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

Mailbox Monday is a meme sponsored by Marcia at Mailbox Monday.

The books that came into my home are

Another Elizabeth George


Sarah Donati - Into the Wilderness. Set in the 14th century in an America which is still being
settled this is going to be a new topic for me. A bit of romance as well here.



Emma Donaghue - Slammerkin. All I know of this author is her previous book Room. Alternatively horrified, fascinated and repelled by the book I nevertheless read it to the end.





The other meme I really enjoy participating in is the one hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading?.


After a very long time I am having three books on the go.


This is one I am struggling to finish. A period of history which I would like to know more about.


This history of China is very good reading but I can only do about 25 pages at a time. Its detailed, intricate and in a very small font (my most famous peeve!).


Michael Ondaatie originally from Sri Lanka and an illustrious author. This was a book I had been looking out for.

Weather here bright, burning sunlight during the day and pouring with rain, all grey and gloomy (which I love).  The relief from the sun is immense.

A happy week to all.

I liked Room, but haven't checked out Slammerkin yet. Hope you enjoy it!

Enjoy your books. Two weeks ago I had to take a break from this meme. Our one year old tuxedo cat had gone missing. It took us ten days to find her. Please come see what I'm reading now.

I never did read The Room even with the best intentions, but I should check out this one. Also, have always wondered about Elizabeth George. She seems quite prolific.

I've heard Slammerkin is excellent! I, too, struggled with The Gendarme. Have a great week!

I thought Room was really well done so looking forward to hearing what you think of Slammerkin. Enjoy!

I enjoyed Slammerkin. More my sort of read than Room. I have the Sara Donati on my shelf too.

Kaye said...

The Gendarme was a big hit with me. Sorry to hear you are struggling. The history is so interesting, though. Have a great week and happy reading! <(")

I enjoyed The Gendarme - hope u do as well.

Into the Wilderness has been on my list for a long time. I'll watch for your review!

Serena said...

Happy reading. Slammerkin sounds interesting...yet disturbing.

Slammerkin looks so intriguing...I still need to read ROOM.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

Into the Wilderness looks good.

Wonder if Slammerkin will be as good as Room. Will be looking forward to your review.

I read Slammerkin before I read Room and they are completely different kinds of books. The Gendarme looks fascinating.

I have heard good things about the Donoghue book. Good list you got there

The book about China sounds dense but fascinating. I'm so interested in history :)Anil's Ghost sounds lovely. I hope you enjoy your reading this week :)

JoV said...

You remind me that I need to check out Gendarme and read it. I'm always intrigued with French and North Africa read. I saw this in the UK airport, I'll see if I can get a copy somewhere. Thanks for the reminder!

JoV said...

I read the reviews on Gendarme and found out it is the Turkish Gendarme not the French Gendarme! Still sounds intriguing...

Shelleyrae said...

An eclectic mix this week for you, I hope you enjoy them.

Wishing you a great reading week

I've read all of Sara Donati's Wilderness series and loved them, a favourite series after Diana Gabaldon's Outlander. Enjoy!
Slammerkin has been on my TBR pile for quite a while.
Have a great week and happy reading :)

Your book on China looks interesting. I try very hard to read some non-fiction every month, but it's tough to balance its weight with some lighter fiction.

Kristen said...

I really enjoyed both Into the Wilderness and Slammerkin and hope you do as well.

Nice selection of books. Happy reading.

Except for the abundance of CYBILS reading, things are back to normal. My favorite book was How to Wash a Cat by Rebecca M. Hale. Please come see what I'm reading now.
