Mailbox Monday -- January 25

Although I didn't want the weekend -- or the hours of Beatles Rock Band at Serena's house -- to end, it's time for another Mailbox Monday.  Marcia from The Printed Page hosts this weekly meme, where book lovers share the titles they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the past week.

I received only 2 books for review, but they both look really good:


Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart by Beth Pattillo, from Phenix & Phenix






Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann, from Random House for an upcoming TLC tour




What books did you add to your shelves recently?

I'm also on the McCann tour! I really am jealous that you got Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart! Happy reading.

I like the cover of the Darcy book! Happy reading!

Mondays: Musings/Mailbox/Whereabouts

Kaye said...

Oh, I love the cover for Mr. Darcy even though it reminds me of Girls in Trucks, a thoroughly disagreeable book. I hope you enjoy them.

Mary said...

I love the Mr. Darcy cover too. Hope they're both good books!

Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart looks great. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

Stay away from Rock Band Beatles...it is addicting! Hours later, you will wonder what just happened to your day. On the bright side, I find it quite a wonderful way to work out my arms (at least if you are playing the drums!).

Jonita said...

Enjoy the Colum McCann! I was lucky enough to snag an ARC in the summer and it was wonderful!

Lenore said...

I hope we get pictures of your weekend!!

Blodeuedd said...

That first sure sounds interesting
Happy reading :)

Suko said...

These do look really good. I like the look of these "miniature covers". Sometimes I wonder if I should reduce the size of the pictures on my own blog--I hope it's not slow to load!

I haven't gotten any new books for a few days, but that's a good thing. Hopefully, I can catch up on my reading a bit!

I have Let The Great World Spin too. It looks like such an unassuming little book but everyone raves about it. I have to see what all the fuss is about!

Beth(bookaholicmom) said...

Both books sound interesting. Love the cover on Mr. Darcy. That dress is dramatic! Enjoy!

Happy Reading! :)

Awesome arrivals this week- they're both on my reading wishlist.

Mr Darcy Broke My Heart arrived a few weeks ago and is still TBR. I loved her first book. My post is here.

Dar said...

I'm glad you had fun at Serena's! You guys are so lucky to live near each other. I love the cover on the Darcy book. Enjoy!

Anna said...

Thank you all for stopping by my mailbox!

Sandy: Too bad I suck really bad at the drums!

Suko: I tend to use the small pictures for my mailbox posts and larger cover images for reviews. I haven't had any problems loading your blog.

Dar: I'm lucky to have had her as a friend for the last 14 or so years!
