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.

January Host: A favorite blogger of mine- 


A Weekend With Mr. Darcy- I purchased this one for 1.99 for my Kindle. I squealed with delight when I saw the price and after reading and loving Dreaming of Mr. Darcy, I knew I had to get this one.
Nadia Knows Best- I'm working very hard not to go overboard with review books ( I decided on no more than 20 for the year. I can only get 6 more before I'm done), but when this one was offered by Sourcebooks/NetGalley I had to get it. I adore this author!! Can't wait.
--------------------------------------------------------------

We discuss the books that we've read 
and what we're planning to read for the week.

Read and reviewed last week:
Books Can Be Deceiving- great cozy..recommend.
The Lost Wife- this one wounded me...but it's a MUST read.

Bookish Thoughts for this week:
Secrets by Freya North
A.B.C. Murders by Agatha Christie

Sitting on my nightstand:
Backseat Saints- my shelves
Irish Lady- Sourcebooks review copy

    I hope to someday read Jill Mansell...I see her books everywhere, and I know that when that happens, I could be discovering my next favorite author.

  10. If you read Backseat Saints, listen to the MMBC interview with the author! :) I missed a few themes in the book, not realizing the research done for this book. The author is fun to listen to.

  11. Your thoughts on The Lost Wife were very emotional ... onto the wishlist it goes. I think I'll be checking out Nadia Knows Best too ... although I was trying to cut down on review books LOL.

    I'm amazed you're only allowed 6 more books ... it's only January hahaha
    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  12. Mansell is an author I really must try!

    ReplyDelete
  13. So jealous you got the new Mansell, but alas, I'm still not into reading ebooks.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm currently reading Dreaming of Mr Darcy. I'm also trying notto go overboard with review copies!

  15. I'm jealous about the new Mansell book, too. Can't wait to hear what you think of it. I thought A Weekend With Mr. Darcy was fun. Enjoy!

  16. Jill Mansell . . . *sigh* I just love her and will have to search out this one. I just finished her Perfect Timing and loved it. Have a wonderful week, Staci, and happy reading. My MM is here

    2. A Sony Reader! I like the Reader so far, though the selection in their store seems pretty limited, which is a bummer.

      (Love the new embedded comments with Blogger!)

  19. I've been wanting to read Jill Mansell for a while, but although I have one of her books on my shelf I just can't get myself to read it. I really need to soon!

  20. The thing I like about NetGalleys is that I don't have to finish them/like them/review them. If someone mails me a book I feel bad about not reviewing it, even if things get crazy; with a NetGalley, not so much so.

  21. A new Mansell! The Darcy book looks cute too. I will have to see if it is still on sale. Only 6 more review books for the year!? I envy your will power!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Those look like fun! I haven't read a Mansell book in a while, I should again sometime soon.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh goodness, I got so excited to see Jill's book that I went over and requested it. I adore her books! Happy reading!

  27. When I saw the ratings my Goodreads friends gave Weekend with Mr. Darcy I bought it too!
    This is the year I will read a Jill Mansell novel :)

  28. I devoured Agatha Christie as a teen but I haven't read any in almost 25 years, I think. It must be time to big up the dear old gal again!
