Mailbox Monday -- November 10

Another Mailbox Monday hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page (Thanks, Marcia!), where we get to list what books were sent to us by mail or purchased last week.

I'm a little late in posting today, but better late than never! And hey, there's still a couple hours left in the day, at least where I live.

Last week, my husband spent a lot of time shaking his head as he handed over my packages. I know he was thinking, "Where are we going to put all these books?" (I won't admit to him that I haven't the faintest idea either!)

Anyway, here's what came in my mailbox last week:

The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards (contest win from FRESH INK BOOKS...thanks, Sandra!)

The Memorist and The Reincarnationist, both by MJ Rose (from the publisher for my TLC Book Tours stop on Nov. 19)



To My Senses by Alexandrea Weis (from the author)

Mrs. Claus Explains It All by Elsbeth Claus (from Sourcebooks)

We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver (for the December book discussion at Everyday I Write the Book)

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker, Testimony by Anita Shreve, and The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks (all from the lovely Miriam Parker at Hachette Book Group USA...thanks Miriam!!)

I can't wait to read all these great books!!

What books did you snag last week?

Ooh, there are a few on here that I've been meaning to read.

I'm really looking forward to The Little Giant of Aberdeen County. What a great stack of books!

Marcia said...

Thank you for stopping by the 'mailbox' this week. I downloaded 'The Reincarnationist' to the Kindle and I'll be meeting you over at EDIWTB for book club. I'm still waiting for my copy to arrive.

I just LOVED "To My Senses" by Alexandrea Weis. It was one of the best books I read.

Anna said...

Shana: I sure did! Miriam's great! I probably won't get to read The Memory Keeper's Daughter until next year. (I can't believe next year is just around the corner.)

Cathy: I read The Reincarnationist earlier this year, and I really enjoyed it! I'll be reviewing it on the 18th in preparation for MJ Rose's tour stop here for The Memorist on the 19th.

Ladytink: Congrats on winning the spooktacular contest! I'm jealous!

Trish: Little Giant sounds like such a great book. I can't wait to clear out a few more books so I can read it.

Marcia: Thanks for hosting! Looking forward to your thoughts on The Reincarnationist.

J. Kaye: So glad to hear you liked To My Senses. I checked it out before I accepted the book from the author, and it sounds good!
