Mailbox Monday

I don't know that these all came in the past week as we were on vacation part of the week prior as well. But it's been a pretty happy week book-wise. And since these are dry rather than wet, well, that's cause for celebration around here. I could only imagine the irony if they'd been left out in the rain for days while we were gone.

The Imposter's Daughter by Laurie Sandell from Hatchette

No Mad by Sam Moffie from the author

Secrets to Happiness by Sarah Dunn from a contest win at Bookin' With Bingo

Across the Pond by Storyheart from the author

Baking Cakes in Kigali by Gaile Parkin from Random House

The Boy Who Harnassed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer from William Morrow

For those who regularly read my Monday mailbox posts, a quick question. Do you like having the books linked to the amazon reviews or should I not bother with that? On weeks when there aren't so many books to list I don't mind cutting and pasting the info but it seems like that would make the post too long some weeks (and yes, I recognize the irony in me saying a post is too long, queen of rambling that I am). Or do you prefer the weeks where instead of info about the book, I post why I am eager to read them?

As always, if you'd like to check out the goodies that other people found in their mailboxes, check out The Printed Page where Marcia kindly hosts this meme every week.


  1. I really loved The Impostor's Daughter, enjoy!!

  2. I like the links to Amazon and I want to know why you're eager to read the book. I got The Impostor's Daughter too and I read a few pages when it came and it looks so good - I can't wait to dive into it. The video for The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind made me cry.

  3. That Secrets to Happiness cover is just too cute. I keep seeing around.

  4. I love the cover to Across the Pond. Amazon links are good if you don't mind posting them.

    Have a great week and happy reading. My MM is here

  5. Looking forward to your thoughts on these. I also received Secrets to Happiness. Enjoy your new books!

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