It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

 
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.

Wow, it's actually May! No more snow! Although it's still cold here at night (it almost reached freezing last night), we are having lovely weather with sunshine and no wind. In less than a month we will start seeing the midnight sun (provided it's not hiding behind clouds like most of last year). I have a dentist appointment at noon that I'm not exactly looking forward to (dentists are scary!). It's a 40-minute drive to the dentist's office, so I'll just finish this post and then I have to get going. Wish me luck! 

FINISHED LAST WEEK
Over Easter I read Tripwire by Lee Child, the third installment in the Jack Reacher series. I think Reacher is on the fast track to making my list of fictional crushes.

I also read and reviewed The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale by Christine Bell, which I absolutely adored. It's a steampunk/time-travel romance novella with a spunky main character and lots of humour. Check it out if you're in need of a mood boost!
CURRENTLY READING
I picked up Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz, the second book about wacky PI Isabel Spellman and her equally wacky family. It's such a fun series written in a very different format than most mysteries. Check it out if you are a fan of Stephanie Plum and the likes (you can find my review of The Spellman Files here).

WHAT'S NEXT
One of my best friends will be visiting from Wednesday till Sunday, so I don't expect to be getting much reading done this week. I will try to finish Curse of the Spellmans before she arrives, and then I may or may not start something else while she's here. I imagine we will spend the time driving around town and watching movies at night instead of reading. :)

What are your reading plans for the week?
