It's Monday. What Are You Reading? #7
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey and is a great way for others to find out what you are planning to read this week and, best of all, see what others are reading
Last week I finished
Review is here.
This week I'm reading
Yeah this looks like chick lit, I know- why am I reading it? Here we have a son (and heir to the manor) having a fling with a maid, with tragic consequences. The lord of the manor may be having an affair, and the lady is feeling constrained by the rules she must follow.
This is the third country house book I've read in the last few weeks, but already this is the most serious, with very precise period detail and a more realistic tone. This isn't so much a mystery as a look at how these houses really worked and a family that has plenty of fractures and issues to deal with.
I'm also reading
and have been for several weeks. It's a re- read and I read a chapter or two here and there, in between the other stuff I've got. So it's slow going but I will have a review up for it at some point.
What are you reading?
