Mailbox Monday

Dont you just love Mondays!!!! Well i sure do. I get to be a noisy neighbor (without being chastised)  and check out all the goodies that everyone got over the past week. Now Mailbox Monday is traditional hosted by Marcia@ The Printed Page however its on tour so our lovely host this month is Chick Loves Lit. If you are nosy like me (yes you are, don't try to hide it) and you want to see what everyone else got, go check out this blog.

Since i didn't participate last week i am combining my post so there;s two weeks worth of books in my mailbox.
The Long Song by Andrea Levy was sent by Amy @ The Black Sheep Dances. She recommended the book so i am giving it a try. Amy has one of the best libraries on goodreads; great variations and genres but all of them are very interesting, intellectual reads like this one and i can't wait to dig in.

Peep Show by Joshua Braff came from Algonquin Books

The Sound of Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey also came from Algonquin Books

Under the Poppy by Kathe Koja was a Librarything Early Reviewers Win.

And i won The Brooklyn Follies, Timbuktu and The Man in the Dark  by Paul Auster on twitter from Picador USA.

Thanks to everyone who sent me books over the last two weeks. I cant wait to dig in. : )

They all look good, but the two Algonquin titles really catch my eye!

Ah! I'm so jealous you got Under the Poppy. And The Long Song sounds amazing. Hope you enjoy your books! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

I just finished Small Island by A. Levy. She is a wonderful writer.

Auster's New York Trilogy has been on my TBR shelf for a long time. I keep meaning to read it but never actually do.

I am hosting a give away on Rose City Reader for one of the books that came to my mailbox last week.

Lots of Paul Auster books!! I read Travels in the Scriptorium by him and did not like it.

The Long Song was good. Enjoy all of your books.

I'll be curious to see what you think of the Snail book. It came to my attention, but I wasn't sure what I would think of it.
