Mailbox Monday

Its Monday. Welcome to my mailbox! Mailbox Monday a meme which is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Another fantastic book week. I expect this will be the last big mailbox I'll have for awhile but thats ok. I'm running out of room!
These did not come into my house via the mailbox. They came via my shopping bags from Barnes & Noble. The 21st was my birthday so I got these to celebrate:
  • Roses by Leila Meachum
  • The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
  • Sunflowers by Sheramy Bundrick
  • Prima Donna by Megan Chance
  • Secrets of the Tudor Court: The Pleasure Palace by Kate Emerson
  • The Painter from Shanghai by Jennifer Epstein
  • A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick
  • The Stolen Crown by Susan Higginbotham
  • The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

These are via mailbox from PBS:

  • Push not the River by James Conroyd Martin
  • Too Great a Lady by Amanda Elyot
  • Stealing Athena by Karen Essex
Too Great a Lady was one I had to reorder because the original one I ordered went lost in the mail. I feel terrible because the sender contacted me about this and the other 2 she sent in the package but they never arrived at this end so what can you do?

Hope everyone else had a fantastic mailbox too :)


  1. Push not the River is an excellent book! I read it years ago and I think it's one I will read again. Enjoy your birthday books :)

  2. The forgotten garden looks interesting, but I guess we're not supposed to judge a book just by looking at it's cover! lol

    maybe I'll head out to Chapters tonight!

  3. What a great way to celebrate your birthday! I really enjoyed Roses and Sunflowers!

  4. Your mailbox is pretty awesome!! Love the books that you treated yourself to for your birthday!! Enjoy!

  5. I enjoyed reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog. Enjoy all your books!

  6. WOW! You had a great week! I'm jealous! I've got Roses, Sunflowers, The Stolen Crown and Push Not the River on my TBR list. I see you're reading Lonesome Dove now, it's one of my favorites!! Enjoy!

  7. Roses was good as was The Forgotten Garden! Good haul you have there!
