It's Monday! What are you reading?

What are you reading on Monday? is a weekly meme hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog. Join in the weekly fun by clicking here.

This week I have an ARC from Bloomsbury Publishers. The Aviary Gate by Katie Hickman is an intriguing historical fiction novel that takes the reader to Constantinople in 1599. An English ambassador thinks his fiance' has been lost in a shipwreck, but clues begin to emerge that lead him to believe she may have survived and be hidden inside the Sultan's harem. It is a tale of secrets, love, and murder in the Ottoman palace.

Last week, I read and reviewed Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler. My review is posted below.
