Mailbox Monday and It's Monday...What are you reading?

Mailbox Monday
is a gathering place for readers to
share the books that came into their house last week 
and explore great book blogs. 
Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
Hosted this month by


The Temptation of the Night Jasmine (Pink Carnation #5) by Lauren Willig
The Masque of the Black Tulip (Pink Carnation #2) by Lauren Willig 
** I bought both of these books in the used section of Shuler Books & Music in East Lansing. I could've walked out with a ton more but common sense prevailed!!! 
Total spent: $14.50 
--------------------------------------------------------------------


Hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of Books
We discuss the books that we've read and what we're planning to read for the week.

Read and reviewed last week:
My Jane Austen Summer- loved it! very original and a contemporary setting! 8.5/10
Only Mr. Darcy Will Do- one of my absolute favorite P&P Variations!! 9.5/10
Agatha Raisin and the Vicious Vet- good cozy mystery and fun way to spend a few hours 3/5

Reviews this week:
The Trouble with Mr. Darcy- Tuesday
Miss Hildreth Wore Brown- Wednesday
Miranda's Big Mistake-Thursday

On my nightstand: still working on the same ones posted last week

  6. I love those covers on the Carnation series. The Agatha Raisin sounds interesting-in a maddening sort of way. I like stories with vets in them. I've posted my recent reads too. Have a good week.

  8. I have forbidden myself going into bookstores because I have no restraint. You had a good week. Hope this one is as productive.

  9. Your self-restraint at the bookstore inspires me, Staci :) I have the first Willig book on my Kindle and hope to read it this year.

  10. I think I will add My Jane Austin Summer to my list - I like the contemporay twist.

    Have a great week!

  11. The Agatha Raisin books sound like so much fun. Must try them one day. Right now I've got a self-enforced unofficial ban on book-buying going on. Probably won't last long, though. Hope you enjoy all your reading this week!

  12. I may be the only person in the reading world who doesn't read Jodi P. :<)

  13. I adore Jodi Picoult's work. I have a great long list of books to read. Being 'retired' you'd think I'd get to them. sigh.
    Thanks for visiting.
    Just got off a 4-day visit with my brother, and a two-day visit with grandkids. Whew.

  21. I like Lauren Willig's books - though I think I've only read the first two in the series and I need to get caught up. I find them to be nice, light reads. I hope you enjoy them too!
