Mailbox Monday – September 19, 2011

Here is what arrived at MY house this week:

Marisa de los Santos writes wonderful novels, so I was very excited when Chelsey from William Morrow (an imprint of Harper Collins) sent me a review copy of the author’s newest book Falling Together. The novel centers around three friends: Pen, Cat, and Will, who meet on their first day of college. Despite what seemed to be an unbreakable bond, the friendship breaks apart as they move into adulthood. Now, years later, Cat makes contact with Pen and Will requesting they all meet at their college reunion. What unfolds is a “collision of past and present” and “an emotionally resonant novel about our deepest human connections.” I have read both of Marisa de los Santos’ previous novels: Love Walked In (read my review), and Belong To Me (read my review) – both of which I enjoyed immensely. Watch for my review and a TWO BOOK GIVEAWAY on this one sometime during the first week of October.

Marisa de los Santos is an award-winning poet and bestselling author. She earned a degree in English from the University of Virginia, as well as an MFA in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College and a Ph.D in English and Creative Writing from the University of Houston. She lives in Wilmington, Delaware, with her husband, and their son and daughter. De los Santos has a website which will soon be up and active.

Did any wonderful books find their way into YOUR home this week?

  1. Oh I’ve heard really good things about her writing MD the cover on this is just really pretty. Enjoy!

  2. Falling Together sounds like one I’d enjoy; hope you do as well.

    Enjoy, I haven’t read any of her books, but this book sounds like something I’d like.

    I too enjoyed Belong to Me. This one is new.

  3. I’ve read both of her other books as well, but I didn’t know she had a new one out! Thanks for the review.

  4. I have heard great things about this author but have yet to read her. I have one of her books so I should pull it out and read it.

  5. Wonderful mailbox.I see a very interesting book.

    Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings post!

  6. I have never read anything by Marisa de los Santos but I am definitely curious. I look forward to your review!

  7. I hope you enjoy your book.

  8. I’m supposed to get a review copy of this one too — I can’t wait! I loved her first two books as well.

    Lucky you! I’m hoping to get this via Goodreads first reads. Hope you enjoy it!

  9. I loved Belong To Me and Love Walked In, so I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of de los Santos’ third novel. I’ve had the ARC since July, but have been waiting until closer to the release date to read it. I started it a couple of nights ago and hope that the confusing opening chapters are due to my own fatigue and not a failing of the author! I’ve been anticipating this release for over a year!! I’ll be anxious to see what you think.

    I’m reading that one now. I’m looking forward to Book Club Girl’s interview with her on Oct 5th.
