Mailbox Monday - 11/11/13



 
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do).   
Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists!

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books, is on a blog tour!

  18. Last week I received two (yes two!) hardcover copies of Eleanor Catton's Booker Prize winner, The Luminaries, thanks to my editor at the 3G1B blog, where I occasionally write reviews. Also advance reader copies of The Bird Skinner by Alice Greenway and Carthage by Joyce Carol Oates. I am rich in books. Currently reading Hild by Nicola Griffith, set in 7th century Britain. Anyone a fan of The Mists of Avalon? It is in that tradition.

  26. Hi Elizabeth,

    It looks as though quite a few of us had lean weeks this time around.

    I guess that it is the time of year, at least here in the UK. Many of the pre-Christmas releases are biographies and the 'book charts' are suspended from mid-November, through to the New Year, so publisher pickings are quite lean.

    Your review of 'Once We Were Brothers' was amazing and very emotional and I already have 'Wake' on my wish list.

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week,

    Yvonne

  32. THANKS, Shoshanah.

    THANKS for stopping. I love WAKE's cover. I hope it is good.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wake looks really interesting. I am off to read your review of Once We Were Brothers - anything that gets read in one day must be good!

    ReplyDelete
