MAILBOX MONDAY & IT'S MONDAY! WHAT ARE YOU READING?


My last Mailbox Monday was done on 16th February - so I am looking forward to this post this week.  Being in Melbourne allows me access to so many books - my problem is trying to see how many books I can squeeze into an eighteen day trip.

The books with me this Monday are 


A beautiful English girl disappears on the island of Corsica. It is not a normal kidnapping. Implicated are the PM of Britain. This is a thriller.


The Professor of Poetry


This was a book I read about on Cornflower Books. Its slightly slower reading but I think I need this in the midst of very exciting reads!


An Echo in the Bone (Outlander, #7)

This is a chunkster and I need to get going on this soon. Has to be exciting.

Sisters Of Mercy

This is the only book which I picked out which I haven't read a review of so I hope it surprises me.

Family Storms (Storms, #1)


I've seen reviews of this author's books and have never got to read one. Almost done with this one. Slightly surreal and I can see it ending happily but its an easy read.

Hot in Melbourne as well. I seem to take the hot weather with me. Was hoping for cool and chill!!!

Lovely books! An Echo in the Bone caught my eye. I need to try a Gabaldon book sometime. Enjoy all your new arrivals!

Daniel Silva's novel looks interesting since I like reading political thrillers. I hope you have a very good time in Melbourne.

I'm not a big Caroline Overington fan but my mum's entire book club is!

Visiting the children sounds the ticket right now Mystica.
All good titles albeit I'll skip V.C. Andrews (a favourite of my teenagers a long time ago), just not for me.
Wishing you a happy stay in Aussie land!

Nice selections. I'll be interested in your thoughts on An Echo in the Bone. I stopped reading the series after Drums of Autumn.
Hope your week was good.
