Mailbox Monday

Happy Monday!!! This is the first time I am doing a Meme here and thought that it would be fun to do. The Printed Page is host to this weekly meme.

Here’s what I found in my mailbox last week:
What books came into your house last week?


  1. You got some good ones! I liked Tallgrass, Queen of the Road, and Sweet Love!

  2. You did get some good ones. Last week, I got See You in a Hundred Years, Hannah's Dream, Kindred Spirits, When We Were Romans, and The Gate House. Now if I could only hire a maid so I could read full time.

  3. Bonnie, Wow! Do you get requests from authors or do you sign up for giveaways?

  4. Bonnie, lucky you getting Queen of the Road. That one looks so good. The cocktail recipes alone would entice me :)

    I too have The Gifted Gabaldon Sisters and can't wait to read it. Isn't the cover GORGEOUS?!?!

  5. Thanks to everyone for their great comments.

    I actually received 2 more books in the mail today!

    *The Richest Season by MaryAnn McFadden

    *Innocent Traitor: A Novel of Lady Jane Grey by Allison Weir

    JulieP-Glad to hear that you liked and read 3 on my list!

    Bermuda-You got some good ones as well. The only one that I have from your list I had a hard time getting into ,When we were romans.
    I hear you on hiring a maid,LOL...I wish that I had more time to read and blog!! I love it!

    Mary-I have had great luck trading books on Paperbackswap and Bookmooch! The first 4 books were from there and they are all in excellent to Like New condition!
    The Gifted Gabaldon Sisters was from Miriam who hosts the Early Bird ARC Review at:
    I just signed up for this website and found lots of familiar faces there! Check it out.

    Shana-The cover is gorgeous!I am looking forward to reading it also.
    I'll have to look for the cocktail recipes, I didn't realize that they were in there!!

  6. BonnieOH - what is a Meme? I clicked on the link and it took me to Wordpress from the Printed Page. I am new to blogging too and am unsure of all the trendy terms I guess.

  7. Bonnie, thanks for the invitation to BB. I joined and signed up for the Early Bird ARC Review. Looks like a good group!

  8. Jennifer,

    I found a site that explains this well, check it out...

    It's basically a list of questions that people ask in their blogs.
    For example, The Printed Page hosts the meme "Mailbox Mondays" and the question is "What books came into your house last week?".

    Can more experienced bloggers add any other explanations for Jennifer...I believe I'm on target here but correct me if I'm wrong!

  9. I just got Unaccustomed Earth a few weeks ago myself - I'm excited to get started with it.

  10. Great selection of books! Did you get a chance to read What Happened to Anna K yet? I'm interested in your thoughts.

  11. Elizabeth-Thanks for commenting. I am looking forward to reading Unaccustomed Earth also. I posted a comment to you on your Mailbox Monday.

    Bree-I haven't gotten to Anna K yet! My TBR pile is overflowing and I hope to get to it soon and will post a review!


Thanks for visiting and sharing a comment!
