Mailbox Monday

May 30, 2011

Wow, another month has come and gone and here it is Memorial Day already.  I hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday.  This has been a busy month for me and June promises to be even busier, but it’s all good, so I’m not complaining.  Since it’s Monday, it’s time to take a peek in my mailbox!  Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A Girl and Her Books and is being hosted by Mari of MariReads this month.   Here’s what showed up  in my mailbox last week:




  • Skinny by Diana Spechler came from the author


Did you get any new books last week?

    Haven’t heard of any of these. Enjoy!!

  4. May 30, 2011 7:26 am

    These are all new for me but they all look neat. Enjoy your reading!

  5. May 30, 2011 7:49 am

    Oh, these look good! I’ve been wanting to read Promises to Keep, and The Upright Piano Player looks captivating. Enjoy your books!

    You got some good books this week. I have Upright Player Piano as well.

  7. May 30, 2011 8:32 am

    I hope they’re all great reads!

    You got lots of other new books last week too — I can vouch for that! 🙂

    Nice mailbox, Kathy! Amy Hatvany will be a featured author on Brava when her book launches. Happy Memorial Day, girlfriend!

  11. May 30, 2011 10:10 am

    I have a copy of SKINNY to read soon and I also got DON’T KILL THE BIRTHDAY GIRL. That one sounds really interesting. Enjoy your books, Kathy!

  12. May 30, 2011 10:14 am

    I also got Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl, and am really curious based on what I have heard about it. I think it’s not only supposed to be a story, but also that it’s filled with helpful tips about how to deal with those who have allergies. Should be very interesting. Great stack there, Kathy!

  13. May 30, 2011 10:15 am

    Great stack! I put in for Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl on Goodreads – we’ll see if I get it.

  14. May 30, 2011 10:26 am

    Great books in your mailbox! I’m looking forward to reading Best Kept Secret. I hope you enjoy them all.

  15. May 30, 2011 10:40 am

    Promises to Keep is great – although keep the tissues close at hand because it is a tearjerker! Enjoy!

  16. May 30, 2011 11:10 am

    This looks like a wonderful stack! I’ve seen Skinny around the blogisphere. Happy reading!

  17. May 30, 2011 11:15 am

    What a nice group of books, Kathy.
    I also received The Upright Piano Player by David Abbott! I love the look of this book!

    Enjoy your new books and I hope you have a nice Monday!

    I also got The Upright Piano Player a while ago, and it looks fabulous.

    Here’s mine:

  21. May 30, 2011 12:48 pm

    Lots of bloggers got The Upright Piano Player this week! Enjoy all your new books! (I’ll be curious to see what you think of Skinny — I’ve read mixed reviews of it.)

    the HP lego kit looks like fun! i did score a few books this week, but still didn’t receive a cookbook i’ve been waiting (rather impatiently) for so i was a bit bummed. i can’t wait to see the goodies you reaped while in new york. one year i’m going to actually make it over the river and meet you guys in person! 🙂

  23. May 30, 2011 1:48 pm

    The Harry Potter Lego kit is just plain cool. I so want to get ahold of that. Have a great week.

  24. May 30, 2011 1:53 pm

    I’m reading Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl and it’s very interesting. Enjoy your June. Mine is going to be busy as well.

  25. May 30, 2011 2:08 pm

    Building the magical world? Cooool!

  26. May 30, 2011 2:09 pm

    Great books Kathy. Can’t wait to see your BEA books. I hope you will share those when they come.

    Enjoy 🙂

  27. May 30, 2011 4:00 pm

  28. May 30, 2011 4:20 pm

    Love Jane Green…I got the piano player one, too, although I am not sure about it…are you happy to be back home?

  29. May 30, 2011 4:44 pm

  33. May 30, 2011 9:01 pm

    I’m always amazed at how many wins you have via Twitter.

  34. May 30, 2011 9:42 pm

    Wonderful mailbox!! Have a great reading week. I received only one book in my mailbox!!

    Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings post!

  35. May 30, 2011 10:04 pm

    These all look like wonderful reads. I am also reading The Bird Sisters right now and loving it. I look forward to seeing what you think of it.

  36. May 30, 2011 11:54 pm

    Great books! My boys love LEGO books. I recently bought them a couple and my youngest reads them constantly.

    This looks pretty small considering you just got back from BEA 😉 Can’t wait to see your haul from there . I’ve already read about your party crashing and I’m interested in reading about your side of the story!

  38. May 31, 2011 1:05 am

    Wonderful selection. I will be quite interested in hearing your thoughts on SKINNY.

  39. May 31, 2011 1:05 am

    I have The Upright Piano Player too. That ones seems pretty popular this week.

  40. May 31, 2011 1:58 am

    You’ve got lots of great ones in there. Best Kept Secret is one I’ve been eyeing! Happy reading!

  41. May 31, 2011 11:48 am

    I’m so jealous of the Lego Harry Potter book – my kids would adore that! 🙂

  42. May 31, 2011 12:22 pm

    You keep having twitter wins and yet I don’t think I have ever seen a Twitter book giveaway. Perhaps I ignore them? Congrats on so many books!

  43. May 31, 2011 1:34 pm

    The Lego Harry Potter book sounds great. Enjoy all your new books!

  44. May 31, 2011 6:55 pm

    I want the Lego Harry Potter book! Have fun with all of your books.

  45. May 31, 2011 8:28 pm

    I’m reading Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl and so far so good!

  46. June 1, 2011 7:25 pm

    Ooooo, Lego Harry Potter sounds like fun!

  47. June 4, 2011 5:59 pm

    Promises To Keep was a really emotional read, I think you’ll enjoy it!

  48. June 6, 2011 7:37 pm

    SKINNY sounds like something I’d love to read. Can’t wait for your review. I’m currently reading Karen E. Olson’s INK FLAMINGOS, sent by the author. This book will be released today (7 June)!
