In My Mailbox

May 2, 2010

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie.

Every week (or skipping some, depending on how frequently new books enter my life!), I’ll be posting on Sundays about what books I got, from all sources – bought, borrowed, exchanged, etc.

Review copies from HarperCollins:

  1. Almost Dead by Assaf Gavron
  2. Black Water Rising by Attica Locke
  3. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
  4. The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
  5. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
  6. The Wish Maker by Ali Sethi

    I’ve seen Wolf Hall around a lot lately and wonder how good it is. 🙂 The title definitely makes me curious. Have fun reading this weekend!

      I’ve seen it around a lot, too! It’s one of the next ones I’ll be reading, I think, now that I’ve got it in my possession.

    Wow what a great bunch of titles!! Enjoy your books – looking forward to your reviews! The Wishmaker has me intrigued 🙂

    Great books this week! Enjoy!

  • Julie May 3, 2010 at 12:11 am

    That looks like a good haul! I have heard good things about the Margaret Atwood book, thought I haven’t read it.

    • Carina May 3, 2010 at 10:52 am

      We want to do Year of the Flood at my book club, and apparently this one sort of comes before it, so I have to read it first! I love Atwood in general, so I’m sure this one will be great.

  • Pussreboots May 3, 2010 at 1:18 am

    Orxy and Crake is my favorite Atwood novel.

  • bermudaonion (Kathy) May 3, 2010 at 7:28 am

    Wow, what a great looking stack of books! Enjoy!

  • lisa (the little reader) May 3, 2010 at 8:15 am

    wow, you got some really awesome books. i want to read Wolf Hall and Lacuna, and Oryx and Crake looks good, too! gotta love Harper. 🙂

    • Carina May 3, 2010 at 10:53 am

      I think Wolf Hall is the next one of that list that I’m going to be attacking, but it’s so long! I’m going to try to get a couple smaller books in first before I dive in.

    The Wishmaker sounds intriguing.
