Mailbox Monday ~ March 30th

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.

Here’s what arrived last week…

New Arrivals


A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson from Little Brown.
The stunning companion to Kate Atkinson’s #1 bestseller Life After Life. Her new novel tells the story of Ursula Todd’s beloved younger brother Teddy–would-be poet, RAF bomber pilot, husband, and father–as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century.

Glamourpuss by Sarah Weeks from AmazonVine.
A sassy, delicious picture-book gem from award-winning author Sarah Weeks and Caldecott Medal winner David Small.

Audio Downloads


Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum from Random House Audio,
A striking debut novel of marriage, fidelity, sex, and morality, featuring a fascinating heroine who struggles to live a life with meaning—“a modern-day Anna Karenina tale.

So That Happened: My Unexpected Life in Hollywood by Jon Cryer from Penguin Audio.
If it can happen in show business, it’s happened to Jon Cryer. Now he’s opening up for the first time and sharing his behind-the-scenes stories in a warmly endearing, sharply observed, and frankly funny look at life in Hollywood.


Still time to enter the giveaway for…

TuskThe Tusk That Did the Damage by Tania James

A tour de force set in South India that plumbs the moral complexities of the ivory trade through the eyes of a poacher, a documentary filmmaker, and, in a feat of audacious imagination, an infamous elephant known as the Gravedigger.

Enter on or before April 8th. US and Canada only.

How was your week?

    So That Happened and Glamourpuss would both be welcome on my shelves 😉 I got two children’s safety books for review and then went shopping and have quite a list. You can find it here

    Have a great week

    Yay, new Kate Atkinson! Can’t wait to read what you think of this.

    Glamour puss was a cute one. Enjoy all.

    Looks like some lovely books. I’ve read mixed reviews on Hausfrau. I will look forward to your reviews.


  5. Mary / Mar 30 2015 6:45 am

    A God in Ruins is one I want to read. I loved Life After Life. Your audiobooks look terrific too!


  6. Mystica / Mar 30 2015 9:28 am

    The Atkinson is a new one for me. Looking forward to your thoughts on this one


  7. Lovely books! The John Cryer audio looks especially interesting. I’ve had great luck with those kinds of books on audio and I’ve loved him in every interview I’ve seen him in. I didn’t realize he had a book out. Enjoy your reads!

    I definitely want Hausfrau…and I’m curious about the Jon Cryer book.

    I love Kate Atkinson, but I didn’t love Life After Life…so I am on the fence with this new one.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    Ooh nice- the new Kate Atkinson! I’m on hold for the Hausfrau audio at the library. Hope you love it!

    Glamourpuss by Sarah Weeks looks fun, and I just love Jon Cryer


  11. Suko / Mar 30 2015 6:14 pm

    Enjoy your new goodies! I’m interested in the Jon Cryer memoir (I think he went to my high school).

    Oh my gosh, Glamourpuss looks adorable!


  13. Silver's Reviews / Mar 30 2015 8:32 pm

    I don’t know any of these titles.
