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.
December Host: Let Them Read Books
The Odds by Stewart O'Nan- courtesy of NetGalley/Penguin. I have wanted to read this author after JoAnn, Diane, Margot (new convert) and Matt all wrote glowing reviews of his books. I will start with this one.
The Book of Lost Fragrances- courtesy of NetGalley/Atria Books. I'm very intrigued by the art of making perfume. I will be featuring this author and book on my blog in March.
We discuss the books that we've read
and what we're planning to read for the week.
Read and reviewed last week:
I didn't review a thing last week because my husband and I have been knee deep in home renovations. I barely had the strength to read at night when we finished for the day. Also, with Christmas I just didn't have the time to sit down at the computer and write reviews nor read very many blogs. I will rectify that this week because now we're at the easy part....painting!!!
Reviews for this week:
All the Flowers in Shanghai- TLC review Thursday
Carrie Goes Off the Map- Tuesday
The Mercy (Book #3 of The Rose Trilogy)- Wednesday
On my nightstand:
With most of my scheduled review books done, I feel free!!! So this week I'm going to let my mood dictate what I will read. Here's the list that I will be picking from:
- The Arrivals (Mary@Bookfan and Les@Lesley's Book Nook inspired me to get this from my library)
- The Lost Wife (Kaye@Pudgy Penguin and Jill@Rhapsody in Books loved this one so I knew I just had to read it.. From my library)
- Sizzling Sixteen (because I feel like I must continue with this series)
- The Night Circus (read so many differing thoughts on this one, had to get it for myself to decide)
- The Train of Small Mercies (loved Ti's review of this one had to get it.)
- Reservation Road (read Schwartz's follow up to this one..had to read it)
- Books Can Be Deceiving (cozy mystery that is coupled with a library..how could I resist?)
