Mailbox Monday January 5

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog.   Happy New Year!  I feel like a broken record, but it was another slow week in books and reading.  Hopefully things will change now that the holidays are over.  I found these books in my mailbox last week:


What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Yay for Rosie! I hope you love it, it’s up next for me.

    I liked the first Rosie book so I’ll watch for your review of the new one. Not familiar with The Grown Ups but I’ll look it up. Have a good week, Kathy, and Happy New Year!

    Fun! I’ll have to revive my local book club to take advantage of Book Club Girl’s offers.

    The Grown Ups looks good. I’m one of the few who have not read The Rosie Project yet.

    I am not familiar with Book Club Girls, but will check it out. Enjoy your new books!

    One of my goals for 2015 is to give another “in person” book club a try. I am on the fence about The Rosie Effect.

    Slow weeks are always nice catch-up weeks.

    I hope you enjoy The Rosie Effect…and I am intrigued by The Grown Ups. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog. Have a great week!

    The Rosie book is in several mailboxes. Enjoy both your reads

  12. January 5, 2015 11:29 am

    I read the first Rosie book. I’ll look for your review!

  13. January 5, 2015 11:50 am

    Hope you and your book club enjoy The Grown Ups – it’s one I’m eager to read. The Rosie Effect has gotten mixed reviews so far but I’m keeping an open mind. Happy reading!

    I wasn’t too sure about The Rosie Effect but after reading Jill’s (rhapsodyinbooks) review, I’ve added it to my to-read list. It sounds like it’s not as good as the first book but still a fun read.

    happy reading

    Two nice books, Kathy.

    I actually haven’t read either of the Rosie books, but I am having a giveaway if anyone wants to enter.

    Happy Reading Week!!

    Enjoy your new books, Kathy! (I haven’t done Mailbox Monday in a long time! I am getting new books in the mail, but not quite as many as I used to.)

  18. January 5, 2015 4:00 pm

    Happy reading 🙂

    No books in my mailbox last week, I’m afraid. But that isn’t uncommon. I haven’t gotten much reading done recently either. I do hope that changes soon.

    I liked the first Rosie novel. This week I picked up the book Lean In which I have to read for book club. Cheers.

  21. January 5, 2015 5:37 pm

    I keep hearing so many positive things about Rosie. I hope you enjoy it.

  22. January 5, 2015 6:36 pm

    Oh don’t worry! I’m sure you will see a lot of books in your mailbox soon! Enjoy your two books – I have to check out the two Rosie books.

    Two lovely perfect books!

  24. January 5, 2015 9:44 pm

    I’ve heard lots about The Rosie Effect Lately — I hope it’s as great as the buzz suggests!

  25. January 5, 2015 11:09 pm

    Slow book week for me too. I’m looking forward to Rosie Effect – I have it in audio.

    Hi Kathy,

    I am sure that ‘normal service will be resumed’ very soon, now that all the Christmas / New Year madness is over!

    I really like the sound of ‘The Grown Ups’. However for me, ‘The Rosie Project’ is probably going to be something of a non starter, which definitely seems to be me going against the trend of people queueing to read it.

    Enjoy both books and have a good week.

    I’m going to have to check out The Rosie Effect. I have seen it everywhere!

    Just finished THE ROSIE EFFECT — cute and fun!

  29. January 6, 2015 4:18 pm

    I don’t know that I’ve see The Grown Ups before, but I may need to look into it. Happy reading!

  30. January 6, 2015 6:09 pm

    I really need to get around to the Rosie books!

  31. January 6, 2015 11:28 pm

    I can’t wait to listen to The Rosie Effect. I loved the first book. Enjoy Kathy!

  32. January 7, 2015 4:42 pm

    I listened to The Rosie Effect and absolutely loved it! Happy reading!

  33. January 7, 2015 10:35 pm

    I still need to read the first Rosie book!
