In My Mailbox Monday, Jan 16

Seen both at Mailbox Monday -- hosted in January at At Home With Books -- and The Story Siren, my Mailbox Monday/In My Mailbox. I'm a bit zombie-ish today for some reason -- maybe a cold, or still shaking off West Coast jet lag -- so I plan to spend my day lost in a book (or two). Thankfully, I got many delicious new arrivals this week -- choices, choices! What did you get?

For Review




Sonoma Rose by Jennifer Chiaverini
Harem by Colin Falconer
Faith: A Novel by Jennifer Haigh
Gillespie and I by Jane Harris
Women and Their Gardens: A History from the Elizabethan Era to Today by Catherine Horwood
The Dispatcher by Ryan David Jahn
The Baker's Daughter by Sarah McCoy
The Technologists: A Novel by Matthew Pearl

  2. @Carrie: Normally I'd pass on a book like Faith but after all the great reviews I'd read of it from bloggers, I decided to give it a try. I'm really looking forward to it!

  17. I've heard so many positive things about Jennifer Haigh's Faith. Can't wait to read it. Also, I loved Matthew Pearl's The Dante Club..this one should be great, as well.
