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



Coming to this meme after a bit of an absence. The host for this month is 4 the LOVE of BOOKS

The few books which came into my home were 


The Novel in the Viola which I read and reviewed. I just loved this book. Despite its overtones of sadness!!!



My enthusiasm for this author does not wane.  Human relationships at its best.



Meera Syal's debut novel. Immigrant stories fascinate me. Maybe because my three children are immigrants in Australia! the adjustments are many and varied and fascinating.

The Colour

The immigrant theme continues but take it back a century. Another author whom I like.



The meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I finished 


Twisted family relationships - bitter and possessive. Possessive to the point of never ever letting go. Love that can be so blind is it love I wonder. Marvellous read, review coming.

I only realised today that Elizabeth George is American. She writes books set in England with such descriptive detail that I had to actually go and double check that this was so!

I enjoyed The Novel in the Viola too! I like immigrant fiction also. I hadn't heard of these other books so I will have to look into them. Joanna Trollope is an author I've been meaning to try.

I always find interesting books in your mailbox posts. I like immigrant stories too because my parents were immigrants. Enjoy your reading week.

Oh my gosh, I wouldn't have though Elizabeth George was an American! From her book descriptions, I would have thought she was British through and through!

Have a great week!

I'm glad you liked The Novel in the Viola! My review will be up this week. I enjoyed it but I may have liked the author's other book, Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English, a little bit more. Enjoy your week!
