It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Last week I finished two short novels, Never Mind, by Edward St. Aubyn, and Life Form, by Amelie Nothomb. I loved them both in different ways. Never Mind is the first of the Patrick Melrose series; I definitely want to finish reading all the books now. Life Form was a strange and wonderful book about authors, writing and creating fiction. I'll write reviews this week.

Now I've got two new books going. Happy Ending by Francesca Duranti is about a weekend gathering of family at an Italian estate. I could see it as a very arty movie. More Beer, by Jakob Arjouni, is the second Kemal Kayankaya series crime novel, about environmental activists and the murder of the owner of a chemical plant. It's entertaining and enjoyable.

What are you reading? Stop by for more.

The title of More Beer intrigues me.

I am reading The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman. I like it but man I can't read it tired!

Sound interesting!

I'm still reading Beloved Enemy by Ellen Jones, though I made a good dent in it today (well, compared to the dents I've been making- it is a long one.)
