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):
Bone Harvest by Mary Logue
Robert Kennedy: In His Own Words by Edwin O. Guthman & Jeffrey Shulman, eds.
Heartless by Gail Carriger
The Prop by Pete Hautman
No Body by Nancy Pickard

Currently Reading:
Seven Gothic Tales by Isak Dinesen: Originally published in 1934, Seven Gothic Tales, the first book by "one of the finest and most singular artists of our time" (The Atlantic), is a modern classic. Here are seven exquisite tales combining the keen psychological insight characteristic of the modern short story with the haunting mystery of the nineteenth-century Gothic tale, in the tradition of writers such as Goethe, Hoffmann, and Poe.

Random Walk
by Lawrence Block: A fantastic journey starts one step at a time. Guthrie's got a voice in his head, and it's telling him to go for a walk. So he does--across America. Along the way he meets up with other souls searching for something more from life. And at his side is Sara, a woman whose natural sight has been lost but replaced with mystical visions. Before long remarkable things are happening to all of the walkers. Meanwhile, Mark, a successful businessman who happens to be a serial killer, is also roaming the American landscape. Will Mark cross paths with Guthrie and his soulful band, and if he does, will good triumph over evil?

Seems to me like you had an awesome reading week last week too if I remember right? I need a few weeks of 5 books reviews... :)

I have such guilt that I never made it through the Book Thief. I really should give it another try since everyone else seemed to have such high praise for it

Thanks for sharing....

Oooh, thanks for mentioning Bone Harvest! That is right up my alley, as I read suspense thrillers mostly! Have a good week, Rae

The Book Thief is my very favorite book. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it.

I've fallen a little behind on the Parasol Protectorate. I still need to read Blameless. Enjoy your week!

I just read your review of "No Body". Though rated only a 3, it does appeal to me as one of those light reads that sometimes are just what we need. The Book Thief has caught my eye too.
