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


I am spoiled for choice! So many books courtesy of the Carnegie library in Melbourne. The host for this month for this meme is BooksNAround


Ghastly Business was the recommended read on Cornflower Books.  That book is only going to come back after I leave Melbourne. This is another book by the same author.


After reading Mariana, this was my next step.


I have seen this author on several blogs. This is my first read of the author.


The Mitford sisters has fascinated me for years. I have been able to get hold of several of the books but this account by the youngest sister is a new one for me. They were often overshadowed by Pam and Nancy so this one gives another view of this family.




This has been on my TBR for over one year. Finally got to it.



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


I'm reading two books - Drowning Rose as well as Wait for Me. The two are a contrast to each other and
thankfully Wait for Me is in a big print. Ideal for night time reading.

Am visiting quite a few blogs as I have more free time than at home. Enjoying seeing what everyone else is reading.

Oh you so did get some great reads. Nice week!

These are all new-to-me authors and that is mainly because I rarely read new books, perhaps one or two a year, not counting the Harry Potter series which I read. Most of the novels I read are dated anywhere from 1850 to 1985 or thereabouts. Interesting titles, though.

I haven't heard of any of these!


Wishing you a great reading week!

Maisie is quite popular - I hope you love her! The Mitford Sisters book intrigues me.

I am extremely curious about the Mitford Sisters. I've never heard of them. Maisie is lovely. I can't remember where I left off with her series though.
