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



Nothing came into my Mailbox but I am hopeful it will come in tomorrow Tuesday! which is the US Monday!!!




This meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. 

I read all the books I received last week and did reviews on three of them. There is only the Anita and Me by Meera Syal to go. I thought the book would deal with the differences between an Indian girl born in the UK and the contrast to her English friends but it was a little more than that. Review coming up. I am always amazed at how much change immigrants face and how they cope with the changes, trying to adapt, most importantly most of them trying to blend in and not be confrontational!

Presently reading an Elizabeth George 


Thomas Lynley at his suave best with Havers his sartorial opposite! I still cannot imagine an American author writing about the British, the countryside, the appalling ghettos in the UK - so descriptive, so much detail you are actually living in it. 

Next on my list is a triology of P D James - another brilliant mystery murder author.

Elizabeth George is a great novelist. I haven't read this one yet, but I've read other books by her. Enjoy!

Here's what I'm reading this week.

I read Anita and Me years ago, but didn't like it as much as I had hoped. It did give a good insight in immigrant living in the UK, that's true.

Have a good week!

I loved this Elizabeth George book, much better than Believing The Lie. I was totally caught up in 'who did it'. :)

And empty mailbox means you can catch up in your stacks. Happy reading and have a great week!

Enjoy your new book! My mom loves Elizabeth George and is constantly trying to get me to read her. I really need to at some point! :)

Nice that you are all caught up. I don't think I've read anything by P.D. James but the name sounds familiar.
