I'm actually on the ball this week and doing a Mailbox Monday ON Monday!! Woohoo!

Here's what actually came in the mail:

I requested Cowboys & Aliens from Harper Collins because I am dying to see the movie and didn't know it was a graphic novel! I soaked it up the day it came and will review it soon!

Domestic Violets from Harper Collins - heard great reviews and my husband is snagging it to read next.

The Graveyard Book - I won this over at Underneath the Juniper Tree: The new face of children's literature - If you haven't checked them out
Then come back and read my review. I love love this book.  I actually won a crazy beautiful limited edition copy (pictures posted on my review) but I wanted a copy that I could re-read and then read to my little guy when he is older.

From the library book sale.  Yeah, before you judge - I had to return A Moveable Feast (review coming soon) so I just made sure we did the return at a library with a good book sale room.  My husband's patience with me is astounding.

Lulu in Marrakech - Diane Johnson
Lucrezia Borgia - Sarah Bradford
Bluebird or, the Invention of Happiness - Sheila Kohler

The 7 Stages of Motherhood - Ann Pleshette Murphy
The Gentleman Poet: A novel of love, danger, and Shakespeare's The Tempest - Kathryn Johnson
My Mother's Lovers - Christopher Hope

That's it for now!!  Have you read any of these??  Thoughts??
