Mailbox Monday June 17

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued and hosted by Meredith of Dolce Bellezza this month.   What is going on with this crazy weather?  We’ve had so much rain, I was thinking of building an ark – thankfully the sun has finally come out around here.  Here are the books that showed up in my mailbox last week:






Did you find any goodies in your mailbox last week?

    Oh my gosh, I want to read The Boys in the Boat! 🙂 I’ve read his Under a Flaming Sky. It was an amazing book. Amazing.

    These are all new to me….I’ll be watching for your reviews. Enjoy! And thanks for visiting my blog.

    I remember people raving when Susan Gregg Gilmore’s last book was out- looking forward to hearing about her new one!

  11. June 17, 2013 9:51 am

    I only got the Gaiman, but that’s okay with me – I have way too many already! :–)

  12. June 17, 2013 10:07 am

    They all look wonderful!

  13. June 17, 2013 10:23 am

    Looks like a great stack. Enjoy! I got the Gaiman one too.

  14. June 17, 2013 10:37 am

    Sounds like you received some great books this week. Enjoy!

  16. June 17, 2013 11:56 am

    Saturday was one of the nicer days we had in awhile to, not too nice of a spring.

  17. June 17, 2013 12:21 pm

    Hi Kathy,

    The weather here in the UK isn’t much better than your own by the sound of things. ‘Flaming June’ certainly isn’t living up to its reputation so far!!

    You have another great selection of books this week and a couple of them really piqued my interest …. ‘The Funeral Dress’ and ‘The Shining Girls’ are definitely on my list and I shall look forward to reading your thoughts about them, if you decide to review.

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week.

    Such great titles! All new to me. Visiting all the MM posts is making me giddy with all the great books that are coming out this autumn.

  19. June 17, 2013 12:48 pm

    I just received Gameboard of the Gods & Boys in the Boat in the mail today. Excited to listen! I’m really interested in The Shining Girls too. Enjoy!

  20. June 17, 2013 1:38 pm

    The Village caught me eye, and love this last line in the synopsis “The Village deftly examines the limits of empathy, the slipperiness of reason, and the strength of our principles in the face of personal gain”. Hope you enjoy it!! Here’s My Memes Post.

  21. June 17, 2013 1:54 pm

    Nice mailbox, Kathy. I’m curious about THE BOYS in the BOAT. Happy reading!

  22. June 17, 2013 2:31 pm

    I’ve been not quite literally dying to get my hands on The Shining Girls and The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Lucky!

  23. June 17, 2013 2:36 pm

    I have seen good things about Mead

  24. June 17, 2013 2:51 pm

    Great haul! So excited for The Ocean at the End of the Lane. I really loved Gameboard of the Gods, hope the audio is a good experience for you!

  25. June 17, 2013 3:14 pm

    I really want to read The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Enjoy your books!

    I can’t wait to hear what you think of The Village. Enjoy your books!

  29. June 17, 2013 5:34 pm

    So jealous over the new Neil Gaiman – can’t wait to read your thoughts!

  30. June 17, 2013 6:14 pm

    I’m glad all the rain didn’t stop your book deliveries. I’m curious to learn more about The Village. Happy reading, Kathy!

  31. June 17, 2013 6:58 pm

    I am going to listen to The Shining Girls. The Neil Gaiman book is a must have.

  32. June 17, 2013 7:01 pm

    The Shining Girls is high on my list of books to read. My signed copy of Neil Gaiman’s new books should be arriving while I’m out of town this week. I CANNOT wait. 🙂

  33. June 17, 2013 7:21 pm

    The Boys in the Boat has sure caught my eye! Enjoy your new goodies!

  34. June 17, 2013 8:38 pm

    Great selection of books! The Funeral Dress is one I am definitely interested in.

  35. June 17, 2013 10:06 pm

    I saw somewhere that you were excited to receive the Gaiman. And I would be, too. Plus the Boys in the Boat.

  36. June 17, 2013 10:55 pm

    The Boys in the Boat is just delightful. I cannot recommend that one highly enough 🙂

  37. June 18, 2013 1:05 am

    I have to get that new Neil Gaiman book.

  38. June 18, 2013 1:52 am

    Busy week ahead of you – im sure you will love all of them. Hearing great things about the Gaiman book although not my type of read sounds good 😀

  39. June 18, 2013 12:17 pm

    all of these titles are new to me. Glad to see Gaiman has a new one.

  40. June 18, 2013 4:34 pm

    I just got The Shining Girls as well which I’m really excited about. I love literary time travel with serial killers – or at least I think I do!

  41. June 18, 2013 4:54 pm

    Great mailbox, happy reading! I’ve been wanting to read Neil Gaiman again.

  42. June 18, 2013 8:23 pm

    I got The Ocean at the End of the Lane too! I’m so excited to read it. It’s been quite a while since I’ve read one of his books. Looks like you got a great haul this week! Hope you enjoy them.

  43. June 18, 2013 10:45 pm

    Some of those titles grabbed my attention, going to check out the summaries.

  44. June 18, 2013 11:35 pm

    Listened to a good review of The Shining Girls on All Things Considered (NPR program). Not sure it’s for me, but the reviewer almost had me convinced. Hope you enjoy it.

    Here is a link if you are interested in hearing the review, it’s pretty short:

    I can’t wait to put my hands on Neil Gaiman’s new book! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this one!

    OMG — what a week! I have a few but also see a couple that are making me jealous.

  47. June 20, 2013 12:09 am

    Neil Gaiman’s book. I want!

    Happy reading, Kathy!

  48. June 20, 2013 9:16 pm

    I’m really curious about the new Neil Gaiman. Enjoy your new books!

    All the staff at my local bookshop are crazy about The Shining Girls – enjoy!

  51. June 26, 2013 11:16 am

    You’ve got some really good ones here. I’ve got a few of them too. It’s going to be a busy summer for reading. Enjoy!
