Mailbox Monday -- March 29

Welcome to 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.  Here are the books I added to my shelves:


The Book of Air and Shadows by Michael Gruber, from a co-worker





Glorious by Bernice McFadden, from the author






The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund by Jill Kargman, from Penguin.  I'm not sure why I received this book, and since I'm not sure it's my cup of tea, I'll either give it a try at some point or pass it on to my mother and see if I can get her to share her thoughts here.




Zan-Gah: A Prehistoric Adventure by Allan Richard Shickman, a contest win from Suko's Notebook (thanks!)





Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country by Allan Richard Shickman, a contest win from Suko's Notebook (thanks!)

GAH! I LOVED The Book of Air and Shadows (I reviewed it here, if you're interested), so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I too received it from a friend, so I was surprised to find she'd give away such a delightful, fun read!

This are new to me, but they look and sound great! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on them!! Have a great day, Anna!

Nicola said...

I'd like to read Book of Air and Shadows. I read his Forgery of Venus and thought it was pretty good, but I've hear Air and Shadows is the best.

wisteria said...

The Book of Air and Shadows looks like something I would like. I'll add it to my list.

Anna....Thank you again for the book I received this week, War on the Margins. :) Can't wait to read it.

The Book of Air and Shadows looks really interesting. Enjoy! Here's my Mailbox.

Darlene said...

Nice books. I've gotten a few I haven't asked for either. If it's nothing I want it usually ends up at the library.

DCMetroreader said...

I love surprises -- maybe you should give it a try as something different.

Enjoy your books!

The Zan-Gah books seem to be popular. My MM is here.

Jodie said...

Glorious sounds really good. Think I'm in the minority because I didn't like The Book of Air and Shadows.

dolcebellezza said...

Such a nice stash you received! Happy reading!

Iliana said...

What great loot! I think I have The Book of Air & Shadows somewhere in my stacks but you know how that goes :)

I've lucked out and gotten quite a few books lately too so I need to post about those!

Marie said...

Nice :) I have the Book of Air and Shadows on my TBR pile somewhere; I look forward to your review!

Alice Teh said...

What a mailbox! I like the look of "The Book of Air and Shadows". Happy reading!

Dawn @ sheIsTooFondOfBooks said...

GLORIOUS looks wonderful! I have McFadden's SUGAR on my shelf to read this month (did you read that? I don't remember ...)

Anna said...

Alice: Thanks!

Dawn: I've heard Sugar is really good. I don't have that one, but I'll probably get my hands on a copy if I enjoy Glorious.
