Mailbox Monday (April 13th)

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week. My mailbox was overflowing last week, bear with me as this is a long list and I won't be able to post all of the bookcovers as I normally do.

The Wish Maker by Ali Sethi (ARC from Penguin)

10-10-10: A Life-Transforming Idea by Suzy Welch (Upcoming Blog Tour for MotherTalk)

Follow Me by Joanna Scott ( Upcoming Hachette blog tour)

The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen (This was a surprise from Random House, it is the paperback edition which will be released April 14th. It arrived with a few candy treats that coordinated with the cover which was a nice touch. I loved Garden Spells and this has been on my wishlist so it was a pleasant surprise!)

Sonata for Miriam by Linda Olsson (Won from Book Club Buzz-This was a wonderful surprise as well as this has been high on my wishlist since I knew it came out. I loved the authors first book Astrid & Veronika and can't wait to read this one. )

The Red Leather Diary by Lily Koppel (From BookClubGirl)

Angels of Destruction by Keith Donoghue (ARC from Random House)

Precious by Sandra Novack (Upcoming TLC Book Tour)


This list of books came from Paperbackswap:

In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan

Knitting for Dummies by Pam Allen

Shelter Me by Juliette Fay

Latte Trouble (Coffeehouse Mystery) by Cleo Coyle

Through the Grinder (Coffeehouse Mystery) by Cleo Coyle

I also got the first bookmark from The Literate Housewife’s BookmarkIt Club. It's beautiful and I'm already using it.

What books came into your house last week?


  1. Bonnie, what a nice surprise to receive The Sugar Queen! I read it a while ago and enjoyed it. I really like Sarah Addison Allen's writing style. Or maybe it's all the food references, lol.

  2. You had a great week. The Red Leather Diary is so good. I'm doing the Follow Me tour too.

  3. You got some great looking books last week!

    My mailbox is here.

  4. Maybe I should read "Flourishing with Food Allergies" by A. Anderson! I'll have to see if you think it has some good tips on how to do that.

    I also have Follow Me and The Read Leather Diary (see you on the Book Club Chat).

  5. Holy Books Batman!! That is quite some haul there!! I'm totally jealous of that list...lots on there that I want to read and a few that I have read...Enjoy it all with that candy you got with The Sugar Queen!!

  6. Oh! What a list! You got a couple of books that I requested, but didn't get. Yay for you!

  7. I won The Red Leather Diary so I will be reading that too at some point.

  8. OH MY --- what a GREAT list of new books!

    This is the third blog I have read that mentions Spiced. I look forward to the reviews - and if they are as good as the title - I will have to own this book soon :)

  9. I loved The Sugar Queen! That is so cool that they included coordinating candy. :)

  10. WOW, you received lots of books! I'm jealous!

    BTW, in response to your comment (and others) on my blog, I've decided to do a series of posts about some of the things I've learned to do with blogger. I've already got the first one up, regarding choosing a layout and tweaking it:

    Future topics (hopefully posted within the next week to two weeks) include: Header tabs/links, Grab Buttons and Favicons. I will add more topics if I think of anything useful.

  11. Wow, what a fun week :D
    Happy reading

  12. Wowser, you had quite a week Bonnie. I noticed that book Spiced somewhere-it looked interesting. The Sugar Queen was good-I just love her writing style. Happy reading, you certainly have enough to keep you occupied.

  13. Looks like some great food related books. Wouldn't it be nice if all books came with candy? LOL!

  14. Nice supply of books there! I have five of those titles so I'll be looking for reviews!

  15. Isn't it nice when you get a surprise like that in the mail? I really enjoyed Garden Spells and mean to put Sugar Queen on my wish list. Happy reading!

  16. I'll be looking for your Follow Me and Precious posts, as we're on the same tours. You've got a lot of great-looking titles there. Hope you enjoy them!
