Mailbox Monday, Sept 24

This week's (early) Mailbox Monday (hosted in September at BookNAround) is a diverse and interesting collection of arrivals. The 2013 releases are starting to come in -- kind of crazy to think that the new year is approaching!

  1. Great selection as usual! Interested to see that there is a new Claire Messud book- I enjoyed her last one from few years ago.

    1. Messud is totally new to me -- but the premise really intrigued me so I'm delighted I got a copy. I think this one is a 2013 release so I'm not picking it up any time soon.

  2. We got a few of the same titles. I adore the cover of Shoggoths in Bloom.

  4. Shoggoths in Bloom has such a great cover...lets hope the pages offer something just as great. Darcy Goes to War is one Anna has that I hope to borrow....and I got some of the others in your list too.

  8. Some gorgeous sounding (and looking titles) there. I was just looking at The Woman Upstairs on Edelweiss the other day too, sounds intriguing. Enjoy!

  9. Some wonderful books here. The Galle Road book piqued my interest as I knew it had to have a Sri Lankan setting. Interesting!

  10. So when I saw the cover for " Girl on the Cliff" I was like c'mon that's the same type of cover I'm seeing all over lately.. but heh, at least THIS ONE fits the title, LOL so I will let it slide.
    You always get a zillion good looking books. I am looking forward to your thoughts on Frozen, that looks like a fantastic premise but seemed to fall short according to other reviews. Here's Monday's post.

  15. The Girl on the Cliff! WANT. I loved The Orchid House so much, though I know a lot of people didn't. Hope you find me lots of wonderful new books to read.

  17. I finished Blackberry Winter a few days ago. I have to write the review up though and it may be another day or two. So much going on.
    I just got The Dinner and I also got The Lost Art of Mixing just now.
