It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's been a busy, topsy-turvy June but as we near July life is slowing down and I'm getting back to routine matters.

Over the last month I finished all the books I had going before and even started some new ones.
Mister Memory, by Marcus Sedgwick, is a novel set in late 19th century Paris, about a man named Marcel who arrives in Paris from the provinces with a prodigious talent- perfect recall. And it seems he's killed his wife, but things may not be as they seem. So far it's intriguing and light and fun, a novel about a mystery rather than a mystery novel.

My bedside read is Daša Drndić's Trieste, a novel about World War 2 set in northern Italy and environs.  I only just started it so I can't tell you too much right now.
I mentioned Code Girls on my Audiobook Roundup and I'm still loving this fascinating and detailed history of the women who helped win World War 2 (speaking of) by working as cryptanalysts for the US military.
