Mailbox Monday - 11/16/15

 
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.

On Thursday, November 12 , I received:

1.  IN ANOTHER LIFE by Julie Christine Johnson, courtesy of Suzy Missirlian and Lathea Williams of Sourcebooks.

 
Is that cover gorgeous or what?

2.  JAMAICA INN by Daphen  Du Maurier, courtesy of Amelia Wood of William Morrow, Harper Collins.

 

Have you heard of this book by Ms. Du Maurier?  

I never did, but it sounds good.   Looking forward to reading it.

 How about your mailbox?   

Any titles in your mailbox that you were excited about seeing?

  5. I read Rebecca by de Maurier, and I was less than thrilled with it. I wonder if this is the better of her books....

  8. Good week for new books coming in.
    Not Dark Yet by Berit Ellingsen, an advance reader copy sent to me by the indie press Two Dollar Radio.
    Beauty is a Wound by Eka Kurniawan, an epic Indonesian novel. I bought it to support the Three Percent/Open Letter Books publishing house who bring translated literature to the US.
    Web of Angels by Lilian Nattel, an author I met on Goodreads.
    Question: Why don't library books count?

    1. I am not sure why library books don't count.

      Please ask the ladies in charge at: https://mailboxmonday.wordpress.com/

      Your books sound good, Judy. Thanks for stopping by.

    2. I did. I will let you know the answer.

    3. Yes please do. Perhaps I have to update my post if they say library books are counted. :)

      Thanks for checking.

    Can you believe I have yet to read anything by Daphne du Maurier?

    Enjoy your books!

  10. Hi Elizabeth,

    Both your books today, are ones which have 'done the rounds' and have made their way on to my 'Want To Read' list.

    I love Daphne du Maurier's writing and have read Jamaica Inn before, although it was when I was in my teens, so doesn't really count if I decide to read it again ... does it?

    'In Another Life' also sounds so good. I have read a couple of novels set in France and both have transported me to the country, with their descriptive writing, so I have high expectations from this book.

    Happy Reading

    Yvonne :)

    1. I am really looking forward to both books.

      You can re-read Jamaica Inn, and it will count. :)

      I can't believe I never heard of Jamica Inn when I LOVED Rebecca.

      Thanks for stopping, Yvonne. Always so lovely to see a comment from you.

  15. I haven't heard of either of these books, but both have really nice covers. I don't even look at book blurbs if I don't like the cover art. Hope you enjoy them.

    1. Totally agree...if the cover isn't appealing, I don't pick up the book.

      I am a cover snob. LOL!!

      Thanks for stopping, Cheryl.
