Mailbox Monday, May 18, 2009

What can I really say about this week's mailbox? There are some incredible books in there to say the least. Many of them actually look terrific for book clubs too.

I hope you enjoy The Girl Who Stopped Swimming!!! I always get nervous when people go by my recommendations. ;)

Jill said...

Wow...what a great week! The Girl Who Stopped Swimming wasn't my favorite of Jackson's three novels (it's a bit of a departure for her), but I did enjoy it. Looking forward to your thoughts!

You had a great week. I got 2 of the same books. I agree with Jill's assessment of The Girl Who Stopped Swimming.

Nice haul! Sadly my mailbox was silent, but I think my TBR pile needed a week off anyway =)

Melanie said...

Great list of books. Blue Boy sounds intersting, I'll need to fins myself a copy. I also got a copy of The Middle Place and can't wait to start reading.

Kristen said...

I'm waiting on Old World Mother New World Daughter too. Maybe today?!

Jo-Jo said...

Wow...you had an amazing week! Enjoy all of your new books.

Ti said...

I am participating in the Blog Talk show for The Middle Place too but haven't received the book yet.

Dar said...

Wow, what a great week in books! I'll be mailing out your package tomorrow. Today is a holiday here.

Callista said...

Wow! Good thing they didn't all come in one day or they would've come in a truckload! LOL.

Mary said...

Great list of books. I read The Girl Who Stopped Swimming a week or two ago and liked it. Hope you do too. I'm doing the BCG The Middle Place as well. Reading it now and enjoying it.

You have a great list of books. I've read other Jackson books, but not this one. I do have it in audio, I just haven't gotten to it yet.

Sanctuary of Outcasts looks fascinating and I am looking forward to review that one myself.

Serena said...

Kristi said...

Wow - You had an excellent week! Lots of variety too!

You're going to need to buy a house for the sole purpose of housing all your books if you weeks keep up like this!

You always have a great list of books! Happy reading!
