Mailbox Monday - 2/24/14

 
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, has a permanent home now at Mailbox Monday.


 **********************
Every week Mailbox Monday will have a new linky posted for our Mailbox Monday links at Marcia's Mailbox Monday blog.

Here’s a shout out to the new administrators:

Leslie of Under My Apple Tree 
Vicki of I’d Rather Be at the Beach
Serena @ Savvy Verse And Wit 

THANKS to everyone for keeping Mailbox Monday alive.

I hope you had a good mailbox.  

My mom is still in the hospital so I will be in and out.  She had a stroke, and it is a long recovery.  THANKS for all the good thoughts over the past month.

  28. Hi Elizabeth,

    You need some 'down time' from hospital visiting occasionally, so relax when you can and settle into one of your great new finds.

    They all look excellent. I already have Lucinda Riley on my list, so I have made a note of this new title beside her name, together with 'The Orchid House' and 'The Lavender Garden', which are already there.

    The Andrew Gross book sounds right up my street and although he has been on the scene for quite some time, I have yet to read any of his work. I think that may be because I always associate his name with that of James Patterson, whose books I started to find a bit 'samey' and trite, so stopped reading them some time ago. Now that Andrew is authoring in his own right, I might well be tempted to see how his solo writing shapes up.

    Thanks for the recommendations, all Best Wishes to your Mum and family and take care of yourself,

    Yvonne

  32. THANK YOU, Yvonne.

    I hope you get to read The Lavender Garden...it was very good.
