Monday, Monday! What Are You Reading?


Thanks to all our Mailbox Monday hosts!  Julie at Knitting and Sundries is hosting this month, and thanks to Sheila at Book Journey as well for her Mailbox hosting!

This was a good week, check it out!




Have you read any of these? If so, which one should I start with?

From My Reader's Block, I won a giveaway for the following books:
From Raging Bibliomania, Heather was kind enough to send to me:
  • Room, by Emma Donoghue
  • Stash, by David Klein
From The Literary Feline, I received:
And the rest I received from Paperbackswap, purchased at my local independent bookstore, The BookMark in Atlantic Beach, Florida, or purchased at a church sale yesterday:
Happy Reading!

  1. I've had a great time with Paula Marantz Cohen's other books (see here for Jane Austen in Boca), but this new one is different. Her other books are all romances with literary themes, not mysteries. So who knows.

  7. I've got so much to comment about your books. First, don't you just love Paperback Book Swap? It's just one of the best places ever. Second, you've got some great books. I really liked Maisie Dobbs and anything Agatha Christie. And I loved Summer at Tiffany, it was one my favorites of the year. Finally, I really want to read Room and What Alive Knew.

    What a great haul you got this week. Happy Reading.

  8. Glad you got the books! What Alice Knew is on my TBR list...but I don't know when I'm going to get to it. Thanks for stopping by my Monday.

  9. My vote would be to start with 'Room' - for the newness of it. But the old Daphne du Mauriers and Agatha Christies are always good . . . and H.G. Wells is someone I'd like to read more of too.

    Hmmm decisions decisions . . .

  10. Oh my gosh, you are so lucky to have received all of these books! Enjoy!

  11. Ooooh! I love that pile!

    I've just finished Room which is amazing and read quickly so that would be my recommendation.

  12. The awesome Heather sent me some books too. I say start with Room!

  13. Oh my goodness - look at all of that great loot! I LOVED Room when I read it a couple of weeks ago! It's one of those books you want to talk about with everyone. I also remember really liked the Women's Guide to Hunting and Fishing when I read it back in college. Happy reading!

  14. I may be biased because I love Agatha Christie but I definitely think that you should read And Then There Were None first!! It is one of my favorites by this author. Great haul of books :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. WOW!!!!!!! I've been wanting to read Room--although I am interested in many other of these books as well. Excellent mailbox!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I really want to read Room (but will probably wait for the paperback). I have Summer at Tiffany on my shelf but haven't read it yet. Enjoy all your new books!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow! Tons of books! I haven't read any of them, but I do have "Blue Nude" out from the library, but haven't had a chance to read it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  18. So many great books there; I really liked Room; Hotel du Lac --enjoy

  19. Holy cow! I'm jealous of your haul! Drop by my blog and look at my significantly smaller list!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow - you've got some great reading ahead of you! Room especially - it's one of my favorites of 2010.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow, that's an impressive pile! I highly recommend Maisie Dobbs, which I think is the only book I've read from your pile (but it's excellent). Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Holy cow -- what a great haul! I've had Summer At Tiffany on my book radar for quite a while. Hope it's a great one!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great loot, you lucky woman! I also want to read Summer at Tiffany!

    Noticed that you got a few more McGrath books. Enjoy!

  24. I was going to say start with ROOM but many others have recommended that already. AND THEN THERE WERE NONE is also a great choice. It's one of the best mysteries ever and has been ripped off many times but the original is still king.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a lovely stack of books you've got there! So glad to hear that everything arrived safely, and I am so hoping that Room blows you away! Enjoy all those great reads!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow, that's a great variety of books. I really want to read room. I read The Girls Guide to Hunting and FIshing a few years ago, I don't remember if I liked it...

    ReplyDelete
  27. wow!!! holidays came early for you. :) my mailbox has been empty the last few weeks, but hope springs eternal.

    i haven't read any of the books but did have several of them on my 'books i want' list. :) enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, my gosh! What great books! I wouldn't know where to start either! The only one I've read is "Room", and it was a very good read, once you get into the flow of Jack's five-year-old's dialogue. Out of the others, "What Alice Knew" is the tops of the reading list for me! Enjoy them all!

  29. What a great stash of books!
    I'm tempted to suggest you start with The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing: it was the second complete novel I read in English, so it holds a special spot in my memories, but I don't know what I would think of it now - I probably should re-read it! Room seems to be a popular read, too, I've read really few negative comments on it.

  30. Drop everything and read Room! I read Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing years ago and loved it. I've enjoyed all of Paula Marantz Cohen's other books, but I haven't read the new one yet. I think you're in for quite a few treats!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Woah, great loot! I haven't read any of these, but I would go with either the Christie or the du Maurier.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Woot! So many books. I am a big fan of Anita Brookner and highly recommend Hotel Du Lac. And, oh Maisie Dobbs. You are in for a treat with that one!

    Enjoy all of your books.
