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.

February Host is: Metroreader

Bleak House- purchased for myself so that I could join the RAL hosted by Wallace @ Unputdownables.
Left Neglected- found this for 6.00 on the sale table...had to buy it!
We discuss the books that we've read 
and what we're planning to read for the week.

Reviews last week: 
The Baker's Daughter- absolutely wonderful book..will be on my top reads list.

Bookish Thoughts:
Explosive Eighteeen (audio) - a fun way to enjoy this series.

Books that I will talking about this week:
Bridge of Scarlet Leaves- Monday
Still Life- Wednesday
Reservation Road- Thursday

In My Book Box:
Firefly Lane
On Chesil Beach


  1. I would have grabbed Left Neglected for 6 bucks too. I hope you have a great week in books!

  2. I bought Bleak House a year ago but haven't read it. I don't know if I can do a RAL so soon after W&P. I'll take a look at it.
    I'll bet Left Neglected is good. I loved Still Alice.

  3. I've heard really good things about Left Neglected. Have a great reading week!

  4. All your books look amazing. Bleak House and The Bakers Daughter head my list!

  5. Haven't read one of Lisa Genova's yet but I've heard her writings good. Looking forward to your reviews this week, I'm off to see what I missed on your blog last week :)
    Happy reading & have a great week Staci!!

  6. I have never read Bleak House, but I think that's because I was put off of all Dickens after Tale of Two Cities. I hope you enjoy your books.

  7. Yes! Bleak House! So happy you plan to join in. Left neglected is on my shelf -- must get to it.

  8. I wish I had time to read a classic like Bleak House. Will look forward to your review!

  9. Good luck with Bleak House. If you get bogged down, a combination read/listen may help... it did for me :-)

  10. I think you will like Left Neglected. Have you read Still Alice? Both fantastic reads, I enjoy learning something while I read so they worked for me.

    Have a great week!

  11. Oh, Left Neglected! I still haven't read it but can't wait too, Still Alice is one of my favorite books! Happy reading!

  12. Left Neglected is a wonderful book Ms Genova is a talented writer. I have Still Alice TBR and it will be interesting to compare the two. Good luck with Bleak House!

  13. Left Neglected is very good! I really enjoyed it! Great deal! Happy reading!

  14. I just found your blog and look forward to reading your posts. I'm a huge fiction and audiobook fan and am always on the lookout for new books.

    My "Monday" post.

    1. Left Neglected sounds good.

  15. I read the synopsis of Scarlet Leaves and it sounds fantastic - can't wait to see what you think. Have a fun week and happy reading.

  16. The Genova book looks good :) Enjoy!

  17. I'm going to read Bleak House one of these days. Not sure when, but I will. Hope you have a great week.

  18. I wish I was motivated to read Bleak House too! Have a great reading week!

  19. Left Neglected is fabulous! I gave it and Still Alice perfect 5/5 ratings. I can't wait for her next book (Love Anthony) to be published. This author can't write fast enough!

  20. I bought Bleak House too. The 99 cent version on my Kindle didn't feel right. I guess I needed the paper for an old book like that. I'm looking forward to your impressions on Still Life.

  21. I really want to start reading those Evanovich books! Everyone I know who has read them absolutely loves the series.

    Here's what I'm reading!

  22. I loved Left Neglected - I hope you like it too!

  23. The Baker's Daughter is waiting on my shelf to be read next! I'm so glad you liked it.

  24. Loved Left Neglected hope you enjoy it, Still Alice is still my favourite. Firefly Lane I also really enjoyed.

  25. I have had Left Neglected on my shelf for ages. I really need to make some time to read it.

  26. You're a brave woman. I haven't read Dickens since high school and haven't been courageous enough to try. LOL
