Sunday Post, Mailbox Monday and It's Monday What Are You Reading? April 16 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.

The snowstorm missed us but we are getting ice rain. The commute to work tomorrow will be a mess.

I'm nursing a tiny cold and so did a lot of reading this past week. My hubby and I started our daily evening walks again, but the cold is back and we cut some of them short. I'm dreaming of beaches...


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.


For Review:

She has been dubbed the successor to Ghandi. I love learning about strong women who are game changers for the good of humanity.



Historical fiction set in Italy during WWII


Free Kobo books:

Sounds like the main characters are Italian-American

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:


Book Towns: Forty-Five Paradises of the Printed Word by Alex Johnson (Review) This one gave me the travel bug. I want to visit every one of those book towns.


ICE by Lauren Carr (Review and Giveaway!) This was another winner by Lauren Carr. A new series with a strong set of characters
 


 Reading Now:

I'm loving this one


Stop by and enter my giveaways!

Also posted on the right sidebar.



Hope you all have a great reading week.

  1. I am dreaming of beaches, too, and we don't even have any snow!

    I like the look of A Family Affair: The Secret. Enjoy!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.

    1. I do hope we both get to go to the beach this summer. ;-)

  2. I think icy rain is worse than snow. I hope it's not too bad and you're feeling 100% soon.

    The civil disobedience book sounds very timely.

    1. I agree. Snow is so much easier to navigate than ice. I hope it melts fast.

  3. Ice rain and sleet here too, it sleeted all night. such joyful weather. I too could use some beaches...

    The Madonna of the Mountains looks interesting. Italy is always a great setting but I actually don't know if I've read anything set there in WWII, now that I think about it.

  4. Weather here was in the 80's on Friday, and it is pouring rain right now with snow expected.

    It is April, right? :)

    Love Susanna Kearsley's books...ENJOY!!

    Both THE MADONNA OF THE MOUNTAINS and A FAMILY AFFAIR look quite good.

    ENJOY, and I hope we both get better weather soon.

  7. Nice assortment of books. The snow didn't miss us. 12.7 inches set a new record for April 15 where I live. My only consolation is that April snow can't last long. Except they are forecasting more for Wednesday.Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  12. The Vandana Shiva book would be a good read. I remember her eco-feminism books.

  13. I wish there was a way to share weather. We'd love some of your cooler temps and I'd love to give you at least 10 degrees of our warm weather. 90s is a little warmer thank I like for April. Bellewether looks really good, so I'm glad you're loving it. Have a fantastic week!
