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


After two weeks of absolute nothing I got some good books this week. Mailbox Monday is being hosted for November by Bermudaonion.


This was a win from Giraffe Days. Thank you Shannon.


My second foray into this gorgeous author!

 
The precise and almost dry sense of humour of this author is what attracts me here. Always a favourite of mine.
 
 
Recommended on several blogs. Quite a heavy tome so I am keeping this aside for a bit.

I've never chosen an Oprah Book Club pick so this was a first for me.
 
 
 

This meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Right now I have a Julian Rathbone and a Patricia Cornwell going side by side! the Cornwell is gaining over the Rathbone rather fast. I also have the Hillary Jordan waiting on the sidelines.

Monday mornings are generally busy and tomorrow is again a holiday being the full moon Poya day so there are things that need to get done today and fast. Its a public holiday tomorrow so all banking and any office work must be finished now.

Predictably, Ken Follett used to be popular in my youth with titles like "Eye of the Needle" and "The Key to Rebecca" on top of the list. I haven't read anything by him in the last two decades though I continue to read books by his contemporary, Jack Higgins. Good suspense novels all round.

I loved When She Woke and Pillars. Hope you enjoy them! If you really get into Pillars, the size won't matter to you.

Is Trace a new one Mystica? I don't remember seeing it

Have a great reading week!

I loved The Pillars of the Earth, the tv mini series was great too. Enjoy your reads this week :)

Fay said...

Your selection of books looks truly riveting. I think I would probably scare myself into submission if I read these! I hope you have a great reading week :D

That's an awesome selection of books. Such a co-incidence that I am currently reading Atwood (The Handmaid's Tale), and it is my second Atwood novel as well :)

The Pillars of the Earth is definitely worth the time. This one even made me turn down a date to read it!
You have some great reads - enjoy!

Mary (Bookfan) said...

I read Pillars of the Earth (before Oprah got hold of it, haha) and loved reading about the building of cathedrals. Enjoy your new books!

Christina T said...

I haven't read Pillars of the Earth though it sounds really good. I have read When She Woke. It was thought provoking and I look forward to your review of it!

(Diane) Bibliophile By the Sea said...

Pillars of the Earth is excellent, and I've been meaning to get to my copy of Cat's Eye --enjoy your new books.

Jennifer Hartling said...

Holly (2 Kids and Tired) said...

I've always wondered about Pillars of the Earth, but I've never looked into it. Enjoy!

I have picked up a Cornwell lately, maybe in the new year.

Hope you have an awesome week!!

leeswammes said...

I really enjoyed the Hillary Jordan book and I think you will too. Pillars of the Earth was great too.

For a long time, Songs in Ordinary Time was a favorite of mine. When I read it recently I didn't like it quite that much anymore. I look forward to reading what you think of it!

Sam (Tiny Library) said...

I liked When She Woke. And Pillars of the Earth is a hefty tome indeed!

Elysium said...

I used to love Cornwell's books but haven't read like last 3 or 4 books.

Hope you enjoy your new reads!

Elizabeth said...

Looks like these ones were worth waiting for. ENJOY!!!

Cat's Eye is one Atwood that I haven't read yet. I hope you love it!

Introverted Jen said...

Pillars intimidated me for a long time, but once I finally decided to dive in, I loved it! Good luck when you get to it!

Nise' said...

I loved Pillars of the Earth, could not put it down! Enjoy all your books.

Yvonne said...

Everything looks so good! Have a great week!

Myra Garces-Bacsal from GatheringBooks said...

Hi there Mystica. Margaret Atwood is an absolute favorite, and Cat's Eye is pretty heavy going, but definitely one of my more brilliant reads. Can't remember much of the storyline as I've read this a few years back, but definitely a keeper. I also own my copy of Pillars of the Earth, but haven't gotten around to reading it yet - saving it for later.

Teddy Rose said...

Nice variety. I hope you enjoy them all!

Anna said...

My book club had a great discussion on When She Woke. Looking forward to your thoughts. Happy reading!
