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



Mailbox Monday being hosted for the month of November by Bermudaonion.


I have been seeing this author on several blogs I follow. I've read one and it was a light hearted read
though definitely very much feet on the ground.


 
A Very English Agent set in 1852 - a period of the nineteenth century very often neglected.
 
 
I am expanding my reading horizons and reading something described as Victorian gothic!
 
A very English crime fiction author and the suave, professional Inspector Lynley along with the haphazard, casual partner Havers. One I am looking so very much to.
 
 
Another author coming up on the blogs.
 
The next meme for Monday is It's Monday! What Are You Reading hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney.
 
 
I have been reading quite a bit but the reviews are getting late and blogger did not work on the scheduling thingie and posted two posts on Sunday! Was a bit disappointed over that.
 
I am reading the memoir of Dawn French. Very humorous and the only problem is that it is such a big book, very difficult to handle in a vehicle!
 
 
 
I still have Anil's Ghost and two books on India. I cannot understand why I don't seem to be able to go further on the William Dalrymple one. I love his writing so very much but this time around its hard going.

I'm interested to read more about "Anil's Ghost" and the two books on India. I agree, Dalrymple is a terrific writer though I need to be in the mood to read historical works. Sometimes the narrative style of a book is enough to keep me engrossed even if the content does not, which is rarely the case.

I've got quite a few Jill Mansell books to read, they're supposed to be quite light and funny. In the Woods is on my TBR mountain.
Enjoy your reads this week :)
