It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? This meme is now hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books.
Books completed last week:
My Fair Lazy: One Reality Television Addict's Attempt to Discover If Not Being A Dumb Ass Is the New Black; Or, A Culture-Up Manifesto by Jen Lancaster
Such a Pretty Fat: One Narcissist's Quest to Discover if Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big, or Why Pie is Not the Answer by Jen Lancaster
The Story of a Return (Persepolis, #2) by Marjane Satrapi
Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay
Okay, I have got to stop reading books by Jen Lancaster. I love them and am tempted to just charge through and read all 5 at once, but I know from personal experience that I will regret it, as they'll meld together into one big much in my head, and later when I try to recommend one to a friend, I'll struggle to remember which is which and figure out which ONE they would like. I try to not read a bunch right in a row anymore.

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

Up Next:
In my effort to feature books from independent publishers on my TBR list, here are some from Algonquin Books:
Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities by Amy Stewart
A Friend of the Family by Lauren Grodstein
Going Away Shoes by Jill McCorkle

I'm like that with certain authors too. If their books are too similar I try to put some time between reading books. :)

My What are you reading? is here.

Happy Monday. :)

I triple love Jen Lancaster, and am just sure that she and I are destined to meet on the streets of Chicago one day and become besties! I haven't read the new one yet, but I'm planning to get my hands on it as soon as I can.

I like your efforts to read books from independent publishers. You have some good sounding titles here! Have fun :)
