Mailbox Monday – May 4

mailboxIt’s Mailbox Monday, when book bloggers talk about the book titles that came to their house that week. Here’s what arrived in the Ms. Bookish household:

Mystery: Long Time No See, by Susan Isaacs. Via Bookmooch. Judith Singer (last seen in Isaacs’ Compromising Positions) is back, this time to investigate the death of Courtney Logan, former investment banker turned suburban mommy.

Memoir: A Circle of Quiet, by Madeleine L’Engle. Via Bookmooch. This is Book 1 of L’Engle’s Crosswicks Journal series. L’Engle is one of my favorite authors, and I’ve been wanting to read her Crosswicks Journal books for quite a while now.

Children’s books: And finally, I bought Books 1 to 3 of The 39 Clues series:

The Maze of Bones (Book One), by Rick Riordan
One False Note (Book Two), by Gordon Korman
The Sword Thief (Book Three), by Peter Lerangis

Mailbox Monday: An eclectic mix

It was a busy week this past week for incoming books, with, it seems like, a little bit of everything. I’ve already mentioned some of the books that arrived this past week, in last week’s Friday Finds post, so I won’t mention them again here (including some romance/chick lit – I just noticed there’s none in the list below).

Children’s Fantasy: The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey, by Trenton Lee Stewart

Paranormal mystery: Casting Spells, by Barbara Bretton

Children’s Fantasy: Savvy, by Ingrid Law

Children’s Novel: Clementine’s Letter, by Sara Pennypacker

Essays: 13 Ways of Looking at the Novel, by Jane Smiley (I had already read a copy of this from the library, and loved her list of 100 classics so much that I decided I needed my own copy)
