Mailbox Monday

September 16, 2019

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia and now hosted on its own blog.  No physical books again this week but that’s just fine since I got plenty of books at SIBA.  I did download one audio book, though.

    I finished The Testaments over the weekend. I liked one of the perspectives more than the other two but I thought it was really good overall.

    I’m seeing this everywhere.

    I have the audio download of The Testaments – looking forward to trying it – enjoy Kathy.

    BTW – I started Dearly Beloved and am really liking it. Thanks for blogging about it.

    I’m curious about Testaments . . . but I feel like I need to reread Handmaid’s Tale again. I read it when it first came out and though I remember the gist, I don’t remember the details. We’ve been watching the show, but I don’t know how much follows the book and how much is embellishment. Argh.

    I hope you enjoy it. Can’t wait to see your books from SIBA!

    Oh you are so lucky to have gotten a copy of the new Atwood book!

    I got The Testaments, too…can’t wait to read it. Enjoy your week!

    Happy reading!

    I loved The Testaments. Maybe I’m not the one to say, because I have The Handmaid’s Tale just about memorized, but I don’t feel like people need to reread it before reading this new one. It’s a self-contained novel, although there’s a perspective on some of the characters if you’ve read the other one.

    I didn’t get any physical books this week either but did get 8 NetGalley approvals to add to my overflowing pile. Now to find the time to read them all!

    Seems like a lot of people got The Testaments. I’m not sure if I’ll pick it up or not. I hope you enjoy it!

    ENJOY, and have a great reading week, Kathy.

    I read the previous book, but not sure I’m interested in this one. My Mailbox is here:

    I haven’t read Handmaid’s Tale so I’d have to read it first! I’ll be looking for your review.

    Kathy, your book’s new-to-me as of now. Enjoy!

    I’ve been hearing bits and pieces about the SIBA books but I can’t wait to see pictures!!!

    I’m sure I will be interested in The Testaments after I finish The Handmaid’s Tale. 🙂

    A book that not surprisingly is popping up everywhere.

    I love the cover with its splash off green.

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts on The Testaments. I’m planning on borrowing the audio from my library. Have a great week and happy reading!

    I am eager to hear what everyone has to say about this one. I loved The Handmaid’s Tale.
