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:
Despite taking part of a read-a-thon, I really didn't get as much reading accomplished as I'd like.  If I do another read-a-thon, I need to make sure that I'm in a spot where taking a brief respite from my life is do-able.  Last week, it really wasn't...hence my lackluster results.  Anyways, I read:
This Week:
I checked out some more fantastic books from the library and can't wait to get started on them.  Hopefully I'll finish:

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 bunch of ARCs (love it when that happens)!

From Netgalley:

The Man in the Rockefeller Suit by Mark Seal

White Woman on the Green Bicycle by Monique Roffey

Goodreads Giveaway courtesy of Algonquin Books:

When She Woke by Hillary Jordan (already read and loved this one!  My review)


  1. Looking forward to reviews of the first book. I remember when that was in the news!

  2. I have both The Cypress House and The White Woman on the Green Bicycle in my NetGalley queue to read.

    I recently read Turn of Mind. I liked it alright.

    I hope you enjoy all your great reads!

  3. I think I'll tackle anyone I come across with The Last Werewolf in their hands.

    I'm so anxious to read it!

  4. THE LAST WEREWOLF is one hot commodity! Can't believe you were able to get it from the library! I read LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS recently and really, really liked it. Definitely a favorite of the year. Hope you enjoy reading all your books!

  5. Well, I just added a bunch of books to my wish list!!! Thanks for listing some great books. Too bad I have my reading planned out for the next month as I'm participating in two challenges, but hopefully after that I can have some free time, reading what I want.

  6. I am looking forward to reading When She Woke. Have a wonderful week and enjoy your reading.
    My Monday:

  7. Nice diverse mailbox! Have a wonderful week and enjoy your new reads!

  8. These titles look fascinating....hope you have a great week.


  9. I never get as much read as I plan to on read a thons...

    When She Woke looks pretty good!

  10. When She Woke definitely looks like a good one!
