It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Well it's Monday again. I finished Ellen Litman's wonderful novel Mannequin Girl this week, about a young girl growing up under the Soviet regime who has scoliosis and goes to a special school. It's really good. I just love Litman's work and would really encourage you to read her.

I haven't started anything new yet but I'm thinking of pulling a Europa out of my pile, maybe The Cemetery of Swallows, by Mallock, a crime novel set in the Dominican Republic and France, and maybe reading Molly Fox's Birthday by the wonderful Deirdre Madden. I decided to put Rites of Passage aside for the time being, so I have to choose another Booker book. I'll let you know when I decide!

What are you reading? See more at and have a great week!

I love that I see so many "new to me" books when I visit your site! :) I'm reading The Martian by Weir and The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan, as well as several others that I've been slowly chipping away at. Enjoy your reading this week!

I like the Dominican Republic mystery.

I've just started A Song of Ice and Fire and am enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would.
