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):
The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu by Sax Rohmer
Timeless by Gail Carriger
Ahmed & the Oblivion Machines by Ray Bradbury
The House of a Thousand Candles by Meredith Nicholas

Currently Reading:
 O' Artful Death by Sarah Stewart Taylor:  Art historian Sweeney St. George's interest in an unusual late-Victorian gravestone sculpture takes her to a former art colony in Vermont. Her arrival coincides with the suspicious death of an old local lady who believed that the young woman in the grave Sweeney is seeking was murdered. Sweeney investigates, attempting to find out who carved the beautiful monument and what really happened to the young woman. Her search into local family backgrounds inevitably turns up clues to the old lady's murder as well. A nicely puzzled plot, a closely confined rural setting, remarkable characterizations, and eminently readable prose commend this debut to all collections. [Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information]

Fatal Induction  by Bernadette Pajer
Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen
