Another Monday, another Mailbox Monday! Hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday is bound to expand both your wish list and your TBR piles!
Four new books entered my house via the mailbox this week. They were:
My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares- I've never read a book by Ann Brashares, but this one captured my attention.
Sima's Undergarments for Women by Ilana Stranger-Ross - Recently released in paperback (my preferred format), this one looks to be a great beach read.
The Lies We Told by Diane Chamberlain- Another author who I've heard lots about, but have yet to read a book by!
Finding Marco by Kenneth C. Cancellara- I love memoirs set in foreign countries. You could say that I'm a bit of an armchair traveller.
Today (Sunday) I made a visit to my favourite used bookstore! I don't get a lot of chances to go because they're only open from 2-4 pm (they're not-for-profit and currently raising money for Haiti, so they're staffed entirely by volunteers), and I'm usually working in the afternoon. My blogging friend Mandy and I have tentatively decided on the next book that we're reading together and since it has been out for a while, I decided to make a visit there to see if they had a copy. They didn't, but they had so many amazing treasures in there that I didn't go home empty-handed. It was tough narrowing my choices down, but this is what I came home with:
The Baby Trail by Sinead Moriarty
The Love Trainer by Julia Llwellyn
Sleeping Arrangements by Madeleine Wickham
Bubbles A Broad by Sarah Strohmeyer
Multiple Choice by Claire Cook
Connections by Sheila O'Flanagan
Mixed Doubles by Jill Mansell (a Jill Mansell I don't own yet? Score!!)
Leave it to Cleavage by Wendy Wax
Swapping Lives by Jane Green
The Other Woman by Jane Green
Second Chance by Jane Green
That's everything that was in my mailbox (and book bag!) last week- what was in yours?
