Mailbox Monday July 13

A big thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for hosting this fun meme. Check out her blog to see what everyone else got last week or to play along.Β  I had a crazy week last week – this is what I found in my mailbox:

    You’ve got some good stuff there. I really enjoyed Cutting Loose. The cover made me think it was a questionable read to me , but I really enjoyed getting the to know the three characters and was happy to see that it had more depth than the cover suggested.

  2. July 13, 2009 6:39 am

    I really loved The Impostor’s Daughter, so fun! Enjoy your books!

  3. July 13, 2009 6:55 am

    I loved WATER FOR ELEPHANTS and have a copy of SWIMSUIT waiting for me to read.

  4. July 13, 2009 7:10 am

    Looks like your stack is getting ready to tumble! I’m so jealous about the Algonquin ones!

  5. July 13, 2009 7:19 am

    What a great week. I got several of the same books.

  6. July 13, 2009 7:20 am

    Your mailbox is full again πŸ™‚

    I loved Water for Elephants. And I’m really interested in Wicked Plants. Hope you enjoy all the books Kathy.

  7. July 13, 2009 7:21 am

    I resisted Water for Elephants for awhile (it just didn’t sound like something I’d like)…but I loved it!! Enjoy!

    And, I’m insanely jealous that you have your hands on the new Pat Conroy!!

  8. July 13, 2009 7:40 am

    Great bunch of books!

  9. July 13, 2009 7:44 am

    Oh, I see Water for Elephants on that stack πŸ˜€ I still think about that book, and there’s an older man who goes to my church that makes me think of old Jacob from the book. I wonder if Charles, the man from church, had an interesting life, too.

    I’m looking forward to reading your review of Cakes in Kigali. It’s on my wishlist.

  10. July 13, 2009 8:08 am

    Hey, what happened to Wednesday? ha ha
    You had a fabulous week!! Water for Elephants is a wonderful read. Enslaved by Ducks…now that’s an intriguing title.

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

  11. July 13, 2009 8:14 am

    Wow! That’s a lot of books to get in one week. And a lot of fun reading judging from the titles.

  12. July 13, 2009 8:20 am

    A friend just gave me Water for Elephants, so I look forward to reading your review.

  13. July 13, 2009 8:28 am

    oh! You remind me – I was supposed to get a pkg and I’m wondering if it’s outside or at the neighbors… I enjoyed Water for Elephants, too.

  14. July 13, 2009 8:30 am

    Great books! Enjoy water for elephants! It really surprised me, in a good way!

    Happy Monday!

  15. July 13, 2009 8:31 am

    That’s an impressive stack of books Kathy! They all look interesting, Baking Cakes in Kigali has caught my eye.

  16. July 13, 2009 8:40 am

    What a haul you got. I have Water for Elephants and will be reading it for the Awards Challenge any day now. No books in the mail for me this week but I have enough to read in library books. Enjoy your books.

  17. July 13, 2009 8:45 am

    Water for Elephants is just the best!

  18. July 13, 2009 9:08 am

    Hmmm. WICKED PLANTS. Good thing BAKING CAKES is not a recipe book! THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND sounds like an incredible story. Enjoy!

  19. July 13, 2009 9:13 am

    Wow…you had quite a haul last week! I’ll be looking forward to your thoughts of Water for Elephants. Baking Cakes in Kigali also looks interesting…enjoy your new reads!

  20. July 13, 2009 9:14 am

    Another great book week for you. I actually have two of yours in my stack. Swimsuit looks like a good summer read. I’m also on the book tour for American Lion. I’m July 23. I’m looking forward to reading that one too.

  21. July 13, 2009 9:17 am

    You got great books in there! Happy Reading. I got only one.

    Mondays: Musings/Whereabouts

  24. July 13, 2009 9:48 am

    Wow — incredible haul! I am looking forward to hearing what you think of Water for Elephants.

  25. July 13, 2009 10:03 am

    Hi again, thanks for visiting. I hope your hubby enjoys Swimsuit as much as my hubby did. I think he started it and hardly budged out of the recliner until he finished it. It’s a grabber! Enjoy

    Okay I for once can say Kathy I am so jealous. You got some really good books last week.

    I have Water for Elephants on my TBR pile.

    I read Swimsuit and loved it. Be prepared its a page turner.

    I have been hearing all kinds of good things about Imposter’s Daughter. Its on my wish list of books.

    Happy Reading.

