It's Monday! (8/3/15)

It's Monday! is sponsored by Sheila at Book Journey.
Last week I finished Go Set a Watchman. It was kind of indescribable. I have very mixed feelings about it, none of them entirely positive. I'll be writing a review on this one once I muddle through my various thoughts.
Last week I just kept starting books from my August pile. I began The Best American Poetry 2011, which so far is a huge disappointment. I chose it for the editor (the series has a different guest editor each year), Kevin Young, as I've enjoyed another book of poems edited by him very much. But so far, not impressed.
And I also began Sister Mother Husband Dog by Delia Ephron. I'm not far enough into it to have an opinion yet.
And I continue with Mansfield Park. I really need to remedy my audio issues, because I'm not getting anywhere with the book, and the plot is starting to pick up.

What's next? I'm unsure. Probably The River of Doubt about Teddy Roosevelt's voyage up the Amazon, because I'm up for a little adventure this summer. And I loved Candice Millard's book about President Garfield.
What's on your book list these days?
