What are you reading on Mondays? - September 21

I've been absent the last couple of weeks, trying hard to finish most of the challenges I'm in, although I'm determined not to sign up for so many in the future. I've managed to finish up 4 challenges since my last Monday post, woohoo!

I'm also behind in my reviews -- I was doing well at writing them as soon as I finished a book, but the thought of the last couple felt too much like an English assignment.

Recent completions:

A Bend in the River by V.S. Naipaul -- review

The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis

Morality Play by Barry Unsworth -- review

Royal Charles: Charles II and the Restoration by Antonia Fraser -- review

The Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- review

What Makes Us Catholic: Eight Gifts for Life by Thomas Groome

How was The Four Loves by CS Lewis? I really enjoy his writing.

I'm curious about The Four Loves, as well.

Have a good week!
