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.

Yes, I've been naughty...again. Shouldn't really come as any surprise to my friends that I've been browsing shopping at NetGalley. I couldn't resist The Glass Wives and I love Bohjalian's work so requesting The Light in the Ruins was a total no-brainer. Plus, I've been feeling pretty good about working my way through my Kindle this month, so I used that success to justify adding more.  Hey, I never said that it made sense!!

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:
Scarlet (audio version) Lunar Chronicles #2- LOVED IT!!!!!!!!
A Perfect Proposal- charming Brit Chick Lit

Bookish Thoughts to share this week:
In the Pleasure Groove (audio) by John Taylor of Duran Duran
What She Wants by Sheila Roberts
Wind-Up Bird Chronicles- brief update on Book One

April Kindle Book Box:
I'm coming into the home stretch with only one book left to read which I'm currently working on....Cover of Snow. Overall, I am having a great time reading my Kindle books and deleting them as I go!!


  1. bahaha I like your thinking!! I've got my fingers crossed for Scarlett next week. Pretty Cover on The Glass Wives, I'll have to check what it's about lol or I could just say "pretty cover" and move on, but will I ... NO.
    Happy reading dear friend :)

  2. You are quite disciplined to get through your Kindle book stack so quickly! Enjoy your new books.

  3. Can't wait for your reviews this week! And I mention you and Sheree in my post that's live at midnight tonight! :)

  4. The Light in the Ruins is on my wish list.

  5. Both are books I want to read. I'll be waiting to hear your thoughts!

  6. I've only read one of Bohjalian's books but I loved it, so I don't blame you for grabbing that one.

  7. It is hard to resist...I requested Glass Wives also! I have an ARC of Light in the ruins. I'm preferring the kindle reading lately due to a shoulder problem I am having. Much lighter to hold the kindle! You're doing great getting through the kindle books!

  8. Good for you for getting through those Kindle books :) I requested the new Bohjalian as well and I can't wait to read it!

    Have a fantastic week :)

  9. Since you've been doing so well on your Kindle goal, you deserve to request more books! Enjoy whatever you read this week.

  10. Lights in the ruins looks good, happy reading :)

  11. I'd like to see your thoughts on The Glass Wives. New one for me.

  12. I can't wait to read The Light in the Ruins. Glad you've been having success getting through the kindle review books. I've been doing the same lately :)

  13. I can't believe you are deleting the books as you go!!!

  14. Can't wait to hear how you're doing with Murakami... I was so tempted by that readalong!

  15. Bohjalian is a hit-or-miss author for me, so I'll await your review before I snag his latest.

  16. I'm actually finding a few minutes to comment. I LOVE that we can stay connected via instagram. When did live get so busy? HA

    Have a wonderful week, hoping for warmer weather. It's been a long winter.

  17. You are doing SO WELL with your NetGalley reads...I'm impressed! I'm hoping to squeeze one more in but I have a review book for a tour that I really should finish first :) I hope you have a great week of reading Staci!

  18. The Light in the Ruins looks fantastic. Looking forward to your thoughts!

  19. looks like you'll be having another "kindle clean-up" month very soon. Both books look really good.
