Mailbox Monday -- November 2

Hope everyone's having a wonderful Monday.  Of course, it would be better if I could enjoy the bright sunny day without being cooped up in the office, but what can you do?  I hope everyone had a happy Halloween!  We had a fun time with some friends and their three kids, but I don't like the aftermath.  The whole "Hey, Mom, can I have some candy?" thing gets old real quick.

Anyway, it's time for another Mailbox Monday, when bookworms share what books they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the last week.  Thanks to Marcia from The Printed Page for hosting this weekly meme.  Here's what I found in my mailbox:



The Girl on Legare Street by Karen White (from Joan Schulhafer Publishing & Media Consulting for review)



A Dawn Like Thunder:  The True Story of Torpedo Squadron Eight by Robert J. Mrazek (from Hachette for review)



The Listeners by Gloria Whelan (contest win from Brimful Curiosities)



Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble (contest win from Book Blogger Appreciation Week)

 



What books did you welcome into your home recently?

Congrats on your BBAW Wins =)
I read WWJAD by Brown, & it was a cute premise. Not exactly an Austen-themed novel though, but a good Romance novel with some time travel and ghosts added.
Here is mine
