Mailbox Monday - 1/30/2017

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.
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 administrators:

THANKS to everyone for keeping Mailbox Monday alive.
I hope you had a good mailbox.
On Wednesday, January 25, I received:

1.  THINGS WE HAVE IN COMMON by Tasha Kavanagh, courtesy of Emer Flounders, MIRA BOOKS, Harper Collins.

This was a surprises.

On Saturday, January 28, I received:
1.  THE LAST NIGHT AT TREMORE BEACH by Mikel Santiago, courtesy of Mirtha Pena or Simon and Schuster.

A surprise book, but Amazon says for fans of Stephen King.  

Stephen King isn't a favorite of mine, though.  :)  We will see.


  1. I'm curious about The Last Night. Hope you discover new authors with your new books.

    1. They both are new authors.

      I am hoping The Last Night isn't too scary. Not sure when or if I will read it.

      Thanks for stopping, Laura.

  2. Love the covers on both of these. Hope you enjoy them.

  3. How wonderful to get surprise books! So much fun! Have a great week :)


    1. It is fun to get surprise books.

      Thanks for stopping, collettakay.

  4. Hi Elizabeth,

    I like the sound of 'The Last Night...' more than the other one. However, as the author is Portugese and all the biographies about him are written in Portugese and Spanish, I am guessing that this book might be a translation (although I can't be sure) and that doesn't make it such an attractive proposition.

    Still, it is always good to receive surprise books!

    Have a great week :)


    1. I have to see about The Last Night...I don't like Stephen King, but I will give it a try.

      Yes...surprise books are such fun.

      Thanks for stopping, Yvonne.

  5. Nice mailbox for you, enjoy!

  6. Fun to get surprise books! Hope you love them both.

  7. Both of these seem a bit dark. I'll be interested in your thoughts. Happy (I hope) Reading!

    1. Things We Have in Common was dark and odd.

      Not sure I will read the other one as it is compared to Stephen King's books.

      Thanks for stopping, Martha.

  8. I've heard good things about The Last Night at Tremore Beach (though in French translation), and I really want to read it too. I hadn't heard the comparison to Stephen King though, that intrigues me more!

    Happy reading!

    1. Interesting...I didn't know it was a French translation.

      LOL on Stephen King...he is not an author I read.

      I may give it a try, though.

      Thanks for stopping, Kay.
