MAILBOX MONDAY/IT'S MONDAY WHAT ARE YOU READING?

Mailbox Monday on tour at the moment is being hosted for December at Let Them Read Books. The books that came into my house were both wins - the first was The House of the Wind by Titania Hardie courtesy of Headline Publicity.  The second was Underground from Nat of the blog In Spring it is the Dawn. Thanks to both of them.

The next meme which is combined with Mailbox Monday is It's Monday - What are you Reading? hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.



The book I have just finished is The House of the Wind. The book which I have started next is Middlemarch (another win).  Several reviews have been delayed mainly due to pressure of work.

I just returned from an orphanage visit to Mannar. It was my Christmas visit well in advance with presents and clothes and shoes for Christmas. This week is also very full - my visit to the Negombo children's home is scheduled this week and there is an end of the year concert by the little ones also to attend!

I have been wanting to read MIDDLEMARCH as well notwithstanding its intimidating size.

I will admit to reading Middlemarch…when I was 15, but I probably should read it again at some point. Here is a look at my reading week.

Enjoy your new books.

Hi Mystique,

I love the sound of 'The House Of The Wind', great synopsis which really caught my attention. This one has gone straight onto the reading list, so thanks for bringing it to my attention.

I am certain that the children looked forward to and enjoyed your visit, just as much as you loved going to meet them.

I do a lot of voluntary work for a local charity in my area and it is always satisfying to know that my efforts are not in vain.

I hope that you enjoy your books this week and thanks for visiting Fiction Books.
