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


Mailbox Monday hosted for the month of April  by Cindy's Love of Books


Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

It was again bonanza time for me. A very good, heavy, fat mailbox!

The description on this book is lyrical. Celebrating the wildness of nature and human love set amongst the mountains of Appalachia.

A very small book involving family. I still cannot see the romance bit of the title but this is described as vintage Brookner.

Again relationships and complicated! I think I'd like this one.


I picked this one up because it has a section of it set in Venice. Could not resist it.


After Brookner this is a necessity - engrossing, suspenseful and laugh out loud funny!

This was a win from Books, Belles and Beaux! Thank you Joanne.



The other was a win from Quirky Girls Read. Thanks for the win.  This is a book I am looking forward to very much.



Right now I am reading a memoir of Edwina Mountbatten.  Halfway through and I think the best is yet to come.



After five days holiday it is going to be tough getting into the grind of work! tomorrow is going to be a hectic day, hence the early post.

I love Kingsolver but haven't read Prodigal Summer yet, can't wait to see what you think of it. And the Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott looks great too.

Sarah Williams said...

I am looking forward to hearing what you think of Anne Merrick and the Alcott book. Both are on my list to read....sometime.

I've had The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott for awhile now but haven't read it. Hope you enjoy your new books!

I haven't read anything by Anita Brookner or Barbara Kingsolver yet though I have read a few of Jennifer Weiner's books. It is nice to read something funny in between serious books. I've also got The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott though I much prefer the cover of your book to mine. I still need to read it.

MarthaE said...

You have a good mix - good thinking to add a lighter, humorous book in the group. This looks like a lot for one week. Happy reading!

Brooke from The Bluestocking Guide said...

You got a lot. I'm jealous.

Here is mine

I really liked Prodigal Summer. Hope you do too!

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

Jennifer Weiner is an excellent choice. Your books look wonderful - some of those covers you could frame!

I read Prodigal Summer well before I started book blogging. I loved it. Happy reading.

My favorite read this week was Sapphique by Catherine Fisher. Please come see what else I'm reading.

YAY for bulging mailboxes ... always nice and you have some great choices there. I hope you enjoy The Turning of Anne Merrick as much as I did.
Have a great week and happy reading :)

Hi Mystique,

What a fantastic haul of books this week, I was spoiled for choice, what was not to like?

I have never read anything by Anita Brookner and have heard good things about her work, so those were the two of your books that I chose to list for my future reading.

Enjoy them all,

Yvonne

Cindy said...

What a great mix of box you got. I like Jennifer Weiner's books and i hope you enjoy it.

Judith / Leeswammes said...

Wow, that is a wonderful list of books! I read and loved Prodigal Summer, I actually re-read it at least twice. Hope you find it as good as I did!

Holly said...

I liked The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott quite a bit and am really looking forward to her new one coming out later this year. Also can't wait to read The Turning of Anne Merrick. I've seen great reviews of it everywhere. Enjoy your new books!

I live in the Appalachians, so Prodigal Summer is close to my heart. I absolutely loved it. Enjoy your week!

Wendy Sice said...

Looks like some great reads! I have the Kingsolver one, but am yet to read it. And I love the look of the Louisa May Alcott and Mountbatten books. Adding them to my ipad! xx
