Monday Mailbox

The supplemental books are still rolling in. ::big grin:: This past week's mailbox arrivals:

To the Back of Beyond by Peter Stamm came from me for myself.

I have two friends named Thomas and Astrid so I was intrigued from the get go by this novel about a couple who hear their young son cry out and when Astrid the wife/mother gets up to go to him, Thomas the husband/father walks out of their garden and just leaves. Intriguing no?

Of Murder, Muses and Me by Claudia Chibici-Revneanu came from me for myself.

A publishing world mystery where a fan has to solve her favorite writer's murder, this looks delightful.

Third Son's a Charm by Shana Galen came from me for myself.

I do enjoy a good Regency set historical romance and this one about a stubborn Society miss and the noble younger son hired to be her bodyguard should be a fun romp in one of my favorite time periods.

The Amendment by Anne Leigh Parrish came from Unsolicited Press and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I have thoroughly enjoyed Parrish's other books (By the Wayside and Our Love Could Light the World) so I am looking forward to this one about a widow who meets a collection of people and reflects on her own past while on a road trip.

Root, Petal, Thorn by Ella Joy Olsen came from me for myself.

Don't judge a book by its cover, right? I do though and this is a beautiful one. The story, about 5 women who live in a historic home over a century, sounds fantastic.

All Over the Place by Geraldine DeRuiter came from me for myself.

A travel memoir written by a woman who shouldn't travel because she's a disaster, this looks like it will be hilarious and I can't wait.

The Wedding Beat by Devan Sipher came from me for myself.

I should sheepishly admit I've now bought this twice. I guess that's good because it means I definitely want to read it. About a man who writes the wedding column for a newspaper who meets the woman of his dreams at a society wedding, loses track of her, and only finds her again when he is set to cover *her* wedding, this does sound good, right?

Shining Sea by Anne Korkeakivi came from me for myself.

I do like sweeping stories about families and this one that starts with the loss of a father and husband looks really amazing.

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.
