It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Saturday was Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon and I had fully prepared to have this massive post today highlighting all the fantastic books I read during that period.  Then the day actually came and well, all the plans flew right out the window.  It's okay though, I did get opportunities to come online, see how others were doing, and check out a whole bunch of tweets making it feel like I was right there in the trenches with everyone else.  And I did manage to get one book finished!

What I Read Last Week
The Juggler's Children by Carolyn Abraham is the writer's story of using DNA tests to find out the truth behind her family's legends and stories and find out where they really come from.  Friends & Foes by ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria  Christopher Murray is the second book in the series where Billingsley's Rachel Adams and Murray's Lady Jasmine meet up and cause trouble.  Struggles of a Dreamer by Yahaya Baruwa is an inspirational novel about choosing between dreams and traditions.  In Calamity's Wake by Natalee Caple is a fictionalized version of Calamity Jane's life.

What I'm Reading Now
The Sailmaker's Daughter by Stephanie Johnson

What I Plan to Read Next
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

    Have you noticed how many books there are with "The [profession]'s daughter/wife/son"? Hope The Sailmaker's Daughter is good.
