Happy Monday and Happy Columbus Day (for my US readers). I had a busy week in my mailbox, which is very nice when I’m actually opening the mail. However, when I get to looking at my bookshelf, it gets quite intimidating. So, here is what I found in my mailbox last week:
Broad Street by Christine Weiser ~ sent by Philadelphia Stories
I have read some interesting information about this novel, so I decided to give it a chance. It’s about an all girls band, so I’m hoping that it will be a lot of fun.
Off the Menu by Christine Son ~ sent by the publisher
I received this book because I’ll be participating in the author’s TLC Book Tour in November. I love the title, especially for Thanksgiving.
The Witch’s Trinity by Erika Mailman ~ signed and sent by the author
Thank you so much, Erika! I am so thrilled to have a copy of this novel, as I originally rented it from the library. In case you didn’t know, there are three ways you can win a copy of this wonderful novel. Click here for the details.
A is for Atticus: Baby Names from Great Books by Lorilee Craker ~ unknown origin
I’m not sure how I received this book. I searched my email for a clue, but came up with nothing. It’s a fun baby name book, though. My baby naming days are over, but it’s fun to look up names of people you know. I can already say this would make a great gift for a mommy or daddy-to-be who loves to read.
Bedlam South by Mark Grisham and David Douglas ~ sent by the publicist
Marcia wrote an excellent review of this novel and I can’t wait to get started.
The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti ~ Sent by Lisa at Minds Alive on the Shelf
I won this book in her super awesome contest, even though I requested it using the wrong title. 🙂 Thanks for the great contest, Lisa!
My Lady of Cleves by Margaret Campbell Barnes ~ a gift from my co-worker
One of the contractors who works with us asked me to give him some book titles because he wanted to buy me a book for my birthday. Of the list, he selected this novel, which received rave reviews from Marg at Reading Adventures. I was so excited to open it. I can’t wait to read it. Anne of Cleves is such an interesting character to me.
