Mailbox Monday #127

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at A Girl and Her Books, formerly The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Mari Reads .  Kristi of The Story Siren continues to sponsor her In My Mailbox meme.  Both of these memes allow bloggers to share what books they receive in the mail or through other means over the past week.

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

Here’s what I received this week:

1.  Dreams of Joy by Lisa See from Random House for June review.

2.  Perfectly Untraditional by Sweta Srivastava Vikram for review from the author.

3.  The Bedtime Book for Dogs by Bruce Littlefield for review from Hachette Books in June.

4. My Dear I Wanted to Tell You by Louisa Young for review from Harper Collins in June.

From the library sale:

5. Tis by Frank McCourt

6. The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson

7. The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

8. The Assignation by Joyce Carol Oates

9. Buoyancy and Other Myths by Richard Peabody

What did you receive in your mailbox?
