Mailbox Monday: July 18, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and July is being hosted by A Sea of Books! 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!

The weather here in San Francisco wasn't very nice this weekend but I didn't let that get me down! I kept busy with lots of fun activities. Saturday I met up with girlfriends for lunch and manicures. I am typing this with some of the prettiest nails ever! Sunday a girlfriend and I went and painted some pottery while my boyfriend made homemade beer - yum! Hope you all had fun weekends too!

Another week, more great finds in my mailbox. Here's what came in:

From Crown Publishers for a TLC Book Tour:
1. Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto

From Atticus Books:
2. The Great Lenore by J. M. Tohline

From Skyhorse Publishing:
3. Simpler Living by Jeff Davidson

Purchased by me at Books Inc:
4. A Visit from the Good Squad by Jennifer Egan

5. Deadwood by Pete Dexter

From PBS:
6. The Embers by Hyatt Bass

7. How to Bake a Perfect Life by Barbara O'Neal

What did you get?


  1. I so like the look of that first book :) Enjoy all of them!

  2. I have been dying to read A Visit from the Good Squad - it's supposed to be great!
    How to Bake a Perfect Life has a cute cover :)

    Hope you enjoy all the books!

  3. Great mailbox this week! I've seen Before Ever After on a lot of blogs lately, and I'm definitely intrigued. Goon Squad is currently sitting on my TBR pile. Heard it's good too. Enjoy!

  4. I look forward to your review of A Visit from the Good Squad. I've been on the fence about it. I know it's fantastic, I just don't know if it's for me. Great mailbox.

  5. Simpler Living interests me. It is a new to me title that I will surely be checking out.

  6. You got quite the variety of books! I'm curious about Deadwood. I heard Pete Dexter speak a few years ago and he is quite a character!

  7. Before Ever After looks really good and so does How To Bake A Perfect Wife

  8. I love the cover of Before & After. Simpler Living looks good too and one I'm interested in hering more about. Hope it's good. (although I doubt that simpler living includes pretty nails ;))

  9. I have Before Ever After, too. Looking forward to your thoughts on it. Enjoy all your new books!
