Mailbox Monday



Mailbox Monday is hosted by http://printedpage.us/
Thanks Marcia for hosting this popular post.

Hey book buddies, did you have a great week in books? I had a fabulous surprise (or 2)  in my mailbox almost every day this week. It was very exciting. The first stack of books are my favorites, but SERIOUSLY, I love them all :)


(These should more than satisfy the animal lover in me, even though they are bound to be a bit sad).


  Thanks so much to the generous authors/publishers, and bloggers.

  1. Wow, I almost couldn't find the comment link. A SMall Death in the Great Glen looks good to me as does A Slender Thread. Enjoy all your new books, Diane. Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

  2. I'm a huge animal lover...but I've had to stop reading animal stories because of all the tears :-( Enjoy your books (and have a good old cry for me)!

  7. It looks like you got a lot of great stuff there. I will be interested in hearing about all of them, but mostly The Slender Thread. I want to compare it to a book that I bought a long time ago and see if they are the same! Happy reading!!

  8. I've seen some of these around...like Faithful Place.

    I'm wondering about Displaced Person. Sounds like it could be very good.

    Have a great week.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  9. I've heard lots of good stuff about Tana French and I got Small Death, too. Happy reading! I didn't get a chance to do up a mailbox this week, but I do have a Reading Recap and a Giveaway if you'd like to stop by!

  11. I got Fall of Giants too; I have no idea how long it will take to read it. In the meanwhile, I can use it as a weapon I think.

  14. You did have a great week! I can't wait to see what you think of Faithful Place. Free to a Good Home isn't sad, by the way. Happy reading!

  18. What a great selection! I'm going to have to get hold of a copy of Elephant's Journey soon, but many of the others sound very appealing too. I look forward to hearing all about them.

  20. Thanks for visiting my blog! I read S&S when I was young and didn't really appreciate it, and now I'm trying it again and quite enjoying the characters and Austen's understated humor :)

    Happy reading!

  21. Whoops, sorry about the last comment - wrong blog! I'm sure yours is just as wonderful :) (I'm new at this blogging thing).

  22. Goodness, that is a mess of great looking books! I'm going to put A Slender Thread on my wish list as it has caught my eye! I hope you enjoy all these new books!

  23. That is some haul you have there. I read Ken Follet religiously when I was younger, but haven't in many years. Hmm, may have to change that. Thx, for stopping by my blog earlier. FYI - the reason I have so many books started is that I have an audiobook in the car, one in the house, one paperback book and one on the Ipad. I always have one in reaching distance. happy reading!
