Mailbox Monday September 8

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog.   Last week was busy and, then, our upstairs air conditioner went out and I was held captive all day Thursday while they replaced it.  I’m sure glad that week is behind us!  I found these books in my mailbox:






What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Mathematician’s Shiva sounds intriguing.

    I got Lilith’s Brood, a trilogy by Octavia Butler, in the mail this week. Luckily for me, no review copies came, so maybe I can work on my backlog! Your piles always look good, though!

    Ugh. Not a good time to have the AC go out, is it? We’ve had some cooler weather with the windows open, but it’s heading back into the high 80s this week.

    The Mathematician’s Shiva sounds good. Bellezza has a nice review about it on her blog and I’m intrigued.

    Have a good week, Kathy!

    Oh no! Air con dying in the summer is a great fear of mine. Glad you survived to tell the tale 🙂 Happy reading.

    Wow! A Brief History of Seven Killings sounds fantastic. I’ve not heard of this book before. Thanks for sharing. Here’s my MM

    I haven’t heard of any of these books. They all sound good though. Looking forward to your reviews.

    I’d like to read The Mathematician’s Shiva.

  9. September 8, 2014 8:45 am

    Love Boynton’s books (and her music CDs).

    Nice variety of books. Happy reading, Kathy!

    Nice week. And glad you were able to get that A/C fixed in one day.

  14. September 8, 2014 10:07 am

    I met the author of The Mathematician’s Shiva at Litquake a few weeks ago. As recently as last night, he agreed to be our Recycle Bookstore author for January. If you read it, I will be very interested to see what you think.

    don’t you just hate being captive in your house, I do, it’s been a summer of that for me, and today as well. I should be doing something around here, but… Great mailbox.

  16. September 8, 2014 10:18 am

    The title isn’t the greatest, but after checking out the blurb, I think Mathematician’s Shiva would be for me. Thanks! Here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES POST

  17. September 8, 2014 10:52 am

    Happy reading!!!

  18. September 8, 2014 11:18 am

    I really like the sound of the Mathematician’s Shiva – look forward to your review!

  19. September 8, 2014 11:21 am

    Sorry to hear about the AC. That would be a huge problem for me right now! Your mailbox was good to you this week, and Fleabrain Loves Franny caught my eye.

  20. September 8, 2014 11:33 am

    These titles are are new to me, I’m looking forward to reading your reviews.

  21. September 8, 2014 12:15 pm

    My daughter would love the new Boynton book. Glad the AC was fixed

  22. September 8, 2014 1:13 pm

    What a great stack. Enjoy!

  23. September 8, 2014 2:59 pm

    Sorry to hear about the A/C! I know how disruptive those home repairs can be. Enjoy your new books, Kathy. All of the titles are new to me.

  24. September 8, 2014 3:28 pm

    A nice mix in your mailbox, enjoy!

    Always a nice range of stuff to pick from each week! I haven’t heard of any of these. I feel out of touch!

  26. September 8, 2014 5:01 pm

    Hi Kathy,

    I do hope that you are not getting quite so ‘hot under the collar’ this week! I hate having repairs done around the house. Workmen always have a tendency to leave more things broken and in disarray, than they were before work began!

    I’m not sure that I shall be adding any of your books to my list this week, although I am quite intrigued by the Longworth book. A new author that I need to check out!

    Of course, the star prize for entertainment quality this week, has to go to ‘The Bunny Rabbit Show’, the title had me chuckling quietly, the cover made me laugh out loud!

    Thanks for sharing yet another great week, chez Kathy!


  27. September 8, 2014 9:09 pm

    Glad they fixed your A/C. Nothing worse than losing the A/C when it’s this hot out.

    Friendship Over looks like a great book. Hope you enjoy your haul. Thanks for visiting The Busy Mom’s Daily.

  28. September 8, 2014 9:14 pm

    It is always frustrating when you have to wait around for repairs! We are always given such a big span of time “between 10am -3pm”!

  29. September 8, 2014 10:08 pm

    I want The Mathematician’s Shiva. ENJOY it and all these great-looking books.

    Have a great week.

  30. September 9, 2014 9:28 am

    hmm, I need to go visit this Ile Sordou! thnaks for sharing

  31. September 9, 2014 10:59 am

    A nice little haul this week Kathy. They are all new to me titles that I will have to check out. Have a good week

  32. September 9, 2014 12:35 pm

    I’m going to have to seek out The Bunny Rabbit Show! I love Boynton’s books (as does Elle)–I finally had to hide some of them because she wanted to read them SO many times. 😉

  33. September 9, 2014 5:31 pm

    Happy reading! No AC in the summer can be a nightmare!

  34. September 10, 2014 1:43 am

    Oh my goodness, I wish a bunny rabbit Rockettes-esque line was a real thing. I would adore the cuteness.

  35. September 10, 2014 5:45 pm

    Great stack. I think all of these are new to me. 2 Kids and Tired Books MM

    Wow! We got totally different books last week. The only one in common was the board book.

  37. September 12, 2014 11:52 pm

    I’m curious about The Mathematician’s Shiva. Happy reading!

  38. September 15, 2014 8:24 pm

    You always get the best books!
