Monday Mailbox

One lone book this week but as I'm still behind, that was okay. Still the book that did make it was a welcome sight. This past week's mailbox arrival:

The Secret Lives of Dresses by Erin McKean came from Hachette.

The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship by Lisa Verge Higgins came from Hachette.

Being Polite to Hitler by Robb Foreman Dew came from Hachette.

Georgia Bottoms by Mark Childress came from Hachette.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Lady Q of Let Them Read Books as she is hosting this month's Mailbox Monday and Kristi at The Story Siren who hosts In My Mailbox and enjoy seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. Nice mailbox! One was in mine too :-)

  2. I got a couple of the same books and can't wait to dig into them! Happy reading!

  3. The Secret Lives of Dresses sounds really cute. Happy reading! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  4. I received for review Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz from the author.

    Twenty-four-year-old Aidin, a wealthy socialite and self-proclaimed "club god," lives a magazine life based on decadence and excess that includes drugs, sex, and gourmet food. It's a life based on surfaces in a place where the surface is all that matters. His therapist later describes him as a materialistic drug addict bent on promiscuity with self-esteem and identity issues.One morning, after a night of heavy partying, Aidin awakes completely vacant of any sensation. He can't feel temperature. He can't feel pressure. He can't feel anything. After a near-fatal stint in denial, he seeks the help of Dr. Paradies, a therapist whose methods are far from conventional. She provides him with a new addiction in the form of a life list--a litany of activities to accomplish. As Aidin completes his list, he discovers talents he never knew he possessed, such as the ability to quickly learn new languages, an IQ off the charts, and amazing physical stamina.With these new discoveries, he questions his doctor's intentions. When Aidin digs for the truth, will he slip back into his addictive habits? Or is there truly a conspiracy underway, as he suspects? The answer forces him to make a life-altering decision.

  5. We have a few books in common. I passed on Being Polite to Hitler so I will be curious to see what you think of it. The title and cover sure are interesting.

  6. All your books look really good. Georgia Bottoms definitely sounds like a zany read!

  7. What an awesome mailbox this week! Great books! If you haven't already, and if your interested, I'm giving away Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead right now. Have a great week!

  8. These all look fabulous! Happy reading! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  9. The last two books look intriguing!
