It's Monday! What are you Reading? #8

This is a meme hosted by Book Journey, but I found it here on Book-a-holic.  

Last week just flew by for me and honestly, I didn't get much reading done!  I finished Onyx and I have started 2 books and if I am lucky I will get them both finished this week.  

Currently Reading

 Former beauty queen and gorgeous blonde Mandy and her life-battered friend, Diane, want nothing more than to reach the heights of success in show business. Their journey to self-discovery and stardom during the turbulent 1960s and 1970s takes them from New York City to Las Vegas and Hollywood. During an era when unrest and free love take precedence, Mandy's small town upbringing has left her inexperienced, and she soon discovers that being a winner is not all it's cracked up to be.
Once a movie starlet, nothing has gone right for forty-year-old Diane in years. A graduate of the School of Hard Knocks, her dreams have all but vanished as she looks for love in all the wrong places. Mandy is determined to become a star and begins auditioning for roles. She meets Diane, and together they soon realize that the path to stardom is lined with unscrupulous agents who want to take advantage of their beauty and na vet.
As these two blondes continue their journey to discovering who they really are deep inside, only time will tell which one will persevere through the challenges and realize that if she can survive her past, she can make it anywhere.

Following the sudden disappearance of treasure hunter Ben Sanders in Mexico, beautiful archaeologist Suzy da Silva is snatched from the cloistered environs of Oxford University and thrust into a deadly maelstrom of intrigue and discovery. 
Joining forces with astrophysicist Tom Brooking she crosses four continents, to unlock the dark secrets of Tutankhamun's tomb, the Holy Sepulchre and the mysterious Mayan Temple of Inscriptions to reveal a mysterious truth. 
Together they risk their lives, pursued by martial assassins and renegade special forces, fighting the forces of evil to discover hidden knowledge so precious that it has lain dormant for over a thousand years...

I really don't know what I am going to read after these.  I have a huge stack of TBR books, I actually have another book started so I will probably read that one.  I also need to read Cinder before the end of the month, but I just ordered it last week so it should be here today or tomorrow.  That may be my next one.  I am pretty confident that I will adjust to my new schedule this week and once I do I can get back into my normal reading rhythm once again.

What are you reading today?
