Mailbox Monday/It's Monday What Are You Reading?



Mailbox Monday is being hosted for May by Martha




It's Monday What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

My Mailbox was quite full this week mainly because I found the time to go hunting for books!


Shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2001 (you can see how long it takes me to get to the Booker!!!)
this is considered one of McEwan's best books.

Fell in love with the cover a long while ago but got it only now this is Mustian's debut novel.


Part of a gemstone triology this is the last book.


Set in 1966 which makes it more or less my time! with a name like Smoky O'Donnel I couldn't resist.


I am just starting Barbara Kingsolver's Prodigal Summer. I got quite a bit of reading done this last week but not much of reviews as I was away from home most of the time.



Have a good week everyone!

You have lots of good reading coming up! I'm not familiar with At Ruby's - I need to check that one out. Enjoy!

I also like the book cover of The Gendarme and want to read the book. My review partner has read Frank Delaney and loves his writing. Enjoy your new books!

Oh, Downtown is one I've missed...I'll have to check it out. Love that time period, too.

I read Atonement awhile back...wow!

Enjoy your reads....

I really liked The Gendarme too. Anything by Anne Rivers Siddons should be a good read. I'm putting this one on the list. Have a wonderful week, Mystica, and happy reading.

Prodigal Summer and Atonement have both been sitting on my shelf too for, oh, a while!

I'm intrigued by Prodigal Summer...I've never read anything by Barbara Kingsolver - this might be the first one!

Have a great week!
