It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (14)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.

I managed to finish two (2!) books last week - granted, one of them was very short, but still. I've been reading more than usual the past couple of weeks, which is great. I love seeing my list of TBR books get shorter (but I'm sure it won't be long before it's grown again!).

The Hot Rock by Donald E. Westlake. This was a fun book about a gang of very unlucky professional thieves. I also read a Nancy Drew novel, The Mystery of the 99 Steps by Carolyn Keene. I never noticed this when I read these books as a teenager, but they are certainly full of convenient coincidences! Still, it's always nice to spend time with Nancy and her friends.

I'm going to start Svart arv (Summer Lightning) by Tamara McKinley later today. I was hoping Bad Debts by Peter Temple would show up, but no such luck. Those are the two I have left for the Aussie Author Challenge, and I would like to finish them soon.

No idea. I have heaps of books I want to read, but sometimes nothing really stands out. We'll see how I feel when I've finished my current read.

What are you reading this week?

Wish my TBR pile would get smaller, but every time I read a couple books I buy four more. Hope you have a great reading week and continue to whittle away at your pile.

Good luck on finding something good in you TBR stack. I know how it is when there are so many that it is hard to choose. My Monday Report is here. Happy reading!

The Hot Rock sounds interesting and fun! Enjoy your week of good reads!
