It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished several books this week- The End of Eddy, by Edouard Louis, La femme aux pieds nus, by Scholastique Mukasonga, and The Making of Jane Austen, by Devoney Looser.

Which means I get to start some new ones.

I started reading A Doll's Alphabet, an upcoming book of short stories by Camilla Grudova; it comes out in October and would be great for fans of Angela Carter, Margaret Atwood and the like. 

Still working my way through Smoke, by Dan Vyleta; I put it down while I was reading The End of Eddy but I'd like to finish it this week. Hopefully I can!

On the nightstand now is Good Booty: Love and Sex, Black and White, Body and Soul in American Music. So far so good.

As far as what's next for me, I'm picking from my list of summer reads and starting with Claire Messud's The Burning Girl. I'm on set today and will probably have some time to read. I'll keep you posted. In the mean time have a great Fourth of July tomorrow and let me know in the comments what you're reading.
