Mailbox Monday …. 19th March 2012


Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house during the last week.

Be warned that Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Mailbox Monday, is currently ‘on tour’ and being hosted by a different blogger each month.



Your host for the month of March is: … Anna at Diary Of an Eccentric
So why not stop by, leave a link to your own Mailbox Monday post, oh! and don’t forget to leave a comment for Anna, after all, we all like to receive them!

This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!


This week I am waiting to get stuck into a book which first came to my attention after its review by fellow blogger Cath, over at Read Warbler. She got a little bogged down with this one (ambivilent was the word Cath used I think), but knowing how I like a good mystery, she suggested that I tried it, to see what I thought.

As it is available as a free  download to kindle I thought, ‘Nothing To Lose’, so have added it to my archive.

Reviews and thoughts can be a little subjective, as everyone’s tastes are quite different and what suits one person, may not suit another, so it will be interesting to see just how much my thoughts about the book differ from Cath’s own.



Somewhere in the hinterlands of Alaska, among the millions of sprawling acres that comprise “The Park,” a young National Park Ranger has gone missing.

When the detective sent after him also vanishes, the Anchorage DA’s department must turn to their reluctant former investigator, Kate Shugak.

Shugak knows The Park because she’s of The Park, an Aleut who left her home village of Niniltna to pursue education, a career, and the righting of wrongs. Kate’s search for the missing men will take her from self-imposed exile back to a life she’d left behind, and face-to-face with people and problems she’d hoped never to confront again.

Written way back in 1992, A Cold Day for Murder The first novel in the popular Kate Shugak Series, and established Dana Stabenow as a new voice in Alaskan mystery writing,  also earning her an Edgar Award.

As there will soon be 19 books in this series, I am a little late in discovering them, but if I do enjoy the style of writing, then I shall be tackling the rest of the series (I shall definitely aim to read this series in strict order of publishing), just as soon as possible.


Enoy your reading during the coming week

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
