What I'm Reading Monday 9.28.15

I am still having a flare-up (ugh), BUT I did get a *little* more reading accomplished this week (Yay!)  I finished a review book, written by a young woman who was 14 at the time.  Review coming soon.  I also started several more books (huge shocker).

Tell me your thoughts on what I'm reading and what you're reading, too!
