Welcome to Mailbox Monday! Originally created by Marcia at The Printed Page, MM is currently on tour. This month our host is Avis at she reads and reads. Each week we share which books we found in our mailboxes, but be warned: MM can lead to towering TBR piles and out-of-control wish lists!
I thought that last week would be a bookless week for me, but on Friday I got a suprise (unsolicited) package! When I first received it, I'll be honest and say that I wasn't quite sure how this particular publisher got my address (I later figured out that I have worked with the publicist previously). I'm not complaining- if anyone else wants to send me surprise books, feel free! I'll even send you my wish list... This is what I got:
Foxybaby by Elizabeth Jolley
Description (from Goodreads): Elizabeth Jolley's celebrated novel is set in a Summer School amid an isolated and surreal landscape where nothing is quite as it appears. Miss Alma Porch, writer and tutor, travels to the School to present the outline of her unwritten novel, "Foxybaby", to the Creative Drama Students. In the process, real and invented words collide.
The Sugar Mother by Elizabeth Jolley
I'm intrigued by both of these titles and although I do have a few review books to get to first, I hope to read them soon.
That's it for my mailbox! What was in yours?
