Mailbox Monday on tour. Presently being hosted by Staci from Life in the Thumb. I am combining it with the meme hosted by Book Journey - It's Monday what are you reading.

The two blogs connects one to a host of interesting bloggers who share their reading interests with you. Of course it will be adding to your TBR lists but that is half the fun.


Two books only in my mailbox this week. (Still trying to catch up with last week's reading).

The first was a win from Sakura of Chasing Bawa. Thank you Sakura. This will be by my first read of this author.

The second is sent by the author herself. Thank you Olivia.


What I intend to read this week are :

Christmas Holidays - Somerset Maugham
In the Shadow of the Crown or maybe The Sixth Wife - Jean Plaidy
The 12.30 from Croydon - Freeman Wills Crofts

This week is going to be as hectic as the last but hopefully some reading will be done.

I have to post reviews of Shantharam (loved it) and The Legacy (so so).

Now to visit the blogs!

Lake looks quite good. I haven't read anything from Yoshimoto either.

The Lake looks awesome! Have a great week!

Lydia said...

I have The Legacy on my shelf as well - a little worried with your "so so"! We'll see =)

Totally agree with you, by the way, on your review of Heyer's book. She is a total comfort writer, I'm thrilled I was introduced to her.

I loved Shantaram too. Felt like such a lot was packed into the book even though it was quite huge. I can't wait for his sequel.

I loved Miss Hildreth for the onslaught of giggles I got when reading on the Metro.

Lake looks scary. Can't wait to hear what you think of both next. Happy reading :)

Lake ... I think I have that one .. yes, I do .. the reviews were fab! I really enjoyed Miss Hildreth Wore Brown - some funny little anecdotes that reminded me of my Southern aunts, grandmother, and great-grandmother! :)
