Mondays: Mailbox/What AM I reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. Brook of  TheBluestocking Guide  is hosting for the month of June.

I received two books in my mailbox, thanks to Hachette India! 

The Rome Prophecy by Jon Trace:

 A woman has been arrested on the streets of Rome. She's young. She's beautiful. She's covered in blood. And she claims to be on the run from a mighty power that centuries ago brought the eternal city to its knees. Ex-priest Tom Shaman teams up with a headstrong policewoman to unravel the mystery. But within Rome's churches and corridors of power, stealthy enemies are conspiring against them. And someone is re-enacting sinister legends from the city's bloody past...Loaded with action that rockets from gothic plazas through majestic cathedrals and into the vast catacombs lurking beneath the city, this electrifying thriller will dazzle fans of Dan Brown and Chris Kuzneski.
Murder in the Ashram by Kathleen McCaul 

Ruby Jones has moved to Delhi to pursue her dreams of becoming an international news journalist. But when the body of Stephen Newby, her flatmate and best friend, is pulled from the Yamuna River - and the mystery around his death becomes more and more mysterious - she puts her investigative instincts to good use as she tries to uncover who's responsible.
Ruby's questions take her deeper and deeper into the world of Indian policing - and into the heart of a yoga ashram. She discovers that the yoga world isn't always the calm, spiritual place advertised, but that beneath the breathing exercises and dog poses lies something sinister - something that she's certain points to dark, hidden secrets that could have huge repercussions for all involved if discovered . . .

I am currently reading The Nesting Dolls by Gail Bowen

Posted review of:

Before I go to sleep by S J Watson


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?

I can recall too many books. Recent one was The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly. After halfway through, I couldn't put it down. Before that Room by Emma Donoghue.

I'm curious about The Nesting Dolls...I've seen those Russian nesting dolls, and I'm imagining a mystery of some kind.

Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

I liked The Lincoln Lawyer also, but I don't necessarily stay up late to read, if I do it is usually because I have insomnia that night.
