It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey

List the books completed last week, the books currently being read and the books you plan to read this week.

A week seems to fly by so fast and although this one started quietly we've had family for the weekend to liven things up. Mother's Day here as in some other parts of the world so hope it was a happy day for everyone.

Books I reviewed last week:

The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent
Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother by Xinran
The Shifting Fog by Kate Morton
The Wilding by Maria McCann

Books I read last week:

The Taste of Sorrow by Jude Morgan
The Life O'Reilly By Brian Cohen
Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman
I Can See You by Karen Rose
English Trifle by Josi Kilpack

Currently I'm reading:

Angelology by Danielle Trussoni
Ngaio Marsh:Her Life in Crime by Joanne Drayton

Next I plan to read:
Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn
The Saffron Gate by Linda Holeman
I also have two that need to be read for scheduled posts at the end of the following week so hopefully will fit at least one of them in as well.
A Vintage Murder by Ngaio Marsh
The Strangers in the House by Georges Simenon.

Have a great reading week!


  1. Ngaio Marsh and Saffron Gate have caught my eye! I'm Eager to hear what you think!!

    Have a great week! :)

  2. The Mistress of Rome is currently waiting for me at my library! And I have Angelology on my list for this week as well! Hope you have a great week.

  3. Love the cover of Saffron Gate... I havent heard of that one before.

    Enjoy your books :)

  4. I just received Angelology. I look forward to hearing what you think about it.

  5. Looks like everyone is reading Angelology this week, and I'd never even heard of it before. I'm really interested to hear what you think of it, I may have to pick it up.

    Have a fabulous reading week!

  6. Great review on the Heretic's Daughter. I really would love to read this one as I love books about the Salem Witch Trails, my favorite is A Break With Charity by Ann Rinaldi, which is a YA book. Have a great week.

  7. I enjoyed The Life O'Reilly. And the two books you picked for next week look good!

  8. Oh, I'm so jealous! I want to read Angelology! I got Mistress of Rome last week and am looking forward to it. I'm currently reading Roanoke: A Novel of Elizabethan Intrigue by Margaret Lawrence. Happy Reading! Here's my Mailbox.

  9. Thanks all - have finished Angelology now - really enjoyed it and hope you will too.

  10. I love Neil Gaiman's short stories and have been more impressed with those then his novels. All though, Neverwhere was fun.

    The Ngaio Marsh bio looks great. I love this type of biography and just ordered Every Other Inch a Lady about Beatrice Lillie the other day. I guess I am going to have to look out for this Ms. Marsh's bio now.

  11. Looks like you've got some great books coming up! I hope you enjoy them all :o)

  12. Some great books there! I'd most like to read Mistress and Angelology. I enjoyed Fragile Things and hope you do too! Actually, I just need to go check out your review, don't I? ;-)

  13. Jen, Angelology was really good and Mistress is proving to be equally so.
