Mailbox Monday December 29

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog.    I hope everyone had a great week and a wonderful holiday – we had a nice, quiet Christmas which was exactly what we wanted.  Santa didn’t bring me any books but the mailman brought a few.  I found these books in my mailbox last week:




What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    They all sound good. Happy reading and wish you a happy 2015 🙂

    Fantastic books! Have a lovely new year, full of wonderful reads.

  3. December 29, 2014 6:32 am

    Glad you had a nice Christmas. Santa doesn’t ever bring me books because he’s not sure what I’ve read. I’m a fan of Marisa de los Santos – can’t wait to hear about her new book. Have a great week!

    We let the mailman bring us books too … Santa knows better. 🙂

    Is there another Dennis Lehane already? I’ve been meaning to read something by him for a long time. I like Marisa de los Santos, too. I’ll have to look into the other ones!

    Santa didn’t bring me any books either… thank God for the mailman! 😉

    The mailman is certainly the new Santa! You had a great week in books. Hope you enjoy them!

  8. December 29, 2014 8:28 am

    WOW, nice haul Kathy — I love LeHane’s writing.

  9. December 29, 2014 9:06 am

    Lovely mailbox. Just like Santa delivering surprise gifts! Hope you love them all.

  10. December 29, 2014 9:37 am

    A new Lehane! You have some good looking reads here Kathy!

  11. December 29, 2014 10:20 am

    Enjoy! These all look so tempting…and I especially like the look of A Touch of Stardust. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Most of those titles are new to me. Enjoy!

  13. December 29, 2014 11:27 am

    I have Touch of Stardust and the last two you list from Harper. I didn’t take the Lehane, not sure why now…LOL. Happy reading!!

  14. December 29, 2014 11:38 am

    Enjoy the reads. Happy New Year

    I want all of them…except The Swimmer…I have that one!

  16. December 29, 2014 12:57 pm

    The new Dennis Lehane book looks good!

    Santa didn’t bring me books either… he knows better than to try and guess what I haven’t read. 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to read the Little Golden Book you got. Let me know how it is.

  18. December 29, 2014 1:18 pm

    Nothing in my mailbox but I did get the Annotated HP Lovecraft and the Annotated Sherlock Holmes short stories, so I’m happy!

    No books from Santa for me, either, although I treated myself to a new cookbook (Skinnytaste) that I’m anxious to try once we return from Oregon. We spent Christmas Day traveling, so we celebrated on Boxing Day. It was quiet and relaxing, just the way we like it (although there are times when I miss the huge family gatherings we once had when we all lived in the San Diego area).

    I’m eager to hear what you have to say about the new de los Santos novel. I loved her first two books (Love Walked In and Belong to Me), but was disappointed with her more recent novel (Falling Together). 2015 is my year for re-reading and I plan to add Belong to Me to my TBRR stack.

    Happy, happy 2015!

  20. December 29, 2014 2:44 pm

    They look great! I too am eager to hear about the new de los Santos book!

  21. December 29, 2014 3:51 pm

    A nice mix in your mailbox, enjoy!

  22. December 29, 2014 4:06 pm

    Enjoy your new books 🙂

  23. December 29, 2014 4:42 pm

    Kathy, I imagine your mailman felt a bit like Santa. Enjoy your new goodies! Many are new to me. 🙂

  24. December 29, 2014 5:01 pm

    Hope you enjoy your books! The Swimmer sounds particularly interesting.

  25. December 29, 2014 5:47 pm

    I just added A Touch of Stardust to my wishlist – looks great! My Mailbox Monday

  26. December 29, 2014 6:09 pm

    Maria De Los Santos is a fantastic writer! Happy reading!

  27. December 29, 2014 6:51 pm

    good books

  28. December 29, 2014 7:23 pm

    I didn’t get any books in my mailbox, OR for Christmas! How weird is that?! 🙂 But I did get a $15 book-shopping giftcard for my birthday.

  29. December 29, 2014 9:06 pm

    Santa got frustrated that every book I received, I’d already read. So no more books for me, just gift cards. I love the Everything I Needed To Know About…I learned in a Little Golden Book. Happy New Year.

  30. December 29, 2014 9:09 pm

    I didn’t get any books for Christmas either! I haven’t heard of any of these but I love Dennis Lehane’s books in general. Enjoy!

  31. December 29, 2014 9:40 pm

    Santa didn’t bring me any books or anything bookish this year either!

  32. December 29, 2014 9:43 pm

    A Touch of Stardust sounds like it will be really interesting. I hope you enjoy it, as well as the rest of your books. Happy reading!

  33. December 29, 2014 9:49 pm

    I’m glad you enjoyed a quiet Christmas – we did too. You got a nice haul of books even if none from Santa. Happy New Year and Happy Reading!

    I like the sound of these! I got five books for Christmas from a Secret Santa. All mysteries, but each very different from one another. Can’t wait to read them. 🙂

    Have a Happy New Year, Kathy!

  35. December 30, 2014 8:44 pm

    Girl Runner sounds good.

  36. December 31, 2014 12:08 am

    I have a book by de los Santos that I have yet to read. I should read it this next year.

  37. December 31, 2014 10:31 am

    What an exciting stash! Happy New Year 2015!!

  38. December 31, 2014 7:06 pm

    Oooooo….very nice mailbox.

    I want them all. 🙂

    Looks like some great books. I would love to read. Everything I Need to Know About Christmas I Learned From a Little Golden Book.

    Thanks for visiting The Busy Mom’s Daily. Happy New Year.

    I want to read Girl Runner and the Lehane could be good too. You scored!

    I don’t think I received that many books over the past month! Great haul!
