Mailbox Monday April 18



It's Monday and you know what that means? Mailbox Monday! I love how we do this on Monday. It sure brightens my Monday! I love checking out everyone's mailboxes and adding books to my wish list Be sure to check out all the posts over at Passages To The Past where Amy is hosting Mailbox Monday this month. Thank you Amy! Unfortunately my mailbox looks nothing like the mailbox in the picture. My mailbox is covered in snow this morning. Snow in April..not the way I think April should be. My idea of April is daffodils, birds, green grass... not snow! Someday spring will come..I hope! Anywho, lets check out some mailboxes. It's much more fun than dealing with snow..in April.

I was a bad girl a week or so ago and placed an Amazon order. I went to order two books recommended by a friend and decided to check out the sale books. I also found two Halo books for my son in the sale section. I just can't pass up a good book bargain and all were on my wish list. I also received one book for review. I'm very excited about that!





Up first is the review book, which made a long journey from the U.K. to get to my house. I received this book from the author..thank you Rosy! I am really looking forward to reading this one. In fact I was looking at the cover this morning wishing I could transport myself to setting. I'll bet there's no snow there!


Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton

Summary from Goodreads
A warm and uplifting story of how a woman falls in love with a place and its people: a landscape, a community and a fragile way of life.

A rural idyll: that's what Catherine is seeking when she sells her house in England and moves to a tiny hamlet in the CĂ©vennes mountains. With her divorce in the past and her children grown, she is free to make a new start, and her dream is to set up in business as a seamstress. But this is a harsh and lonely place when you're no longer just here on holiday. There is French bureaucracy to contend with, not to mention the mountain weather, and the reserve of her neighbours, including the intriguing Patrick Castagnol. And that's before the arrival of Catherine's sister, Bryony..

The rest are the books I ordered and feel somewhat guilty about..somewhat. I linked them all back to Goodreads if you want to check to see the book summaries.

The Opposite of Me by Sarah Pekkanen
The Wishing Trees by John Shors
Labor Day by Joyce Maynard
At Home on Ladybug Farm by Donna Ball
The Wet Nurse's Tale by Erica Eisdorfer
Pictures Of You by Caroline Leavitt

I am now off to check out other mailboxes..a big highlight of my Monday! And watch the snow melt!

  6. Sorry about the snow. It really is too late for that. Hopefully, your mailbox will soon have the potential to be like the one you showed. LOL

    Great books. I know, it's hard not to feel guilty when we get more books when we all have so many. But we NEED them! I keep telling myself that. :-)
