It's Monday, what are you reading? - August 31, 2009



It's Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog; participants discuss what they read the previous week and what they plan to read in the coming week.

What I Read Last Week:
He Who Sings Last by Lisa Laird DiRosso. DiRosso's debut book about a cold case murder, a washed up rock star and an obsessed fan. Review coming!

What My Nose is Buried in This Week:
Lady Anne and the Howl in the Dark by Donna Lea Simpson. This book is a gothic historical mystery fiction romance with touches of the paranormal (yes, really) and although I am but 40 pages in, I'm hooked.

So . . . what are you reading today?

I've read and reviewed He Who Sings Last - I will be interested to see what you think. The Lady anne and the Howl in the Dark sounds fun.. and how many genres can the author fit in one book?! :D Hope you enjoy reading it!

I'm in between books and to tell you the truth whenever I'm in between books I feel sort of lost. Like I'm missing my map or something.

Lori,
These sound like delightful reads and will most likely be added to my ever growing TBR list. My Monday list is here: http://rundpinne.blogspot.com/2009/08/what-are-you-reading-monday_31.html

Juju, I'm with you. I MUST have a book with me at all times, or something I am reading or I feel lost.

Mary and Sheila - I cannot stress enough how much I am enjoying Lady Anne so far. I didn't want to put it down this morning or during my lunch hour, which is always a sure sign of a great book.

Book Chick - Lady Anne definitely covers the genres! At least in my opinion. I love a good mystery with touches of the paranormal so I'm in literary heaven right now.
