Mailbox Monday - 10/20/14


 
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do).    

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists!

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books, has a permanent home now at Mailbox Monday.


 *******************
Every week Mailbox Monday will have a new linky posted for our Mailbox Monday links at Marcia's Mailbox Monday blog.

Here’s a shout out to the new administrators:

Leslie of Under My Apple Tree 
Vicki of I’d Rather Be at the Beach
Serena @ Savvy Verse And Wit 

THANKS to everyone for keeping Mailbox Monday alive. 

 ***************
I hope you had a good mailbox.  

There is a giveaway on my blog for TWO e-books - The Labryinth House if you want to stop by.

Books Completed Last Week:

THE WONDER OF ALL THINGS by Jason Mott



I wasn't that impressed with the book.  The writing is excellent, but the topic wasn't my favorite.  

Review is in the book's title.




AN UNSEEMINGLY WIFE by E. B. Moore


An interesting read, beautiful writing, unforgettable characters, but just a bit slow.  I enjoyed this book.  

Review will be up on October for a tour by the publisher.  Stop back.  It is on Goodreads at this time if you care to stop there.

********************

The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including all of 2014.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists. 

     


How was your reading week?
