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, friends, I have been bad. I wish I could come up with a clever excuse for adding more NetGalley books to my list, but I'm all out. I have no restraint and click impulsively!!


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 Last Camellia- another well-written story from Jio
The Great Gatsby- great narrator but the story was just okay for me.
It Had to Be You- probably my favorite Shalvis book to date!

Bookish Thoughts to share this week:
The Virgin Cure- TLC Tour book

Hubby and I are up north at the camper so I will be absent from commenting on blogs for a little while. Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July (for all my friends here in the States) and I will catch up when we return home!


  1. I think I'd like the bookstory - the setting and theme looks like one we'd all like as book bloggers :)

  2. Have a nice vacation. Making a note of The Birth House. I think I'd like to read this one.

  3. Naughty, naughty!! LOL!! I have been just as bad!! LOL!!!

  4. I saw these books on NetGalley too and I'm trying so hard to resist! Enjoy your vacation.

  5. I'm really interested in The Bookstore. Of course I am! Books!! Can't wait to hear what you think of it.

    Have a great week!

  6. I can't wait for your thoughts on the Colin Firth book. I've very curious about that one! Happy reading!

  7. I was unable to resist Finding Colin Firth :) Can't wait to read it.

  8. No one I know could resist a book with this title: Finding Colin Firth

    :) Happy reading

  9. Enjoy your new books and your time away!

  10. I hope that you have a wonderful 4th of July as well! It looks like you've got some good reading ahead of you. Don't worry because in August you can catch up with all of these good books that you have been requesting. It's going to be fun :)

  11. Have a great time camping. Hope you get lots of reading time! As a compulsive book person, I understand your need to click "requesst"!

  12. I have no will power when it comes to NetGalley either. I got a couple of those same books. =) Happy 4th!

  13. I really, really want to find Colin Firth!!

  14. It's holidays ... holidays = presents, it's a Happy Independence Day present, it's a I'm-the proud-mama-of-a-graduate present, son-off-to-college-cheer-myself-up pressie ... want me to keep going?? I want The Bookstore just cause I like the cover, don't even know what it's about lol. I'm going to check out both those Amy McKay titles ... see no will power!!

    Happy 4th July and have a fun, relaxing camping trip.

  15. The Bookstore looks good! I've been trying really hard to stay away from NetGalley lately, but you are tempting me. Have a great trip :-)

  16. NetGalley is addicting. I'm trying to stay away from the site for the time being. I can be strong. Hopefully. Maybe.

    I hope you are enjoying your vacation!

  17. yes, I think those books are right up your alley. Have a nice trip.

  18. Lol. I had to laugh since I just finished telling you to read The Birth House and here it is. I think you'll really like it. It's very different from Virgin Cure but so good.
