Mailbox Monday

February 21, 2011

Happy Monday! Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of The Printed Page and is being hosted by Laura of Library of Clean Reads during the month of February.   I think this meme is so much fun because I love seeing what new books everyone got last week.  Here’s what showed up in my mailbox:






Did you get any new books last week?

    The book that really stood out from that pile of yours is Jake by Audrey Couloumbis! It’s so blue. I have not heard of it, but I hope it’s good. 🙂
    Enjoy all those books you got there!

    Great books you got there. I do wonder what the woman is going to do with all those balloons. Is she having a birthday party and couldn’t she herself blow them up. I wonder… Okay, enough of that! Enjoy the books you got there and have a fab day today! lol.

    I do love seeing what new books everyone is getting in the mail! Gallaway’s book in particular interests me. I’ll be looking forward to reading your thoughts on it.

  19. February 21, 2011 9:56 am

    I think I am going to be reading Joy for Beginners soon as well, and it will be interesting to see what we both think of it. I have been thinking of you lately and wondering how you are doing. I hope all is well with you and I am hoping to have some time to pop you an email soon!

  20. February 21, 2011 10:11 am

    A wonderful selection of books this week. Joy for Beginners and Skipping a Beat were new to me, and both sound great from the descriptions.
    Hope you enjoy them all 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  31. February 21, 2011 1:16 pm

    I read The Metropolis Case in Jan and enjoyed it — but it had a diff feel toward the end of the novel which was nice – but made me wish the entire novel was in that vein. I can’t wait to see what you think of it!

  32. February 21, 2011 1:19 pm

    These all look like great books! Enjoy!

  33. February 21, 2011 1:20 pm

    I loved Erica Bauermeister’s first book…it was delicious.
    I love the way your books sort of come each day…enjoy!!!

    I see a couple that are on my radar. Looking forward to your thoughts.

  46. February 21, 2011 3:44 pm

    Great stack of books, I think Joy for Beginners is my favorite. Didn’t read all of the summaries. Out of the ones I did read Joy for Beginners stands out. Of course if you want to send me the whole pile of books that’s fine too.:)

  47. February 21, 2011 3:50 pm

    They all look good. Joy for Beginners is on my wish list.

  48. February 21, 2011 6:02 pm

    Your mailbox gave up some great stuff this week!!

  49. February 21, 2011 7:11 pm

    The new Shaun Tan, Lost & Found, looks good! I’ve enjoyed his previous books. Will definitely have to add this to my list!

  50. February 21, 2011 7:26 pm

    I got Mercy Creek too, enjoy your books.

  51. February 21, 2011 8:23 pm

    I don’t know what it is about but “Joy For Beginners” is such a great title.

  52. February 21, 2011 8:27 pm

    None of these are familiar but I hope you enjoy them! I didn’t get any new books last week but I got a few read that I needed to!

  53. February 21, 2011 8:41 pm

    Another nice stack of books this week. I got The Sandalwood Tree too. I’ve been getting into historical fiction lately.

    I’m hoping to get The Sandalwood Tree too. I liked her first novel.

  55. February 21, 2011 8:55 pm

  57. February 21, 2011 9:36 pm

    Thanks for checking out my Mailbox Monday! Looks like you
    really made out good this week!

  58. February 21, 2011 9:59 pm

    Wow, what a great selection of books! I’m immediately jealous of Skipping a Beat. I hadn’t heard of Emily and Einstein– the title grabbed me, so I took a look at it and will definitely keep an ear out for that one, it sounds great!

  59. February 21, 2011 10:21 pm

    Enjoy your new reads!

  60. February 21, 2011 11:22 pm

    It seems like you always get such a nice selection each week. I just want to know how you keep up with all of those books. LOL!
    I received 2 again last week.

  63. February 22, 2011 12:59 pm

    I got a copy of Joy for Beginners too, I can’t wait to dig in.

  64. February 22, 2011 3:39 pm

    Lots of good books as usual. I’ve got a few of those coming my way too!

  65. February 22, 2011 8:32 pm

    You got some great books! I have an eye on Joy for Beginners, so I can’t wait to see what you think!

  66. February 25, 2011 12:19 pm

    I’m really excited about Joy for Beginners. Happy reading!
