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.

I was so excited to find an email from the publishers of Sarah Jio's latest release, The Last Camellia, offering a NetGalley issue of this book. I've been pretty blessed to be able to review her books before their release dates. She continues to amaze me with her writing prowess and her stories draw me in immediately!! I can't wait to get to this one!!

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

Read and talked about last week:
The Comfort of Lies- really enjoyed this one from Randy Susan Meyers
Unrivaled- this was a sweet book with a pretty cover. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

Bookish Thoughts this week:
A Perfect Proposal 
Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) audio version

April Kindle Box:
I keep plugging along with my Kindle reads. I do admit to reading a "smut" book last week. But in my defense the library only gave me 2 weeks to get it done and I never expected to get it quite so fast!! I've finished to date: The Comfort of Lies, Unrivaled, Heart Like Mine, A Perfect Proposal, and right now I'm reading What She Wants. 


  1. Nice reading. hge Sarah Jio boos cover looks awesome. Hope you enjoy it.

  2. Can't wait for your thoughts on Scarlet, hope it's up there with Cinder? Do tell, name of 'smut' book please lol. Is The Best of Us next in line when you're done with What She Wants?
    Have a wonderful week and happy reading :)

  3. Can't wait to hear about the new Sarah Jio novel!

  4. That cover is stunning - hope the story is a winner.

  5. I'm green with envy over the Sarah Jio book! I know you'll enjoy that one!

    When I borrow books on Kindle from my libebary, they only allow you to have them for 1 week! That is crazy, right?! So I don't do it often.

  6. You're made quite a dent in your Kindle tbr pile this month!

  7. Thats' a lot of reading done! have a good week.

  8. I have just started a book that was banned awhile ago "Tobacco Road" -- really hard time reading it, but I am plugging along :)

  9. Only one book?! Thanks for sharing this with me, I have read all of Jio's books and can't wait to read this one!! Enjoy!!

  10. LOL, hope you enjoyed your smut book ;) Have a great week of reading!

  11. Jealous! I'm looking forward to your review of The Last Camellia.

  12. Everyone tells me Jio's books are good. I hope you enjoy it.

  13. I wouldn't mind reading The Last Camelia. I have a couple of hers on audio that I must get to soon. Enjoy!

  14. Oh, I bet The Last Camellia is excellent!

  15. I am envious that you will be reading the wonderful Sarah Jio's book early. I just brought home Scarlet from the library (print). Look forward to your thoughts. Do tell the title of the smut book ;o). I am reading one that I swore I'd never read.

  16. I keep saying I need to read this author but then it doesn't happen. Too many good books on my TBR list!!!

  17. Sarah Jio always scores the best covers! So comforting looking. I need to read the book I have by her . . .

  18. sounds like another good one :)

  19. I still need to read something of Sarah Jio's! I love the cover art for this new one!

  20. Jio is another author I need to try. And everyone needs a smut book every now and then, lol!
