Monday Mailbox

We came home to several parcels in the mail, a few of which (surprise!) had books. I wonder if I should change the lyrics to the Twelve Days of Christmas to reflect all the books that have been sent given to me. ;-) This past week's mailbox arrivals:

My Father's Wives by Mike Greenberg came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

A novel about a man searching out his father's five ex-wives in an effort to understand the hole that his father's absence has left in his own life, this sounds fascinating indeed.

Girl Runner by Carrie Snyder came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

As we age and become frail, our past achievements are often all but forgotten so this book about a gold medal winning woman, now elderly and whose amazing accomplishment is mostly lost to time, is incredibly appealing to me.

The Girls of Mischief Bay by Susan Mallery came from MIRA and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Susan Mallery with a new series about three very different female friends and what they want out of their lives, especially personally? Well, yes please!

Aging With Grace by David Snowdon came from me to myself thanks to Christmas gift cards.

I am completely curious to read this book length study about nuns and Alzheimer's and the conclusions we can draw from the lives of these elderly women who have devoted themselves to caring for others.

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion came from me to myself thanks to Christmas gift cards.

I loved The Rosie Project and can't wait to get back to Don and Rosie.

Liam's Going by Michael Joyce came from me to myself thanks to Christmas gift cards.

Not only does the cover draw me in (water and boat=I'm a sucker) but the story of a child leaving for college for the first time is going to hit very close to home.

Peace Like a River by Carrie Leif Enger came from Melinda.

I'm participating in a Postal Mailbox Book Club and this is Melinda's choice for all of us to read. (I read this many, many years ago but will probably have to at least skim over it again to refresh my memory to make comments on it.)

If you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. I got \My Father's Wvfes as well and hope we like it!

  2. I've got a couple of those books as well. Girl Runner sounds so good to me - I'm anxious to get to it.

  3. I read Peace Like a River ages ago too, and have The Rosie Effect in my pile (to be read sooner, rather than later). My Father's Wives looks intriguing as well.

  4. Girl Runner was one of the books I noticed last week. Enjoy!

  5. It looks like you are off to a great start for the new year. Enjoy!

  6. Such interesting books! It's hard to decide which one I might enjoy the most, but maybe The Girls of Mischief Bay? Happy reading!

  7. Nice mailbox. ENJOY!!

    The Girls of Mischief Bay looks good.

    I see you have The Rosie Effect. If you want a chance to win another copy, I am having a giveaway for The Rosie Project, and The Rosie Effect on my blog. :)

    Happy Reading for 2015!!!

  8. I'm glad you got the book! I had a hard time finding a book you hadn't read (we apparently have very similar tastes!). Anyway, it is one of my faves and one I've re-read many times!


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.
