Mailbox Monday -- February 15

It's time for another Mailbox Monday, the weekly meme hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page where book lovers share the titles they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the past week.

After Mother Nature dumped over 40 inches of snow on my house in a matter of days, I'm surprised any mail came to my door.  But I did get two books for review:




The Gin Closet by Leslie Jamison, from Simon & Schuster











Rumor Has It by Jill Mansell, from Sourcebooks






What books did you add to your shelves recently?

Rumor has It does look interesting. I'll have to read your review.

Here is mine

Mary said...

THe Mansell book is on several lists today. Enjoy!

'The Gin Closet' sounds like it could be powerful. I kind of wish I had one myself (although I'm sure it's not meant to be a happy thing). Quite a few things have been arriving here through our brand new letter box.

Rumor Has It looks good and has been in quite a few mailboxes. Happy reading!

Kaye said...

OOh, I got the Mansell book too. It looks good. The Gin Closet sounds intriguing. I think I would read it for the title alone.

Jo-Jo said...

Both of these books look great...enjoy!

Diane said...

You got some terrific books this week. Enjoy them all.

What a lovely batch of books! They both look like interesting reads. I can't wait to hear what you think of them.

My mailbox haul is here.

I should try more Mansell, just didn't like the one I did try, but she is worth another go :D

Dana said...

Ooh, these both look really good. I'm really drawn in by the cover/title of the Gin Closet - hope it's good!

Staci said...

I have a Mansell book but I haven't gotten to it yet. Enjoy your great reads!

bermudaonion said...

Those both look good! I have The Gin Closet too and am really looking forward to reading it.

Charley said...

I followed your link for The Gin Closet over to the Simon & Schuster website. It sounds intriguing, so I look forward to reading your thoughts on it.

Suko said...

40 inches of snow?! Wow!

I hadn't heard of either of the books you got until now.

No books in the mail today for me. In fact, no mail at all. :)

Tea said...

I have read the second book. I loved it! It's a lot of fun.

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night, nor 40 inches of snow will apparently stop the USPS. Snowplows on the other hand....

At least you have something to keep you entertained! =D

Veens said...

The 2nd cover is so cute!!

Dar said...

Looks like you got 2 good ones Anna. I wouldn't mind reading either one of them.

Booksnyc said...

I have been meaning to read a Jill Mansell book - I hear great things about the author and I love Brit chick Lit!

enjoy!

Alyce said...

The Gin Closet has a provocative cover that makes me want to know more about it.
