Mailbox Monday ~ June 24th

GerberaDaisyMailboxMailbox Monday was created by The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their home last week.

Mailbox Monday is currently on tour, hosted by a different blog each month. The June host is Bellezza @ Dolce Bellezza

Here’s last week’s new arrivals plus a couple of audio downloads to keep me reading while in the garden:

Print Books:


The Original 1982 by Lori Carson, a win from My Friend Amy.

The Original 1982 is the wise and memorable debut novel of love, regret, music and motherhood, by singer and songwriter Lori Carson of the Golden Palominos.

William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher from Quirk Books.

Inspired by one of the greatest creative minds in the English language-and William Shakespeare-here is an officially licensed retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon.


Two downloads for review from Penguin Audio:

Tao of Martha by Jen LancasterNo One Could Have Guessed the Weather by Anne-Marie Casey

The Tao of Martha by Jen Lancaster.

By immersing herself in Martha’s media empire, Jen will embark on a yearlong quest to take herself, her house, her husband (and maybe even her pets) to the next level—from closet organization to craft making, from party planning to kitchen prep.

No One Could Have Guessed the Weather by Anne-Marie Casey.

When Lucy Lovett’s husband loses his job, she is forced to give up her posh life in London and move their family to a tiny apartment in Manhattan, where her husband has managed to secure a lowly position.
