Mailbox Monday: I'm Back!

I'm back! My family had a fabulous vacation in Ohio, Massachusetts, and New York, to see family and some friends.

While away, I read--and thoroughly enjoyed--The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees, the book I won on Kristi's blog, peetswea. In Cambridge, MA, we stopped by The Coop, Harvard's bookstore. Even though I didn't buy anything, it was wonderful to visit this bookstore and browse for a few minutes.


When we returned home to California, I was excited to find three new books in the mail, a novel and two memoirs. I received Whiter Than Snowby Sandra Dallas from St. Martin's Press, Not That Kind of Girlby Carlene Bauer from Harper Perennial for a TLC book tour, and What We Have by Amy Boesky from Gotham Books, also for an upcoming TLC book tour.



Mailbox Monday, hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page, is one of my favorite memes. What new books have you gotten recently, by mail or from elsewhere?
