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


Mailbox Monday was delightful this week! Hosted this week by Burton Book Review. Starting off with a book win from Unabridged Chick - The Sumerton Women. Thank you Audra.

The other books were purchased by me from my second hand book shop and are real finds!
A Josephine Cox (read about these books so much on Cornflower Books)

Described as irresistible storytelling - can anyone resist.


A first novel by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason. Absolutely unheard of till today.

This came highly recommended on several blogs including Cornflower Books. I started to read it when I was last in Melbourne and found it not easy to read. I am going back to this as I think there must be something in it I have missed. Everyone around has found it very good reading.




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


Almost finished this book and finding it very good. Cover does not do this book justice though.

Those look like great books! Enjoy! And thanks for mentioning Cornflower, I used to read her before my comuputer breakdown/bookmark loss. Now I can add her to my bloglist again!

I wonder what The Rule of Four is like. You have really good books. Enjoy.

I haven't heard of any of those, but they sure do look good. Happy reading!

I guess the saying "You can't judge a book by its cover" holds true for the book you're reading. Enjoy all your great finds!

I haven't read any of these. I hope you enjoy them all.

The Secret History! You have The Secret History!! I love that book, have read it over several times since it's first publication. Now I feel like reading it again since I saw it on your post. Lucky you to have it ahead of you!

I did enjoy The Secret History but I read it when I was at university myself. I hope you try one more time.

Maggie O'Farrell I want to read, too.

I checked out After You'd Gone on Amazon and it sounds really good. I'm adding it to my list. (it also has a great cover!!)

The Rule of Four is an excellent and complex mystery.

My favorite read last week was Swahili for the Broken Hearted by Peter Moore. Please come see what else I'm reading.
