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:
The Btown Booksters had a fantastic meeting, this time around I procrastinated and started reading our book choice, Back Roads by Tawni O'Dell, only a few days before our meeting - eek!  Back Roads was really good but also really I needed a light read after this dark book.  I decided to read a silly romance (and this one was super-fun) called Face of Danger by Roxanne St. Claire.

This Week:
I really need to get through my library's my possible reads for the week:

  • Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok
  • The Twelfth Enchantment by David Liss
  • Sister Mischief by Laura Goode
  • The Oregon Experiment by Keith Scribner


Mailbox Monday is a touring meme where book bloggers share their bookish acquisitions from the week prior.  It is hosted this month by (one of my favorite book bloggers) Life in the Thumb.

This week I bought some great goodies!

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

Biting the Sun by Tanith Lee

Fly by Night by Frances Hardinge

And lastly, American Gods by Neil Gaiman


  1. I am not familar with these ones...will have to take a closer look. Happy Reading!

  6. I really liked The Handmaid's Tale. Happy reading!

  7. I loved The Handmaid's Tale! I have a copy of the Oregon Experiment (I found out the author works at the same university as my husband). I just can't stand the texture of the cover - I'll have to do something about that if I decide to read it.
