Mailbox Monday - 4/20/15

 
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 mailbox was WOW this past week!!

Quite a few goodies.  :) 

I had an empty mailbox last week and for many weeks so this definitely makes up for it.

On Monday, April 13, I received:

1.  THE LAST SUMMER AT CHELSEA BEACH by Pam Jenoff, courtesy of Emer Flounders of Mira Books.


2.  HOUSE OF HAWTHORNE by Erika Robuck, courtesy of Caitlin Valenziano of Penguin Random House.


3.  THE SHORE by Sara Taylor, courtesy of Penguin Random House in a Freedom Reads Giveaway.

On Tuesday, April 14, I received:

I love Karen White's books.  I am so looking forward to reading her newest book.

On Thursday, April 16, I received:

I will review the book in August and also have a giveaway.

 
2.  THE SECRET LIFE OF VIOLET GRANT by Beatriz Williams, courtesy of Kayleigh Clark of Penguin Random House for a blog tour in May.



I received TWO books so not sure if the other one came from a Shelf Awareness giveaway.

THANKS to both folks.

  2. Wow! A huge week or arrivals Elizabeth and quite a nice selection there. I'm wondering if I'm the only one who prioritises books in order of publication date? (Or if you go for your favourites first?)

  8. Hi Elizabeth,

    Wow! That's some mailbox this week ... Are you sure you haven't been saving them all up? LOL

    All of your author are new to me, with the exception of J.Frank James, as I also have a review copy of 'Dead Money Run' on my desk, although I am sure you will be reading and posting your review, long before me!

    I also like the sound of the Pam Jenoff and Erika Swyler books, definitely ones for my list.

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your week :)

    1. It looks like I have been saving them up. Tee Hee.

      I will be reviewing Dead Money Run in August along with a giveaway. And the way these months just fly by, it won't be too much longer.

      I love Pam Jenoff. I don't know Erika Swyler, but that book does look good.

      Thanks so much for stopping, Yvonne.

  9. Great books! There's so many pretty covers I don't know where to start. Pam Jennoff is on my list of authors to try and House of Hawthorne looks like my kind of book. Enjoy your reading!

    1. The Sound of Glass is awesome. I am on page 150. I love her books.

  16. House of Hawthorne looked so interesting to me, and so did Karen White's latest. I'm glad you have them to read; I was far too committed to the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize this year, and it's left little time for anything else. You will do these books justice!

    1. Karen White's book is great. I am loving it. I love all of her books.

      Awwww...thank you about the comment that I will do these books justice. What a wonderful compliment.

      Thanks, and thanks for stopping, Bellezza Mjs.

  17. We received a few of the same books. I'm enjoying the Karen White book but the wedding really slowed my reading. I'm about 50% in and hope to finish this week. Have a great week, Elizabeth!

    1. We did receive a few the same.

      Can't wait to see wedding photos.

  18. Happy reading this week; looks like you got some great reads! HOUSE OF HAWTHORNE is one that I need to get a copy of since I'll be moderating a panel at the local festival where she will be.

    1. Moderating a panel for an author sounds wonderful. Enjoy!!

      I am excited about my books. Love the covers too.

      Have fun on the panel, and thanks for stopping, Serena.

  19. I read The Secret Life of Violet Grant last year when it was first released and liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Romance isn't my usual genre, but I was drawn to the historical aspect and the dual timeline.

    1. Good to hear. I love historical fiction but am not a big romance person either.
