Mailbox Monday #1 : Lolita

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.  I thought that this is a great way to show what books will form my TBR.

So, the book that I got last week in my mailbox is a giveaway prize I won through Instagram. Look at that cover though! I love it. The book is called Lolita and it is authored by Vladimir Nabokov. It gained the stature of a classic quite quickly. The plot of the novel goes something like this: a middle aged professor is sexually attracted to a 12- year old girl and goes to the extent of marrying her mother to be close to the girl. Quite scandalous! This book was published way back in 1955. Interestingly, this book is added to the Time's Magazine List of 100 best English language novels published from 1923 to 2005. I am looking forward to reading this book so much. 


  1. I've never read that one. I hope you love it.

  2. I've never read it, but that cover is so pretty.

  3. Instagram is a fun place.

    CONGRATS on your win. I hope you enjoy the book.

    Nice to see you again on Mailbox have such a lovely blog.

    Have a nice week.
