Mailbox Monday, August 6

I can't believe the weekend is over (already!). Not long enough. Some lovely arrivals, however, made things slightly sweeter!

This week's Mailbox Monday is hosted in August at 5 Minutes for Books. 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?

  4. Some neat looking covers here! I have only read The London Train, did not love it but it was pretty good.

    1. Jenny -- I suspect I'll actually hate the London Train, but got it during Harper's $.99 ebook sale so I figured it wouldn't be a huge loss if I did indeed hate it.

  5. Looks as though we'll both be reading Siren of Paris

  6. So many of these titles are NEW to me, I feel like I'm missing out on a lot by less blogging this summer..:(

    1. This is me radically cutting down on my accepted reviews, too -- I'd been so overwhelmed this last year, it's crazy! When I face a week sans new ARCs, I bet I'll be crying.

  10. Oh, yay -- The London Train! I absolutely loved that book, but it seems like I'm in the minority, which saddens me. It was longlisted for the Orange Prize years ago (though I don't think it advanced?), so someone else appreciated it . . . hope you're in my company on this one! I've sung its praises many times over the years, but I think everyone thinks I'm crazy. Heh.

    1. Meg -- you *are* the lone voice defending this one! :) I've heard most folks didn't like it but I'm curious about it nonetheless. I plan to read it in the fall -- it looks like a fast one and seems autumnal-y moody!

  11. I got The Bookie's son, and a few others, but some of the books you got this week look fantastic! Very nice mailbox today, Audra! I hope that you have a lot of time to read them and enjoy them. I will be checking back to see your opinions on all of them!

  12. We have The Ruins of Lace and The Siren of Paris in common. Can't wait for your thoughts!

  13. I also bought The London Train and The Great Lover...I LOVE that sale! ;)
