Mailbox Monday for February is sponsored by Loris Reading Corner.

I either have an absolute drought in books or it becomes something like a blizzard - something equivalent to a 3 feet of snow.

Foreign Affairs by Alison Lurie - a 1984 Pulitzer prize winner.

For the Love of Venice
Anything to do with Venice is a big draw for me!

Weighed in the Balance (William Monk, #7)

Weighed in the Balance by Anne Perry

The Last Empress (Empress Orchid, #2)

The last decades of the nineteenth century were very violent in China. Seen impressive reviews of this book around.

Flight Lessons

I like stories about women and this is about two of them.

The Gravedigger's Daughter

love stories of immigrants. This is another one.

Front Cover

A biography of one of history's most famous femme fatales!

Shadows and Strongholds

Set in 1148, one of my favourite historical fiction authors


  1. Some good books to begin the week with. I have lost count of the number of times I have come across Anne Perry's books and never bought any. I look forward to reading your review of WEIGHED IN THE BALANCE. I also enjoyed reading your reviews of the past few days. All new authors for me.

  2. I got the blizzard today - 8 books in the mail!!
    I hope one of your new books breaks your slump
    Have a great reading week!
