Mailbox Monday #88

In case you haven’t been by The Printed Page lately, Marcia has decided to step down from hosting Mailbox Monday, but she’s created a fantastic blog tour for Mailbox Monday with new hosts each month through 2011.

I’ll be hosting the meme in 2011, and I’m excited.  I hope you’ll consider throwing your name in the hat and join the fun.

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.  Hidden Things by Pam Jenoff, which was a happy surprise in the mail and for review. I think the final book will be called A Hidden Affair.

2.  The Outer Banks House by Diann Ducharme, which is another surprise book from the mail.

3.  Dracula in Love by Karen Essex, which I received from Shelf Awareness.

4.  The Recipe Club by Andrea Israel and Nancy Garfinkel, which I received for review from HarperCollins.

5.  The Gentleman Poet by Kathryn Johnson, which I received for review from HarperCollins.

6.  Jane and the Damned by Janet Mullany, which I received for review from Harper Collins.

7.  The Burning Wire by Jeffrey Deaver, which is an audio I received from Simon and Schuster for review.

8.  Spies of the Balkans by Alan Furst, which is an audio I received for review from Simon and Schuster.

What did you receive in your mailbox?

  8. Oh, such a wonderful haul! I’ve enjoyed Deaver’s work for a fast paced thrill, and I’ve heard such good things about the recipe book. The Outer Banks one made me think of Anne Rivers Siddons, whose work I’ve really admired as well. Happy Reading!

    Great mailbox Serena, and congrats on hosting in 2011 🙂
    The Recipe Club is one of my favorite reads of the year.

  10. I got Jane and the Damned and The Gentleman Poet as well! I’m excited to read them, but I must admit, I have so many TBR books right now, it’s hard to say when I’ll actually pick them up.
