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:
I tried to play catch-up with all of my library books (it always seems that when my holds come through they all come at once)!  So, I read:

This Week:
I want to finish up with my library reads and get to reading my overflowing shelf of ARCs that I've long neglected! Aaaand...since I'm participating in Once Upon a Read-a-thon this week I think my reading goals are completely do-able.

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

This week I received a slew of ARCs (again, when it rains, it pours)!

From NetGalley:

The Legacy by Katherine Webb

The Magician King by Lev Grossman (super excited about this one since I really enjoyed the first book in this series)

From publishers:

The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma...courtesy of Simon & Schuster's Atria imprint (hardcover, not an ARC)

(don't you just love the cover??)
Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto...courtesy of Crown Publishing

  3. I have had A Language of Flowers on my TBR list for a while, it looks like a great book. The Last Letter from your Lover also looks good.

  11. Great mailbox! I didn't realize that the sequel to The Magicians was out. I'll definitely be adding that one to my list. Before Ever After also looks really good.
