Mondays: Mailbox/What Are You 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 one book, unsolicited, in my mailbox, thanks to Hachette India! 

The Abduction by John Grisham:

Theodore Boone is back in a new adventure, and the stakes are higher than ever. When his best friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone-who knows April better than anyone-has answers. As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it's up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April. Filled with the page-turning suspense that made John Grisham a #1 international bestseller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone's trials and triumphs will keep readers guessing until the very end.

I am currently reading Other Eyes by Barbara D'Amato

I am SO behind in my reviews! Sometimes I feel why should pressure myself to write reviews!

Do you like movies made from books? Which ones do you think have been done well — kept mostly to the plot of the book, etc?

I prefer to read books. I do like the Harry Potter movies though. Both are good in their own ways. I must mention here that I don't like Jane Austen novels but I can watch the movies. Strange, isn't it?

Didn't know about the new John Grisham Abduction. I really want to read it. Always amazed and frightened by how many people just up and disappear. I still remember...

I've never really read any John Grisham. I've obviously heard good things, though!

Yvonne said...

I so identify with you about the reviews. I'm way behind and I'm putting way too much pressure on myself to get them done. I thought this was supposed to be fun. Have a great Monday!

My post is here

I've only read one Grisham book, The Painted House, but none of his legal thrillers. Enjoy your new book!

I haven't heard anything about the Theodore Boone books, so I'll be interested in what you think.

My husband bought this not knowing it was for young readers. I'll be interested in what he - and you- think!

I didn't know about this Grisham book; thanks for sharing! Happy reading!

Kay said...

That's a new to me Grisham. I haven't read any of his in a long time. He kind of lost me after a while. Enjoy your book!

Jennifer said...

I have not read a Grisham in quite awhile, I will look into this one. Enjoy your books and your week.

I haven't seen a review on John Grisham since I started blogging, I loved one of his books years ago.

I am considering giving up a day of blogging so I can read more.

I keep trying to read Jane Austen but I can't seem to get very far but love movies based on her books. I hope you enjoy the new Grisham book!

I hope you enjoy your books. I finally posted my mailbox today. It's been awhile.

I am so far behind in my Google Reader, I just marked everything read and am starting fresh. I sure hope I didn't miss any good stuff!
