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.
Still matter what I do.  Even having upped my reading last week to five books.  May have to face not meeting my reading goal this year.....

Books Read (click on titles for review): 
Death Has Green Fingers by Lionel Black 
Blood Makes Noise by Gregory Widen
Inland Passage by George Harmon Coxe 
Choice of Evils by E. X. Ferrars 
The Talking Sparrow Murders by Darwin L. Teilhet

Currently Reading: 
Murder as a Fine Art by David Morrell: Thomas De Quincey, infamous for his memoir Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, is the major suspect in a series of ferocious mass murders identical to ones that terrorized London forty-three years earlier. The blueprint for the killings seems to be De Quincey's essay "On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts." Desperate to clear his name but crippled by opium addiction, De Quincey is aided by his devoted daughter Emily and a pair of determined Scotland Yard detectives. In Murder as a Fine Art, David Morrell plucks De Quincey, Victorian London, and the Ratcliffe Highway murders from history. Fogbound streets become a battleground between a literary star and a brilliant murderer, whose lives are linked by secrets long buried but never forgotten.. [Review request book]

Books that spark my interest:
The Hollow Chest by Alice Tilton
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
The Secret History by Donna Tartt

I'm currently halfway through THE HOUSE OF MIRTH written in a bold and beautiful manner by Wharton, and I'm hoping to read THE AGE OF INNOCENCE next.
