It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I am finishing up 'The Circular Staircase' by Mary Roberts Rinehart. It is basically the same storyline as 'The Bat' but different characters. But there is something comfortable about Ms. Rinehart's books even so. She is one of my favorite mystery writers.
I also read 'Miss Pym in Dispose' by Josephine Tey this week. This was a little different from most mysteries. We didn't even get to the 'murder' until chapter 16! There were only 22 chapters! But it never lost my interest and the twist at the end made it all worthwhile. I highly recommend this book to mystery lovers!

For this week I am looking forward to 'Hangman's Holiday' by Dorothy L. Sayers. This book will go towards my Vintage Mystery Challenge! Also 'The Moorland Cottage' by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell working towards my Monthly Mix-up Mania challenge. And if I get lucky I can get to 'The Professor's Mystery' by Wells Hasting published in 1911!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! 

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling me how many you visited.

  1. My mom used to love Mary Roberts Rinehart. I read lots of them when I was younger. Good to know they are still being read!
