Monday Mailbox

My mailbox has been overflowing but as much of what has arrived is under consideration for something special, I am going to have to be coy and not disclose them. However, I am still receiving books that are not a part of this which I can share. And this week there was a delightful looking trio of them. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Paris Is Always a Good Idea by Nicolas Barreau came from St. Martin's Griffin.

With a small post card shop, wishes written on these cards and fluttering from the Eiffel Tower, the artist and a children's author collaborating, and an American professor accusing the shop owner of plagiarism, this sounds completely charming and wonderful.

Rare Objects by Kathleen Tessaro came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I quite liked Tessaro's last novel so I am looking forward to this one about two young women in Boston who met in a psychiatric hospital, landing there for their unladylike desires, and the continuation of their friendship, which crosses class boundaries, after they leave the hospital.

The Tsarina's Legacy by Jennifer Laam came from St. Martin's Griffin.

A double stranded narrative tying Catherine the Great and her lover Grisha Potemkin with their descendants and addressing fascinating political situations, both past and present, this looks fascinating.

If you want 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. Oooooo...they all look good.

    Paris is A Good Idea is especially enticing. Rare Objects should be the cover.

    I received The Tsarina's Legacy too. It was a surprise.

    ENJOY your reading week.

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.
