It's Monday! What Are You Reading This Week?

This meme hosted is by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog. I know, I know. I promised to have some movement under the "bookmarks are still living in" section and I basically lied. The excuse of the week is that I was on vacation and have now come home to a bunch of review books that have a firm deadline in the middle of next month. And since I want to be invited to be on the panel again next year, I am focused mostly on them. Also, this is more than one week's compilation as I didn't play along while on vacation. Next week will be back to one week at a time.

Lamentations of the Father by Ian Frazier
Across the Pond by Storyheart

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
