Mailbox Monday ~ March 31st

SpringBirdsFenceMailbox-smlWelcome to Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia of To Be Continued, a place where readers share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.

Yesterday the weather finally warmed up so I took my books outside for a photo to take advantage of the natural light, but the background ended up dull and, well, dead. In another month or so the perennial garden will be back and so will the color. Later today I will be putting my audiobooks to use while I begin garden cleanup.

This was a busy week for my mailbox with an assortment of print books plus a few audio downloads. Here’s what arrived:

New Print Books


That Summer by Lauren Willig from St. Martin’s Press.
From modern-day England to the early days of the Preraphaelite movement, Lauren Willig’s That Summer takes readers on an un-put-downable journey through a mysterious old house, a hidden love affair, and one woman’s search for the truth about her past—and herself.

The Here and Now by Ann Brashares from Delacorte Press.
An unforgettable epic romantic thriller about a girl from the future who might be able to save the world … if she lets go of the one thing she’s found to hold on to.


Monday, Monday by Elizabeth Crook from FSB Associates.
On an oppressively hot Monday in August of 1966, a student and former marine named Charles Whitman hauled a footlocker of guns to the top of the University of Texas tower and began firing on pedestrians below. Monday, Monday follows three students caught up in the massacre.

Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen from LibraryThing.
From the New York Times bestselling author of Garden Spells comes a novel about heartbroken people finding hope at a magical place in Georgia called Lost Lake.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart from Delacorte Press.
A beautiful and distinguished family. A private island. A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy. A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive. A revolution. An accident. A secret. Lies upon lies. True love. The truth. We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.

    I’ve seen a couple of your books on several blogs – it has to be that they are that good. Enjoy them all and have a good week.

    I enjoyed Lost Lake and hope you do too. Enjoy all of your books.

    Love those birds on your mailbox! Some lovely looking reads there – That Summer looks particularly interesting.
    Hope the garden cleanup doesn’t go on for too long 🙂

      My poor garden is a mess! This winter was brutal, the worst in over 30 years.


  4. Mary / Mar 31 2014 5:26 am

    Everything is brown up here too – at least it’s not white, LOL. Enjoy your new books!


    • Leslie / Mar 31 2014 8:53 am

      Not white is a very good, and positive, way of looking at it!

    I too have seen a couple of your books on other blogger sites. Hope you all enjoy them. I’m envious, of your yard clean up. I’m still shoveling snow. I must say though, I shoveled the snow off the pond the other day, so the birds could take a better bath. They were having a hard time fitting into that little hole the de-icer leaves..


    • Leslie / Mar 31 2014 8:53 am

      I seriously hope we are done with snow although I know we are not done with the cold. Today is going to be the only nice day this week.

    I am so excited about the release of Waiting for Wednesday…and in some parts of the world, the next one is available too! (Thursday’s Children).

    We Were Liars looks intriguing…thanks for sharing, and enjoy. Here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES


    • Leslie / Mar 31 2014 8:51 am

      I don’t understand why the release dates are sooo far apart in different parts of the world since the economy is global today. I was able to get an advance of the UK version of book two in 2012, but then had to wait two years to get book three! I didn’t even realize book four was out yet.


  7. Lucy / Mar 31 2014 10:18 am

    You did have a fruitful mailbox! We Were Liars is one I’m eager to read this month. Lost Lake and The Here and Now are also on my radar. Happy reading and listening!


  8. sagustocox / Mar 31 2014 12:09 pm

    Looks like a good stack of books.


  9. mary Ann Langan / Mar 31 2014 2:04 pm

    Nice stack of reads, enjoy!


  10. Vicki / Mar 31 2014 5:27 pm

    I’ve had my eye on Lost Lake. I hope you enjoy all your new books!


  11. stacybuckeye / Mar 31 2014 7:32 pm

    So many great books! I want to read them all!
    I checked in to Bloglovin today and saw that I had 16 unread posts of yours 😦 Last week was spring break for Gage so I zero time. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to (but I might not comment on them all) 🙂


    • Leslie / Apr 1 2014 12:24 pm

      No problem! That happens to me too. And then I wonder where the week went!


  12. Elizabeth / Mar 31 2014 7:45 pm

    Nice mailbox.

    I received Lost Lake too. So many people have been raving about it. I am looking forward to reading it.

    Have a wonderful reading week.

    So many of these are enticing! I’m thinking I need to get a copy of Lost Lake. 🙂
