Monday, Monday! What Are You Reading?


It was a great week for the Mailbox last week! Where, oh where, do I put these books, and when, oh when, can I read them??

Thanks to all of the fabulous Mailbox Monday hosts!  The Printed Page and Avis of She Reads and Reads.  A thank you to Sheila from Book Journey as well!

Here's the stack!  I received the Georgette Heyer books from the new blog Austen Authors.  It's a new site that celebrates all the Austen-inspired fiction that is out there, and I'm happy to have won their Grand Prize Giveaway in September! Still can't believe it, and it came in the mail so quickly last week!  Check out my Georgette Heyer collection!! *screams with excitement*


I also received from Erin Grace with Peachtree Publishers the superbly illustrated Martina, the Beautiful Cockroach.  From Paperbackswap, I received Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson and Rembrandt's Whore, by Sylvie Matton.

Woohoo!  What are you reading this week?

Happy Reading!

  1. Oh wow! That Heyer prize pack looks fantastic! I have only read one of her books, and it was a historical, not a romance, so I am looking forward to trying out some of those. I will be eagerly watching for your reviews of them, that way I can decide which ones to splurge on!! Happy Monday, and enjoy all your new books!

  5. Lucky you with the Georgette Heyer win! I'm collecting all of hers but most of the ones I have are the paperbacks from the 70's. Happy reading!

  9. Wow, winning that Heyer collection is better than winning the lottery! Now, about this cockroach book. You and I both know there is no such thing as a beautiful cockroach. If the author claims there is, then he/she needs to come on down our way, where you can rope and ride these little shits.

  17. Wow! What a fat, happy mailbox you have! I'm reading only what I can get my hands on these days, which is currently A Thousand Splendid Suns. But lamentably my reading time is at such a minimum these days. Working on refinding this important life balance!

  19. OMG! Georgette Heyer! THAT'S AMAZING!

    Rembrandt's Whore ... gotta look up that one too.

    The coachroach book is too cute to believe. Wow!

    Hey girl you have some good karma and this mailbox is evidence of that.

    PS send me some karma and whisper to my mailman that it's getting lonely here. ;)

  20. Congratulations on the Heyer win.

    We have many more books and other great items to give away on Austen Authors each month. If you like Jane Austen, this is the site.

    I might also put a plug in for my own website (www.rjeffers.com) and my latest interviews at "My Jane Austen Book Club." Making a comment after the interview allows you to be part of the mix to win a copy of my newest release The Phantom of Pemberley.

  21. Wow, I'm jealous of the Heyers! I've read two of hers (both as audiobooks) and really enjoyed one, the other probably would have worked better for me in printed format :-).
