I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Happy Monday!

Not much read that counts (lots of on-line stories). Had a great lunch out with my parents then shopping with Mom. Don't have many plans for this week but husband is talking about a quick trip out of town next week for the two of us.

Hope everyone has plans for a great week.

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books. Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia of The Printed Page. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

A big Thank You to Leah for hosting in September, the October host is Serena at Savvy Verse and Wit (blog link, not post link).

You bought some good books!

bermudaonion said...

I see a lot of good titles on that list. I loved A Prayer for Owen Meany and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. I hope you do too!

Anonymous said...

Lots of good reading ahead.

Kristin said... sure got a ton of books this week! I really need to start reading Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series.

Stop by my It's Monday post if you get a chance.

RAnn said...

Benny & Shrimp was interesting. There is something about Mallery's writing that just doesn't do it for me though.

Beth(bookaholicmom) said...

I've heard A Prayer for Owen Meany is very good. I hope you enjoy all your new reads.

Jenny Q said...

Great Mailbox! Susan Mallery is an author I'd like to try.

I read 'A Modern Witch' earlier this year and surprised myself with how much I enjoyed it! I have the sequel on my eReader too but just haven't got around to it yet - hope you like it! :)

I reviewed How Many Cats last month. It's nice to see others blogging about the same books. :)

I guess it was a pretty normal week of reading for me. Please come see what I've read.

Mystica said...

Some lovely books here. Enjoy them all.

Alyce said...

Wow, you got a lot of books last week!

Serena said...
