The Last Bridge's cover has me very intrigued! I enjoyed The Girl Who Stopped Swimming.

Woohoo! Unexpected suprises are always good!

I read some really great reviews for American Eve several months ago. Hope you enjoy it!

Red lady-Bonnie said...

It's always fun to get surprise books isn't it?! I haven't heard of a few of those and the covers are nice. Happy Reading!

Flowers for Elvis totally has my attention. I've been an Elvis fan for as long as I can remember.

lilly said...

You got some nice unexpected surprises, it must feel awesome when that happens. I'll be looking forward to the reviews.

Andi said...

Wow, these all look fantabulous! I've been feeling the urge for some new books on my stacks, but I've been tiding myself over with library books. Although, I do feel a used bookstore spending spree coming on fast since I have a gift card.

Liz said...

I'm deep into non-fiction, oddly enough (I LOVE fiction)! I'm delving into the ADD world with something that is titled something like "You mean I'm not lazy, stupid or ... something else?" (too lazy to look it up for sure). Fits one of my kids to a T! So that's making me crazy because I asked about her TWICE in her middle school/high school career so far... And, as a gift to the daughter of a beloved friend -- and one I'm trying to get one of my kids to read -- a book about how to get a job! OK, lots of people need this! My friend's daughter just graduated from college. Since I'm pushing my own kid, I'm flipping through it too -- what a great bok. Full of lots of great tips to help you land the right job. It's called (for anyone else seeking a grad gift, or looking for their own job) Job Coach for Young Professionals. It will give my friend's daughter some extra insights and help in getting that great (first) job.

Also reading the latest Nora Roberts. "Vision in White." Fun, completely forgettable. ThatMolly Marx looks interesting.

Wrighty said...

I haven't read any of these yet but they all sound good! And how great to get surprises in the mail! I look forward to hearing what you think of these. Enjoy!

Iliana said...

Don't you just love getting new books? I haven't really heard of most of these so looking forward to your reviews :)

CherryBlossomMJ said...

I love those covers! It amazes me what all they can come up with that fits that titles and individual books so well.

Wanda said...

Got curious about 'Flowers For Elvis' so clicked and read the excerpt ... WOWIE — sounds like you're in for a great read with that one!

I spy one we have in common, just received 'The Girl Who Stopped Swimming'...

Kathrin said...

Great books, Anna! Enjoy them :-) I have the Molly Marx book coming for me as well. Can't wait to see what you think.

Mari said...

Some really great books. Enjoy. :)

Rebecca :) said...

What a great looking bunch! I have been wanting to read The Girl Who Stopped Swimming. American Eve and Flowers for Elvis look good, too! Have fun reading them!

Thanks everyone for stopping by my Mailbox! Unexpected bookish surprises are great, but I really need to break down and buy a new bookshelf. LOL
