It's Monday - what are you reading?

This is part of a Meme hosted by BOOK JOURNEY

Last week I reviewed

The last book I finished was

SINFUL WOMAN (1947) by James M. Cain - one of my favourite authors ever 

(highly recommendable if you have a thing going on for 1940's pulp fiction and fictional Hollywood gossip)

I am reading...

... for my book-club:

EMMA (1814) by Jane Austen

 - which I enjoy very, very much.. - as much that I wish we would read faster in the "club".. 

...for myself

THE NIGHT CIRCUS (2011) by Erin Morgenstern

borrowed from the library.. It's good so far..

So - what are you reading? Do you recommend it? 

Hope you have a wonderful week filled with great books!

Thank you very much for reading!



  1. Ooh, love the covers, especially the one on Sinful Woman. Enjoy your books...and here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

    1. Hey! Love the covers, too. For Sinful Woman I found several and I am planning on post them all in my review - which will be most likely post at my film blog..

  2. I just reviewed the film "The Postman Always Rings Twice." I recall that the film was based on the James M. Cain novel of the same name. It's a fantastic story, so I'm quite sure "Sinful Woman" is equally as wonderful. Unfortunately, my library doesn't have that title in its system.

    I finished my James Cagney autobiography. I loved it! He was an amazing (yet humble) man.

    Still reading "Positive Words, Powerful Results," but when I was in the library on Friday, I was browsing the "Non-Fiction New Release" table. Came away with "Gilded Lives, Fatal Voyage," about the Titanic's first-class passengers and their world. Also got "The Royal Stuarts"...a history of the family that shaped Britain. Haven't started either of them yet, but they look interesting.

    While I enjoy historical fiction, I often tend to gravitate to historical non-fiction as well. I am definitely in love with the past.

    Have a great day, Irene!

    1. Hi, Patti - yes, it's based on a novel by the same name by James M. Cain.. SINFUL WOMAN is not as good - but quite a nice read..

      So great that you love the Cagney autobiography! He was soo marvellous!

      GILDE LIVEY, FATAL VOYAGE sounds intriguing! Will add that to my wishlist.. THE ROYAL STUARTS sounds also great! Hope you'll enjoy your reads! I also love historical non-fiction..

      A great day to you too, my friend!
