It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I've been really bad about blogging this year (or maybe I should say I've been really good at not blogging). Too many "real-life" things going on, these last couple of months. I have been reading, but haven't had much time for writing about it. (Things might be settling down now — fingers crossed!)

In February I finished a couple of books, one new work...

Murder Theory, by Andrew Mayne
(Book #3 in Mayne's The Naturalist series)

and one classic:

O Pioneers!, by Willa Cather
(The first book in her Great Plains Trilogy)

Didn't enjoy Murder Theory as much as I was expecting to, probably because I haven't read the earlier books in the series. But it wasn't terrible. On the other hand, its cover gets my vote as one of the worst I've ever seen.

Fortunately, O Pioneers! turned out to be a glorious read — so all was not lost in February's bookish world.

Right now I've got two books going — The Last Romantics, by Tara Conklin, and The Stranger Diaries, by Elly Griffiths.

Both are ARCs that I really should have finished last month, but you know how that goes.

Happy reading, everyone! And have a lovely week.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. If you want to let the world know what you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs.

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
