It's Monday, What are you reading?

I still need to write reviews for books I finished the week prior to this:
Wicked Games by Jill Myles
Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo by Obert Skye

This week I finished:
My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler
Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
Zane's Tale:  A Succubus Diary Short by Jill Myles

The books I am still working on are:
Throwaway by Heather Huffman
The Hollows Insider: New fiction, facts, maps, murders, and more in the world of Rachel Morgan by Kim Harrison
Home: A Memoir of My Early Years by Julie Andrews
The Shadow of Your Smile by Susan May Warren

Last week was just so busy that I didn't get reviews posted for the books from the week before and even missed my first Saturday Snapshot since I started participating.  I'm hoping to get caught up this week!  I was really excited when Chelsea Handler's book finally arrived.  I requested it on Paperbackswap almost a month ago and the sender marked it as shipped.  I got three emails from Paperbackswap asking if it had arrived before it did.  It came two days before the final estimated arrival date and I discovered the sender hadn't bother to send it until well past the ship date.  I know it arrived before the action date, but part of me got really annoyed.  If it is the post office who delays shipping and arrival it is one thing, that happens and we all understand it, but to lie about sending it just seems so dishonest to me.  Oh well, it's here, I read it in a little over a day and I loved it just like the other two I read. 

This week I sent out my Secret Santa package as part of the The Broke and Bookish Secret Santa.  This is the second year, but my first participating.  Seems like a lot of fun.  I'll be sure to post what I get when my present arrives!
