Mailbox Monday

May 21, 2012

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia and hosted by Martha of Martha’s Bookshelf in May.   Last week was another busy week but I didn’t do anything all that exciting.  I did, however, find some exciting things in my mailbox.  Here’s what I got last week:





Did you find any goodies in your mailbox last week?

    You got very interesting books this week! People Who Eat Darkness, City of Women and A Hundred Flowers sounds particularly interesting.

  9. May 21, 2012 7:37 am

    That’s a great pile of books. I’ve read People Who Eat Darkness, so I’m really looking forward to your thoughts on that one. Suffice it to say, that was one of those books you just couldn’t get out of your head. Enjoy your new reads!

  10. May 21, 2012 7:50 am

    Third blog now that I’ve seen Sea Change on I am now officially obsessed with reading it myself.

  11. May 21, 2012 7:53 am

    City of Women looks good.

  12. May 21, 2012 8:00 am

    Wow! I have to have Sea Change….enjoy! I’m expecting Wallflower in Bloom next week, I think.

    Have fun! Here’s MY MONDAY MEMES POST

    Sea Change sounds interesting (thanks for the link) I can’t wait to savor Tsukiyama’s newest. Have a great week and happy reading!

  19. May 21, 2012 9:19 am

    I’m trying to figure out if People Who Eat Darkness is a true crime book or a novelization of the crime. If it’s the former, I may give it a try. Have a great week.

  20. May 21, 2012 9:22 am

    AH! New Ruiz Zafon! I’m so excited! I’ll have to get him as I completely adore his writing. The rest sound great, but new Ruiz Zafon! That’s something to celebrate. 🙂

  21. May 21, 2012 11:06 am

    Sea Change is popular this week- looking forward to your review. A Hundred Flowers caught my eye too. Happy reading!

  22. May 21, 2012 11:12 am

    Lots of great reads, A Hundred Flowers caught my eye.

  23. May 21, 2012 11:47 am

    You received some intrigung books this week! Sea Change, A Hundred Flowers and The Prisoner of Heaven look great! People Who Eat Darkness is a wonderfull creepy title. I haven’t looked it up yet but I’m guessing the ‘people’ are either victims or the ones hurting ‘people’.

    Enjoy, Kathy!

  24. May 21, 2012 11:50 am

    Such great books in your mailbox! Some of which I want to read. I looking forward to reading Sea Change.

    Your mailbox posts are the reason my wish list is rolling out the door and down the street because it’s so long. 🙂 Several of those titles look like they will be good. I can’t wait to read your thoughts on them.

    I am excited to see Carlos Ruiz Zafon has another book out. Yippee. I loved his SHADOW OF THE WIND.

    A HUNDRED FLOWERS and SEA CHANGE caught my eye too.

    City of Women is one that I’ve been hoping to get, so I guess I just cross my fingers and wait and see. 🙂
