In My Mailbox Monday (Mar 21)

In My Mailbox is a weekly event exploring the books I found in my mailbox and is hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren and was inspired by Alea @ Pop Culture Junkie. To join in, please visit Kristi's blog!

Mailbox Mondays is a weekly event hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page. To join, please visit her blog!

As I forgot to write my post last week, I'll give you a run-down of what I got during the last two weeks. Therefore the list will be a bit longer and without pictures.

Double Fault: A Novel by Lionel Shriver - I got this for the THIB 20 Minute Book Club Challenge and am reading it right now. It is my first book by Lionel Shriver and so far I really enjoy it.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, which I bought for my online book club. We'll be reading it in April, so it is on my very, very short stack and does not fall in my general rule to read older books first.

Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale is another book for the THIB 20 Minute Book Club Challenge. I hope I can read this in time so I can call in and discuss along with Nicole, Kate and whoever else calls in.

My Ridiculous, Romantic Obsessions by Becca Wilhite - and here I admit right out: I've already finished it! It was so cute and I absolutely love the cover. I enjoyed it a lot.

Megillat Esther by J.T. Waldman. I'm curious about this as it is the Book of Esther in graphic novel form.

Hunted (House of Night Novels) by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast - I have the first four and as I somehow rush through these books and only had one left, I ordered this one to have one more in stock, just in case!

The 19th Wife: A Novel by David Ebershoff is a book I won from the wonderful Wendy. I first heard about The 19th Wife in a Books on the Nightstand podcast and I hope to read this sooner rather than later!


  1. MRRO was totally cute! I've heard great things about TKR, too.

    Happy reading!

  2. I want to read my ridiculous romantic obsessions too! enjoy!

  3. Awesome books! I hope you like Hunted, I couldn't get into that series after the first two books.

    Here's what I got this week:
    I hope you have a great week!

  4. I haven't read Kite Runner, but I've heard good things about it. Enjoy your books!

  5. The 19th Wife is so good - I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  6. I loved the Kite Runner. One of my favorite books. Khaled Hosseini is a very talented author. My Ridiculous Romantic Obsessions sounds like a fantastic book. I am definitely adding that to my TBR list. Flowers From the Storm also looks promising although it isn't the type of book I usually read. I hope you enjoy all your books!

  7. Great books. I love the House of Night books and can't wait for the newest one. I have The 19th Wife on my want-to-read list so I need to check that one out and get it read.

  8. The Kite Runner was really good, I'm sure you'll like it.

  9. I hope you enjoy your new books. I hope your enjoy The Kite Runner, I loved it!

  12. I have been wanting to read The 19th Wife also. Enjoy all your new books!

  13. You had a great week! Happy reading. My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  14. You've got a lot of great looking books! I read "The Kite Runner" and can't wait to hear what you think about it.

    Here's mine for this week.

  15. Thanks, everyone.

    I already read MRRO and loved it! It's a cute, fun book and I hope to read Becca Wilhite's other book as well.

    And The Kite Runner is on my very, very short stack, as I mentioned for the online book club.

    Maybe I'll keep The 19th Wife for the flight to NYC for BEA, who knows?
