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):
 Murder Most Puzzling by Lillian S. Robinson 
The Foods of North Italy by Luigi Veronelle 
Some Danger Involved by Will Thomas
She Woke to Darkness by Brett Halliday
Currently Reading: 
The Penguin Book of Victorian Women in Crime by Michael Sims (ed):  It is the Victorian era and society is both entranced by and fearful of that suspicious character known as the New Woman. She rides those new- fangled bicycles and doesn't like to be told what to do. And, in crime fiction, such female detectives as Loveday Brooke, Dorcas Dene, and Lady Molly of Scotland Yard are out there shadowing suspects, crawling through secret passages, fingerprinting corpses, and sometimes committing a lesser crime in order to solve a murder. Michael Sims has brought together all of the era's great crime-fighting females- plus a few choice crooks, including Four Square Jane and the Sorceress of the Strand.
Books that spark my interest:

Star Trek & Philosophy: The Wrath of Kant by Jason T Eberl & Kevin S Decker (eds)
A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott
and two Review Request books that I need to get to:
Death in the Memorial Garden by Kathie Deviny
Face of the Enemy by Joanne Dobson & Beverlee Graves Myers

I could resist no longer, and I started reading Steven Brust's TIASSA. and I'm already 100 pages in. mostly dialog at the beginning makes for a quick read.
