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



This month the meme is being hosted by 5 Minutes for Books.

I had a lovely mailbox  - first is a perennial favourite author of mine. Elizabeth George


I've already started on this one and its fabulous!

This author is new to me and I liked the story.



A different genre altogether in Michelle Moran's Nefertiti



This is a win from The Blue Bookcase. Thank you so much for the win which came in just a few days courtesy DHL!





This meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I am reading Elizabeth George's This Body of Death which is absolutely amazing. Have read and reviewed quite a few books this past week. I have a good stock of books now in hand for the coming weeks.

Next weekend I will be flying to Melbourne to visit the children and haunt the Carnegie library. I think the fascination I have for Melbourne is partly the books! the variety and the choices available are so good and my lists are all ready to go.

Those titles are new to me.

I had a fantastic week of reading so it's really difficult to pick a favorite book. I'm going to have go with a fan girl response and say the best (out of an extremely good set of books) was The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente. Please come and see what else I'm reading.

Missing Mark looks great - I love that kind of cover. Hope you'll enjoy it. My friend bought an Elisabeth George the other day, she's read lots of her books but I haven't read any yet! Obviously I'm missing out.

Have a great time in Melbourne.
