It's Monday! What am I reading?

It feels like it's been forever since I participated in this fun event, hosted by Sheila (thank you ever so much!) at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

So let's get started.  First: I have a book giveaway going for The Devil's Star by Jo Nesbo.  Click here if you're interested. 

This past week I finished the following:

Don't Look Back, by Karin Fossum (not reviewed yet)
Lost City Radio, by Daniel Alarcon (also not reviewed)
Fever Dream, by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (the newest Agent Pendergast novel for those of you who follow the series)
Blackout, by Connie Willis 
The Murder Farm, by Andrea Schenkel

I'm currently reading The Museum of Innocence, by Orhan Pamuk.

For this week:
Tomorrow I should be receiving my pre-ordered copy of Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, by Stieg Larsson so I'll definitely read that, plus I'm planning to read The Slap, by Christos Tsiolkas.  After that, who knows?

In the words of Simon and Garfunkel:
Gee but it's great to be back home, home is where I want to be. I've been on the road so long my friend...
Happy reading.

  2. Sounds like you had a great week of reading! I'm really looking forward to Fever Dream - I have such a huge crush on Agent Pendergast! Hope you enjoy all your reading this week.

  3. I am very intrigued by The Museum of Innocence. it's one of those books I'd pick up for the title alone.

  4. Oh, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest! I'm actually trying to hold off on this one until the movie comes out, I just hate when movies ruin books and it's easier for me that way.

    Have a fantastic reading week and if you get a chance, stop by: Monday Reading's at There's A Book

  6. The Slap looks interesting. That happened to my step dad and his daughter many moons ago. Thankfully, it wasn't a slap, but some harsh words. Still, it took years to repair the friendship.

  7. Sometimes it's good not to know what you are reading next.. I haven't read any of Stieg Larsson's books yet. I really am missing something.

  8. Gwen... I've heard this same scenario many times and it was never pretty.

    Aths: Stieg Larsson is fun -- not great literature, but really fun.

  9. I'm so jealous that you've read Fever Dream already. I hope it was good and its worth the wait!

Say what you will, but at least try to be nice about it.
