Mailbox Monday #20

Welcome to another Mailbox Monday, sponsored by Marcia of The Printed Page.

I cannot believe the influx of books I received this week. It amazes me that every week I get a new book in the mail to read and review. I really enjoy reading and reviewing books here from a variety of genres and I love interviewing and speaking with authors and poets.

Ok, enough of my jabbering, here’s what came in the mailbox this week:

1. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson, which I won from In Bed With Books. Published by Penguin Group.

2. The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire by C.M. Mayo (a longtime instructor at the local Writer’s Center in Bethesda, Md.), which I received from Unbridled Books for a May blog tour.

3. The Italian Lover by Robert Hellenga, which I won on A Circle of Books. Published by Hatchette Group.

4. The 8th Confession by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro, which I received from Hatchette Group–Mom will be reviewing this one.

5. Rubies in the Orchard by Lynda Resnick, which I received from the author for review. This is published by Doubleday.

6. Torched Verse Ends by Steven Schroeder, which I received from the poet whom I interviewed for 32 Poems. I’ll let you know when the interview is up and ready. His book is published by BlazeVOX.

From Poet H.L. Hix:

7. Estonian Elegy and Selected Poems; a translation of Juri Talvet’s poems

8. Legible Heavens

I also received the following from the great people at Soho Press:
