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



I am trying to keep up with the memes. Two weeks in a row seems good!

               



     




A very handsome mailbox! I've got different genres and this is what I really like. I am trying to step out of my comfort zone a wee bit and this mix is helping.

I am reading two books currently, something which I rarely do. One is The Road to Rangoon and the other is Rich Friends. The books couldn't be more dissimilar - one set in abject poverty and a rebellion in Myanmaar and the other set in California - a family saga of people who are rather rich!

We have had a long weekend with Friday off as well (Esala Full Moon Poya Day). It has been a lazy time for me. Caught up with friends, had several meals out, altogether a good time ready for the working week.

Mystica, I like reading out of my comfort zone and I'm currently reading "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte, I try and read two or three classics a year.

A great selection which I enjoyed looking at. Thank you so much :)

The Color of Water in July sounds really good, partially because it takes place in my state! All Michiganders are familiar with Up North, northern Michigan as a top vacation spot in summer. I look forward to your review. :) Your long weekend sounds like it was fun. :)

That is a nice mailbox! Bitter Winds looks very interesting to me.

I hope you enjoy your new books! Picture Perfect looks like a fun light read and I love historical fiction so I'm curious about Prisoner of the Queen.

All of your new reads look fantastic! Enjoy!

I try to mix up genres too and read out of my comfort zone from time to time, sometimes it leads me into a new world and sometimes I just know not to go down that road again. Hope you enjoy your reading explorations!

Just came across Color of Water in July somewhere else. It sounds pretty good. Hope you have a great reading week! Glad you had a great time during the long weekend. :-)

Very nice variety. I have a few on my wishlist too.

So many of these sound good, Mystica. The Road to Rangoon and The Color of Water in July in particular. Oh, and Bitter Winds! Enjoy!
