It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This meme is now hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Books completed last week:
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
Blood Done Sign My Name: A True Story by Timothy B. Tyson
The Subversive Copy Editor: Advice from Chicago (or, How to Negotiate Good Relationships with Your Writers, Your Colleagues, and Yourself) by Carol Fisher Saller
Getting the Love You Want : A Guide for Couples by Harville Hendrix

Books I am giving up on:
And Ladies of the Club by Helen Hooven Santmyer
I mused about whether or not to give up on this book last week and even though I certainly wasn't hating it, someone pointed out how sad it was to read a lame book for another 1000 pages and also think of all the good and fun books I could read during that time instead. So I'm considering it just tabled. It's possible I will pick it up again, down the road.

Up next:
Death in the City of Light: The Serial Killer of Nazi-Occupied Paris by David King
The Crofter and the Laird: Life on an Hebridean Island by John McPhee
Say Her Name by Francisco Goldman

Over 1000 pages, never. My limit is 600 and if it feels like torture, DNF it is. To many amazing books out there some are just not for us.
