Mailbox Monday (130)

I'm managing to check in for a bit and post a Mailbox Monday update!
Mailbox Monday
For Review from France Book Tours
The Secret Language of Stones by M.J. Rose
I've read two other books by M.J. Rose and have enjoyed them both. Each one was historical fiction with a bit of magic thrown in, and I'm pretty sure based on the cover that will be the same this time.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I feel like I'm the last one to jump on the train here (Get it?!?), but I've finally arrived. I've actually already read this, and loved it. I totally see where the hype is coming from. Review to come... hopefully in the next year or so!

From Paperback Swap
Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
So five years ago, I read Hex Hall, the first in this series. Obviously, I've forgotten quite a bit, but do remember enjoying it. Hopefully this is as good as I remember, and maybe I'll even finish the series before the decade is over!

What did you find in your mailbox this week?


  1. I'm really looking forward to the MJ Rose book. I can't wait to see what you think!

  2. Hope you enjoy Girl on a Train! I saw the movie trailer this weekend and may have to re-read the book soon. The Hex Hall series is fun. Enjoy!

  3. I need to read Girl on a Train!

  4. I also loved The Girl on the Train. I read it early as I requested it from the library before it was released as I had already heard a lot of buzz about it.

    This week I downloaded the book, "Selfish, Shallow and Self-Absorbed" which is a collection of essays about various women's decision to not have children. That's not really my point of view but I think it will be interesting to read and will count toward my reading challenge I'm doing. I also bought the book "The Life We Bury" which is my book club book for May.

  5. I really liked The Girl on the Train too. Have a great week!

  6. I haven't read Girl on the Train but it seems I need to :)

  7. M. J. Rose's books always have the best covers. I just can't get into her books, though.

    I have read The Girl on Train and really don't care to. :)

    Have a great reading week.
