This is a weekly to celebrate what we are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week. Feel free to join in this weekly event if you'd like.

Hosted by J. Kaye

I had a slow reading week but I did manage to finish the following books:

Night of Flames by Douglas W. Jacobson. This is a novel focusing on the lives of common people in Poland during World War II; what occurred in the lives of the Jews when Germany conquered Poland and the strength of individuals to resist the extinction plans of Hitler.

Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran. The story of Nephertari, niece of Nefertiti, as she matured from a child to Queen of Egypt, wife of Ramseses II.

This week I am reading:

The Apple by Penelope Holt

The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million by Daniel Mendelsohn

American Eve, Evelyn Nesbit: The Birth of the It Girl and The Crime of the Century by Paula Uruburu

The Pillow Book by Sei Shonagon

Have a great reading week everyone!
