Mailbox Monday/ It's Monday! What are you reading?




The following books came this week:

The meme is from Sheila at Book Journey.


Reading two books almost alongside each other!

Vanessa and her sister - historical fiction and good. Lots of reference to Leonard Woolf who was Government Agent in Jaffna, Sri Lanka during the time of the British in Sri Lanka.

The Diary of a Pissed Off Flight Attendant. I am almost thinking of giving this up because it is very off hand kind of writing. Almost as if the writer has a pleasure in giving a comeuppance to anyone!

Its mid day here on a Monday and already I feel oppressed with the list of things to do!

Abandon! Abandon! Go for it.

Hope your next book is better.

Mystica, I would be interested in knowing about your views on Priya Parmar's novel. The Indian book trade is flooded with new-age fiction.

Have a great week,

The book that is annoying you right now would probably annoy me. I hope your day improves.

I don't think I could do that book either. Your new ones look good though!

I've been curious about Vanessa and her Sister and will watch for that review.

You should drop the flight attendant book if it's bothering you.

Vanessa and Her Sister sounds like a fascinating book.

My rule is that if I don't like a book (or the main character) I quit reading it even if it is one I've requested for review. I do try to give the book a chance but I'd rather not devote free time to reading something I don't enjoy.

Good luck with your to-do list!

Vanessa and Her Sister sounds good - enjoy your books!

The cover for The Abbot's Agreement is both creepy and cool!

Majanka Verstraete said...

"The Best Corpse for the Job" sounds intriguing! I love the title. Enjoy your reads.

Kathy Martin said...

I find it hard to abandon books but agree that you should if you aren't finding it entertaining. Better luck with your next choice!

I really like the Hugh de Singleton series (The Abbot's Agreement). I am behind and need to get moving. Hope you like him as much as I do. Have a great week.

Introverted Jen said...

If you're thinking about moving on, you probably should. There are too many good books out there to keep wasting time on one you're not enjoying. Have a great week!

A. Reiding said...

I really want to read Vanessa and her sister.
If you think you need to move on, perhaps you should--life is too short to not finish great books!

I like the title The Best Corpse For the Job. :) I bet it will be a good mystery.

ENJOY all your books.

Definitely give up if you aren't enjoying it! I hope your week is going well and that you're checking things off your to-do list!

Wow I had no idea Priya Parma had a new book out, I loved Exit the Actress. Going to add Vanessa and Her Sister to my wishlist. Good luck with your to-do-list ... I'm stressing over everything I've got to get done. Happy reading :)
