Mailbox Monday - 11/30/15

 
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.

I am back from my fun Thanksgiving Day in New York.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

***************
On Tuesday, November 24, I received:

1.  THE FORGOTTEN ROOM by Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig, courtesy of Danielle Dill of Penguin Random House.

 

I am beyond excited about this book.  

Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig authoring one book can't be anything but FANTASTIC.

How about your mailbox?   

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

Books Completed The Last Three Weeks:

JAMAICA INN by Daphen Du Maurier

I didn't know Ms. Du Maurier had written this book.  I only knew of REBECCA.  Did you know?

Wonder where I have been since 1936?  :)  

My review is the book's title.

A terrific read.  Gothic and dark with wonderful description.

Have you read JAMAICA INN?

********************

The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  :)  They are books into and including all of 2015 and 2016.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.

A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel list. 

   
 
How was your reading week?
