"It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

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

This past week was packed with stuff to do but unfortunately reading wasn't really one of them.  That is okay though, I'm hoping to get back on track soon.  

What I Read Last Week
The Aftermath by Rhidian Brook (review here)
Studio Saint-Ex by Ania Szado (review coming soon)

What I'm Reading Now

I have been hearing so many great things about An Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra so I'm very excited to be reading it now.

What I Plan to Read Next
The Offering by Angela Hunt is about a woman whose husband dies while she is acting as a gestational carrier for another family.  A few years later she sees a photo of the child and realizes that they may have actually been her own biological child.  Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight is about a mother piecing together her daughter's last day through her technological history after she gets information that her daughter's death may not have been suicide after all.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Wow, what a diverse selection! This week I will mainly be reading MORE - I've totally fallen behind (getting engaged is bad for your reading, it seems!).

    1. I just joined an online book club that is reading it this month. It's been on my pile for almost two months now but I haven't had a chance to get to it.

    I also have enjoyed Alison Sweeney's work over the years, even when I despised the behavior of her character at times...lol

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
