Mondays: Mailbox/What am I reading?/Musing

First, I must wish all of you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012. May it be filled with everything that you have always wished for and more.

Personally, I wish to do more reading, write more and also achieve some milestones in my personal life. I seem to be in some kind of a plateau and I desire to climb the mountain. Hope 2012 fulfills my wishes.

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. Alyce  is hosting it on her at home with books blog for the month of January 2012.

I received only one book, thanks to the author:

All Her Father's Guns by James Warner: Cal Lyte, a gun-loving venture capitalist, is tired of paying alimony to his ex-wife Tabytha. Plotting to blackmail her and derail her campaign for Congress, he enlists the help of their daughter's boyfriend, British academic Reid Seyton, to unearth some Lyte family secrets. But the results turn out to be more than anyone bargained for, in an escalating cycle of revelations that will leave nobody's life the same.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.

I read three e-books:

1) Ryan's Return by Barbara Freethy
2) True North by Mary Force
3) A Scandalous Past by Ava Stone

And in the midst of reading:

1) All Her Father's Guns by James Warne

What is/are the first book(s) you’re reading for the new year?

1) All Her Father's Guns by James Warne
2) Wild Angel by Miriam Minger

Not bad, not bad!

Good way to start. I finished one book over the weekend and did my first review for the new year.

All the best for 2012.

I have absolutely no routine at the moment.
Everyone goes back to school/work tomorrow so I can get back into routine and find time to read again!

All the best for 2012!

Great to see people moving right along with their reading!

I'm reading a nonfiction book now, but there's plenty of fiction on the table too.

My week was slow too!

I haven't figured out what I'm reading next, but plan on making more time for challenge reads and accept less books for tours and reviews.

Anna said...

Looks like you're getting back in the swing of things reading-wise. Happy new year!!

Three e-books is a great start to the year! Hopefully it'll get you started up that mountain :)
