What are you reading on Mondays?
What are you reading on Mondays? is a weekly meme hosted by J. Kaye's book blog. You can find her here to see what she and others have completed last week and plan to read for this week.
Last week, I completed the delightful book, The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James and have posted my thoughts. This will fulfill one of the six required books/movies for the Everything Austen Challenge.
New for this week is the first book in a fantastic historical fiction trilogy by Sharon Kay Penman: Here Be Dragons. The blurb on the back cover says, "...princesses held captive in stone towers, bloody wars, princes scheming to dethrone their own brothers, castles under seige, maidens in distress, rampant infidelity, lusting, mead guzzling, wine drinking, and love affairs that topple kingdoms...how did England survive the thirteenth century?" This sounds terrific to me and I can't wait to get started.
I will also be completing The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. I started it this weekend and I love it. I am still reading The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly and hope to post my thoughts on this novel soon.
Have a great reading week!
