Mailbox Monday/It's Monday - What are you Reading?

Mailbox Monday shows what you received during the week. This month the host is Savvy Verse and Wit.

Combining it with Book Journey's meme - Its Monday What are you Reading?

Both bloggers give you an insight into what is the latest in the reading world. Please do go visit the links.

Nothing new in my Mailbox for this week though several wins expected! Disappointed that a win that was scheduled to come did not turn up when the blogger informed me that it was only for US/Canada. I wish they would put it so in the original post!!!

For the Monday - What are you Reading ? Right now reading Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain described as a Haunting elegy for a lost generation. - set in 1914 a period which I like to read about and the struggle of women to be educated/have a voice of their own. My kind of book definitely.

It's nice to have a slower week from time to time. I'm glad you've got some books coming to look forward to. Happy reading!

There must be something about the post of late - I'm waiting on a record six parcels! Sometimes the waiting is just as fun though ;)

It's frustrating when that happens in giveaways. Should be made clear. Your historical book sounds interesting.

That's an interesting time period - 1914. Hope you enjoy the book. Strange to think you are suffering the heat while we get the cooler weather now. Have a lovely week.

A slow week means you can put a dent in your to-read pile! ;)
