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

Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Marcia.  The meme links one to what comes into other bloggers mailboxes during the week. Enormously interesting!

The first one for this week is

A family story set in England - mixed parentage children - Asperger's Syndrome and people trying to balance life and relationships. A good one I think.

Hearts & Minds by Rosy Thornton. Love her books and saw this review on The Captive Reader and was captivated!


Next was influenced by Cornflower Books. The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I have been trying to get this book for simply ages and was delighted to find this during my last week in Melbourne.



The next book was influenced by a review on Savidge Reads. Catherine O'Flynn's The News where you are.

The last book for my Mailbox this week was one I picked up since I liked the last one I read by the same author.
Anne Perry's Buckingham Palace Gardens.




It's Monday - What are you Reading is hosted by Book Journey.



It is a mammoth job this last week in Melbourne to squeeze in as much reading as I can. Right now I am reading the Catherine O'Flynn book and then hope to go on to Hearts & Minds.

Leaving Melbourne on Sunday - been a short visit this time and sad to leave but nice to get back to Sri Lanka as well.

Oh, I'm adding that new Rosy Thornton book (Hearts and Minds) to my list! I loved Tapestry of Love.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

Is Sri Lanka your home? Have you been on vacation in Melbourne or going to school. You'll have lots of time to read on the plane, no doubt. What is on your reading list?

I read and enjoyed Rosy Thorntons A Tapestry of Love a while ago. The News Where you Are sounds good too.

I hope your flight home is good!

I am completely jealous that you are getting to read The Secret History for the first time. I really wish it was me. I loved that book.

So many books, so little time...reading is turning out to be as arduous as writing. I'd like to read your review of Catherine O'Flynn's THE NEWS WHERE YOU ARE.

Interesting selection of books. I have a bunch of books going at once. A lot of them are library books that are due soon. Please come see what I'm reading.
