Mailbox Monday: January 9th, 2011

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and January is being hosted by Alyce at  At Home With 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!


Phew, this weekend was busy busy! Maybe I am actually looking forward to go back to work to just sit at my cube? Ah, just kidding. Next weekend we have our engagement photos (so excited for those!) so this weekend we had to go shopping for coordinating (not matching!) outfits. That was mildly complicated. We also registered for some things while we were downtown to kill two birds with one stone. That was fun! We went out to dinner for a friends birthday, I went to a bridal fair on Sunday, and went to Mythbusters live! 


Ok, now for the peace and quiet that books bring! Here's what came in my mailbox this week:


From BlueBridge:
1. Queen Elizabeth in the Garden by Trea Martyn




















From LibraryThing EarlyReviewers:
2. No One is Here Except All of Us by Romona Ausubel




















From PBS:
3. The Girl on the Cliff by Lucinda Riley




















4. Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan




















5. How to be an American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway




















What did you get?

  7. Oooh, How To Be An American Housewife was one of my absolute favorite reads in 2010 (I almost wrote "last year," but that's not last year anymore!). Hope you enjoy it -- I was utterly enchanted by the story and couldn't read fast enough.
