It's Monday What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, where we share what we are reading and see what others are reading as well.
Read Last Week:
I got derailed from my plan last week! Our huge book order for work came in, about 8 of my own library holds came in, and my Amazon pre-orders came in - Doctor Sleep, Dream Thieves, and Winds of Salem. I was overwhelmed by the amount of books at my disposal and couldn't make a choice. I ended up reading:
Deep and Dark and Dangerous by Mary Downing Hahn: Our kids at work love scary books and Mary Downing Hahn. We just got this in, and I read it to scope out the creep factor. I will be showing this book to the kids who ask me for "the scariest book in the library".
Sold Down the River by Barbara Hambly: I love the Benjamin January series. I have read it many times. So powerful and I learned so much about this horrific time period in New Orleans. This series is a fiction story about a freeman named Benjamin January, who is a doctor and a musician.
Reading This Week:
I narrowed down the choices by what I absolutely had to read first. This was not easy, but I did it.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt: Another favorite book of mine - so much so that I picked it for my book club to read. We meet on Thursday.
The Heavens Rise by Christopher Rice: I am reading this via NetGalley. It archives the 15th of October, so I felt I should get to this way before then.
