Mailbox Monday August 1

Welcome to Mailbox Monday, a meme started by Marcia and now hosted on its own blog.    Last week was busy but fun!  Carl and I made a spur of the moment trip to Richmond and, after we got back, my friends and I won at trivia!  I’m looking forward to a slower pace this week.  I found these goodies in my mailbox last week:

    Congrats on your win! I’m looking forward to reading Commonwealth, I love the cover.

    I got Commonwealth and Marrow too. I love Ann Patchett and can’t wait to read it.

    I can’t wait for Commonwealth! I loved State of Wonder.

    Lucky you… Commonwealth!! I can’t wait to read it.

    I’ve enjoyed Ann Patchett’s books in the past. I received The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman and The House Between Tides too. I hope you enjoy all of your books and have a great week Kathy.

    Commonwealth caught my eye. Congrats on the trivia win!

    I see we received two similar books.

    The House Between Tides is good. I am about three quarters of the way through.

    ENJOY your reading week and your books.

    Great mailbox! I’m curious about Ann Patchett’s new book. I’ve read and enjoyed her previous books although she has a penchant for bad endings.

    I don’t take a lot of ARCs. But I did grab Ann Patchett’s latest. I think she is a very good author.

    Congrats on your trivia win! Happy reading!

    A good assortment of books and most I haven’t heard of. Curious about The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman. Quite the title!

    Sounds like you had a fun week! All your books look good to me, Valley of the Moon in particular. Hope you enjoy them all!

    Congrats on the trivia win 🙂 Commonwealth is such a great read – you are going to really enjoy it.

    Looks like fun mail!

    I will have to tell my brother about the Star Wars one, he is a huge fan.

    Hi Kathy,

    As usual, you have a great mix of genres to choose from this time, although I particularly have my eye on ‘The House Between Tides’.

    Favourite cover art has to go to ‘The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman’, although ‘Valley Of The Moon’ comes a close second in a very different way.

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week 🙂

    The House Between Tides! I really want to read that one. As well as Valley of the Moon. Enjoy your new books, Kathy!

    Congrats on the trivia win! So glad to see the new Patchett book. I need to get it.

  20. August 1, 2016 2:55 pm

    A nice mix in your mailbox, enjoy!

    Wow! You got some great books. I think we only had one in common. I’m a little jealous!

    Congrats on the trivia win. I hope you had fun in Richmond. Star Wars Jedi Academy: A New Class + swag by Jarrett J. Krosoczka caught my eye here.

    I’ve been seeing The House Between Tides around a lot lately.

  27. August 2, 2016 11:42 pm

    I’m so anxious to read Commonwealth!

  28. August 4, 2016 9:07 pm

    The children’s books look like fun. The House Between Tides sounds interesting too. I have heard some of these authors but never read any. I hope you enjoy all of your reading.
