It's Monday -- What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. It's is a weekly event to celebrate what we are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

It's been a bleak reading week -- sometimes life just happens.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova (4 out of 5 stars -- one of my favorites to read this year)

The Invisible Mountain by Carolina de Robertis (lovely, but took more patience than I had available)

The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. by Sandra Gulland (one of my Women Unbound challenge selections).
The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. (Josephine Bonaparte, #1)
Summary from Goodreads:
Young Josephine Bonaparte shines at the center of a new, sweeping, romantic work of historical fiction by Sandra Gulland: detailed and exhaustively researched, compelling and powerful, The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. is the first in a trilogy of fictional novels tracing the actual rise of a young European noblewoman who would one day stand next to Napoleon. From the heartbreak of lost loves to the horror of revolution to the hope of new days, it's an intimate epic any romance lover will love.

Not sure how much reading I will get done in the next few weeks -- I will be gone for the Labor Day weekend, so no Monday post from me next week. But stay tuned -- I have a big reading announcement planned for Wednesday, September 8th! Get your Cowboy boots ready!

What are you reading?
