It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

School is almost finished, my reports are done, my marking is finished, commencement is tomorrow night, and I feel like a bird that has been released from its cage.  I almost don't know what to do with myself as it's been so long since I haven't felt that stress on my shoulders to do my job.  I'll get over it pretty soon, but right now I'm indulging in some reading that I haven't allowed myself to do in a while.  I returned some library books today, only intending to drop off the books without looking around.  Like that was going to happen!!  At least I only walked out with four books instead of the ten I wanted.  I started reading Wondrous Strange in the car on my way home.  And before anybody gets upset about my driving habits, I got stuck in construction and had to sit there for twenty minutes while they unloaded all these big concrete sewage blocks and the traffic was blocked; I did NOT drive while reading (I'm just grateful I had something in my car to do while I waited.)  The problem is now I've abandoned the other books I've been reading in favour of this one which is almost finished.  (Sigh!)

This wonderful meme, hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books, usually helps me to keep focused on what I read, on what I am reading, and on what I need to read in the upcoming week.

What I Finished Last Week:

Under the Dragon's Tail by Maureen Jennings - In celebration of Canada Week, an English author who now calls Canada home, this is book 2 of an historical mystery series set in late 19th century Toronto. 

Evermore by Alyson Noel - Another one of those books I got at the library and read it immediately.  An interesting read, but not quite what I expected.

Folly by Marthe Jocelyn - Another Canadian author, Folly was another of those books that was interesting, but not quite what I expected.

What I am Currently Reading:

Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston - Another Canadian author.

The Chamber of Shadows by Justin Richards

Demon Princess: Reign Check by Michelle Rowan - Another Canadian author.

What I Intend to Read:

Grace Under Pressure by July Hyzy
