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.
January Host: A favorite blogger of mine-
I have a bad habit of checking out the Friend of the Library sale cart whenever I stop by my local library. It never fails that I bring home something with me. I think I hit pay dirt when I stopped on Thursday to return books. My husband just smiled as I asked for a couple of bucks just in case I found something I wanted!!
- Deep in the Valley- I'm aware of this author thanks to Kaye and Mary!
- Clouds of Witness- reading Jane's blog (Fleur Fisher Reads) has made me keen on reading Sayers. Thanks, Jane!
- The Widower- this one just caught my eye. Checked it out on Goodreads and it sounds like it could be promising.
- Casting Off- brand new paperback for .50 cents!! How could I go wrong? Plus, this one has been on my TBR list for a while. I love books about knitting even though I have no clue how to knit myself and added bonus the setting is Ireland!
We discuss the books that we've read
and what we're planning to read for the week.
Read and reviewed last week:
All the Flowers in Shanghai- not what I was hoping for.
Carrie Goes Off the Map- fun and easy to enjoy!
The Mercy (Book 3 in an Amish trilogy)- satisfying!
The Night Circus- the ending made me mad beyond belief and really messed up my overall enjoyment of the story.
Sizzling Sixteen (Stephanie Plum)-thank God for Lula, Grandma, and the hot Ranger, otherwise I would be done with this series!
Bookish Thoughts on tap for this week:
Books Can Be Deceiving- Wednesday (Book Club)
The Lost Wife-Thursday
Books just waiting for me:
The Night Sky- a memoir of sorts that I'm excited to read
A.B.C. Murders- book from my own shelf (can you believe it?)
The Arrivals- library book that I checked out because of fellow bloggers loving it!
