Mailbox Monday 6th December to 12th December 2010





"Mailbox Monday" is the brainchild of Marcia at The Printed Page.

Mailbox Monday is now on a blog tour. November's host was Knitting and Sundries. December's host will be Lady Q at Let Them Read Books! So be certain to stop by her blog and show her some love!

"In My Mailbox" is hosted by The Story Siren


Every week we'll post about what books we have that week (via your mailbox/library/store bought)! Everyone that agrees to participate will try to visit each other's list and leave comments! Everyone is welcome to join! You can join at anytime and you DO NOT have to participate every week.






This book is by Alison and Melissa Houtte and the description is One woman's Adventures in Vintage Clothing. With my love for op shopping (not clothes but just op shopping not knowing what gem I will unearth somewhere - an eternal optimist thats me) I grabbed this one.





This by Deanna Raybourn is a good one. I was looking for Dark Road to Darjeeling and stumbled on this. I will read whatever I can get hold of as I have said umpteen times before. Beggars cannot be choosers!






This book of course has got mixed reviews all over the blogosphere and when its like that I really want to read it. If everyone goes ga ga over it I am sometimes a bit skeptical. A good example was Wolf Hall. Why I found it tough going I cannot say but it was difficult to read!




This book by Sarah Smith I picked up mainly because I had not read anything on it and the title intrigued me.

I do hope your Mailbox is good as well.

I've been eying "C", but don't think I would like it. I hope you do.

Alligators, Old Mink and New Money sounds interesting! I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

I've heard really good things about Raybourn. I have one of her books to read one of these days.

You got a good selection of books this week :)
I think it's great that you get motivated to read something by a divide in the reviews.

Alligators, Old Mink, & New Money intrigues me...it's a great cover, and I can imagine it will be fun and quirky.

Alligators, Old Mink, & New Money ... what a catchy title! And I like vintage clothing far more than fashion.

Great books this week - all new titles to me.

I love the title of Alligators, Old Mink and New Money. Catchy!

Lady Q said...

I really want to read Raybourn's series someday! That looks like a new cover, too. You're not alone on Wolf Hall, I couldn't finish it, and I had previously read another of the author's books and really enjoyed it. Thanks for participating in Mailbox Monday! I'm so happy to be this month's host!
