Mailbox Monday ~ August 11th

SunflowerMailbox-sml_IMG_2937_edited-2Welcome 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.

My mailbox was busy last week with an assortment print books and one audiobook. I was really excited to receive an advance copy of Horrorstör – it just sounds so clever; nevermind the actual horror of spending the night in a haunted Ikea-like store!

New Arrivals


Personal (Jack Reacher #19) by Lee Child from LibraryThing.
A breathtaking new thriller featuring the world’s most beloved vigilante hero, Jack Reacher.

First Impressions by Charlie Lovett from Viking.
Charlie Lovett first delighted readers with his New York Times bestselling debut, The Bookman’s Tale. Now, Lovett weaves another brilliantly imagined mystery featuring one of English literature’s most popular and beloved authors: Jane Austen.

The Devil in the Marshalsea by Antonia Hodgson. A win from Book Club Buzz.
A twisting mystery, a dazzling evocation of early 18th Century London, The Devil in the Marshalsea is a thrilling debut novel full of intrigue and suspense.


Zac and Mia by A.J. Betts from HMH Books.
Winner of the 2012 Australian Text Prize. The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Park in this tough and tender young adult novel that’s a lot about love (and a little about cancer).

Landline by Rainbow Rowell from Amazon Vine.
From the New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, comes a hilarious, heart-wrenching take on love, marriage, and magic phones.

Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix from Quirk Books.
A traditional haunted house story in a contemporary setting (and full of current fears), Horrorstör comes conveniently packaged in the form of a retail catalog, complete with illustrations of ready-to-assemble furniture and other, more sinister accessories. We promise you’ve never seen anything quite like it!

How was your week?

    I enjoyed Landline…and all of your new books look tempting! The display of them surrounded by the sunflowers makes them even more special. Thanks!

    Enjoy your new books! I enjoyed the Landline audio, and I’m eager to check out Zac & Mia. Happy reading 🙂

    First Impressions is catching my eye.

    Landline in audio should be good. I want to read that book.

    Devil in Marshalsea definitely looks very good. I love the title and I love 18th Century London.

    ENJOY your week.

    Nice haul! Is the Jack Reacher book ER? That’s a pretty lucky grab!


  16. kay / Aug 15 2014 2:48 am

    Oh, I didn’t know Charlie Lovett had another book coming out! And I still haven’t read The Bookman’s Tale.
    Also I heard great things about Zac and Mia. Enjoy your new books!

    I think Landline is the only Rowell book I don’t have . . . will have to look for it!


  18. stacybuckeye / Aug 15 2014 10:39 pm

    Thanks for reminding me I have a lot of Jack Reacher goodness in my future. I think I’m ready to read #10.
