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:

  • Habibi by Craig Thompson
  • The Poison Throne by Celine Kiernan
  • The Crowded Shadows by Celine Kiernan
  • The Rebel Prince by Celine Kiernan
This Week:
  •  Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
  • The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
  • The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury (love me some Bradbury!)


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

This past week I only received one treat in the mail!
The Bright and Distant Shores by Dominic Smith
"Smith's impressive third novel (after The Beautiful Miscellaneous) is an absorbing exploration of culture, tradition, and renewal...Smith expertly combines well-drawn characters with a complex narrative that moves smoothly to the dawn of a new century." -- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review and "Pick of the Week"

Can't wait to read it!


  1. The Halloween Tree is a great pick for this month. I received Bright and Distant Shores this week too, it looks really interesting.

  2. Bright And Distant Shores sounds interesting. Enjoy!

  3. The Sky Is Everywhere is another book I really want to get around to reading soon. Hopefully I will! Happy Reading!

    My Monday list:

  4. I love that cover for The Halloween Tree. I haven't read that one. Thanks for the recommendation!

  5. I haven't read Bradbury since high school. I was born and raised in the same town as him. I should really revisit his books.

  6. OH MY GOODNESS YOU WILL LOVE DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE! THAT IS ALL. IT IS AMAZING. One of my favorite of the year, hands down.

    I actually thought about tweeting you specifically and telling you to GET IT!!!! Just earlier today, actually. Great minds think alike, so so often.


  7. I have been seeing Daughter of Smoke and Bone all over today - am definitely going to have to check it out.

    Stop by my It's Monday post if you get a chance.

  8. The Halloween Tree and Bright and Distant Shores are the two which intrigue me.
