Mailbox Monday ~ September 9th

Lg-Gerbera_MailboxMailbox 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. Today’s linky is hosted at Beauty in Ruins as the scheduled September host is MIA.

Here’s what arrived last week:

Print Books:


Burial Rites by Hannah Kent from Little, Brown.
A brilliant literary debut, inspired by a true story: the final days of a young woman accused of murder in Iceland in 1829.

Art & Sole: A Spectacular Selection of More Than 150 Fantasy Art Shoes by Jane Weitzman, a win from Harper Design.
Art & Sole features in printed form for the first time Jane Weitzman’s selection of the best of this collection, approximately 150 shoes of the more than 1,000 she has discovered and commissioned for display since the first Stuart Weitzman retail shop opened in the mid-1990s on Madison Avenue.

    I’m curious about Burial Rites…enjoy your week! Here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES

    Art and Soul looks like a good coffee table book!

      I’ve already flipped through some of it and there are some seriously fun shoes in there!

    I was at a Hachette Book Event on Saturday, and everyone was saying how good Burial Rites is.

    I am going to read it next. I am not getting too much reading done, though, this week. I am out of town.

    Enjoy your new books.

      Glad to hear that about Burial Rites. Reading has been slow here too but I can multitask with audiobooks so I’m still listening.

    I have seen Burial Rites mentioned on several blogs. Looking forward to your review. Art and Shoes looks like a great book to peruse slowly and with a great cup of coffee, or maybe a great glass of wine. Enjoy!

      The shoes are pretty wild, I’m going with the wine!

    Burial Rites does look good. And shoes- how fun!


  8. BermudaOnion / Sep 9 2013 12:05 pm

    Both books look wonderful! I can’t wait to read your review of Art & Sole.


  9. Suko / Sep 9 2013 3:42 pm

    Two very different books–I hope you enjoy both of them!

    Oh, that’s the first finished copy I’ve seen of Burial Rites! It’s beautiful!!


  11. diane / Sep 9 2013 7:49 pm

    Art and Sole looks very cool. makes me curious. I do have Burial Rites.


  12. samstillreading / Sep 10 2013 5:47 am

    Gorgeous cover of Burial Rites! Enjoy!


  13. techeditor / Sep 10 2013 6:19 am

    I’m reading HEARTBROKEN by Lisa Unger and not liking it. It’s a soap opera, not what I expected of her at all.


  14. Mary / Sep 10 2013 6:48 am

    Ooh, what a great win! Have a good week, Leslie.


  15. Anna (Diary of an Eccentric) / Sep 10 2013 6:10 pm

    Burial Rites sounds so good! Happy reading!


  16. Louise / Sep 14 2013 5:23 am

    Interesting to see Burial Rites pop up on so many blogs. The author is Australian and this is her debut novel, it’s doing astonishingly well internationally. I haven’t read it yet. One of our local bookshops has a pile of them at the front with a little sign saying something like – Margaret can not recommend this book highly enough! The other book looks great fun.


  17. Elizabeth / Sep 16 2013 8:41 am

    I am reading Burial Rites. It is fantastic. Review will be up today or this evening.

    ENJOY your week and your books.
