It’s Monday! What are you reading?

Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I haven’t been able to settle into many books this week.  I’ve read a few partial books but they aren’t holding my interest.

The Oracle of Stamboul by Michael David Lukas

Eleonora is born in Romania in 1877.  It is clear that she is a gifted child.  When she is eight she goes with her father to Stamboul on a business trip.  Her world expands to include a potential spy, a possible revolutionary, and the Sultan.

This was an interesting book.  It isn’t like anything I’ve read before.  It combines historical fiction with a bit of magical realism.


  1. Sounds good :) Never heard of it but it sounds cool!!

  2. really like the cover and found it very nice that you linked it to amazon so I could add it to my wishlist more easily

  3. I’m still on vacation but I’ve caught a cold. I’ve been too sick to get much reading done. Please come see what I’m reading.

  4. My reading was down this week too. Holidays tend to do that.

    Have a great week!
