Mailbox Monday: Feb. 7th - 12th, 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!

How was everyone's weekend? We had another nice, sunny weekend (sorry, ya'll!). It was also my boyfriend's birthday so we celebrated that yesterday. I made him a nice dinner. Since it's so close to Valentine's day we can never get a reservation anywhere! And speaking of Valentine's Day -- Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you have a fabulous one, whatever you do!

I have a confession to make. I went to Borders to by said boyfriend a birthday present and they were having a huge clearance sale so most of this mailbox is made up of finds from there. Here on out, so help me God, I will STOP BUYING BOOKS! Ok, I got that off my chest. Here's what came into the house this week:

From the author:
1. The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton

2. From St. Martin's Griffin:
The Raven's Bride by Lenore Hart

Items I bought at Borders:
3. Paula Deen a Memoir: It Ain't All About the Cookin' by Paula Deen (an audiobook)

4. Happens Every Day: An All Too True Story by Isabel Gillies (audiobook)

5. How I Learned to Cook: and Other Writings on Complex Mother-Daughter Relationships Edited by Margo Perin

6. Diamond Ruby by Joseph Wallace

7. The Perfect Happiness by Santa Montefiore

Which do you recommend I read first? What did you get this week?


  1. Hmm, I'll bet they're all good. The only one I've read is The Tapestry of Love which I really enjoyed. Happy reading :-)

  2. Ooooh, nice looking mailbox :) I have Rosy Thornton's book too - thanks for the reminder to read it! And I think the How I Learned to Cook book looks great (although my mother never taught me to cook - my older sister did!!)

  3. I want the Paula Deen book. I love her and I have heard that memoir is fantastic. The Ravens Bride looks very interesting

  4. The Raven, go with that one :)

    A hug clearance sale, I mean you save money ;) SO of course you gotta buy

  5. These all look like great books! How I Learned to Cook looks particularly interesting. Enjoy!

  6. I say read Diamond Ruby first - I've heard it's great!

  7. I've been hearing great things about Tapestry of Love. The only one I've read is Happens Every Day, which I enjoyed immensely (and somehow never got around to reviewing!)

  8. Hey, when you are done with Diamond Ruby, do you want to do a book swap?? I need to read that for one of my challenges!

  9. awesome books, I love the cover of Raven's Bride. Belated happy Valentines day and Belated Happy birthday to your boyfriend.

    We have a Borders clearance sale at the end of this month. I'm already excited.

  10. I've made that same vow and then I go to the bookstore and my vow is so not going to last. What a great bunch of books and really how can you pass up a Clearance sale? Wouldn't it be irresponsible? I'm in agreement about Diamond Ruby, sounds like a great read.

  11. Looks like a great assortment of books. I received The Tapestry of Love recently, so I'll keep an eye out for your review. The Paula Deen book sounds good, too. Enjoy!

  12. I am curious to see what you think of Diamond Ruby. Like Kathy, I have heard great things about that one.

  13. As the author of Diamond Ruby, I wanted to say thank you for including my book in this great assortment...and for all the kind mentions in the comments. Hope you all enjoy it!


Thanks for stopping by Amused By Books and taking the time to comment!
