It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished three books last week- the audiobook of  Made For Love, by Alissa Nutting, which I loved, my gym book The Possessed, by Elif Batuman, which was pretty enjoyable, and my bedside book, I'm Fine... And Other Lies, by comedian Whitney Cummings.

I put down the other books and moved on to Ripley Under Water, by Patricia Highsmith; she is always a treat and I'm really enjoying the follow-up to the fun Ripley Under Ground. You can never have too much Tom Ripley in your life, unless you're in his crosshairs.
Bedside I've got Moura: The Dangerous Life of the Baroness Budberg, by Nina Berberova, the biography of an extraordinary woman who survived the tumultuous early Soviet years and had a string of famous lovers and husbands along the way. It's interesting and the writing is fantastic. I've long been a fan of Berberova's fiction.
Then at the gym I'm reading Jane Austen at Home, a biography by Lucy Worsley. I'm only in the first chapter but it's delightful and fascinating so far. 2017 is the year for Jane Austen nonfiction and I have a feeling this is another winner.

What are you reading this week?
