Mailbox Monday -- January 19

Another Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia of The Printed Page, where we list the books we bought or received over the past week.

I received only a few last week. I'm being very picky when it comes to review copies, as I have a bunch that still must be read. Here's what I got:

The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy (from the author)

Flirting With Forty by Jane Porter (a contest win from Wendi's Book Corner...thanks Wendi!)

Gold Dust on His Shirt: The True Story of an Immigrant Mining Family by Irene Howard (from Mini Book Expo for Bloggers)

What did you receive last week?


Laura said...

I just received The Triumph of Deborah as well, and I'm really excited about reading it! I'm looking forward to your thoughts!

I hope you like Flirting With Forty as much as I did.

Flirting With Forty was so much fun - I hope you like it!

Jo-Jo said...

I also received The Triumph of Deborah and can't wait to get to it.

Luanne said...

The Gold Dust on His Shirt sounds interesting. Flirting with Forty was a fun fluff read.

I've got The Triumph of Deborah, too. It's been on the stacks for a while, so it's way up on the TBR list!

I just saw a movie preview this weekend for Flirting With Forty. I thought it was based on book, but wasn't sure. Now I know. :-) Enjoy your new books!

Jeannie said...

I received (from myself) YOU: Being Beautiful for my Kindle.

I have read The Triumph Of Deborah. It is one of those books you just can't put down. I know you'll love it, Anna.

Wendi said...

I loved Flirting With Forty! Glad you got it!! I also received the Triumph of Deborah - it sounds wonderful.

Thank you for stopping by the 'mailbox' this week. Of the 3 JP books I've read 'Flirting with Forty' has been my favorite though all were good.
