Mailbox Monday ~ October 24th

AutumnChickadeeMailbox-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.


Happy Monday! The mild weather continues and we had a pleasant weekend. My begonia are still blooming and cheering up my backyard deck. I am not motivated to put away the yard furniture and take down the garden, but I know I’ll be sorry later when I have to do it in the cold.

New Arrivals


A Lowcountry Christmas by Mary Alice Monroe from Tandem Literary.
A wounded warrior and his younger brother discover the true meaning of Christmas in this timeless story of family bonds.

    A Lowcountry Christmas was in my mailbox too! Looking forward to your thoughts on the new Wally Lamb book. Hope you’re feeling better these days, Leslie. Our outdoor furniture is in the shed but we’re enjoying walks in the neighborhood on these gorgeous Fall days. I’m hoping for a long season.

    I thought A Lowcountry Christmas was great! We leave our outdoor furniture out year round down here.

    These all look very tempting. I love Mary Alice Monroe, and haven’t read a Wally Lamb book in a while. Enjoy! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    Interested to see what you think of the new Wally Lamb, having read only one of his previous books myself. I stayed up far too late last night to whip through The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Refreshingly out of any book formula I’ve ever read!

    A Lowcountry Christmas seems to be popular.

    Moonglow looks interesting.

    ENJOY your books and your reading week.
