Mailbox Monday / It's Monday What are you reading?

Am combining the meme of Mailbox Monday showcasing what books came into your house with It's Monday What are you reading? Mailbox Monday is being hosted for October by Savvy Verse and Wit.
It's Monday What are you reading? is hosted by Book Journey.

The books which all came into my house via my second hand shop

Mixed reviews on this fan fiction sequel. Love the entire lot so lets see what it's about.


A blurb says Perry gets the Victorian mood just right!!! that is good enough recommendation for me.

The improbability of Aunt Margaret's Lover with this very Elizabethan cover intrigues me.
Inspector Linley is on par with Darcy for me. So I do not think explanations are needed.

A WWII background so I picked it up. Also like the cover.


Had not seen this on any blog so thought I'd pick it up.

For reading this week I have not yet started on Rohinton Mistry's book which is a fat one. I also have
River of Smoke which I will start only on Sunday when I am at Rozella. Right now it is Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain. Again a favourite period of mine set in 1914 also adapted for the BBC.

I keep wanting to go to our big secondhand shop for more books .. but then I look at the piles on my TBR bookshelves and think to myself, "argh! I really need to read more of THOSE first!"

Great lot of books! Enjoy them all!

Great mailbox! I like the look of the WWII book, and the Pride and Prejudice "twenty years later."

Enjoy!

You always find books I have never heard of but look very good. I need to write these down and check out our used bookstore!

I'm looking forward to your thoughts on the P&P sequel. I haven't read that one. Enjoy your new books!

That's a neat pile of books. Do you finish reading them by Sunday in time for next week's Mailbox Monday? I usually get through one book over a week to ten days. Painful, isn't it!
