Good Books & Good Wine Update

I noticed that Kate at the Neverending Shelf combined the In My Mailbox meme and the It’s Monday What Are You Reading meme, and in the interest of cutting down on memes/clutter, I’m going to follow suite and do the same. I don’t have a nifty title like the shelf report, BUT think of this as more meat, less filler.

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren. New Crayons highlights the PoC books we get during the week and is hosted by Color Online. It’s Monday What Are You Reading is hosted by One Person’s Journey Through A World of Books

    I can't wait to see your review of V for Vendetta! I loved that book (the movie was pretty awesome too).

  2. Dead tossed waves looks like a good interesting book!! Heard a lot of good things about it. Waiting for your review on it. Hope you enjoy reading all those books!!!!

  3. I really want to read The Maze Runner! Before I Fall and Rampant are two of my favorite books! Enjoy πŸ™‚

  4. I like combination stuff. I combine the mailbox memes, the friday finds, and library loot into one weekly journal attached to my Sunday Salon post. It's tidier that way!

  5. Juju at Tales of says

    Love your shelves and LOVE your Police shirt πŸ™‚

  6. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on The Arrival πŸ™‚

    (Also, *I* don't know how "Nymeth" is pronounced either, lol. It's basically a made up screen name, though, so any pronunciation is correct :P)

  7. This combined-memes thing is good. Great vlog too.

    I'm interested to hear what you think of Peace, Locomotion since I really loved Locomotion itself.

  8. Christina T says

    Congratulations on winning The Dead Tossed Waves. I look forward to reading your review on that. I've heard really good things about The Maze Runner and Before I Fall. My sister read Push and said it was fantastic. I hope you enjoy all your great books.

    Good luck on War and Peace. I haven't been brave enough to take it on yet.

  9. Christina/Book Addict says

    Congrats on your win! I've heard good things about DTW. I really want to read Maze Runner and am currently reading Before I Fall. Good luck with War and Peace- I've never had the courage to tackle that one. Enjoy your books this week!

  10. I need to read The Maze Runner too, agh! YAY for another vlog, you chose a pink border for yours too!
