Mailbox Monday #80

This week I received three wonderful books - 2 for review and 1 just to read.

For review from Amazon Vine - Next to Love by Ellen Feldman.  I particularly was interested in this book because it is set in Massachusetts during WWII.

For review from Rarebird Lit - Half Upon a Time by James Riley - I love fairytales and this is a fractured fairytale - which was always my favorite segment on the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show!  This one has a little Jack in the Beanstalk and a little Snow White for starters.

From Sourcebooks - The Man Who Loved Pride & Prejudice by Abigail Reynolds - First of all, I love this cover!  I think the colors are just beautiful - and truthfully were the first things that caught my eye.  I also tend to like modern stories about Pride and Prejudice more than the original - I previously enjoyed Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart so I can't wait to read this one.

What awesomeness arrived in your mailbox this week?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page but is now on a monthly blog tour.  For the month of August it will be held by Staci at Life in the Thumb.

  1. Next to love looks like a read I would enjoy.

    I received a copy of Exit the Actress by Priya Parmar this week

    have a good week


  2. Can't wait to see what you think of Next to Love. Such a good book -- I'm still thinking about it nearly three months later!

  3. I have Next to Love here to read too. I am really looking forward to it.

  4. I have Next to Love also and have heard it is a good one. I hope we both enjoy it.

  5. I just finished re-reading Pride and Prejudice. I really should try some of these alternate takes on it sometime but I like the original so much I'm always thinking nothing else will come close to it. :)

  6. I have The Man Who Loved P&P on my shelf but haven't read it yet. Enjoy all your reading!

  7. great books you have listed there and I think I'm going to have to add those Abigail Reynolds titles to my Kindle. I've read and enjoyed some of her other work. Have fun with your books!!!


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
