Mailbox Monday ~ March 23rd

WelcomeBirdhouseMailbox-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.

A few new arrivals this week… along with yet another few inches of snow. Gardening, flowers, and veggies feel like they are still a million miles away. The robins and cardinals are singing their mating songs despite the nasty weather, so there is hope for spring arriving sometime soon.

New Arrivals


Genuine Sweet by Faith Harkey from AmazonVine.
Twelve-year-old Genuine Sweet, of tiny Sass, Georgia, can grant any wish . . . except her own. It’s a peculiar predicament, considering how much she could use a few wishes. New friends help Genuine give her family a boost–and then she takes her gift global!

Miramont’s Ghost by Elizabeth Hall, a win from 100 Pages A Day.
Miramont Castle, built in 1897 and mysteriously abandoned three years later, is home to many secrets. Only one person knows the truth: Adrienne Beauvier, granddaughter of the Comte de Challembelles and cousin to the man who built the castle.

Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own by Kate Bolick from Crown Books.
“Whom to marry, and when will it happen—these two questions define every woman’s existence.” So begins Spinster, a revelatory and slyly erudite look at the pleasures and possibilities of remaining single. Using her own experiences as a starting point, journalist and cultural critic Kate Bolick invites us into her carefully considered, passionately lived life, weaving together the past and present to examine why­ she—along with over 100 million American women, whose ranks keep growing—remains unmarried.

TheBooksellerStill time to enter the giveaway for The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson…

A provocative and hauntingly powerful debut novel reminiscent of Sliding Doors, The Bookseller follows a woman in the 1960s who must reconcile her reality with the tantalizing alternate world of her dreams.

Enter on or before March 25th. Continental US addresses only.

How was your week?
