Mailbox Monday #21


Marcia's The Printed Page sponsored Mailbox Monday each week. Ready to see what came in my mailbox this week?

Here are the goodies:

1. A Lucky Child by Thomas Buergenthal from Hatchette Group

2. Miranda's Big Mistake by Jill Mansell for a tour with Sourcebooks

3. The Mechanics of Falling by Catherine Brady for an April TLC Book Tour

4. Tea and Other Ayama Na Tales by Eleanor Bluestein for an April TLC Book Tour

5. Deep Dish by Mary Kay Andrews for Book Club Girl's March 25 show

6. The True Keeps Calm Biding Its Story by Rusty Morrison from the American Academy of Poets, which won the James Laughlin Award.

7. Keeper of Light and Dust by Natasha Mostert from A Novel Menagerie for a small virtual tour.

8. The Italian Lover by Robert Hellenga from my great friend Janel at Janel's Jumble, and somehow I have two copies of this book. But this one is special because Janel included a cute little beaded book thong, which I assume she made herself! Janel, you're a gem!


***GIVEAWAY REMINDER***

I also have two copies of Diana Raab's My Muse Undresses Me and one copy of Dear Anaïs: My Life in Poems for You. Deadline is March 18 at 5PM EST.

One gently used ARC of Reading by Lightning by Joan Thomas; Deadline is March 20 at Midnight EST.

Serena...good books, but you've crossed over to the dark side with partial feed? :(

monnibo said...

Hey Serena did you change your Blog feed? My feed reader isn't updating your blog properly. Only the title, no text.

Wrighty said...

Wow, lots of goodies! I haven't read any of those yet but I do have a few of them. Hope you have a great week and get even more!

Serena said...

I did change the feed, but I think I may change it back. I don't like how it looks.

Thanks for stopping by the mailbox.

Kathrin said...

That's a nice list of books that arrived at your home last week :-) Enjoy them!

Kaye said...

Those look like great books, especially the Ayama Na book.

Here’s my post.

Mo from Unmainstream Mom Reads said...

Nice haul! I'm envious of A Lucky Child (Hachette ran out of arcs and I'm on the waiting list) & Keeper of Light & Dust (Season of the Witch, Mostert's last book, was amazing!). Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

gautami tripathy said...

You got a few great books!

Here is my mailbox

Kara said...

What a great collection of books!! Thanks for visiting my blog.

Mary said...

Great list. Enjoy!

Literary Feline said...

I should arm myself with a pen and paper every time I read these mailbox lists. So many great titles.

I am looking forward to reading The Mechanics of Falling. I have that one too. :-)

Red lady-Bonnie said...

Great list of books! I got Deep Dish also and just started reading it. It looks like a fun and quick read.

Trish said...

I just received Tea and Other Ayama Na Tales as well--look forward to hearing what you think!

Dawn - She is Too Fond of Books said...

What a great week in books! The book thong sounds fun and glittery (post a pic, if you can!)

I vote for full posts on the feed :)

Iliana said...

What a bounty! Some of these sound very good but I'm especially interested in the Keeper of Light & Dust. I read Natasha's first book last year and liked it quite a bit so I'm curious what this one will be like. Looking forward to your reviews!

shelburns said...

I have The Italian Lover in my TBR pile. Enjoy Keeper of Light and Dust; I've been trying to win it because I've heard good things about it. I'll be awaiting your review and the tour.

Melanie said...

you got a great bunch of books. Mirandas Big Mistake looks fun.

Serena said...

wrighty: I'm not sure my husband would agree that I need anymore books. LOL

I've changed it back to full feed...just an experiment. I had no idea whether it would be full title and brief post or just the title...that answered my question! LOL

I have not read mostert's first book, but I hope this one is great.

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by my mailbox this week.

Serena said...

Literary Feline: I always have my good reads account open so I can input titles directly and not lose them, though that list is out of control.

Dawn: I will try to remember to take a photo of the book thong.

Luanne said...

I got Miranda's Big Mistake too. I quite enjoy Jill Mansell. However I didn't realize it was part of a tour!?

Serena said...

Luanne: It's part of a tour for Sourcebooks I guess...that's what I'm calling it. LOL

Yvonne said...

I read The Italian Lover and Deep Dish. I enjoyed both of them.

Wendi B. - Wendi's Book Corner ~ Rainy Day Reads in Seattle said...

Congrats on The Italian Lover - that was one I was hoping to get!! Can't wait to see what you think about it.

Here's my Mailbox! ~ Wendi

bermudaonion said...

You got some great books. I bet the book thong from Janel is gorgeous. I got A Lucky Child, too.

Anna said...

You're right, we did get a lot of the same books! Have fun with these. You'll certainly be busy reading for a while.
