It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event now hosted by Sheila at One Person's Book Journey

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

  Last week I read:
Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill - review
The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig
The Rose of Sebastopol by Katherine McMahon
Reviews to come for those last two.
 I posted reviews for
The Gathering Night by Margaret Elphinstone here
The Tudor Rose by Margaret Campbell Barnes here
Currently I'm reading:
The 19th Wife
by David Ebershoff
If I'm lucky I may get this finished but its doubtful. This is going to be a week of very little time for reading as we leave on Wednesday for a family wedding at the weekend and won't be back until the following Tuesday.
Do take a moment to enter my!


  1. I've had the 19th Wife for ages now but am not sure about it. I'll be looking forward to your review to see if it's worth a read.

  2. I have heard of the Tudo Rose but not the rest of them. I hope that you are enjoying your current read - it has an interesting title!

    Here is mine if you wanted to have look

  3. Have a great time at the wedding!

    The 19th Wife sounds good.

  4. I read The Secret History of the Pink Carnation recently too. I just reviewed it this past week. What did you think of it?

    Here is what I'm reading.

  5. The 19th Wife looks like an interesting cover (is that a knife?) I love historical fiction.

  6. You had a great week! I do so want to read The 19th Wife! Happy reading. My Monday:

  7. This list is all new to me. Thanks! Have fun at the wedding!

  8. I just bought the 19th Wife. I look forward to your thoughts on it.

  9. Some nice historical fiction. Have a lovely time at the wedding and happy reading, however much you get to do.

  10. Christina - I thought Pink Carnation was a realy fun entertaining read.

    Sheila - yes, its a knife!

    19th Wife is quite different - interesting historical subject combined with a murder mystery.

    Thanks for the good wishes - fun time ahead!

  11. This is the second blog I've seen The 19th Wife on. It's a book I really want to read. Have a great reading week!

  15. The cover for the 19th Wife actually scares me a little haha :D

  16. I've been wanting to read Someone Knows My Name - just haven't gotten to it yet. Glad to see you enjoyed it so much. Have a great week of reading!

  17. Hi Cat,
    This is my first time visiting your blog and I enjoyed my time here!! I want to read The 19th Wife too...the cover you have is a bit sinister with her holding that knife!! Have a great time at the wedding!

  18. Good reading week last week - I'm not familiar with any of those books so I'm off to check them out. I have The 19th Wife on my want-to-read list and need to get to it soon. Enjoy your time at the family wedding!

  19. I'm planning to start the Pink Carnation series!
    Happy reading!

  20. Lydia - nice to know someone else has read The 19th Wife.

    That cover is a bit sinister but as yet it doesn't seem relevant. It's a very interesting book which I'm enjoying.

    Julie - Someone Knows My Name is wonderful and definitely worth reading.

    Welcome Staci & robby - hope you'll visit again

  21. These books are all new to me, I've not read much historical fiction lately but I'll have to check some of these out.

    Hope you have a great time at the wedding :o)

  22. The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig is favorite series for a coworker of mine, I will have to give them a try.
    Have a great week and off to join your contest.:)

  23. They look interesting! Have fun!

  24. I love books about The Tudors so maybe I will check that one out. I am also planning on getting into the Pink Carnation books

  25. You had a great week of reading! I have been wanting to read Someone Knows My Name and The 19th Wife for a while, they both look good. I hope you have fun at the wedding!

  26. Whitney - both are very good!

    Pink Carnation is enormous fun!

    Thanks again for good wishes - nothing like a good old family gathering.! :-)

  27. The 19th Wife is on my wishlist! Waiting to hear your thoughts on it! Have a good vacation!
