Mailbox Monday, July 2

Still dragging a little but was quite heartened to return from my work conference to a huge pile of new arrivals. Hooray! It was my birthday last week as well so that made things especially sweet.

So here it is, this week's Mailbox Monday (hosted in July at Mrs. Q: Book Addict). As usual, click on a cover to learn more about the book (link will automatically open in a new tab/window).  What did you get?  Have any of these?

For Review

















Comments

  1. I've got the other Brian Aldiss collection to read...but it's 4 books in 1 so don't know where I'm going to find the time. I've also got The Forrests.

    1. Ellie -- my thoughts exactly -- this has three volumes in one so it'll take some time! The Forrests looks v good -- sad, I suspect -- but good!

  2. You always get some great-sounding books in your mailbox!

    I have Cascade to read and review and just reviewed The Thread. Miss Buncle's Book is new to me - must investigate!

    1. Miss Buncle's Book is a Sourcebooks reissue -- originally written in the 1930s -- it's the first of a series, I believe -- I'm super jazzed about it. The cover is so adorable!

      Will look for your review of The Thread -- it sounds intense/good!

    1. I know! I'm v keen on The Art Forger, which is about a famous unsolved art theft of a local Boston museum, but it doesn't come out until the end of the year so I really shouldn't rush to read it now!

  5. The Bay of Foxes looks good so I'll be on the lookout for your review of it. I'm on the Miss Me When Your Gone tour as well. Hope you have a great week.

  10. Ahhh, that Cascade cover is absolutely amazing! Of course, I'm obsessed with waterfalls . . . so I guess it's no shock that I'm captivated. Adding this to my wishlist. Enjoy all your reads!

  12. Welcome Home! It's so nice to see you posting again! This looks like a wonderful collection of books. Telegraph Avenue, The Island and The Bay of Foxes sound particularly good. I received "Flight from Berlin" too and I'm looking forward to reading it.

    Enjoy & Happy Reading, Audra!

  14. Happy belated birthday!

    What a lovely stack of books! I hope you enjoy all of them :)

  15. I'll be reading Miss You When I'm Gone along "with" you, and I've always wanted to read Miss Buncle's Book. Even the cover is compelling to me! (I've only seen it before as a grey Persephone book, which is attractive enough. ;)

  16. Ooooh, these all look good but, man, I adore the cover of Cascade. How artsy and surreal!

  17. What a stash!! Happy Belated Birthday, btw!

  18. Goodness(!) ... Trying to take in this cornucopia is making me dizzy. I hardly know where to click first in order to find out more. Drool...

  19. Umm, I meant to add, Happy Belated Birthday, Audra! I hope your new year will be filled to the brim with beauty, joy, togetherness, and all kinds of rewarding adventures :-)
