Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday March 9

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued, and now hosted on its own blog.    Slowly but surely, spring is trying to come to here – every other day was nice until this weekend, which was fabulous.  I didn’t get much reading done last week because we made a spur of the moment trip to Asheville, did our taxes, and then I was lucky enough to participate in International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day.  I found these books in my mailbox last week:





What did you find in your mailbox last week?

    Wow, a good week for you! I can’t wait to read Born With Teeth, I am a big fan of Kate Mulgrew’s, and Bettyville has gotten such terrific reviews.

    Oooh – The Bone Tree – I have that waiting for me on my Kindle and am so excited about it! I loved Natchez Burning.

    How nice to have a getaway during the week…and what a great selection of books! I am curious about The Cake House and The Mapmaker’s Children. Enjoy…and thanks for visiting my blog.

    Great looking stack of books. I enjoyed New Uses For Old Boyfriends. Congratulations on your win. Have a great week.

    Fantastic set of books! They all look good!

    I didn’t know that Greg Iles was ready to put out book 2 in his trilogy. That’s very exciting. Book 1, Natchez Burning, was my top book of 2014.

    Wow! I’m really bad about checking my mail, especially with all the snow blocking the mailboxes. This pile would probably crack the box! Enjoy!

  10. March 9, 2015 10:12 am

    What a great pile of books 🙂 I’m reading the Gortner one as well – I plan on starting it later this week. Sounds like it will be a good read. And I received the Mystery Writers Cookbook as well – I just love it! I’m already planning which recipes I want to use – most definitely the scones 🙂 Enjoy your new reads!!

    Ah, you got THE BONE TREE. I am so looking forward to that one. And it looks like it’s another 800 pager. Good!!

  12. March 9, 2015 10:17 am

    Wow! 😉

  13. March 9, 2015 10:17 am

    I got Cake House too. Not sure why I wanted it, except of course because of the appealing title! :–)

    Great books but Brew Day…sounds awesome! Lol! Cheers!

  15. March 9, 2015 12:18 pm

    Ooh busy week for you! Everything looks so good. Happy reading, Kathy!

  16. March 9, 2015 12:21 pm

    I love the stack that you got this past week! Many are books I have been curious about. Hope you enjoy them!

  17. March 9, 2015 2:00 pm

    We have one book in common and I cannot wait to read Sarah McCoy’s new one.

  18. March 9, 2015 3:18 pm

    Haha! Your books have such great titles this week- I like “The Wisdom of Perversity” best.

    I’ve gotten a copy of Shadow Scale, a sequel I’ve been waiting for for years, so I’m incredibly excited to be digging into it.

    A great mailbox for you, enjoy them all.

  20. March 9, 2015 4:20 pm

    Nice variety of books. I am jealous that you got The Bone Tree. I am looking forward to that book. Getting taxes done is always a pain, but sure glad when they are finished! Have a great week.

  21. March 9, 2015 4:55 pm

    You got lot of books! I’m so jealous of Mademoiselle Chanel. Born with Teeth and The Cake House sounds good too. Enjoy!

  22. March 9, 2015 5:07 pm

    Awesome books 🙂

  23. March 9, 2015 6:07 pm

    So many good books, some good reading ahead for you! I just added Born with Teeth to my wishlist, as I admire Kate Mulgrew the actress since her early days on Ryan’s Hope. Thanks for sharing!

    WOW Kathy, I think you need a new bookcase:)

  25. March 9, 2015 8:15 pm

    Kathy, I just read more about Born with Teeth; it sounds like an interesting memoir. I hope you enjoy all of your new books! 🙂

  26. March 9, 2015 9:49 pm

    Hard to decide where to start! A great stack of books this week – enjoy.

  27. March 10, 2015 9:06 am

    Wow, that’s quite a mailbox! I read so many good reviews about New Uses for Old Boyfriends. Enjoy your new books!

  28. March 10, 2015 1:41 pm

    What a FANTASTIC mailbox. You received some really great titles.

    I wouldn’t know which one to start reading, but The Mystery Writers Cookbook would be a starting place for me.

    The Greg Isles’ book would be one I would start right away too.

    I keep seeing The Mapmaker’s Children in mailboxes. I hope I was one of the winners in the contest from Shelf Awareness. 🙂

    ENJOY them all.

    Nice stack. I read an article in the NYT on Bettyville and it made me want to check it out. Enjoy

  31. March 10, 2015 6:48 pm

    You always get such a good looking haul! Enjoy!

  32. March 11, 2015 2:29 pm

    I have heard so many great things about Greg Iles, yet I still have to read one of his books. You’ve got a great stack there though. Enjoy!

      Kay, you definitely need to read him. His latest, Natchez Burning, is book 1 of a trilogy, but it’s long. You may want to start with one of his others. Any of them will do. There are a lot of standalones, and there is one series starring Penn Cage. Just get something.

  33. March 11, 2015 8:54 pm

    I got a copy of Born With Teeth yesterday — I’m excited to read it.

  34. March 12, 2015 7:57 am

    I LOVED “Mapmaker’s Children” — soooo good! Enjoy!! -beth

  35. March 12, 2015 10:21 pm

    Mademoiselle Chanel! That’s next for me. I think it is a gorgeous cover, too. So elegantly done. I am jelly of The Mapmaker’s Children!

  36. March 13, 2015 11:17 pm

    Kate Mulgrew is in town doing a book talk but I can’t make it 😦 Enjoy!

  37. March 16, 2015 12:23 am

    What a fabulous haul. I would love to read so many of these. Thanks for visiting.
