Mailbox Monday- June 15th


Mailbox Monday
is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week.


My mailbox has been pretty good to me lately. Here's some of the cool goodies that came my way.

The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale
** I adore Hale as a YA author and read her Austen book...loved it!! Can't wait to get into this one.







Sacred Hearts by Sarah Dunant
**This will be my first time with this author. I love Historical Fiction so I'm hoping this won't let me down!!!








North From Calcutta by Duane Evans
**New author to me and a genre, Suspense/Terrorism/Espionage that I haven't really delved into. I'm excited to read this one too!!







Homer's Odyssey: Tales of an Eyeless Cat by Gwen Cooper
** I love animal stories....this looked intriguing and after enjoying Dewey so much I thought this one would be another great read.






What came for you?

  4. Ugh...everytime Shannon is mentioned I remind myself to get Austenland off the bottom of my stack and read it! I know I will be sorry I've waited so long. Will write this one on my TBR list.

  11. Hey Staci! My best description of steampunk - think Well's "The Time Machine". Wikipedia put it better than me: The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of "the path not taken" of such technology as dirigibles, analog computers, or digital mechanical computers (such as Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine); these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or with a presumption of functionality.

  16. What a great list of books. You know, I haven't read a Sarah Dunant yet! I think I own a copy of Birth of Venus but it's in one of those huge tbr stacks. On a scale of 1-10 how much do you think I should move it up toward the top?

  21. I can't wait to see what you think of The Actor and the HOusewife. I'm curious about that one. I got Sarah Dunant's book also. I have another one of her's on my shelf but I can't remember right now which it is.

  22. Sarah Dunant is wonderful so I hope you'll enjoy your book. I didn't even realize she had a new one coming out. I need to add it to my radar.

    I need to read a Shannon Hale book one of these days. Everyone raves about her books.

  23. In addition to the ones I mentioned on my blog, like Moonstone and Heat of the Day, I also added Rebecca since many people have picked the book to be something that stayed with them.
