Monday Mailbox

Home from my vacation and there was quite a generous stack of books waiting for me. Opening those packages beats the tar out of unpacking any day of the week and twice on Sunday. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

The Color of Tea by Hannah Tunnicliffe came from Scribner.
I've already reviewed it here.

The Black Isle by Sandi Tan came from Grand Central Publishing.
I do have a very obvious fondness for books set in East Asia so this novel about a Chinese girl who can see ghosts on Black Isle should capitalize on that interest.

Imperfect Bliss by Susan Fales-Hill came from Atria.
A modern set sort of Pride and Prejudice complete with a reality tv show? Oh my! Be still my beating heart.

Following Atticus by Tom Ryan came from Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
Inspired by the death of a friend, Ryan decides to climb mountains with his miniature schnauzer at his side to raise money for charity. As the mother of two schnauzers myself, how could I not be interested in this book (although neither of my two couch ornaments would be likely to climb mountains)?

The Bride Wore Pearls by Liz Carlyle came from Avon Books and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
I don't know why exactly but I do love romances that have secret societies within their pages. So I'm looking forward to this one.

Ten Girls to Watch by Charity Shumway came from Washington Square Press.
A young woman who is on the cusp of her whole life lands a job writing an article about the previous winners of a magazine Ten Girls to Watch contest and finds herself a whole load of role models. Sounds totally delectable, doesn't it?

As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit 5 Minutes for Books as she is hosting this month's Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. I'm on the blog tour for The Bride Wore Pearls. It was different from other historical rom. I've read. Enjoy all your new books!

  2. You have such a gorgeous pile of mixed reads. Enjoy them all.


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.
