Its Monday, What are you reading this week?

Over on J. Kayes Book Blog there is a meme on Mondays to say what you are reading. I am going to try as far as possible to keep up with this, which will help me see how far I am with my challenge. I think I have done quite well this weekend as I have managed to finish 3 books already! I know that realistically I wont be able to keep up this pace once I am back to work, so I think it will be nice to be a bit ahead!
So far I have read:
1. The Covenant of Genesis by Andy Mc Dermott. This is the second book of his that I have read and I really love them. If you enjoyed the Da Vinci Code or Indiana Jones, then this is a good one for you.
2. The Parting by Beverly Lewis. This was a Christmas gift from my sister and I had never read any books by this author. It was a little slow paced for me, but I did enjoy the story, and will be reading the rest of the series next. It is set in Amish Country, which is something that has always fascinated me.
3. A thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I really enjoyed The Kite Runner and bought this book for my bookclub last year. I have had to wait a whole year to read it, and can honestly say that it was worth the wait! I love the way he makes you feel as if you are actually there in the story, the author has an amazing ability to create atmosphere. Definitely a keeper!

For the rest of the week I am planning on reading:
The Forbidden by Beverly Lewis, The Longing by Beverly Lewis and This Year it will be different by Maeve Binchy.
