Monday Reading

Weekly meme where we discuss the books you've read
and those you plan to read in the coming week.

After the fun and exciting Book Blogger Appreciation Week last week, a vacation and being sick, I have a lot of catching up to do at the office and around the house.  It hasn't stopped me from reading though.

I am back on a mystery kick again!  After reading Tatjana Soli's The Forgetting Tree, I decided to "lighten" things up with a political thriller called Sweat by Mark Gilleo that took me from Washington D.C. to Saipan.  Over the weekend I squeezed in the second novel in Liz Strange's David Lloyd, P.I. series, A Fresh Set of Eyes.  I hadn't expected to finish it so fast, but once I started reading, it was hard to put down.  My lunch time book this week is Susan Elia MacNeal's Winston Churchill's Secretary, a cozy mystery set in England at the start of World War II.  I am already a big fan of the main character, Maggie Hope.  I haven't settled on a second book yet.  I am feeling like I might want to stick to one book at the moment.

What are you reading this week?

  1. You've been reading some heavy stuff if you consider a political thriller light. I'm reading The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters.

    1. Kathy - Ha! I tend to turn to crime fiction and thrillers when I'm looking for comfort--I think it's the fast paced intensity that usually sucks me in. :-)

    1. Harvee - I didn't like it as much as her first book, The Lotus Eaters, but The Forgetting Tree was good just the same.

    1. Chauntelle - I've been thinking of reviewing a couple of my daughter's current favorites. She's really into the lift the flap books right now. :-)

  4. Your light reads sound like mine, lol. I can't seem to get very far away from the heavy reading. It's my thang, I can't help it ;)

    I can't wait to hear what you think of Mr. Churchill's Secretary, I'm very curious about that one.

    1. Jennifer - Try as I might, I always come back to it. :-)

      I really enjoyed Mr. Churchill's Secretary. I'm reading the second book in the series now, Princess Elizabeth's Spy. I'm not quite as smitten with it as I was the first book, but so far it's good.
