Mailbox 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.
AND they had a nice used copy of one of my favorite books, The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende. I picked this up for one for you, dear reader friends. Would you like to give it a try? Let me know you’d like in the comments and I’ll have Gage choose a winner on Thursday.
In one of the most important and beloved Latin American works of the twentieth century, Isabel Allende weaves a luminous tapestry of three generations of the Trueba family, revealing both triumphs and tragedies. Here is patriarch Esteban, whose wild desires and political machinations are tempered only by his love for his ethereal wife, Clara, a woman touched by an otherworldly hand. Their daughter, Blanca, whose forbidden love for a man Esteban has deemed unworthy infuriates her father, yet will produce his greatest joy: his granddaughter Alba, a beautiful, ambitious girl who will lead the family and their country into a revolutionary future.
Here’s what else I picked up
Petals on the River by Kathleen Woodwiss. I picked this one up because she’s a romance author I’ve always wanted to read and then I saw that the hero’s name is GAGE! Had to have it.
Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood. I really like the quirkiness of his first book and I’m hoping for the same with this one.
Read It and Weep by Jenn McKinley. Haven’t read the series but I want to!
The Paris Affair by Teresa Grant. I admit that I picked up this one based on the cover alone.
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith. Really liked the first one so excited about this one!
Field of Prey by John Sandford. Didn’t realize I was behind on the series until I found this one!
None of these are new. Have you read any?
