Mailbox Monday #65

Marcia at The Printed Page and Kristi of The Story Siren both sponsor memes in which bloggers share what books they’ve received in the past week.  I’m going to continue calling these Mailbox Mondays, but The Story Siren also has In My Mailbox.

This mailbox is another full one and I have no idea how that happened.

4.  Gargoyle 54
5.  Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger by Lee Smith
6.  Christening the Dancer by John Amen, a gift from the poet.
7.  An Arsonist’s Guide to Writers’ Homes in New England by Brock Clarke

  1. You got some great looking books! Mrs. Darcy and the Blue Eyed Stranger really appeals to me. I've read other books of hers and really liked them so I could even be tempted by this collection of short stories, which I normally avoid like the plague.

  2. Gulp!! Have fun Serena!

    OMG! Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter? I've not heard of this, but it set me off with giggles just thinking about it. Will have to pick this up just for laughs!

    I think I see some giveaways in your future! I read Burnt Shadows with my book club and I really enjoyed it. I was definitely in the minority, though.

  16. You received a great stack of books!! I got The Weight of Heaven and look forward to reading it. Lucky you getting a copy of The Swan Thieves!

  17. Your mailperson must have a sore back from all those books. Have a fun time reading them all.

  18. I just finished Yolen's The Devil's Arithmetic, so I'm curious about the Radiation Sonnets. I also received The Monuments Men.

    Happy reading!
