Monday Mailbox

I didn't manage to get my mailbox posted last week so this is two week's worth of wondrous goodies. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Having enjoyed The Financial Lives of Poets, I am looking forward to this Italian set Hollywood movie making story.

The End of the Point by Elizabeth Graver came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

A novel spanning 50 years and about three generations of family who summer on the coast in Massachusetts, this promises to be epic in scope.

Life After Life by Jill McCorkle came from LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

Anything McCorkle writes is gold. And how marvelously appealing is a novel populated with characters in a retirement home?

The Abundance by Amit Majmudar came from Metropolitan Books.

I do love books about Indian-American immigrants. Combine that with a tale about a daughter wanting to learn her mother's cooking before it's too late and this should hit all my sweet spots.

All You Could Ask For by Mike Greenberg came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

A novel about women and friendship, I'm very curious to see how a male author handles this one.

When She Was Gone by Gwendolen Gross came from Gallery Books.

A missing teenaged girl and the secrets her neighbors keep, this one could cause me never to let my children out of my house again.

Heart Like Mine by Amy Hatvany came from Washington Square Press.

A woman who never intended to have children gets engaged to a father of two and has to build a life with a whole new family when the children's mother subsequently dies. I imagine this one will be fraught with difficult emotion.

And Then She Fell by Stephanie Laurens came from Avon and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

An historical romance about a woman with a talent for preventing ill-suited marriages must find a bride for one man whose match she broke up, this should be a different take on the matchmaking plot.

The Lass Wore Black by Karen Ranney came from Avon and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

The Scottish Highlands, a doctor disguised as a footman, and a damaged heroine, what more could a reader want?

Skinny Bitch in Love by Kim Barnouin came from Gallery Books.

With a title like this, how could it be anything but spectacular? Make it a romance between a vegan chef and a steakhouse owner and this romance should really cook.

If you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Chaotic Compendiums 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. Wow, what a great mailbox! We got a lot of books in common. Life After Life looks really good - too bad there are two books with that title coming out around the same time.

  2. Enjoy your the covers of THE END OF THE POINT and THE ABUNDANCE.

  3. What a great selection of books! I have started All I Ever Wanted and it is very good - definitely recommend!

  4. I got The End of the Point this week too. I have heard both good and bad about this. I am starting it tomorrow, so I will see what I think. The cover is so relaxing.

  6. I'm eagerly awaiting Heart Like Mine...and I love the look of When She Was Gone.


  7. Lots of good reads, enjoy!

  8. Some interesting reads, and yes that one about the kids and neighbors would cause me to not let my children out either.


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.
