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

Mailbox Monday is being hosted for January by At Home with Books.


It's Monday What are you reading is hosted by Sheila
at Book Journey.
















The books that I picked up for this long weekend which ends tomorrow are :


Stella Gibbons Cold Comfort Farm has been on my radar for quite some time.


Jennifer Weiner's Then Came you is also a book that I have read reviews about and have  been wanting to pick up.






And lastly Missing Julia is one I picked up as I liked the cover. I also liked the Chevy Stevens book with a similar title but this is nothing of that story. 
       
I still have books left over from my last foray into the library. Hopefully all will be read and finished soon as I have another list (all culled from everyone's 2011 best reading lists!).

The book I am reading right now is the Then Came You - just 50 pages in and very interesting. Its the second of January here and everyone's thoughts are now turning to the mundane and getting back to work tomorrow (today is mainly a holiday here though my daughter the nurse is working!)

I hope everyone had a very good New Years Eve and that the New Year will be blessed for all.
