Please don’t forget my two current giveaways: My 4th Blogiversary Giveaway ending April 24 and my Birthday Giveaway ending April 26!

Mailbox Mondays is a weekly event hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page. To join, please visit her blog!

Last week I've been really, really bad about visiting all your Mailboxes. Sorry! I hope and plan to be better this week.

Beth Fantaskey's Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side

Gail Carriger's Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate)

Batya Gur's The Saturday Morning Murder: A Psychoanalytic Case (Michael Ohayon Mysteries, No. 1) - I'm reading this series a bit out of order, because I can't always find the right book in the book store.

David Remnick's The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama - my first book about the current president of the USA, and I'm already curious!

And two German books:

Entschuldigung, sind Sie die Wurst? (Excuse me, are you the wurst/cold meats?), a birthday gift from a dear friend. It's a compilation of things overheard in public - similar to Overheard in New York and Overheard Everywhere. (You really need to check these out if you don't know them already!)

Daniel Kehlmann's Ruhm (Fame), which is a novel in nine stories, where one story links to the others in one way or another. This was a birthday gift from a colleague and friend.


  1. Enjoy all your new books! I'm curious about the Gail Carriger series.

  2. Looks like you had a great week! Happy reading!

    Diary of an Eccentric

  3. I really enjoyed Jessicas Guide. Happy reading!

  4. Thanks! I can't wait to read all those books, but as always: Too many books, too little time *sigh* I hope to have some more time later this year, though...

  5. I must say, I thought this was a pretty interesting read when it comes to this topic. Liked the material. web design web design
