Mailbox Monday: A Lucky Trio


Uno, dos, tres.  Last week, I received a trio of books in the mail, won on various blogs that host numerous book giveaways.  Each of these book blogs is quite popular and well-known, maybe even famous, I'm not sure.  I won The First Husband by Laura Dave from Kathy's blog, BermudaOnion's Weblog, The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O'Melveny from Leslie's blog, Under My Apple Tree, and I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith, a World Book Night win from Vivienne's blog, Serendipity Reviews.

I love winning books, and although it may take me a while to read them, due to gargantuan to-be-read stacks, I trust that I will, eventually. 

Mailbox Monday is hosted for the month of May by Martha's Bookshelf.  What new books have you added to your shelves or stacks recently?

  4. I bought The First Husband at the Border's closing sale, and haven't gotten the chance to read it yet. It's supposed to be an amazing book, and I can't wait to get the chance. You are a very lucky girl to have won three in a row!!

  6. I haven't heard of the first two books but the second one sounds interesting! I'll look it up. I Capture the Castle is just beautiful and a must read.

  7. I recently finished reading I Capture the Castle and really enjoyed it, written from a young girl's perspective. Dodie Smith's background is also interesting too, as she wrote 101 Dalmations and owned dalmation dogs throughout her life. She lived in Malibu, Beverly Hills and Los Angeles during WWII.

    1. Eriko, I'm very excited to read this book! After I read it, we can discuss it. I didn't know Dodie Smith had written 101 Dalmations until I read that on Wikipedia.

    2. I didn't want to book/story to end... I want to find out what happened after the very last page! Too bad a sequel or continuation was never written.
