Mailbox Monday (1) and What’s on my shelf

So,how have the first few days of the year been for all of you?.I’m having loads of fun and even surprised myself by posting a review already. This is my first post for Mailbox Monday,a gathering place for booklovers to share the books that came into their lives (:-)!!) last week. It is hosted by RoseCity Reader.

No books came in for review last week,neither did i buy anything for myself(Surprising!) .I picked up a few books from the library.My TBR for the weeks to follow:

I haven’t read Chocolat,only seen the movie,which i thought was awesome. I’ve been hearing rave reviews about Joanne’s writing and decided to pick this one up,even though it’s supposed to be the sequel. 100 pages into the book,I am loving it !

I read too much of fiction and not enough travel writing.I picked up In Xanadu in an attempt to read more out of my comfort zone.The hubby is a travel-writing enthusiast and often monopolizes the book till the due day stares upon our faces,so i am not sure if I’ll get time to read this book. I read Darymple’s Nine lives and loved it and am looking forward to reading more of his stuff.

Breathing in Colour was picked up on a whim- I loved the cover’s vibrancy. The blurb on the book’s sleeve also sounded interesting-it’s about a woman’s search for her missing daughter.

I also have a author requested review to finish(Review coming soon).What’s on your bookshelves?
