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.

I'm still playing catch-up from not reading while on vacation.  I've also hit a bit of a slump so it's been up-hill work on every book I've picked up so far--no matter how much I'm liking it.

Books Read (click on titles for review):
The 39 Steps by John Buchan 
Fatal Induction by Bernadette Pajer 
The Nine Wrong Answers by John Dickson Carr

Currently Reading:
File No. 113 by Émile Gaboriau: On the surface, the crime seems simple. A bank's secure safe is robbed. One of the two men who holds the key must be guilty. One key-holder is the bank's owner who lives above the bank with his family, the other is the bank's trusted manager-a man like a son to the owner. What if neither is guilty? How did this safe, with every security measure known and employed at the time, get robbed? Leave it to Monsieur Lecoq of the Sûreté, a policeman of many disguises and much guile to uncover the devastating truth of deceit, betrayal, lies, murder and sordid family histories that lead to the crime.

Books that spark my interest:
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell 
Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen
The Fifth Man by Manning Coles
