It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished Fates & Furies, which I may or may not review here. I can't decide. Part of the problem is I can't decide if I liked it or not.
Last week I started reading The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared, by Jonas Jonasson, but DNF'd it by Saturday. It just wasn't holding my attention.  So yesterday I started Amara Lahous's Dispute Over a Very Italian Piglet. Lakhous is one of my favorite light-crime/social-commentary writers and I know he's got a new one soon so I need to play catch-up.
Then after Wednesday I have to start Ripley Under Ground, by Patricia Highsmith, for my crime novel reading group.
And I'm still reading and enjoying Maxim D. Shrayer's memoir Leaving Russia: A Jewish Story. I have probably 2-3 weeks or so to go on that book at the rate I'm reading it.

What are you reading this week?