  28. July 13, 2009 10:44 am

    What a lovely list of books! Baking Cakes in Kigali looks really interesting.

  35. July 13, 2009 1:04 pm

    Cutting Loose looks like a fun and relatively light chick-lit read! Might have to add that to my list of books to read.

    Looks like you had a great week!

  36. July 13, 2009 2:07 pm

    Wow! Great haul. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on so many of these.

  37. July 13, 2009 3:12 pm

  39. July 13, 2009 4:16 pm

    Ah, now that’s more like it! (A big pile of books again!) I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on The Impostor’s Daughter in particular (since it’s the only one I’ve read!).

  40. July 13, 2009 5:31 pm

    Super list of books — and a big week!

  41. July 13, 2009 5:36 pm

    Wow that’s a good amount of books. Lucky you to get some books that aren’t new releases. That’s always fun too. I got one book you got and one you mentioned that came in just this afternoon so will go on next week’s list.

  42. July 13, 2009 6:10 pm

    Awesome mailbox week!

  43. July 13, 2009 6:15 pm

    Ha much for last week’s smaller stack. πŸ™‚ Love your books. I have American Lion and I see that it is touring this summer. I haven’t read it and have plans to feature a review… so I am glad about that. I got the big Zero this week. I cut down on requests (begging) …. But gosh.. Monday rolled around and I got greedy…..

  44. July 13, 2009 6:21 pm

    What a haul! I can’t wait for your thoughts on these. Happy reading!

  45. July 13, 2009 7:20 pm

    I can’t wait to read American Lion.

  46. July 13, 2009 7:27 pm

    Enjoy all your goodies! Grab a spot on the porch swing, a glass of iced tea & happy reading!

  47. July 13, 2009 7:51 pm

    Great list, Kathy. I read and liked Water for Elephants and Cutting Loose.

  48. July 13, 2009 7:56 pm

  50. July 13, 2009 9:11 pm

    Wow!!! Your mailbox was good to you!!! Have fun with all of those great books!!

  51. July 13, 2009 9:51 pm

    “Cutting Loose” and “Water for elephants” are both books I’m interested in reading, but I’m curious about a few others too. It’s a good week of books you had! πŸ™‚

  52. July 13, 2009 10:15 pm

    WOW…you win for the most books last week LOL.
    Enjoy your loot! I LOVED Water for Elephants.

  53. July 13, 2009 11:44 pm

    You’ve got some good ones in your pile! I look forward to the reviews.

  54. July 14, 2009 1:20 am

    So many good books! I also loved Water For Elephants. While the topic is upsetting the story is so good. I look forward to hearing what you think about all of these books.

    Thank you for always being so kind and commenting on my blog, especially lately when I haven’t been around much.

  55. July 14, 2009 2:51 am

    I also have Water For Elephants, but haven’t read it yet. I can’t wait to hear what you think of South of Broad!

  56. July 14, 2009 11:33 am

    What an amazing haul you received this week! I have to ditto the sentiments about Water for Elephants, I loved, loved that book! My book envy this week is for The Impostor’s Daughter and The Weight of Silence πŸ˜€

  57. July 14, 2009 3:11 pm

    OOO! I want Wicked Plants! I loved the book trailer for it.

  58. July 14, 2009 3:24 pm

    Water for Elephants is a fantastic read if you can get past Marlena’s annoyances. Can’t wait to hear what you think!

  59. July 14, 2009 8:22 pm

    Okay how big is your TBR pile!?

  60. July 14, 2009 8:59 pm

    You won the lottery! The Algonquin titles are especially appealing to me, and I wondered about Harper’s THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND … I’ll look for your review.

  61. July 15, 2009 10:17 am

    Wow, what a great haul!!! I was really excited to pick up South of Broad yesterday from a Shelf Awareness offer πŸ™‚

  62. July 15, 2009 11:28 am

    I’m really looking forward to reading the new Pat Conroy and have been wanting to steal my dad’s copy of American Lion for months. Lucky you!

  63. July 15, 2009 10:11 pm

    Those are good mixture of books! Enjoy!

  64. July 16, 2009 9:38 am

    Another person who can’t resist gushing about Water For Elephants. I’ve read it twice and listened to the audiobook, which is pretty well read, in the car with my family.

  65. July 17, 2009 9:02 pm

    What a haul! And I just finished “Water For Elephants.” Fantastic book … I think you’ll love it.
