It's Monday! What Are You Reading? & Mailbox Monday

Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  We share books that we've read over the past week and those we hope to read this week.

Last Week: 
Last week I was apparently in the mood for some Regency-era novels and abandoned my original reading plans. 
This Week:
My library stack is climbing to epic proportions...must. read. library books.  So, here's my plan:

Mailbox Monday is a touring meme where book bloggers share their bookish acquisitions from the week prior.  It is hosted this month by Bluestocking.

This week I acquired one ARC book The Devil All the Time by Donald Ray Pollock

What a cover!

I also purchased an old childhood favorite of mine (it's not YA but rather, historical fiction) The Child from the Sea by Elizabeth Goudge.


  1. I have yet to read a Georgette Heyer novel but have it on my bucket list of authors to read. Maybe The Grand Sophy is one to start with? The Child From The Sea sounds good also!

  2. The cover of The Devil All the Time is intriguing. Hope it's a good read!

  3. World War Z is one of my favorites. Hope you enjoy it.

  4. @ Beth - this was my first Heyer novel and while some plot points were obvious it was quite a fun read and the main character is wonderful!

    @ Mary - I totally agree and I hope so too!

    @ Heather - I'm really looking forward to reading it :)

  5. World War Z sounds interesting.

  6. That older book looks familiar. Did I read that years ago? Maybe. Hope you like SILENT IN THE GRAVE. Love Deanna Raybourn's series.

  7. I want to read Georgette Hayer too.... sounds like a good week!

  8. Oh, how I love The Grand Sophy, or indeed any Heyer Regency novel. I found her by accident, and I'm so glad I did. I have several of her books on my TBR list, and I can't wait to get to them!

    I just finished Shadowed Summer (Saundra Mitchell) and loved every second of it. Last night I started Marcus Zusak's Getting the Girl, but my Best Friend and I got caught up watching "Farscape" on Netflix, so I didn't get too far in.

    Hope you enjoy your reading!
