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.
Only one book behind!  Now to catch up....

Books Read (click on titles for review): 
A Spoonful of Sugar: A Nanny's Story by Brenda Ashford
Black Widow by Patrick Quentin  
The African Queen by C. S. Forester

Currently Reading: 
In the Shadow of Gotham by Stefanie Pintoff: The wreck of the steamship General Slocum in 1904 cost Det. Simon Ziele of the New York City police both his fiance and the full use of his right arm. In response to those losses, Ziele has abandoned big-city policing for the quiet dullness of Dobson, a town in Westchester County, but a brutal murder interrupts his retreat from the world. Someone slashes and bludgeons to death Sarah Wingate, a Columbia mathematics graduate student whose brilliance evoked jealousy in her peers, in her home under circumstances that resemble the notorious murders of Lizzie Borden's parents. Ziele's investigation is soon co-opted by Alistair Sinclair, a student of criminology who's convinced he knows the culprit's identity.

Books that spark my interest:
The Hollow Chest by Alice Tilton
A Private History of Awe by Scott Sanders 
The Second Woman by Kenneth Cameron
