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

Cinder- I won the audio version of this book from Sheree@The Eclectic Reader

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

Reviews last week:
Bridge of Scarlet Leaves- a lovely book that touched me deeply! 

Bookish Thoughts:
Still Life- excellent mystery series and one I will keep reading

    1. The Lost Daughter caught my eye.

  16. Enjoy your new books, Staci. I'm curious about Lost Daughter.

  17. Wonderful Mailbox! Enjoy your new books!

    Here is my post!

  18. Can't wait to see what you think of Cinder. It's not the type of book I usually read, but I've heard such good things about it. Enjoy your new books!

  19. I have Cinder in print but think I want to listen instead. Enjoy Girl with Dragon Tattoo, stick with it through the first 100 pages, it gets awesome!

  20. Hi Staci,

    I am not sure that I would have the patience to get embroiled in a quartet of books, so I probably wouldn't be interested in 'Cinder'.

    'The Lost Daughter' does sound really good however, so that's another one for my reading list.

    I am currently reading an Edwardian murder/mystery 'The Lost Luggage Porter' by Andrew Martin.

    I shall be posting a review of 'A Dead Red Heart' by R.P. Dahlke during the course of the week.

    Reading is going very slowly at the moment, due to lack of available free time and I am getting seriously frustrated!

    Enjoy your books and the rest of your week


  21. I want to read Cinder! Enjoy your week of reading.

  22. I heard so many great things on Cinder, I can't wait to read it too!
    The Lost daughter sounds interesting too. Happy reading!

  23. Just checked out Cinder on Amazon. I want it. :)

  24. I won the audio of Cinder too! I actually forgot all about it! Need to move it to the car.
