Mailbox Monday – June 27, 2011


This was a fantastic week! I won three audiobooks during Audiobook Week, and all three arrived this week:

The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris by David McCullough

The Girl in the Garden by Kamala Nair

Among the Missing by Morag Joss

I also received three books in print:

The Things We Cherished by Pam Jenoff – Review copy from the author

The Secret Lives of People in Love: Stories by Simon Van Booy – Review copy for tour with TLC Book Tours

The Beach Trees by Karen White – I bought this one for myself.

    I am curious about The Girl in the Garden by Kamala Nair. And Morag Joss has a new book? Yay! I had loved Half Broken Things by the author.
    Happy Reading!

      Misha – Morag Joss is a new author to me – I’m looking forward to her book – especially as it is read by one of my very favorite audiobook narrators.

    I know I said this recently about Adriana Trigiani, but Pam Jenoff is another author who I know I will love when I read her but haven’t done so yet.

      Marg – I have only read her two contemporary thrillers, so I’m looking forward to reading a different genre by her.

    Wow, some great books in that stack! I’ll look forward to your thoughts on the Jenoff book as I got that one as well 🙂

      Wendy – I’ve enjoyed the two books by Jenoff that I’ve read before, but this one is a different genre.

    Fabulous choice of books. Can’t pick a favourite as they all seem so good!

  8. Looks like you got some goodies this week, Carrie! Enjoy. 😉

  9. Great haul this week, Carrie! I finally bought myself a copy of Blackout this past week as my library copy is several days overdue (and I can’t renew it). I’m looking forward to our read-along!

      Avis – I can’t wait for Blackout, either! I just ordered a copy of All Clear, in case I want to read it immediately after like everyone says I’ll want to. Maybe we can do an August read-along of that one!

    I also received The Things We Cherished. Hope you enjoy The Beach Trees as much as I did!
