Mailbox Monday: Apr. 11th - 16th, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and April is being hosted by Passages to the Past! 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!

This weekend was nice and relaxing. It was really nice and sunny outside so we got to go enjoy the sunshine while it's here and I am also finally done with the online editing class I've been taking. Woohoo!

Another Monday, more fabulous books to read in my mailbox. I hope you received lots of goodies too!

From Harper Perennial for TLC Book Tours:
1. Skinny by Diana Spechler

A win from Books in the City:
2. Devotion by Dani Shapiro

From Berkeley Publishing Group:
3. The Last Time I Saw Paris by Lynn Sheene

From St. Martins Griffin:
4. The Lady and the Poet by Maeve Haran

From PBS:
5. Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin

6. Winter Bloom by Tara Heavey

What did you get?


  1. Wow, you've got some awesome books. The last 2 look particularly good.

  2. You got some good ones! Love the covers.

  3. I started Devotion and so far really enjoy it! Great group of books there :)

  4. Skinny didn't do it for me; hope you like it.

  5. I have enjoyed Shapiro's writing in the past, so her memoir appeals to me. Hope you enjoy it!

  6. You got some great books this week! I am especially intrigued by The Lady and The Poet, love that cover...the same goes for Winter Bloom by Tara Heavey.
    I have Skinny to read and I read and reviewed Devotion a few weeks ago. It's wonderful. I hope you enjoy it.

    Happy Reading!

  7. Great books! We also had a nice weekend, which makes me want to read outside.

  8. The covers alone are worth loving them for but there are some really good books there. I really looking forward to The Last Time I Saw Paris and The Lady and the Poet. Can't wait to see what you think of all your wonderful books. We had beautiful weather too this weekend, though I'm sad to say the gloom is back today. Oh well, at least I won't miss the outside as much.

  9. Oh, they all look good. I'm really interested in Skinny!

  10. You know, I just really love book covers these days. So pretty. Hope you enjoy these!

  11. Oh my gosh I would have a hard time choosing which one to start reading first.

  12. I like the sound of the Paris, and the Poet book. I hope they are good :)

  13. I'm currently reading a Paris themed book, so I hope you enjoy The Last Time I Saw Paris. Well, I hope you enjoy them all! :)

  14. Diana Spechler has a new book out? Yippee!!

  15. Love the cover of the Paris book. Happy reading!
