It's Monday What are You Reading?


It is Monday indeed, I've just finished reading Finding Nouf
I enjoyed this book, maybe not so much for the mystery, but for all the stuff I learned about Muslim women.  The story takes place in Saudi, in the midst of a wealthy family.  A young woman is gone missing, and later found dead.  The informal investigation that ensues is the storyline, but, in the process we are plunged into a world that is certainly unknown to me. I had to laugh a bit, since my one sister is reading a series set in Amish country, and I'm in Saudi.  Interesting and informative for certain.  I like a murder mystery that teaches me something.  Not a very long read, and certainly entertaining, if murder can be entertaining. 

Up Next:  The First Grave on the Right,  Darynda Jones.


Nothing in my mailbox this week.

Happy Reading. It's Monday... is hosted by Sheila from Book Journey

I read another book by that author that I found fascinating. I bet this one is too.

I'll have to check these out. The title of First Grave on the Right has me curious.

This is a gap in my reading as I've not read any books set in Saudi! This one sounds as though it would be a good one to start with.

It's Tuesday now, and I'm still reading what I was reading Monday. Which is a non-fiction book called A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare: 1599 -- by James Shapiro and I am finding it increasingly fascinating.
