Mailbox Monday March 1

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog.    Last week went by in a blur.  Every single meteorologist was sure we’d be hit by a big winter storm and people scrambled to prepare for it which meant the store was busy.  Thankfully, they were wrong – we got rain and a smattering of snow instead of the 5 to 8 inches they predicted.  Even so, I’m glad to say goodbye to February and its weather.   I found these books in my mailbox last week:




What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Everyone is waiting for the new erik Lawson. We’ve had so many people taking about it at the Book Cellar. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

    Enjoy your books! I am curious about The Daddy Diaries…and Dead Wake. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    I read Dead Wake a couple of weeks ago. Read all of this. Don’t skip, even if you suspect that 1) some paragraphs exist simply because Larson didn’t want to waste a single bit of the research he did for DEAD WAKE and 2) those paragraphs won’t contribute to your overall understanding of the book. Your suspicions would be wrong. I had those suspicions but, luckily, just in case, didn’t skip.

    I was ashamed to say but no longer am because Larson, himself, admits the same: I always thought that the U.S. entered World War I immediately after the Germans torpedoed and sank the “Lusitania.” Larson lays out the truth, beginning with background. That can form the basis for educated guesses about what happened later and why.

    For me, the biggest mysteries of this story are what the English knew ahead of time, why they didn’t notify the captain of the “Lusitania” when they knew it, and why they continued to lie about it. Was this an effort to involve the U.S. in this war in Europe? Or were the English trying to mislead the Germans?

    I came to a conclusion. But that’s because I read it all.

    I read Edwidge Danticat’s Claire of the Sea Light and thought it was okay. Erik Larson’s In the Garden of Beasts, was one of my top 6 books of 2012. But Devil in the White City wasn’t nearly as good, IMHO.

    Eight Hundred Grapes looks cute, and I love the notecards! Happy reading 🙂

  10. March 2, 2015 11:27 am

    I am waiting for the Erik Larson book too!

    I bet Dead Wake will be good. I am curious about Eight Hundred Grapes.

    Love your notecards.

    ENJOY you reading week.

    I just requested Eight Hundred Grapes from Netgalley – it looks good! And – I finished Dead Wake recently…unfortunately I didn’t think it was as amazing as his previous books.

    Hope the weather continues to improve. The week has started with a blur in my case. Monday has whizzed by and I just couldn’t do this meme

    I’m looking forward to reading Dead Wake. Enjoy your books!

    Counting Crows looks cute! And those notecards would have come in handy when I was writing letters all last month.

    I love note cards. We are welcoming March with freezing rain. Glad the nasty weather bypassed you! Have a great week.

  27. March 2, 2015 9:03 pm

    I got Dead Wake last month and gave it to my husband. He’s been so busy, I should probably take it back and read it myself!

  28. March 2, 2015 11:01 pm

    Dead Wake looks good!

  29. March 3, 2015 1:25 am

    Great haul! Save Me sounds really interesting to me. Happy reading!

    Nice stack! Dead Wake is phenomenal. 😀

    Counting Crows looks delightful for young readers. I have Dead Wake too. I hope it lives up to my expectations!

  32. March 3, 2015 2:02 pm

    Enjoy all your new books. These are new to me.

  33. March 3, 2015 4:06 pm

    Ooooh Dead Wake!! Can’t wait to get to that one…likely on audio for me. And what pretty notecards.

    Notecards are beautiful!!! You had a pretty good week – we got a few of the same but I have my eye on some of your books!

  35. March 3, 2015 9:35 pm

    I’ll be curious to read the reviews of Dead Wake! I didn’t love Larson’s last book, and WWII isn’t really my thing, so I’m just not sure…

    Edwidge Danticat is one of my favorite authors. I hope you enjoy her book! I really liked that one.

  37. March 5, 2015 2:22 am

    Those notecards are so pretty! I’m such a goner for stationary.

    Edwidge Danticat sure seems prolific. I wish the feedback on Dead Wake was a bit better
