Mailbox Monday



Mailbox Monday is kindly hosted each week by Marcia at the Printed Page. Anyone can play along. Just leave a link to your MM at Marcia's blog and visit listed links to see what others received in the mail. It's always fun to see what books are making the rounds of mailboxes around the world. Caveat: reading MM can cause your TBR/wish list to grow exponentially. I think I could cover the great wall of China with my list! Here's what's new:
Monday
  1. North! or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson from Multnomah for blog tour Aug. 11th
  2. The Lie by Fredrica Wagman from FSB for review
  3. The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood from SA

  1. Tuesday:
    1. The Sweetgum Ladies Knit for Love by Beth Pattillo for Waterbrook/RH blog tour 08/24/09
    2. The Rose House by Tina Ann Forkner for same tour
    3. The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y'Barbo for same tour

  13. Great load of books Kaye! I'll be reading Year of the Flood as well. I picked the one that's supposedly the prequel to it the other day -I think it's called Oryx and Crake (don't quote me on that though-lol) to read first. The cover on Rose HOuse is absolutely beautiful!

  15. 6 books in one week is going to keep you busy. I'll be interested to kow what you think of the Atwood. I never could read her. Too close to home-I live with her characters.
    Thanks for your input on review rating. The pick up/put down factor is interesting.
