Mailbox Monday January 18

Mailbox Monday is hosted by the lovely Marcia over at The Printed Page. It's a fun meme where we post the wonderful books that have made their way into our homes over the past week.

I was very bad this week again. I hit the Barnes and Noble sale online and then hit the library sale shelves also plus I received a couple of review books.

From the library sale shelves:

1. The Runaway Jury by John Grisham (for my daughter who is on a Law and Order, CSI kick)
2. Train From Marietta by Dortothy Garlock
3. Chopping Spree by Diane Mott Davidson
4. Sticks and Scones by Diane Mott Davidson

From Barnes and Noble and the sale rack at Borders:

1. The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks(audiobook)
2. The Sweet Life by Lynn York
3. Pieces Of The Heart by Karen White
4. Mistress of Mellyn by Victoria Holt
5. Same Sweet Girls by Cassandra King
6. Mudbound by Hillary Jordan
7. Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore
8. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
9. The Girl On Legare Street by Karen White (bought used)

For Review:

1. Where The God of Love Hangs Out by Amy Bloom (a goodreads win- thanks to goodreads and Random House)
2. Fireworks Over Toccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff (Thank you St Martins Press through Shelf Awareness)

What wonderful books made their way into your home?


  1. Wow your haul would be about 3 or 4 months reading for me -- enjoy!

  2. That's a lot, lucky you! Where the God of Love Hangs Out sounds interesting. Have fun reading!

  3. Runaway Jury was one of Grisham's best imho. The movie in no way did it justice. Enjoy!
