It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished Noontide Toll a while ago, DNF'd The Crimes of Paris, and have been through some books since.

I'm enjoying His Bloody Project, by Graeme Macrae Burnett, a Booker Prize-nominated crime novel set in Scotland. It's a straightforward but chilling tale of a brutal triple murder and the banality of evil. I expect to finish this week.

I have to pick out a new nonfiction title for my bedside reading as I'm done reading The Brothers, by Masha Gessen, her take on the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013. I'm having a lot of thoughts about this book and it will take me a while to process them into something I can put on my blog. Thought-provoking for sure. It also features the banality of evil as its theme.

And I think I'm going to start the last Patrick Melrose novel in the four-volume paperback collection I'm reading from, Mother's Milk. I finished The Orphan Master's Son over Thanksgiving weekend and have been busy with sewing and quilt guild activities this past week.

What are you reading this week?
