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

I Thought You Were Dead- I bought this on after getting the suggestion from Diane@Bibliophile by the Sea. She's a great lover of audio books and I trust her opinions. I think this one sounds great!
The Man Who Loved Pride & Prejudice- I love this author's P&P variations and Sourcebooks ran a great sale on some of their titles. I had to buy this one for my Kindle!

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

Reviews last week:
What Happened to Hannah- I thought this was a captivating story...good read.

Bookish Thoughts:
Bossypants- loved this audio book narrated by Tina Fey..absolute fun!
The Diary of Mattie Spenser- great book about women and the frontier life
Emma- I listened to this from the British accent but it was hard to follow. Note to self: read Austen first, then listen to it!!

Books to be featured this week:
The Baker's Daughter- TLC Tour stop on Tuesday
Explosive Eighteen- audio version
Still Life- a favorite read of Margot's

In My Book Box:
A Moveable Feast- still reading for a group read-a-long
Bridge of Scarlet Leaves- author review request
Reservation Road- library book


  1. Sounds like you have some great books ahead of you! I feel like I say this all of the time but this IS the year that I'm going to read something by Austen. I've even downloaded a few books of hers onto my kindle. Now I just need to figure out which one that I should start with...any suggestions?

  2. I bet Bossypants is a good one! Just saw a British version of Emma on TV starring Gwn Paltrow!

  3. I've got I Thought You Were Dead in print so I'll be anxious to see what you think of it.

  4. Oh, you have some great looking books this week. I hope you enjoy Reservation Road.
