Mailbox Monday & It's Monday! What Are You Reading?




Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It was created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books but now has a permanent home here


This week I got the kindle ebook of The Fallow Season of Hugo Hunter by Craig Lancaster, you can read about it in my book beginning post here I also received a copy of Black Chalk by Christopher J. Yates that I won from the publisher in a Twitter competition.

Black Chalk 

One game. Six students. Five survivors. It was only ever meant to be a game played by six best friends in their first year at Oxford University; a game of consequences, silly forfeits, and childish dares. But then the game changed: the stakes grew higher and the dares more personal and more humiliating, finally evolving into a vicious struggle with unpredictable and tragic results. Now, 14 years later, the remaining players must meet again for the final round. Who knows better than your best friends what would break you?




It's Monday! What Are You Reading is a weekly meme run by Book Journey and you can mention books you've just finished, are currently reading and any you plan to read this week. You can leave a link to your blog and read other bloggers posts.


I've been busy recently so haven't had as much time for reading as I normally do. I did finish A Place Called Winter by Patrick Gale though which was excellent. My current read is The Fallow Season of Hugo Hunter by Craig Lancaster. I only downloaded it at the end of last week but have loved three of his previous novels so started it straight away.
