Mailbox Monday & What Are You Reading

This is a weekly meme hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Join the fun and post what you got in your mailbox last week!

I got a few more this week. One for review, One contest win, and one buy that I couldnt' help myself with. It's all Ryan's fault too. He always mentions the friends of the library bookstore and we just happened to go to the library and I decided to take a peek inside...























  1. Perfect Chemistry - Simone Elkeles (the remainder of a contest win)
  2. The Castaways - Elin Hilderbrand (Review)
  3. Salem Falls - Jodi Picoult (Friends of the Library Bookstore)
____________________________________________________________________

It's Monday What are you reading this week? Hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books. This is a meme to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finished this week.

Books I finished last week:

The Executor - Jesse Kellerman
Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins Audiobook (review coming this week)

Currently Reading:

Paul is Undead - Alan Goldsher (blog tour this week)
Water For Elephants - Sara Gruen Audiobook


Books to Finish this Week:


Paul is Undead - Alan Goldsher
Hopefully I'll finish Water for Elephants too. I picked up Graceling a full cast audiobook at the Library and I can't wait to start that one.

I hope you enjoy The Castaways as much as I did- total escape reading.

You had a great week. Have another and enjoy all your new books.

I see several books I am wanting, like The Castaways...love that author. Also, The Executor. Read your review. I understand what you were thinking, since I've read his other three books. They're a different style that's hard to categorize. But enjoyable.

Thanks for visiting my blogs.

I read Catching Fire. I am eager to hear what you think about the audiobook. Have you ever read then listened to a book? How do you compare the experience?

Natalie W said...

Graceling and Water for Elephants are supposed to be fabulous! I hope you enjoy!

Have a fantastic reading week and if you get a chance, stop by: Monday Reading's at There's A Book

Kylie said...

I'll be interested to know what you think of Water for Elephants. It's one of those I've often looked at but never actually bought.

Christina T said...

I have never listened to a full cast audio but I bet Graceling would be perfect to listen to that way. I loved Catching Fire and Perfect Chemistry.

Have a great week!

My daughter keeps telling me I have to read the books by Suzanne Collins. She loves them but I just haven't gotten around to reading them yet! I am looking forward to your review and I am now following your blog!
Thank you for stopping by my Monday reading post!
