In My Mailbox


In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren. It's our opportunity to get a peek into what books everyone is receiving for review, borrowing from libraries, buying in bookshops and download onto eReaders.

The last time I posted an IMM was in July...so bear with me!

Ooh, In a Treacherous Court looks fantastic, as do a lot of the others! I hope that you enjoy them all!

I've been wanting to read TREASURES FROM THE ATTIC for awhile (had to return it to the library before I had a chance to read it), so I'll be interested to hear what you think of it. Enjoy all your books!

Wow, you had a great week! I see a couple of books that look good to me - Underdogs and Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. in particular. I hope you enjoy them all.

Christina T said...

I want to read In a Treacherous Court because I love historical fiction. I thought The Book Thief was fantastic so I am hopeful that Markus Zusak's new book will be great too.

I have The Revenant, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Great books!

Casey (The Bookish Type) said...

I've heard The Revenant is really good! I hope you enjoy it -- can't wait to see what you think!

Book Sake said...

Soooo many books and I haven't heard of any of them. Revenant sounds a little familiar, but I don't recognize the cover. Enjoy them all!!

I checked out Sweet Money, as I had never heard of Bitter Lemon Press before -- the publisher sounds very interesting, as does the book!
