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.
Hosted this month by

A Pug's Tale- review copy from Penguin Group
Catriona- review copy from Sourcebooks- I'm not wild about that cover but the story sounds good.
Megan's Way- review copy from author Melissa Foster

Hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of Books
We discuss the books that we've read and what we're planning to read for the week.

Read and reviewed last week:
The Violets of March- loved it!! You should read it!
The Gin Closet- beautiful writing but dark story
The Art of Forgetting- I loved Marissa...great characterization!

Reviews for this week:
The Apothecary's Daughter- Tuesday
Nerd Do Well- Wednesday Guest Blogger my son Marc (TLC Tour Book)
The Girl Who Would Speak for the Dead- Friday
Six Sentence Saturday- Love On Assignment

On my nightstand:


  1. A Pug's Tale looks and sounds adorable! Enjoy!

  2. I've come across a few Sourcebooks covers that did not do the book justice. It is a shame, 'cause I a sure there are many, like me, that are quick to judge it and not pick it up.

    Have a great week!

  3. And if Jo Nesbo is hidden at your house, why do you need ANY books on your nightstand? ha ha!

  4. As usual, you have a wonderful collection. I can't remember if you've read Legacy (Jeanette Baker), but it was quite good, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of Catriona. Happy reading!

  5. I'm drawn to that cover of a Pug's Tale, dog lover that I am! Hope you enjoy all your books!

  6. Love the pugs :)

  7. A Pug's Tale - sounds quirky and nice!

  8. The Violets of March is moving up on my tbr list!

  9. Can't wait to hear about "meagan's way" :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  10. Enjoy your books :D
    I do wonder what that dog book is about

  11. Looks like you had a great week and have some really interesting titles to choose from this week. Hope is a enjoyable one.

  12. I'm just starting The Art of Forgetting. I hope I like it too! Megan's Way is another I'll be reading. I am going to read Violets of March one of these days just cause you loved it so much!

  13. Cascom Mountain books looks like my kind of book :).

    I really like the format for this post.

    Hope you are enjoying summer. How is your Lily?

  14. meagan's way looks very appealingand I have the apothecary's daughter on my kindle. I'll watch for that review.

  15. I read your post but I got completely distracted when I saw that you named your Kindle Mr. Darcy. Hilarious, and very telling!

  16. A Pug's Tale is cute and the characters are great. Enjoy!

  18. Ooh A Pug's Tale, hope it's as adorable as it looks. Have a great week and happy reading :)

  19. A pug's tale looks cute! I'm tempted to get this one (and Pug's Hill) just because the Man here just loves pug, though it would be me who would read it lol. Happy reading! :)

  20. I have Catriona on my shelves as well. I'm looking forward to reading this one as it sounds really interesting. Can't wait to hear your thoughts as always :)
