It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Since I've been gone on vacation and without internet access, I managed to accomplish almost no reviews but I read up a storm! And this is more than one week's worth given how long I was off the grid. Also, make sure to read to the end of the appallingly long to be reviewed list to find the giveaway. This meme is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

Books I completed this week are:

The Patience Stone by Atiq Rahimi
Rainy Lake by Mary Rockcastle
Ill-Equipped for a Life of Sex by Jennifer Lehr
The Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi Durrow
Finding Marco by Kenneth Cancellara

Up From the Blue by Susan Henderson
Sweet Dates in Basra by Jessica Jiji
The Queen of Palmyra by Minrose Gwin
The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli
The Laments by George Hagen
Smart Girls Think Twice by Cathie Linz

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