It's Monday! What Are You Reading? November 14th, 2016

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is one of the longest lasting book-memes I know of. I've been a participant since the days it was hosted over at J Kaye's Book Blog, and then on Book Journey. Now It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted at Book Date.

The idea of It's Monday! What Are You Reading is to share the books you read last week and also what you are currently reading. I've discovered the hard way that it's a dangerous meme for your TBR piles as frequently I end up adding books to my wishlist thanks to the intriguing descriptions and reviews that others share.

Over the last couple of weeks I haven't managed to finish reading any books, thus why I haven't posted for a couple. On the other hand, I haven't finished anything this week either. But I did get a fair bit read on the book I'm currently working on.

I'm currently reading:
Drums of Autumn - Diana GabaldonDrums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon.
The product description:
It began in Scotland, at an ancient stone circle.  There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past--or the grave.  Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once buy twice.  Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became legend--a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child.  Her second journey, two decades later, brought them together again in frontier America.  But Claire had left someone behind in the twentieth century.  Their daughter Brianna...

Now, Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the stone circle and a terrifying leap into the unknown.  In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she is risking her own future to try to change history...and to save their lives.  But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past...or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong...
I'm just over five hundred pages in now, and absolutely loving the read. However, I have to admit that I don't know if I'm going to get this one completed before next week. If I do though, I'm thinking that the next book I'm planning to read will be The Fiery Cross. That's as far as I got in reading my way through the series last time, even thought I've gotten copies of all the rest as they came out. But not any of the Lord John books. Those ones I just haven't been able to get into.
