I'm joining in for Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are you Reading this week! Thanks to Mailbox Monday and The Book Date for hosting!
Mailbox MondayLast week I got 3 couple of great books in the mail. (BTW it rarely happens that I get physical books in the mail, so it was a big week for me!)
Pachinko by Min Jin Lee- I won from a giveaway on the blog The Book Club Cookbook I use the website for recipes for book club and I enjoy looking at it, so its an added bonus when I win a giveaway! Thank you Book Club Cookbook Ladies! I have had my eye on this book for awhile, so I am glad to be able to read it.
Between Me and You by Allison Winn Scotch- This is another giveaway I won from Chick Lit Central. The books sounds like one I will enjoy and I loved reading the author interview (here) I know I should probably play the lottery, two giveaway wins is unheard of for me. Thanks to the author and Kathleen Carter Communications for the book.
Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions by Mario Giordano- This book just looks fun! I have been using BookishFirst to sign up for books that I would like to read. So far the books I have received I have loved. This one just looks like pure Italian fun and a departure for books I normally read. I can't wait.
Its Monday What Are You Reading?
I'm currently reading and loving The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams. I mentioned this book a few weeks ago on Mailbox Monday. This week I haven't had a chance to read much but I love the characters in the book and I am not quite sure yet where it is going so it has me hooked. This will be a summer hit in July.
My current Audiobook is The Heavens May Fall by Allen Eskens. I surprisingly enjoyed reading the first book in the series, The Life We Bury (review here), and I have heard amazing things about the 4th book in the series, The Deep Dark Descending, so I skipped over book 2 (it had good reviews but not amazing) and I am very much enjoying book 3 in the series. The author does an amazing job with character development while keeping the reader interested and guessing in the mystery. This is a police procedural but I love it. Great narration in this audiobook too.
Next Up on Audiobook- When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
This one has been on my TBR list for awhile. Im looking forward to this non-fiction read!
I have 9 (nine) Feb/March Netgalley books that I need to read sooner than later. I am excited for all of them, but overwhelmed and mad at myself for requesting so many good ones!
Have a great week, everyone!
