It's Monday, what are you reading?

And so, Monday rolls around again. I have not read nearly as much as I wanted to this week and I am not really sure why. It could have been too much time playing with my new kitten or a lot of time doing my Christmas Journal but anyway I haven't had much time to read.
I finished Lethal Legacy by Linda Fairstein and thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love her way of writing, love how the characters interact with each other, you feel that they are such good friends and you are included in their circle. I cant wait for another one of hers to come out. And this one was set in the New York Public Library and told you a lot about old books so really a double bonus! One of my favourite authors and one fo my favourite topics.
I also read a Silhouette book, called the Star Spangled Bride, which I havent done for years; but I picked it up at the fleamarket and read it within 2 hours! Thinking of getting a few more since it was actually quite nice to read something light and undemanding for a change. It will also beef up my 100 book count, lol.
I am halfway through Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan and hope to finish The Other Family by Joanna Trollope tonight. So, I guess that I have done a fair bit of reading, just not finished that many  books!
My to be read list is quite extensive; I think it has about 9 books on it including Cross Country by James Patterson, The Last Pope by Luis Miguel Roca, and Double Crown by Marie Heese, so I guess I will have quite a busy week!

I have to pick two books for our book club to read and I'm going to check out several of the ones you mentioned. Thanks for the suggestions! It's so hard to find that 'perfect book'!
