Mailbox Monday: Nov. 22nd - 27th, 2010

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and October is being hosted by Knitting and Sundries! 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 and audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!


Did everyone have a nice relaxing holiday weekend or were you all busy fighting the crowds doing Christmas shopping and entertaining guests? We had a nice relaxing weekend and it was glorious although it was pretty cold here. I was able to get a lot of reading done and get my decorations done for the holidays which was fun. I did manage to do get a little shopping crossed off my list too so I feel pretty accomplished! 


Here's what came into the mailbox this past week.


From Random House:


1. 'The Invisible Bridge' by Julie Orringer




















2. 'How to Breathe Underwater' by Julie Orringer




















From Crazy Book Tours:
3. 'My Name is Memory' by Ann Brashares

  3. I received for review Season of Seduction by Jennifer Haymore from The Book Tree.

    Although the widowed Lady Rebecca has sworn off marriage, men are another matter. London's cold winter nights have her dreaming of warmer pursuits-like finding a lover to satisfy her hungry heart. Someone handsome, discreet, and most importantly as uninterested in marriage as she is. Someone like Jack Fulton.

    A known adventurer and playboy, Jack seems like the perfect choice. There's just one problem: Jack isn't interested in an affair. He needs the beautiful, mysterious Lady Rebecca to be his wife. And he doesn't have much time to persuade her. A secret from Jack's past is about to surface, and by Christmas Day he'll be either married to Rebecca or dead.

    I received for review A Very Simple Crime by Grant Jerkins from Berkley Trade.

    A twisting debut novel of murder and dark family secrets from a riveting new voice in crime fiction.

    A murdered woman. A grieving husband. And their son-a mentally handicapped adult with a history of violent outbursts. A very simple case. Or is it?

    Leo Hewitt, an Assistant DA once blamed for setting free a notorious child-killer, is eager to redeem himself with this intimate and grisly crime. As he digs below the surface he discovers more than he ever anticipated-including an emotionally disturbed wife, a husband who'd do anything to escape his disastrous marriage, and an accused young man with no apparent means of defense. But with each shocking new revelation, Leo is only led deeper and deeper into the darkness-an inescapable trap of blood bonds and twisted family secrets.
