Mailbox Monday February 2

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog.   I’m back from my mom’s and am hoping the groundhog predicts an end to winter.  I really shouldn’t complain, though, because, so far, it’s been a pretty mild one for us.  I found these books in my mailbox last week:



What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    It has been an extremely busy Monday. Only able to pay visits fleetingly to the blogs I follow!

    Enjoy the week.

    Both of those look great. Any non-work books look delicious to me these days 🙂

    I hope the groundhog comes through for you 🙂 We won’t be so lucky after the 10″ that fell yesterday! I hope you enjoy your new books.

    I received Girl Before a Mirror as well — enjoy. Another major snowstorm in progress here.

    I’m almost feeling guilty being here in Florida while friends at home get hammered with another storm… almost 😉

    Hope you enjoy the books!

    Both are new to me. And considering how overcast it is here (east of the groundhog), we might luck out …. no shadows!

    I welcomed February because we are now closer to Spring time. Enjoy you new books.

    Girl Before a Mirror looks as if it will be an enjoyable read for you! Hope it’s an good one.

    I liked Girl Before a Mirror. It’s not perfect, but I found its message pretty relevant.

    I’ve been noticing and ogling Girl Before a Mirror…hope you enjoy your new books and that the groundhog doesn’t disappoint us. I can’t really complain about winter, either; ours has been very mild, but then it usually doesn’t do much here except bring fog.

    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

    We’re having more sleet/snow here but I can’t complain…I love it:)

    I won’t ruin the groundhog surprise for but the verdict is already in! I read Girl Before Mirror last week – will be interested to hear your thoughts too.

    Happy reading this week! I hate the groundhog.

  15. February 2, 2015 1:07 pm

    Can’t wait to hear what you think of both of these! Sorry about the groundhog 😦 Wish I could share some of my sunshine with you!

    In an odd twist, I received NO books last week. The previous two weeks I rec over 16 books, so a zero week or two is good. I did download an e galley!! :).

    Kathy, I hope you will enjoy your new books. Winter is a good time to cozy up with a book.

  18. February 2, 2015 2:36 pm

    I keep hearing such great things about Girl Before a Mirror. It’s definitely one I’m lookking forward to, and I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading!

  19. February 2, 2015 3:56 pm

    The Palmer one looks good 🙂

  20. February 2, 2015 3:58 pm

    We are shoveling out from another 10 inch snowstorm, can’t wait for spring. Your two new titles sound good.

    According to my brother, there are two groundhogs and one saw it’s shadow and the other didn’t. So take your pick. 🙂 Enjoy your new books!

    I hate the groundhog! Enjoy your books.

    Hi Kathy,

    We here in the UK, love to moan and groan about our weather, but to be fair, it has been a very mild and quiet winter here so far and our temperate climate has a heck of a lot going for it, despite getting a little more rain than we all might like!

    I’m not sure that either of your books this week, are for me. However I did particularly like one line from the synopsis of ‘The Tragic Age’ …

    “Billy has decided that the best way to deal with an absurd world is to stay away from it. Do not volunteer. Do not join in.”

    … Sounds like good advice to me right now 🙂

    Have a great reading week,

    Great reading, for a snow day.

  26. February 2, 2015 8:43 pm

    Girl in the Mirror sounds fabulous. I didn’t know the author’s other book was optioned by HBO. Hope you enjoy your new books. Thanks for visiting The Busy Mom’s Daily.

    It looks every bit like deep winter here in Montreal. Winter is not leaving anytime soon. I hope you enjoy both books!

    Our groundhog saw 10 inches of snow! Hoping these next six weeks are not miserable weather wise.

  29. February 3, 2015 4:28 pm

    Happy reading!

    Groundhogs here saw their shadows reflected in heaps of snow! Glad to hear someone is having a relatively mild winter. 🙂

  31. February 7, 2015 11:15 pm

    I always know when you’re home because your steps go back to normal 🙂 These both look good.
