Mailbox Monday - 10/16/2017

 
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week.

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.

  7. I received White Bodies and The French Girl. I saw some interesting books you have coming up for review Elizabeth! I also have Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us. Excited for both!

    1. I have heard of WHITE BODIES but not THE FRENCH GIRL. I hope you enjoy them, Holly.

      I hope we both like the two similar ones we have. I think they will be very good.

      Thanks for commenting, Holly.

  8. Attractive cover and this sounds engaging. I was born near Philadelphia and raised a bit north near Amish country. I don't think I ever got to visit Pittsburgh. Happy Reading!

    1. You were raised in a nice part of Pennsylvania.

      Pittsburgh is a nice place to grow up too.

      Thanks for commenting, Martha.

  9. I have always loved your blog's banner. I can imagine hiking up the hillside and creating adventures for the inhabitants of that waterside village.

    Carnegie's Maid sounds fascinating. I've added it to my Amazon Wish List.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. That quaint town of Portree, Scotland, was a favorite trip.

      My son lived and worked in Edinburgh for a year. When I went to visit, we took a tour to The Isle of Skye and stayed in Portree. Loved it.

      The colorful houses were right along the water as you can see, and we had fresh fish for dinner. :) The only complaint was that it was 40 degrees in July. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Cheryl.

  10. This week I received the upcoming ‘Sleeping in the Ground’ by Peter Robinson, a digital copy of The Ghostwriter by Alessandra Torre and Yum and Yummer (cookbook) but Greta Podleski. The cookbook is awesome, I’m loving The Ghostwriter and can’t wait to crack open Robinson’s book (it’ll be my first book by him). Happy reading!
