Mondays: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. This month it is hosted by Martha of Reviews By Martha's Bookshelf

I received the following, thanks to the authors/publicists:

Perla by Carolina De RobertisPerla Correa grew up a privileged only child in Buenos Aires, with a cold, polished mother and a straitlaced naval officer father, whose profession she learned early on not to disclose in a country still reeling from the abuses perpetrated by the deposed military dictatorship. Perla understands that her parents were on the wrong side of the conflict, but her love for her papá is unconditional. But when Perla is startled by an uninvited visitor, she begins a journey that will force her to confront the unease she has suppressed all her life, and to make a wrenching decision about who she is, and who she will become.
The Accused by John GrishamTheo Boone might only be thirteen, but he's already uncovered key evidence in a groundbreaking murder trial and discovered the truth behind his best friend's abduction. Now with the latest unfolding of events in Strattenburg, Theo will face his biggest challenge yet.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey

I am in the midst of reading:
Calico Joe by John Grisham
The Good Daughter by Diane Chamberlain


I finished reading: (Mostly Trash!!)
The Morning After by Sally Clements
The Texan's Bride by Geralyn Dawson
The Marriage Bargain by Sandra Edwards
Shameless by Cheryl Douglas
Intentions of the Earl by Rose Gordon


I plan to read:
Love Thy Neighbor by Mark Gilleo

What do you do with the book before you start reading it?


I read the back cover. That's about
 it!

I hope I get to Perla as it sounds intriguing. I also like to see what you think of The Good Father.

Sadness about the "mostly trash!" part~ hopefully Perla can make up for it!
