It's Monday, what are you reading? - September 14, 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:

Lady Anne and the Howl in the Dark by Donna Lea Simpson.  My review of this fantastic gothic romance historical mystery paranormal fiction novel is here

The Smart One and the Pretty One by Claire LaZebnik is a true chick-lit romp about two sisters, their relationship with their parents, with men and with each other.  Review to follow! 

What My Nose is Buried in This Week:

Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattilo.   An Austen-esque chick-lit book about how a college professor has a score to settle with Jane Austen, after believing in happy endings from Austen's books, all while on the search for some long-lost letters Austen wrote.

And Two Shall Become One by Sharon Lathan.  What happens to our beloved Lizzy and Darcy from Pride and Prejudice after the wedding - - in the most romantic (and steamy!) way.  And as a sidenote, and a bit of bragging, I won a signed copy of the second book in this series, Loving Mr. Darcy, from Sharon Lathan herself a week or so ago!

Hmmm . . . yes, there is definitely a theme going on with my reading.  It looks to be a very Austen-esque week for me.

So . . . what are you reading today?
