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


Hosted by Mari reads for April. 

Nothing new for me this week and very little reading done.  Four reviews went up this last week which for me is pretty good!



This meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. I already visited over eighteen blogs participating in this meme and have come up with another host of TBRs. 

Am in the middle of this one! Set in Italy with lots of intrigue and the Medicis.

The Sign of the Weeping Virgin


Sri Lanka as a whole has slowed down with today also a public holiday (Monday). Unlikely that anyone will turn up for work tomorrow as the auspicious day for going back to work is the 18th. Banks, hospitals and all government departments will work albeit with skeleton staff and nothing much getting done. I have to renew my passport and maybe its a good day tomorrow to go and check this out.  This can't be done online - you have to go in person with all your documents and photocopies and its a tedious task but our Passport Office is extremely efficient one now and you get it in one day!

I find books set in ancient Italy always include intrigue and interesting characters. Enjoy your reading week!

Looks like a good one. I'm intrigued by the Medicis.

Tax day in the US (so we have to work, ha).
The Medicis always make for interesting novels.

Looks like an intriguing story, and anything set in Italy would be enjoyable. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

Intrigue and Medicis go well together.

Good luck with getting your passport.

Any book with the Medicis sounds good to me. We have a holiday here in Massachusetts today, too. It's called Patriots Day, commemorating the American Revolutionary War.

Have a great week and enjoy your upcoming reads :)

Haven't seen this book before, sounds interesting, and I love the cover!

Good luck with the passport process! Today is a local holiday so everything is closed, plus there's a big marathon, so there's tons of traffic. I'm very happy I get to stay home and read!

Dealing with passports is always a chore. At least you have your book to keep you company. Enjoy!

Passport renewal in a day ... impressive! Have a great week and enjoy your reads :)

Mystica, not much difference in passport procedures in our two countries. Here, the first two levels have been privatised and the final two are handled by the foreign office. While new passports take a minimum of 45 days, renewals, I think, are done the same day.

Looks like another winner in your mailbox. Enjoy!
