Mailbox Monday -- April 27

It's time for another Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page, where we talk about the books we received in the mail, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the last week. I love reading these mailbox posts because I learn about new and interesting titles, though it always adds to my already-too-long wish list.

I received four books this week from Miriam at Hachette. (Thanks Miriam!) They're all written by Joanna Scott:

Liberation (which looks like a good one for the WWII reading challenge)
Tourmaline
Everybody Loves Somebody
Make Believe

I've just finished Scott's Follow Me, and I'm part of the Hachette Early Birds Blog Tour, so look for my review today.

I think my Mailbox Monday posts will be sporadic at best in the coming weeks, as I'm trying to catch up on my review copies and I want to read some of the books already on my shelves before buying any more or making regular library jaunts. (Wish me luck...)

What books did you welcome into your home recently?

Wow you lucky Girl.. After reading Follow Me (I'm on the tour too) I even posted that I wanted to read Liberation.
It looks like I would enjoy that!

I hope the other Joanna Scott books are as good as Follow Me.

The Follow Me reviews are coming in mixed, but I know she is a great author, so you have a nice list. I have not heard of Liberation, but I'm always searching for the unknown WWII gem!

I haven't read any Joanna Scott books yet. I look forward to seeing all the reviews. I've seen them in a few mailboxes this week.

Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

I thought of you right away when I say the blurb for Liberation! I wish you luck with not requesting books. I'm in the same boat!

Thanks to everyone who commented on my Mailbox post! Though Follow Me wasn't a favorite of mine, just okay, I'm still looking forward to the rest of the Joanna Scott books. And I agree that Hachette is extremely generous!
