It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I didn't get around to this last week, so I've got a couple of weeks to share!  First, I finished The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.  Both were amazing young adult fiction, and easily suitable for any thinking adult as well.  The link to my review is here.


Then I read The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf.  Not a bad first novel.  Here's the review for that one...The Weight of Silence

Right now I am reading Anatomy of Deception by Lawrence Goldstone.  It's a historical mystery set in the late 1800s in Philadelphia among a group of doctors studying the newly "acceptable" science of forensics.  Pretty good so far, but it's going to take me the rest of the week, I'm sure.  However, spring break starts Thursday afternoon!  A while week to rest and read.  I've started getting the books I ordered from the The Orange Prize, so those are on tap.  So far I have This is How by M.J Hyland, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, and The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver.

Hope everyone has a delightful reading week!
