Monday Mailbox

Don't you just love it when you find unexpected bounty in the mailbox? I surely do. And what a bounty it was this week, one much longed for, one based on an old favorite. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Laura Rider's Masterpiece by Jane Hamilton came from Hachette Book Group.
Domestic satire about a woman who decides to stop sleeping with her husband and then maneuvers him into having an affair with a radio host when she decides to write a romance novel.

The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees came from Lydia at Penguin and Amy Einhorn Books.
I loved Little Women so a book about a supposed love that changed Louisa May Alcott, paving the way for her to write the much loved book is one I can't wait to dive into.

Dancing With Jou Jou by Barbara Louise Leiding came from the author.
A scam artist and a love affair, this one sounds madcap and entertaining.

The Lunatic, the Love, and the Poet by Myrlin A. Hermes came from Trish at TLC Book Tours.
Hamlet, Horatio, and Shakespeare reimagined in a completely new and different way made me terribly curious about this one.

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Marcia at The Printed Page and enjoy seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.
