Mailbox Monday - June 28th - July 3rd, 2010

It's Mailbox Monday time! Hosted by Marcia over at the Printed Page, Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!

Did all of my readers from the US have a fabulous 4th of July yesterday? Enjoy some fun firework shows? Great! Ok, onto the books!

Here's what I got this week. From PBS:

1. 'April and Oliver' by Tess Callahan




















2. 'Lift' by Kelly Corrigan




















And finally, from my boyfriend's mom:
3. 'Follow the River' by James Alexander Thom



















What did you get?

  10. I read an ARC of April & Oliver last year - really liked it and though it was a good debut novel. Hope you like it as well.

  13. Oh! I'm definitely interested in seeing what you think of the Kelly Corrigan novel. I've wanted to read her novel The Middle Place for some time and haven't been able to. So, I'm interested to see if you like her writing.

    Enjoy!

  14. I will be watching for your reviews on Lift. I have been pondering whether to read it, maybe you can help me decide. April & Oliver sounds so inviting. When I see titles with just characters names, I think Rose and Jack from Titanic. I want to find another love story that knocks my socks off like their romance has.
