Mailbox Monday #170

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’s host is Diary of an Eccentric.

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.  Darkroom by Joshua Graham, which I received from Simon & Schuster as part of Partners in Crime Virtual Tours in May.

2.  The Coldest Night by Robert Olmstead, which I received from Algonquin.

  1. Great stuff Serena! I rented The Descendants the other day but haven’t had a chance to watch it. Enjoy!

  2. I haven’t seen THE DESCENDANTS yet but I have the movie sitting right here and I can’t wait to watch it.

  3. I just may have to use that coupon code…I want one of their shirts!!! I want to watch that movie too! Enjoy your books!

  4. Nice week. Good books and a t-shirt too! I’ll probably see the movie The Descendants before I get a chance to read the book.

  5. I want to see The Descendents! That’s a great win! The t-shirt is adorable! I’ll be sure to check out the store!

  6. The Coldest Night looks very good and I have read wnderful things about Robert Olmstead’s writing. Great win of The Descendants DVD, Serena. Enjoy!

    I love the T-shirt Gone Reading sent you. Their work sounds impressive and much needed. I’m definitely going to check out their store and will be purchasing a goodie or two! Thank you for sharing your coupn code.

    Have a great week!

  7. The Coldest Night sure catches my eye. I watched The Descendants shortly after listening to the audiobook, and I thought they did a good job. Enjoy your new goodies!

    • I hope to find a copy of the book at the library so I can read it and then watch the movie, but I doubt I can hold off on watching Clooney that long.

  8. The Coldest Night looks interesting. I hope you enjoy all your new books!

  9. Great mailbox. I like that tshirt.

  10. You found all kinds of goodies in your mailbox last week! You can wear your t-shirt while you read and watch the movie now. Enjoy!

  11. Books and other goodies…what a great week for you! I know how much you love Clooney. 🙂

  12. All of these look pretty good to me. I’d like to see that DVD movie – great win.
