Mondays: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. This month it is hosted by Anna of Diary of an Eccentric.

I received one book, thanks to the publicist.

The Book Of Lost Fragrances by M.J. RoseJac L'Etoile has always been haunted by the past, her memories infused with the exotic scents that she grew up surrounded by as the heir to a storied French perfume company. In order to flee the pain of those remembrances--and of her mother's suicide--she moved to America. Now, fourteen years later she and her brother have inherited the company along with it's financial problems. But when Robbie hints at an earth-shattering discovery in the family archives and then suddenly goes missing--leaving a dead body in his wake--Jac is plunged into a world she thought she'd left behind.

Back in Paris to investigate her brother's disappearance, Jac becomes haunted by the legend the House of L'Etoile has been espousing since 1799. Is there a scent that can unlock the mystery of reincarnation - or is it just another dream infused perfume?

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

Finally I finished reading: 

The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly

What book do you wish you were reading right now? Where would you take it to, if you could go anywhere to read for a while?

My reading is VERY slow right now. I wish I could just about pick any book and read it at one go. The time and place are irrelevant in a massive reading slump.

Hi Gautami-
Thanks for visiting me last week. I'm glad to see you finished that book. Some do read slower than others. That would be frustrating to get stuck on just one. Maybe my reading several at a time helps.

The Book of Lots Fragrances sounds interesting.
I got a chuckle from your 'watch this space' comment! :-)
Have a good week.
