Mailbox Monday, Oct 8

A very book-full week which means an extra big Mailbox Monday this week. (Hosted in October at Bermudaonion.) A wide range of genres and themes, and gorgeous, alluring cover art. As always, click on a cover to learn more; will open up in a new tab/window.

What did you get?

Thanks to Workaday Reads!



Thanks to Picador Book Club on Facebook!

Purchased/Gifted



Completely random gift from my mother-in-law, who so loved the audiobook of this she wanted me to read it immediately. NOW.



Consolation prize as Mo Willems' event at the Cambridge Public Library was flat out packed and I decided to give up my seat to a parent and child as my wife and the kid we were babysitting got a seat.  (Seemed silly for a childless adult to have a much needed seat!)  As a treat, they bought me a book -- signed by Mo himself!

  1. Wow, so many good books! I really want to read Don't Judge a Book by its Lover! By the way, Marcia has Mr. Linky up at the Mailbox Monday blog - I'm the backup after this month.

  13. An incredible amount of books in a single week! (Although I guess I'm careful not to add mine up. I never participate in this meme!) I listened to River of Smoke on audio (excellent!) and your post has reminded me I never got Sea of Poppies.

  17. The Aviator's Wife and (of course) the Jane Austen book caught my eye. Happy reading!

  18. Hmm -- The Aviator's Wife is definitely intriguing! I clicked through and saw it's being compared to The Paris Wife, which I'm reading now. I think I can get behind the "famous couples revealed" fiction trend that's happening now!
