It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I'm reading a whole bunch of books this week.

James Hamilton-Paterson's Cooking with Fernet Branca is this month's Europa Editions Challenge book. It's a comic romp about mismatched neighbors in Tuscany- a clueless Englishman and a sharp-tongued woman from a fictional Eastern bloc country- and the shenanigans they get up to. It's fun.

Melissa Pritchard's collection of bizarre short stories The Odditorium is an Early Reviewers book from I'm reading a story a day every day I'm not working, so that means I'm due to read one today.

I'm also reading one short essay a day from Alan Epstein's amusing As the Romans Do. These are stories about his family's time spent living there.

I started Eduardo Sacheri's compelling The Secret in their Eyes the other day. It's a mystery about a brutal rape and murder in Argentina and I'm loving it.

I'm also slowly digging through Mockingjay to finally finish up The Hunger Games series and looking to pull one more 2012 galley off of my TBR pile. I don't know which one it will be!

I like your choices for this week, and hope that you enjoy them. I will be finishing up The Gods of Gotham and starting The Dispatcher. Hopefully it will be a good reading week for me too!

You do have a lot of books going. As the Romans Do really intrigues me.
