Mailbox Monday: March 12, 2012

It's Mailbox Monday time! Mailbox Monday is going on tour and March is being hosted by the lovely Anna of Diary of an Eccentric! 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!


Man, oh man did I have a busy weekend! Do you ever need another weekend, just to rest up from the one you just had?! My mom and grandma were visiting this weekend and together with a group of my girlfriends we went wedding dress shopping and I am proud to say that I am the new owner of my dream wedding dress ... or I will be when it arrives in a few months. I am so excited to have found it and I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day! Woo hoo!


But we are supposed to be talking about books right? Ok, so here's what came in the mail this week:


From Harper for an upcoming TLC Book Tour:
1. The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani




















From Crown for an upcoming TLC Book Tour:
2. Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton




















From the Publicist:
3. Calling Invisible Women by Jeanne Ray




















What did you get?

  3. Congratulations on finding your wedding dress! I can't wait to see pictures! I'm eager to hear your thoughts on the new Trigiani. She's a hit or miss author for me, but I've heard this new novel is a departure. I'm also doing the tour for Afterwards and cannot wait to dive in! I really enjoyed Lupton's first novel!

  6. Hurray for finding your Wedding Dress (shouldn't it be capitalized?) I'm so happy for you. It makes it all seem so real, huh?

    What great books you have. I'm positively green with envy for The Shoemaker's Wife. I love Andriana and the cover is just magic.

    Yay, again for you Wedding Dress.

  15. By pure chance i walked into a half price off day at a thrift store and found a leather bound, anthology of all of Jane Austen's works! For 3.00! It even has the original silk book mark woven into it. Perfect conditon! i also orderd a new cozy mystery or two from ebay (free shipping!)-Tempest in the Tea Pot and The Walled Flower. BY Lorraine Bartlett -A FAB WRITER-who does the Booktown mystery series which i devoured in one week it was so good, happy reading all!
