading:
Panic in Box C by John Dickson Carr: Dr. Gideon Fell is all at sea. Sailing from England to America with a writer friend, Philip Knox, Dr. Gideon Fell, that eminent crime solver, encounters some odd characters who are fated to have a volcanic effect on his stay in the U. S. Prominent among them is the imperious Lady Tiverton (the former actress, Margery Vane), her latest young lover, and her longtime female companion. All wind up at a dress rehearsal in a Connecticut theater endowed by Miss Vane. Murder stops the show, but provides Dr. Fell with an opportunity to display his own singular talents.

Books that spark my interest:
The Savage Garden by Mark Mills
Seven Gothic Tales by Isak Dinesen
Scorpions: The Battles & Triumphs of FDR's Great Supreme Court Justices by Noah Feldman
The Affair of the 39 Cufflinks by James Anderson

I luv mysteries. The name Dr. Fell seems very familiar to me. Don't know why.

How did you like Oscar Wilde and the Vampire Murders? I must admit to a soft spot for that type of fiction and it's oblique references. :)
