Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued.

It’s been a long time since I did a Mailbox Monday post. Sadly, I have not been accepting too many review copies of late. I’ve been enjoying my own reads, and accepting less review copies meant that I could focus more on reading the books I have long wanted to read, and also be able to read them at my pace without worrying about a blogging schedule.

But once in a while, a tempting enough book comes along my way, and then it’s a slippery slope to accepting a whole bunch of other books.

I’ve been on a book blogging slowdown lately, but that doesn’t mean my reading has slowed much. Honestly, I am up to my eyeballs in books I’ve read and just haven’t featured yet.

I fell in love with this cover when Penguin Random House sent me this book for review.
The picture here doesn’t do justice to it, the pink butterfly is just so much more vibrant in person. And there is a soft, velvety feel to it that almost makes you feel like you are touching an actual live butterfly.

It’s been a long time since I did a Mailbox Monday post. Sadly, I have not been receiving too many books of late. I’ve been rather disenchanted with the books that I did get, and well, things have been very ho-hum when it comes to my reading lately.

Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have mandated a a Valentine Day-based freebie, and very predictably I thought I’d list my top ten romances.

Me Before You and After You – My Spoilery Thoughts

I have a strong aversion to reading books about terminally ill people/ people struggling with ill-health / quadriplegics and tend to stay far away from them. I guess they all seem a bit too close to life, and after facing such issues with people close to me, I can tell you that real-life is far more complex and painful compared to what’s in the books. So why would I intentionally choose to sniffle over a sick person in a book when a sick person in my life needs the attention. Right?
