Monday: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musing

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. It has finally found a permanent  home at Mailbox Monday with the following new administrators:

Leslie of Under My Apple Tree
Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit
Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach

I did not receive anything in my mailbox this past week. But I downloaded the following:


Hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of BooksWe discuss the books that we've read and what we're planning to read for the week. 

I finished reading the following:

26. The Skull Mantra by Eliot Pattison (Thriller)
25. A Deadly Waltz by Sophia Queen (Gothic Mystery)
24. The Headmaster's Wager by Vincent Lam (Literary Fiction)
23. The Rejected Suitor by Teresa McCarthy (Regency Romance) 

I am in the midst of reading:

I posted reviews of the following novels on my blog:

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about something related to reading/books each week…...

    I finished reading  The Skull Mantra by Eliot Pattison. I learnt so much about Tibetans. Their faith, their resolute way of life. All this in the midst of China denying them their land..... It is a thriller but goes so much beyond that.

What a Westmoreland Wants by Brenda Jackson sounds good. I'm also curious about The Skull Mantra. Fascinating stuff.

Hi Gautami,

Every time I have an empty mailbox week, I tell myself 'Fine! I'll feature one of the existing books I have had on my shelves since long before I began blogging' ... reality is, just like yourself, I succumb to loads of freebie downloads, which I don't really ever have any chance of reading!!

I love the sound of 'A Deadly Waltz' and 'The Seduction Of Emily', however I think my favourite has to be 'The Skull Mantra', this sounds right up my street.

Thanks for sharing and have a great week,

I have so many unread ebooks! It's hard to pass up on them when it's a great deal!
