It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished The Long Room, by Francesca Kay, and I have some thoughts on it I'll share with you soon. It comes out in November.
Now I'm reading, and almost done with, Peter Swanson's Her Every Fear, a murder mystery thriller coming out in January. I'll tell you more when I'm finished but I think this is one that crime readers will want to check out as soon as it hits the shelves in the new year. He had a big book a few years ago with The Girl With A Clock For A Heart, which I haven't read but I'm thinking now I need to check that one out too. This one is genuinely creepy and frightening. The next galley on deck is Catriona Lally's Eggshells.

Today I'm starting Boualem Sansal's latest Harraga. He's an essential modern writer.  I'm reading it because the last book of his I read, The German Mujahid, was such a stunner. I'll have more to say once I actually start.
And I'm struggling through the final chapters of The Barbary Coast. I want to finish it but it's just going to take some time.

What are you reading this week? Let me know in the comments!
