Mailbox Monday #84

Another box of books from Book Expo America arrived at Anna‘s house, and she kindly brought the four books I couldn’t fit into my box with her to the office.  I also brought home one from the bookshelf at work that someone had dropped off for a new reader.

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.  Just be warned that these posts can increase your TBR piles and wish lists.

Here’s what I received:

1.  The Sight by Judy Blundell, which I picked up at Scholastic.

2.  The Deadly Sister by Eliot Schrefer, which I picked up at Scholastic.

3.  The Best Teen Writing of 2009 edited by Virginia Lee Pfaehler with a foreword by Elie Wiesel, which I picked up at Scholastic.

4.  The Kulak’s Daughter by Gabriele Goldstone, which I picked up at Book Expo America.

5.  The Spies of Warsaw by Alan Furst, which I got from the community shelves at work and that was favorably reviewed by Diary of an Eccentric.

Books I received in the mail:

6.  Mr. Darcy’s Obsession by Abigail Reynolds, which I received for review in October from Sourcebooks.

7.  The Land of Green Plums by Herta Muller, which I received from Henry Holt and Company for review.

8.  The Appointment by Herta Muller, which I received from Henry Holt and Company for review. I have reviewed Nadirs by Herta Muller previously.
