Mailbox Monday ~ September 7th

PeacockMailbox-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.

Summer is hanging on and we are having a warm week — which is good because this is a holiday weekend in the US. Monday is Labor Day, a day off work for many. I’ll be volunteering in the morning at the bird shelter and then home for a little BBQ-ing and relaxing in the backyard, And maybe even reading a book.

Here’s what arrived last week . . .

Print Books


The Lake House by Kate Morton from Atria.
Living on her family’s gorgeous lakeside estate in Cornwall, England, Alice Edevane is a bright, clever, inquisitive, innocent, and precociously talented fourteen-year-old who loves to write stories. But the mysteries she pens are no match for the one her family is about to endue . . .

Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and LibraryThing.
From the New York Times best-selling author of The Drunken Botanist comes an enthralling novel based on the forgotten true story of one of the nation’s first female deputy sheriffs.

Broken Promise by Linwood Barclay from Bookreporter Summer Reading Contest.
. . . an explosive novel set in the peaceful small town of Promise Falls, where secrets can always be buried—but never forgotten . . .

Paradise Road: Jack Kerouac’s Lost Highway and My Search for America
by Jay Atkinson
from Turner Publishing.
In Paradise Road, Jay Atkinson sets out to re-create Kerouac’s journeys of the late 1940s, depicting the travels of the author and his longtime friends as they retrace the five major trips Jack Kerouac took with his pals.

How was your week?

    Such pretty books! I’ve been meaning to read The Lake House. Enjoy your Labor Day BBQ!

    The Lake House was in a lot of mailboxes last week. Hope you love it. We’re supposed to go to a BBQ this afternoon but we may get rained out.

    I got The Lake House too but my book cover is very different from yours. I’ve heard great things about Girl Waits With Gun. Enjoy the holiday!

    Finished The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah (3.25/4), read a memoir by Dinah Lin called Daring to Dream Once Again (2.5/4), and have 75 pages of Vanessa Diffenbaugh’s latest We Never Asked for Wings.

      I’m a little over half-way through We Never Asked for Wings. Loving the writing and the bird references/symbolism, but not liking most of the characters.

    I am so jealous…I want THE LAKE HOUSE. I love Kate Morton’s books.

    Have a great reading week.

    The Lake House is definitely on my WANT list!! I I haven’t heard of Girl Waits with a Gun but that’s intriguing to me. Must look fir it.

    I’ve enjoyed Barclay’s books in the past. Nice haul last week.

    Great selection! I’m seeing The Lake House around quite often, I may have to check it out. Happy Reading!

    Hi Leslie,

    I have all of Kate Morton’s books on my ‘Want To Read’ list, as having read ‘The House At Riverton’ and enjoyed it so, I couldn’t run the risk of missing out on any of her work 🙂

    I also entered a Goodreads Giveaway competition, to win a copy of ‘Broken Promise’, as I have admired author Linwood Barclay’s books for some time …. so, fingers crossed!

    Enjoy all of your books and the rest of the week 🙂

    I am really looking forward to The Lake House. ARCs are hot property here!

    I’ve read two Barclays and had two different reactions. Looking forward to your thoughts on this one.

    Great selection! Broken Promise and The Lake House sound like good reads to me. Happy reading!
