It’s Monday What Are You Reading? is a weekly reading roundup is hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.
This is technically a weekly meme but I don’t read fast enough to make that worthwhile so I post it every two or three weeks.

This Dark Road to Mercy was my first book by Wiley Cash and I loved it. I’ve had this one on my shelf for several months and it was time to read it. It was incredibly sad but so beautifully written.
I’ve never read anything by Hemingway before. After reading this I’m not going to be in any hurry to read any of his other books.
This is final book in a trilogy of novellas. It is fascinating and unique science fiction featuring a young Himba girl from what is now Namibia who travels across the galaxy to attend a University. Along the way her life is changed in ways no one could imagine.

I have read and loved Robert K. Massie’s books about Peter the Great and also Nicholas and Alexandra. I bought this biography of Catherine the Great years ago. I’m looking forward to actually reading it.

Ever since they’ve been releasing these illustrated editions I’ve made a tradition of reading the new one at the beginning of the year. I’m taking my time with this one.

Scientology and it’s adherents have always fascinated me. This was an interesting look into the history of the church and it’s current leaders.

I’ve been a fan of this series from Louise Penny since the first book. It’s series I stick to listening to rather than reading.
