Mailbox Monday and It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Mailbox Monday

CardinalMailboxMailbox Monday was created by The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their home last week.

Mailbox Monday is currently on tour, hosted by a different blog each month. The February host is Audra @ Unabridged Chick.
Just one book this week but it’s one that I’m eager to begin reading.
For review from the author:

Looking For Me by Beth HoffmanLooking For Me
by Beth Hoffman

Teddi Overman found her life’s passion for furniture in a broken-down chair left on the side of the road in rural Kentucky. She learns to turn other people’s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques, and eventually finds a way to open her own shop in Charleston. There, Teddi builds a life for herself as unexpected and quirky as the customers who visit her shop. Though Teddi is surrounded by remarkable friends and finds love in the most surprising way, nothing can alleviate the haunting uncertainty she’s felt in the years since her brother Josh’s mysterious disappearance. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi is … more.


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Share what you read last week and what you are currently reading.

Last week

I posted one review, The Man in the Empty Suit, a reality-bending, mind-twisting time travel novel that science fiction fans should enjoy.

I finished listening to two audio books, The Painted Girls and The Bone Bed. Reviews coming soon.

This week

I’m listening to The Shining for the #shineon read-along.

In print books I’m reading Friendships Don’t Just Happen for book club and Scent of Darkness for an upcoming tour stop.

    I like the look of your Beth Hoffman book too. Can’t wait for your Scent of Darkness review!

    Beth’s book is making the MM posts – it looks great


  7. k2reader / Feb 18 2013 6:57 am

    I’ve heard great things about The Painted Girls – would you recommend the audio of it or the print version?

    The new Beth Hoffman book looks good. I haven’t read her other book yet, perhaps I should add both to my tbr list.

    Have a great week!

    Looking for Me sounds wonderful, Leslie! Enjoy your reading this week. 🙂


  17. Darlene / Feb 18 2013 2:07 pm

    Beth is sure popular this week and with good reason. I can’t wait to read Looking For Me!


  18. Wrighty / Feb 18 2013 3:25 pm

    This looks like a fun read and I love the cover. Enjoy! 🙂
    (The Shining scared me but it’s still a favorite!)


  19. Amy / Feb 18 2013 3:31 pm

    Beth Hoffman’s new book looks wonderful. I hope you enjoy it!

    I am really interested in reading The Painted Girls. I’ll be watching for your review. I hope you enjoy The Shining. I’ve only seen the movie and I’d guess the book gives a lot more detail about the family. I hopes it’s not too scary.

    I hope you have a good week of reading/listening!


  20. Elizabeth / Feb 18 2013 7:33 pm

    ENJOY…I love Beth Hoffman.
