Mailbox Monday-July 19


Thanks to Marcia of The Printed Page for hosting the Mailbox Monday Meme that has us list the books that we received last week. You can go to her blog to see what everyone else got last week or to play along.  Here is what was in my mailbox:



Private by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro (audiobook)

Backseat Saints by Joshilyn Jackson (audiobook)


Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English by Natasha Solomons (I also received some shortbread cookies and a nice recipe from the author!)


Labor Day by Joyce Maynard


Finny by Justin Kramon
And I recieved an order from Amazon:
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Rooftops of Tehran by Mahbod Seraji

The Painter from Shanghai by Jennifer Cody Epstein

And then I purchased from the bookstore:


The Garden of Ruth by Eva Etzioni-Halevy

Well I'm thinking this is enough to keep me busy for quite some time!  The only one that really was a surprise was the Mr. Rosenblum book.  I'm not sure if I registered to win this one but I don't think I requested a review copy.  It does have the Reagan Arthur imprint though, so I am confident that it will be an engaging read.
