It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Good morning and welcome to another episode of "I haven't finished any books this week." In this week's episode, I will recap the same three books I've been recapping for the past several weeks.

First up is Authority, by Jeff Vandermeer, a sci-fi thriller about a man in control of a secret he doesn't even know- Area X, a mysterious parcel of land which many enter but from which few return. Those that do, are changed.

Next The City of Mirrors, Justin Cronin's finale to his best-selling and much-lauded Passage Trilogy. I think I read maybe twenty pages this week. It's a lot of set-up for the big showdown, and I want to get to said showdown sooner rather than later.

Finally, The Man Without a Face, by Masha Gessen, which tells the story of the ascent of Vladimir Putin from KGB backwater functionary to Russia's dictator-in-chief and possible US kingmaker.

I blame the shorter ride from my new home to basically everywhere I go for the slowdown. Also I need to find my reading glasses.

What are you reading this week?
