Monday Mailbox

This is likely my last Monday Mailbox until next month as I won't be home to see what all arrives. But I am looking forward to coming home to another collection as good as this week's. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Valeria's Last Stand by Marc Fitten came from LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
The village grouch finds love. How can this not be an entertaining idea?

I Know I Am, But What Are You? by Samantha Bee came from Kristin at Gallery Books.
Personal essays by a comedian. This is so totally my cuppa that I can't wait!

Georgia's Kitchen by Jenny Nelson came from Gallery Books.
A chef destroyed by a scathing review, a cancelled wedding, and a trip to Italy to heal her heart and add to her culinary skill, this has all the ingredients of a fantastic food novel. Wonder what it'll make me crave when I read it?!

One Season of Sunshine by Julia London came from Ayelet Pocket Books.
I have liked London's historical romances so I was curious about a contemporary romance, especially one with a heroine searching for her birth mother and a recently widwed hero with two children.

And One Last Thing by Molly Harper came from Gallery Books.
Sometimes I just like to sink into a good chick lit. The fact that this one's heroine has the same last name as one of my children's second grade teacher has nothing to do with the appeal (okay, it does). But on top of the name, the main character finds out her husband is cheating, sends an ill-advised e-mail as a result, and has to retreat for some peace and quiet to her family's cabin. Sounds delightfully escapist, doesn't it?

One Day by David Nicholls came from Vintage.
A single day each year in the life of two very different people, this is incredibly intriguing sounding.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Marcia at The Printed Page and Kristi at The Story Siren and enjoy seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
