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 (click on titles for review):
Standford White: Letters to His Family by Claire Nicholas White, ed
Pearls Before Swine by Margery Allingham
A Dark Time by Dennis Bradford

Currently Reading:
The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu by Sax Rohmer (last book for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Challenge): Meet the ultimate villain, a Chinese master criminal of untold wealth, intellect, and occult powers whose goal is nothing less than world conquest.  He is Dr. Fu-Manchu, a master of disguise who commands the criminal societies, or tongs, of Asia.  His foil is Denis Nayland Smith, an Englishman with vague connections to Scotland Yard, and his chemist friend, Dr. Petrie. Can Smith and Petrie rely on pluck and luck to thwart the evil doctor's dastardly plans?

Books that spark my interest:
Fatal Induction  by Bernadette Pajer
Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen
The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare

Hi there! I'm reading Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris. So far, it's pretty good.

You have an interesting title as well.
