Mailbox Monday


In October, Mailbox Monday is hosted by Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit. Thanks Serena !


I was quite excited as I opened packages from publishers and authors this week. I had blogged about a couple of these books previously as ones that I was looking forward to reading.  Have you read, or are you hoping to read any of these?
Hope you had a great week for new books!

  5. I have the hardcover for The Marriage Plot to but I think I'm going to listen. This is the first choice for my new neighborhood book club and one of the gals is not enjoying it, at all. Since I picked it... I'm hoping it's just her.

    Have a great week!

  11. OoooDiane, you received some terrific books this week...The Marriage Plot interests me the most!
    I've seen The Time in Between on several blogs and The Girl on the Cliff looks interesting.
    Treasure Island, a Europs book that's great! and Immortal Bird sounds good, too.

    Enjoy them all, Diane!

  12. I have a copy of Model on my bookshelves from when it first came out. It's a really interesting book - so much so that I've read it a couple of times. It sits next to A Thing of Beauty another great modelish book. I recommend both highly.

  16. You got a great assortment of books! I have the audio for The Marriage Plot and wasn't all that excited about it until everyone raved about Jeffrey Eugenides. Now I am looking forward to it!

  23. I have been seeing The Time in Between around. It sounds like a good one and I really enjoy the cover.

  24. Ooh, you got The Marriage Plot. Lucky duck!

  25. Oh, I see a few there that I'm putting on my TBR list. I hope you enjoy them!

  26. Loved Middlesex by Eugenides and am wondering how The Marriage Plot will stack up to that one. Bright and Distant Shores caught my attention on Goodreads because of the Chicago setting. A Historical Fiction novel set in one of my fave cities-sounds right up my alley. Enjoy all your books!

  27. I think The Girl on the Cliff sounds and looks great!!! Enjoy all your wonderful books!

  28. I am most envious of The Marriage lot but the Europa is a lose second. Enjoy your books!

  30. The Time in Between seems to be the book of the week! I have seen it everywhere today!

  31. Can't wait to see what you think of The Marriage Plot. I'm on the fence about it … even though I loved Middlesex.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You got a great variety of books this week! I have the Time in Between so I am looking forward to comparing notes with you!

  33. All of these titles look so good! I need to get back in a good reading groove. Since school has been back in session, I just can't seem to balance teaching/planning/grading, and reading, too. Maybe some of these books will get me back in the swing of things.

  34. I have started Immortal Bird and it is quite a special book. My heart however is sad while reading it so I put it down for a bit. I received of few of those too and am looking forward to them!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nice selection! I also received The Time in Between. The Marriage Plot is one I hope to read and the others are new titles to me.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm so jealous you gotthe marriage plot!! Hope you enjoy the great books you got this week.

  37. I really want to read The Marriage Plot - keep hearing good reviews of it! Believe it or not, I still haven't read Middlesex!

    Too many books and too little time...
