Mailbox Monday: February 20, 2012

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and February is being hosted by Metroreader! 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!

For all of those in those in the US who get a day off of work for President's Day like me can I just get a collective: Woohoo! Man, I needed a three-day weekend. I don't know what it is about having that extra day off but it helps so much! This weekend I thew my fiancee a Balinese themed birthday party in honor of our big trip last year and it was a blast! We made lots of yummy food and had fun with all of our friends who came! The rest of the weekend has been spent checking item soff of the wedding to-do list.

Now, onto the the books: 

From Bantam Books:
1. Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal





















From Atria Books:
2. The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose




















From Washington Square Press:
3. The House of the Wind by Titania Hardie




















Purchased by Me:
4. South American Handbook 2012 (because this is where we are thinking of going on our honeymoon!)




















What did you get?

  4. A South American honeymoon sounds divine! Where are you thinking of Argentia? Chile? Brazil? or someplace else? I think they all sound amazing! And congrats on the upcoming nuptials!

  8. A South American honeymoon sounds lovely! All your books sound very good. Just a regular day here. My daughter even had school. She was not a happy camper. Just down the road in the next state, they had the day off. Enjoy the end of your three day weekend.

  10. Trip planning is fun but overwhelming. But you are inspiring me to go check my copy of the 1000 places you MUST see before you die book - maybe I can offer some suggestions just to help make it hard to choose.
