Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday August 26

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued.  This month’s host seems to be MIA so I’ll be posting a link again this week.   I’ve had a busy, but fun week and am visiting my mom right now.  I don’t have internet access, but that’s okay – I’m here to enjoy being with her.  September’s host is Yolanda of Notorious Spinks Talks Books.  Starting next month, Bob of Beauty in Ruins will be the new back-up host for Mailbox Monday.  Here are the books that showed up in my mailbox last week:





Did you find any goodies in your mailbox last week?

    Hope you’re having a nice visit with your mom. It’s nice to take an internet break now and then.
    I’m reading an e-galley of Two Boys Kissing now- it’s so good. I had to pre-order a hardcover too! Tinderbox looks like a good one. Enjoy!

    Hi Kathy,

    I like the sound of ‘How To Be A Good Wife’ and early reviews indicate that it is going to be a great success as a debut novel for Emma Chapman.

    Sue Grafton’s ‘alphabet series’ is always going to be a winner for me and although I don’t read much children’s literature, the cover art of ‘Mister Max’ is amazing.

    I hope that you are enjoying your visit and thank you so much for being such a good ‘stand-in’ host, on so many occasions over the past months.

    I have ‘How To Be A Good Wife’ on my to be read next list and with the increasing buzz I think I’ll give it a try soon. Excited about the new David Levithan but I’ll have to wait till the pub date!

    The Lost Girls of Rome and How To Be a Good Wife sounds very good. Happy reading!
    Enjoy your visit with your mom 🙂

    Have a lovely break and enjoy all your books!

    Help for the Haunted sounds like a good one. Enjoy your books and your visit with your mom.

  7. August 26, 2013 6:04 am

    Enjoy your time with your mum! I love spending time with my mum. Does yours like to read?
    Thanks for being the MM host for August.

    It’s the first time I’ve seen Tinderbox – cute cover art and sounds very interesting yet ominous – enjoy.

    What a diverse group of goodies. Based on the spines only, I’d pull The Book of Lost Things from the shelf!

  10. August 26, 2013 6:28 am

    You have some nice books – Enjoy them!

    Just saw a review for Two Boys Kissing in EW and it really sounds good. And of course Grafton is mandatory reading for me.

  13. August 26, 2013 7:09 am

    Kathy, I read Help for the Haunted (no review yet) and liked it — hope you do as well. enjoy the new books

  14. August 26, 2013 7:34 am

    Nice mailbox. I picked up a few of those at the BEA.

    ENJOY your week.


  15. August 26, 2013 7:36 am

    Well boo, I was supposed to get the Grafton but didn’t!

  16. August 26, 2013 7:45 am

    I have Mister Max from NetGalley which I’d like to read with my son. The Lost Girls of Rome caught my eye of course. Will be looking for your review on that one.

  17. August 26, 2013 8:11 am

    Nice haul! I really want to read Two Boys Kissing, and I will be looking forward to hearing what you thought of it. Enjoy your new books!

  18. August 26, 2013 8:53 am

    I also received How To Be A Good Wife. Help for the Haunted sounds good, first I’ve heard of it.

    Enjoy your visit with mom, the internet can wait!

  19. August 26, 2013 9:15 am

    Looks like you got a lot of interesting books, Kathy! Enjoy your time with your mom. We’ll be here when you return!

  20. August 26, 2013 9:31 am

    I’ve been interested in How To Be A Good Wife, but I don’t think I could read Two Boys Kissing. You always have the tallest stack of exciting books! Thank you for hosting Mailbox Monday again.

  21. August 26, 2013 10:08 am

    Lots of intriguing titles that I want to check out. Glad you are having a visit with your mom.

  22. August 26, 2013 11:20 am

    I can’t wait to read W is for Wasted…I love this series. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week.

  23. August 26, 2013 12:15 pm

    Mister Max?! I’m jealous. 🙂 Enjoy your stack!

  24. August 26, 2013 12:17 pm

    Ooooh, nice range of arrivals!! Enjoy!

  25. August 26, 2013 12:27 pm

    Like nearly everyone I’m on my ear to read Chapman’s book. In the meantime, enjoy the precious time with your mother. Mine was a voracious reader and I miss her terribly. Cheers!

  27. August 26, 2013 3:39 pm

    Enjoy! your time with mom, a great list of reads ahead.

    I had a great week-end, saw President Obama, when he came to Scranton, Pa. and had a great day at the beach on Saturday. So sorry summer is coming to an end.

  28. August 26, 2013 4:17 pm

    Thank you for hosting again, Kathy! Enjoy your time with your mom, and your new books.

  29. August 26, 2013 4:31 pm

    How to be Good Wife seems to be on quite a few TBR piles, anxiously awaiting your review.

  30. August 26, 2013 5:35 pm

    The Lost Girls of Rose sounds so cool–I love books that bridge different eras and show commonality over the eons. Very promising. Enjoy your respite from the wired world!

  31. August 26, 2013 6:13 pm

    All but two of those titles are new to me. Have fun with your mom!

    Enjoy your visit with your mom, Kathy!

    I’ve got my copy of W is for Wasted on pre-order! I’m still behind in the series, but I want to catch up this year. Maybe. That’s the plan anyway. LOL

  33. August 26, 2013 7:49 pm

    I got How to be a Good Wife as well and cannot wait to start it!!

  34. August 27, 2013 10:50 am

    Looks like a great stack. Enjoy!

  35. August 27, 2013 6:58 pm

    I hope you’re having a great time with you mom. My mom is coming to stay with me for a week in November; I haven’t seen her in a year, so I am so excited. 🙂

    Happy reading!

  36. August 27, 2013 8:27 pm

    That’s a great stack of books and great photo of them too. I’ve been wanting to read David Levithan for some time. Happy reading.

    We had a very similar mailbox this week. I even had some of your new ones already! Too funny! Can’t wait to hear what you think.

  40. August 29, 2013 3:00 pm

    Sounds like you have some great reading ahead of you, and I’m flat out jealous of two of them. Hope you week is going great.

    I’d love to hear what you think of The Lost Girls of Rome! Happy reading!
