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

Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Metroreader. Coming to this meme rather late as I just returned home from Rozella.

Just this one book which I bought with me from a Melbourne op shop. All I can say is that everyone over 50 should read this one!!

Last Tango in Toulouse by Mary Moody!

This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

The books I read this week are

A Fine Balance - Rohinton Mistry
(why I haven't got to Mistry's books before is another question to ponder)

East of Eden - Mrs. Henry Wood
(Loved the first half of the book but the last one hundred or so pages was me too much to be even remotely possible. I liked the writing style though. Old fashioned but nice)

The Third Rail - Michael Harvey. This was a book win from ages ago. A nice mystery/murder/detective read.

I finished reading Last Tango in Toulouse just before I got off the vehicle. I can fortunately read whilst travelling very easily. I find that lots of people cannot.

Reading next - Jean Plaidy's The Sixth Wife. Losing track of who was who this handles another aspect of the infamous Henry VIII saga.

Have a good week everyone!


  1. Mystica, lots of interesting books here and over the previous posts. Peter May and Jo Walton sound interesting. Thanks for the heads-up.

  2. I can't read in cars but I do sometimes listen to audiobooks instead.

    I love Tudor history so I'd probably enjoy The Sixth Wife. I still haven't read A Fine Balance though I have heard it is excellent from many people.

    Have a fantastic week!

  3. It sounds like your new book is great!

  4. I'll look for your mailbox books. I one who cannot read in a car but I can when on a train.

  5. I can't read in a car either, I get very motion sick. I'm fine on a plane though.

    I liked The Sixth Wife, but you're right, it can be hard to keep track of who's who!

  6. Enjoy your new book and have a great week!

  7. I cannot read in a car and it vexes me!!! IT would make any long car trip so much more bearable. Thank goodness for audiobooks!

  8. Last Tango in Toulouse sounds like a book I would enjoy as I love reading books set in Europe. Looking forward to your thoughts!

  9. Great reading week. Sometimes I can read in the car just find and then at times I cannot.
