Mailbox Monday: Feb. 14th - 19th, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and February is being hosted by Library of Clean Reads! 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!


I'm currently in the midst of enjoying a nice, relaxing, three-day weekend! Here in the US it's President's Day Weekend. We didn't go anywhere this time and it's been incredibly rainy this weekend so what did I do a lot of the time? Read! It's been pretty good for the old TBR pile!


Here's what came in the mailbox this week:


From Philomel Books:
1. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys




















From Crown Publishers:
2. Radio Shangri-La: What I Learned in Bhutan, The Happiest Kingdom on Earth by Lisa Napoli




















From Doubleday:
3. The Revenge of the Radioactive Lady by Elizabeth Stuckey-French




















From Pamela Dorman Books:
4. The Silver Boat by Luanne Rice




















From LibraryThing EarlyReviewers:
5. Dreaming in English by Laura Fitzgerald
 
So have you heard of any of these? Which do you think I need to read first? What did you get?

  1. What a great collection! I particularly like the cover of Radioactive Lady, although I am most drawn to 'Between Shades of Gray', so I think you should read that first. I haven't read any of them but look forward to reading your reviews!

  13. I *think* I might have heard of Dreaming in English... The others are new. The only new to me book that came into my house last week was a collection of short stories by FlanneryO. Not by mailbox; bought this one.
