Mailbox Monday ~ October 21st

FloralFallMailbox-smlMailbox 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. Currently on tour, it is hosted by a different blog each month.

The October host is Book Dragon’s Lair.

Another busy week for me. I spent time doing everything but reading so it’s probably a good thing no new print books arrived in the mailbox. I’m always excited to receive more audiobooks as I’ve become a very good at listening while doing anything that doesn’t require total concentration. Three audiobooks arrived last week:



From Simon & Schuster Audio:

Red Hill by Jamie McGuire
Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you’d die for becomes the one who could destroy you?

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially challenged professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. And so, in the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.

Inherit the Dead, edited by Jonathan Santlofer
Told in the same “serial novel” format that made 2011’s No Rest for the Dead such a commercial and critical success, Inherit the Dead is a collaboration among twenty of today’s bestselling mystery and thriller authors—each taking a chapter of the narrative and infusing it with their signature style.

    I’m planning to finish The Signature of All Things tonight.
    I love The Rosie Project! Hope you enjoy it! Just wondering if the characters have Aussie accents on the audio?

    I read The Rosie Project in June. It’s been a huge book in Australia this year, so glad that it’s getting world wide success too. It’s a delightful, funny read, I hope you enjoy the audiobook, I’ll look forward to your review.
