Monday Mailbox

I received an interesting and unusual trio this week. And my husband discovered that the UPS man is in love with me. OK, not really, but he loves delivering to our house; I'm one of his best customers. As he said, he needs packages to deliver to stay employed and book packages are the best because they are light. Given the frequency with which he drops one of these off at my house, he is obviously in love with me, right? I thought so too. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

Queen of Hearts: The Wonder by Colleen Oakes came from Spark Press for a blog tour.

Fairy tell retellings can be amazing. This one where a princess becomes a villain rather than having good triumph sounds incredibly interesting.

The Story Hour by Thrity Umrigar came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

I have loved Umrigar's other works and this one about an Indian woman who tried to commit suicide, her psychiatrist, and the conversations they have should be phenomenal.

Gutenberg's Apprentice by Alix Christie came from Harper and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

A novel about the birth of the printing press and the forces pitted against it in the medieval world from the perspective of Gutenberg's apprentice? Oh my! Yes, please! This looks amazing.

If you'd like 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.

  4. Book shipments are only light if you keep them to just 1-2 books. When I worked at B&N, frequently shipments were in the 50 lb range!


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.
