Monday Mailbox

I can't even begin to tell you how giddy I am by the treasures that magically appeared at my house this past week.  Per usual, they run a very wide gamut of types of writing but they should all bring me hours of happy immersion between their covers.  This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Turning Pages by Tristi Pinkston came from the author.
A YA take on Pride and Prejudice set in a library, how could this not be appealing?
The Lighthouse Road by Peter Geye came from Unbridled Books.
I completely and totally adored Geye's first novel Safe From the Sea so much that I have not yet stopped trying to foist it on every reader I can find even two years later so I have been eagerly anticipating this newest novel set outside Duluth about both a single young immigrant woman in the 1890's and her son in the early 1920's.
Parlor Games by Maryka Biaggio came from Doubleday.
A novel loosely based on a real life con artist who insinuates her way into high society and who travels the globe closely trailed by a Pinkerton detective, this sounds like it will be a marvelous ride through impressive schemes and capers.

Moranthology by Caitlin Moran came from Harper Perennial.
A collection of columns from Moran, who is billed as an hilarious comic writer, I'm looking forward to some good laughs.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Monday Mailbox as she is hosting this month's Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
