Mailbox Monday December 23

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued.  December’s host is Gilion of Rose City Reader.  It’s the week of Christmas and I’m pretty much ready – all I have left to do is fight the crowds at the grocery store.  Here are the books that showed up in my mailbox last week:






 Did you find any goodies in your mailbox last week?

    Wow, nice reads there!
    I hope the grocery store trip is event-free – I managed to get out of it this year, thank goodness.
    Happy holidays 😀

    wonderful mailbox! The Wolf of Wall Street looks really good. Hope you like them all.

      I read The Wolf of Wall Street years ago (way before all the movie hype) – it was definitely raucous, but never in a million years would I have guessed that Martin Scorsese and Leo DiCaprio would have ever made a movie out of it!

    Have a great reading week and a great Christmas week.

    Impressive stack! I hope you enjoy them all….Stella Bain is on my wish list, and I’m curious about The Wolf of Wall Street. Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great holiday.

    Looks like a bunch of good reading this week! I’m curious about the new Anita Shreve and Tessa Hadley books. The Fishing Fleet looks interesting, too! As for me, I got a copy of Savage Girl, too. I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll like it more than The Orphanmaster, her previous book.

    My hubby, bless his heart, went at 6am to do our dinner shopping! It was a breeze he said. I see a couple that are on my want to read list. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    Wow … that’s some stack of books. Happy reading, Kathy!

    haha, that’s kind of funny. I was literally just looking up The Fishing Fleet because someone recommended it to me. I go from not hearing about it to hearing about it twice in one day. 🙂

    Awesome stack! I can see a few titles I need to check out. Happy holidays!

    Heavy mailbox! The Fishing Fleet is the one I would like to read. Interesting background.

    Hi Kathy,

    Wow! are you sure this is only one week’s worth of new arrivals, or have you been saving them all up for one gigantic Christmas feast of new titles … LOL!

    Given my new found interest in the short story, I am very tempted by the Jeffery Deaver collection and the Anita Shreve story sounds up to her usual exemplary standards.

    Thanks for sharing and I hope that you get the time to read at least some of them over the Christmas break, have a lovely time.

    Great stack of books this week!

  22. December 23, 2013 3:31 pm

    Lots of new to me books, as usual! I see a few I want to add to my list!
    We decided to eat out this year. I wish you and your family a very Blessed Christmas!

  23. December 23, 2013 4:36 pm

    These are all new to me. Happy reading and Happy holidays!

  24. December 23, 2013 10:42 pm

    merry (early ) Christmas in books LOL

  25. December 23, 2013 11:20 pm

    looks like you’ll have a few to keep you busy over the holidays! Savage Girl is on my list of TBR already ~ looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it!

    Merry merry Christmas dear Kathy!

  26. December 24, 2013 12:28 am

    I didn’t realize that The Wolf of Wall Street was a book. I totally intend on seeing the movie. I’ll be interested about the book!

  29. December 24, 2013 9:22 am

    I’ve heard really good things about The Purchase. Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

  30. December 24, 2013 10:49 pm

    A new Shreve and a new Deaver? Color me jealous 🙂
