It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

hosted by Sheila

 A weekly meme where we list the books completed last week, the books currently being read and the books we plan to read this week.

  The last two weeks have been quite stressful and at times like that I fall back into comfort reading - mostly suspense and thrillers. I did finish..
She-Wolves: The Women Who Ruled Britain Before Elizabeth by Helen Castor
and also read:
Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny
Pray For Silence by Linda Castillo
The Leopard by Jo Nesbo
Pearl by Deirdre Purcell
Reviews added
The Doctor and the Diva by Adrienne McDonnell
The Golden Mean by Annabel Lyon
The Memory of Love by Aminatta Forna
Currently reading:
The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli - I started this one but wasn't in the mood so put it aside. Some lovely writing but the story didn't grab me so it may yet end up a DNF.
The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley
The Devil that Danced on the Water by Aminatta Forna - a daughter's memoir (NF)

Coming up next

Redemption by Laurel Dewey
Prophecy: Clash of the Kings by M.K.Hume - the first in her new trilogy about Merlin.

Have a great reading week!
