**Mailbox Monday is now hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
Grab some coffee (or a pot of tea!), and let’s talk about our weeks.
It has been a great week, and today I’ve been working on this blog for Bloggiesta. Click the link to check out my progress.
At lunch, I took a break and headed over to Mimi’s, where I read and enjoyed a salad…and a martini.
My reading this week veered off course, and I found myself grabbing books from Sparky that I hadn’t planned to read…it all started when I began reading the book You and couldn’t engage with it. I think it was my mood….there were things happening that were distressful, so I chose some books that pulled me in immediately and didn’t freak me out. I plan to return to that book at a later time.
So here’s what happened:
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:

My mailbox was empty this week! But I downloaded one book onto Sparky.
The Girl on the Train (e-book), by Paula Hawkins
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.
I can’t wait to read this one!
WHAT’S UP NEXT? — (Titles/Covers Linked to Amazon)

That’s it…unless I read them all and need to grab more. If that happens, I have plenty more in my queue on Sparky. What did your week look like?
With my salad earlier, I had this lovely martini: a pomegranate martini.
