Mailbox Monday – May 12

mmb-300x282Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

It’s been over a month since I participated so I have a few things (and probably more than a few that I forgot already).  Before Easter, this wonderful surprise arrived from Cheryl & Co.  I definitely like to receive free books, but maybe yummy cookies just as much 🙂  Thank you to the authors who sent the cute cookie.


I pre-ordered the new Christopher Moore book so that I could get the special signed edition.  It’s a beautiful book.

I picked up these at local bookstores from the clearance shelves, all for a dollar or two.




Oh, I almost forgot that I received The Shadow Year by Hannah Richell from She Reads.  I’m reading it now and really liking it.

So, what arrived in your mailbox this week?

    I’m reading The Serpent of Venice too. It’s entertaining especially with all the references to characters in Shakespeare’s plays – King Lear’s court jester and Lear’s daughter Cordelia; Othello and Iago, Portia from The Merchant of Venice. I am guessing there will be more characters later on in the book.

    I actually did receive a book in the mail this past week! It’s such a rare occurrence these days. 🙂 It’s a mystery set in Africa, the second in a series. I had bought the third book at the book festival only to come home and realize I didn’t have the second. I finally got around to ordering it since I couldn’t find it at the local bookstores.

    I hope you enjoy your new books!
