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

My posts are going to be sans images as long as I am posting whilst traveling.

Today I am at Kalpitiya -  a place renowned for whale watching, dolphin watching and kite surfing. Very popular with the tourists. Locals less so. I too have not been to the beach to watch either but I am not a beach fan!

This weeks mailbox brought in the following

Isabella - Colin Falconer. Powerful queen who has to contend with a homosexual King.

The Nightingale Girls - Donna Douglas

Wylding Hall - Elizabeth Hand

Inside the  O'Briens - Lisa Genova - read about this one in a review. Netgalley kindly sent it on very quickly.

It's Monday! What are you reading?   This meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey introduces you to books otherwise unknown.

Reading Whylding Hall. A 70s style folk/rock band with all its attendant lifestyle reminiscing about a major incident which changed their lives. I've not yet realized or come to the "incident" sO it's quite a mystery as well.

Weather is very very hot. Not a breath of wind even. There is a belief here that rain will come on Good Friday so everyone looking forward to that.

Inside the O'Briens is one I definitely want to read. Hope you enjoy it and your other books.

I also hope you get a break soon from the hot weather!

JoAnn said...

I'd like to read Inside the O'Briens, too... sounds like readers should keep the tissues handy!

Lisa Genova did a great job educating the reader about a horrible disease in Inside the O'Briens. My review will post in a week or two.
Hope your weather becomes more tolerable very soon.

A beach sounds good to me. We had eight inches of snow yesterday and a snow day today. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Hi Mystica,

I hope you are having a wonderful time on your travels :)

I am not a fan of very hot weather, nor beach holidays, however I did check out some on-line images of Kalpitiya and it does look wonderful.

You have quite a selection of varied genres this week, however 'The Nightingale Girls' is the one which caught my eye and seems to be getting some very positive ratings and reviews. I shall look forward to discovering your thoughts about it.

Thanks for sharing,

I think I have Inside The O'Briens coming up soon. I hope you enjoy it!

Maybe the key to enjoying a seaside getaway is to find a place to enjoy the view without actually having to contend with the crazy vacationers!
