Mailbox Monday!

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! 
(I don't see an actual picture to use for mailbox Monday but this squirrel on the webpage seemed appropriate for how much snow parts of the United States have)

Mailbox Monday-

I was so excited to get The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams in the mail this week.  I participate in the BookPerk Page Turners group and was sent this book.  It comes out in July 2018 and I am so excited to have my hands on an actual copy already! I hope to read it and review it in early Feb.


It's Monday What Are YOU Reading?

I am currently listening to the Audiobook Born A Crime by Trevor Noah-  I absolutely LOVE it.  Its made me think and its also made my cry laughing!  I'm about 50% through and my favorite part so far is the chapter about The Outhouse and how he chose to use the bathroom else where........it leads to smells and his family thought they had been cursed.  
I also love hearing him speak the many languages spoken in South Africa that he learned and used growing up.  I see why this has been on everyone's lists of books they enjoyed.

I am also reading Just Between Us by Rebecca Drake.  This is a NetGalley Arc that has be guessing but it also is similar to Big Little Lies.  I LOVED Big Little Lies so I am hoping by the end of this book I will have seen the differences in the books and enjoyed both.  I like the 4 different view points of suburban moms presented so far!


In other book news......I am looking forward to Book Club tonight at my house....we will be discussing  The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Tara Jenkins Reid.  I will have my full review up after Book Club since I alway get good insight from the discussion.  I really liked the book!  


Happy Reading this Week to all!

  5. I read Just Between Us last week. Haven't read Big Little Lies yet so I can't compare. Haven't read TJR's newest but I've enjoyed all of her previous novels. Hope you had a good discussion. Have a good week!
