Mailbox Monday #59


Marcia at The Printed Page and Kristi of The Story Siren both sponsor memes in which bloggers share what books they've received in the past week.  I'm going to continue calling these Mailbox Mondays, but The Story Siren also has In My Mailbox.  It's another edition of Mailbox Monday and In My Mailbox on Sunday!  Got a great tour starting on Monday, 12/7 for Mary Lydon Simonsen's Searching for Pemberley.

Anyway, enough of that!  Let's get to the books, shall we?!



1.  Ivy + Bean:  Doomed to Dance by Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall, which I received for review.



2.  Government Girl by Stacy Parker Aab, which I received for TLC Book Tour.



3.  Our Choice:  A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis by Al Gore (audio), which I received from The Green Books Campaign after all you wonderful commentators checked out my review of Saffron Dreams (click for my review during the campaign).



4.  The Glass Room by Simon Mawer, which I received for review from BlueDot Literary



5.  The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli, which I received for a TLC Book Tour.



6.  The Wives of Henry Oades by Johanna Moran, which I received from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.



7.  Kitty's House of Horrors by Carrie Vaughn, which I received from Hachette Group for review.



8.  Broken Birds:  The Story of my Momila by Jeannette Katzir, which Anna at Diary of an Eccentric gave me over the weekend.

What did you get in your mailbox?!

Some of these have already caught my eye. I would call that a pretty lucrative week!

BookChickCity: I actually haven't read any of the Kitte Norville series, but I've heard great things about it.

Julie: This was a good week in books.

Sheila: I'm really looking forward to Lotus Eaters.

Kathy: We'll have to compare notes on Our Choice.

I have all but one of the Kitty books but I haven't read the last two yet since I was kind of upset with the guy she chose. Not that I didn't like him, it's just that I liked a few other guys in the series a lot more. Happy reading!

You got some fantastic looking books! Government Girl looks like a lot of fun.

Mary said...

What a list! Hope you enjoy them all.

I'm doing the Ivy & Bean tour too! I wish this series was around when I was a girl.

Enjoy your books!

Wow! Great mailbox this week! :) Happy reading!

Beth(bookaholicmom) said...

I received The Wives of Henry Oades too. It looks interesting. I think I may have to put the Lotus Eaters on my wishlist. Enjoy all your books!

I want to read a lot of the books you listed! And I have never heard of Government Girl but it looks like an interesting read.

I am so jealous that you got Kitty and the House of Horrors!

avisannschild said...

Sounds like you got a bunch of interesting reads! Thanks, by the way, for sending me books recently (which I mention in my MM post)! I'm a bit apprehensive about the Oates book (she can be a bit harsh), but I wanted to give her another chance...

Jo-Jo said...

That is a nice selection of books Serena! The Lotus Eaters sure looks like a good one to me. Enjoy!

Dar said...

Looks like a good mailbox Serena. I have The Wives of Henry Oades as well. It sounds pretty good.
