Sunday Post, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? July 17 Edition


Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Feels like summer is in full swing now here in Montreal. I'm spending time with my family, with friends and with my books. My whole den, including my office is still deep in renovation though, and it looks like it will be awhile before it's all finished. But the hot weather and the shining sun makes me forget everything else. :-)


Mailbox Monday Edition


Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.


My mailbox!
For review:

Met the author at Book Expo. She's Canadian and her book will be on tour with iRead Book Tours in August. 


Gifted to me by blogger friend Martha:

I was touched when Martha who blogs at Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf gifted me this boxed set of time travel books! Thank you for your kind gesture Martha!


A win from Savvy, Verse and Wit:

I was thrilled to win this at Savvy, Verse and Wit. The setting is the summer of 1978. Thanks to Serena and the author!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.



What I read and/or featured last week:


Can't put this one down... First time I read Marie Lu and now I want to read all her books.




Stop by and enter my giveaways!

Also posted on the right sidebar.

Hope you all have a great reading week.

  2. That's good to know about Warcross, I have that one down to get as well and it will be mt first Marie Lu, sop hopefully I'll like it too. And yes summer is in full swing, and it's nice to have lots of sun and nice temps!

    The Train Through Time set looks nice, and I like the 70's setting of Breaking and Holding.

    1. I thought I was the only one who still hadn't read any of her books. I think you would really like Warcross.

  3. This new Marie Lu series has me really intrigued. I haven't finished her Young Elites series yet- so I'm quite behind on her books!

  11. Hi Laura,

    Receiving a gift of books is always a joy and, being a little competitive, a win is even more satisfying!

    I like the cover of 'Path Of Lucas' but the one from your selection which caught my eye, was 'Breaking and Holding'

    Thanks for sharing and I hope that your renovation work is finished soon. We had builders in for almost 2 years and had to live in one room for much of that time, so I know what you are going through!

    Yvonne :)

    1. My hubby is doing most of the renovations. We have furniture crammed in our upstairs rooms, so it's a little crowded. But I shouldn't complain. It will be great once it's all done.

  12. I've read Marie Lu and want to read Warcross.

  13. I haven't read Marie Lu and Warcross does sound interesting. I was drawn by the cover of Path of Lucas and Breaking and Holding sounds emotional -- and good. I do hope you enjoy A Train Through Time. It just jumped at me because you have been enjoying time travels. Glad you are enjoying your summer time. Happy Reading!
