Mailbox Monday #139

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon 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 Life in the Thumb.  Kristi of The Story Siren continues to sponsor her In My Mailboxmeme.  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.  Alice Bliss by Laura Harrington from the author for review and her BookCrossing.com experiment.

2.  The Lost Wife by Alyson Richman from Penguin for review.

3. Horoscopes for the Dead by Billy Collins, which I purchased for myself after I read it from the library.

4. Bloody Valentine by Melissa De La Cruz, which I purchased from Borders.

5. The Boat by Nam Le, which Anna bought for my birthday gift.

What did you receive this week?


  1. I have Alice Bliss on the stack waiting for me. Hope we both love it 🙂

  2. Some great books there. I really need to get the Collins collection. It’s been a while since I’ve read any of his poetry.

  3. Anna gave you some good love for your B day- a fab book!

    Happy belated and enjoy all these great reads 🙂

    PS Don’t forget to blow out the 21 candles AGAIN 😉

  4. I’ve been seeing The Lost Wife on other blogs — looking forward to the reviews!

  5. The Lost Wife sounds very good. I was tempted by the Alice Bliss experiment but I have so many books here that I need to read. It will be interesting to see how the experiment goes.
