Mailbox Monday is being hosted for June by Dolce Bellezza

The books this week are 

The book may seem one track - the life of a talented flautist - one taken off the streets of a village, a boy who doesn't even know he has the talent but reading this one was very absorbing.

Death in Summer 

Looking for another recommended read (that's coming later as I've put a reserve on) I thought I'd pick another book by the same author. 

A story of a father and daughter reunited. 

A Rural Affair

Newly widowed Poppy feels only relief!!

Alys, Always

Have had this one on my TBR for ages. Just glad to get to it.

Jordi-Punti lost luggage

This was another recommendation from Cornflower Books!

This meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

After a very long time, I have a host of reading material for me to choose from and its become quite crazy for me trying to decide which book to go for first! Trying to be systematic and failing miserably! somehow I do seem to drift to the ones with gorgeous covers........


  1. Nice Mailbox. I like Lost Luggage and Dancing to the Flute. They look very good.

    ENJOY all your books.

    I didn't post a Mailbox Monday this week. I am not home yet. Will be heading home tomorrow from the BEA. I am just checking out everyone's mailboxes. :)

    I do have a review of THE TIME BETWEEN by Karen White posted this morning.

  2. Your books all look lovely. What a nice mailbox!

  3. Great stack of books...I love Elinor Lipman's books.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. I had to smile at your girlish pleasure of being so giddy with all your new books that you don't know which one to read first.

  5. Great mailbox! Enjoy all those terrific-looking books!

  6. I love having a big stack of books to chose from Mystica.
    Unlike you however, the covers often turns me off. There is a decidedly lack of taste amongst many editors these days, chosing a cover for its monetary appeal versus its esthetic approach! They all look the same after a while so I concentrate on the inside jacket or chose by the author's name or thanks to fellow readers such as yourself, follow a recommendation.
    Off my chest, just a pet peeve of mine! Oops!

  7. I am distracted by pretty covers too. The Family Man grabbed my attention. Have a great week.

  8. I've been seeing A Rural Affair around quite a bit lately. It just looks like such a fun book. Hope it's one you enjoy!

  9. Your books look good. I'm reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and Forever in Blue by Ann Brashares.

  10. Hi Mystica,

    I really love your varied selection this week. There are several of your authors that I know of, yet have never read any of the the books you highlight, so that's even better news.

    I can't just pick one to add to my own reading pile, from this amazing list. I particularly have my eye on 'Death In Summer', 'Alys, Always' and 'Lost Luggage', which all sound very intriguing and unique.

    Thanks for sharing this week and I hope that you enjoy all your great reads.


  11. Going by covers and titles, LOST LUGGAGE looks good to me. Happy reading!

  12. I get sidetracked by covers a lot although now that I read mostly on my kindle or iPad that's not as much of an issue. The Rural Man sounds like one I'd like and I love the cover. Happy reading. You sure do have a great selection.

  13. Great looking books in your mailbox!

  14. These all look good, especially the first one. Happy reading!

  15. Never heard of any of these but I hope you enjoy them all :)
    here is my Monday post.

  16. You do have many wonderful covers and they look varied. Hope you have had fun with your reading. :-)
