Mailbox Monday- August 24, 2009

Mailbox Monday: Here's what came in my mailbox this week: (yes, I know I'm a day late!)


Thereby Hangs a Tail- Spencer Quinn --FrugalReader Book Ring (no cover yet)


Beastly- Alex Flinn--bought from bookcloseouts.com


Hate List- Jennifer Brown--from the publisher

Once Was Lost- Sara Zarr--from the publisher


Godmother- Carolyn Turgeon--from Read It Forward



  1. You got some great books in last week! Don't feel bad being late either..I was late for my Mailbox Monday last week..lol.

    Looking forward to your reviews :)

  2. Am I the only person in the world who feels Nicholas Sparks is seriously overrated? I cannot stand him. If he were a woman his books would be Harlequin romances, utterly dismissed as fluff by "serious" reviewers. And I say that as one with great affection fo (not to mention a onetime owner of a big library of) Harlequins! "Somebody Else's Daughter" looks interesting. I just finished the latest Mary Higgins Clark (can't remember the title -- they're all alike!), which was enjoyable. That was my fun fiction. My non-fiction book is a World War II memoir, "Abandoned and Forgotten," by Evelyne Tannehill. I had no idea Germans were thrown out of their home and lands by the East Prussians. The war orphans that results are called "Wolf Children" (something else I didn't know) and that's what this author is. Very interesting look at a forgotten/unknown chapter of WWII.

    And I'm eagerly awaiting the new Jacqueline Mitchard. I wonder if that will be Oprah's book pick? Her very first one was Mitchard's "Deep End of the Ocean," and this book is a sequel to that. I like the symmetry.

    Happy reading!
