Mailbox Monday and It's Monday....What are you reading?

~Mailbox Monday~ 
is hosted by Rose City Reader (January Host)

We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week.

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 was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

  1. I really enjoyed the girl on legare street. Happy reading.

  2. Lots of great books you have there! I've been curious about The Memory Place and will be eager to read your review.

    Have a great week, Bonnie!

  3. I loved RESCUE!!!! All these titles look good to me, will be following you from now on!


  4. I enjoyed Letter to My Daughter...I am wishing for The Girl on Legare Street, as I've read and loved several other Karen White books.

    Have a great week.


  5. I really want to read Unbroken soon. My DH loved it. I have Major Pettigrew on my iPod but haven't listened yet. The author is scheduled to be at the indie near me on Thursday. I hope the storm doesn't cause her to cancel! Have a good week, Bonnie.

  6. I want to read all 3 that are on your nightstand. I download the Apothecary for free on my Kindle. Enjoy!!

  7. I love Karen Whites books. Have a great week reading!

  8. I have heard Letter To My Daughter is a good one! Enjoy your week :)

  9. The covers of the first three are all awesome! I hope you like Unbroken as much as I did, I thought it was fabulous and am keeping it in my permanent book collection.

  10. Looks like a lot of good books Bonnie. I have at the Red Thread. I'm glad to hear it's such a beautiful novel.

    I've been thinking of downloading Unbroken to my Kindle. I just may yet.
