Mailbox Monday – August 25, 2008

What books arrived in your mailbox this past week? Here’s what I found:

Fire in the Blood, by Irene Nemirovsky was sent to me by a dear, bookie friend who remembered my birthday.  I am very excited about this book because I read Suite Francaise in February 2007 and loved it (read my review). I have had Fire in the Blood on my wish list ever since – and now I no longer have to wish for it … Thank you, Jill!

The Grift, by Debra Ginsberg arrived from Shaye Areheart Books – a beautiful hard cover review copy. This one is about a psuedo-psychic who doesn’t believe in psychic abilities until she finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery…and suddenly is able to see the future. Ginsberg has written one other novel: Blind Submission.

Landour Days: A Writer’s Journal, by Ruskin Bond came all the way from India thanks to A Reader From India. I won this charming little book in a give-away and it looks fabulous. I’m looking forward to reading it!

Good-Bye and Amen, by Beth Gutcheon arrived on Saturday from Nicole at Authors on the Web (thank you, Nicole!). This is the sequel to Leeway Cottage which I have sitting patiently on my TBR mountain (and now it will get moved up and read sooner rather than later so that I can throw myself into this latest book). It is set on the coast of Maine, so how could I resist? Good-Bye and Amen was just released in July – have any of your read it yet?
