Mailbox Monday (64)

Mailbox Monday is the place for bloggers to share the books they've recently added to their shelves. It was started by Marcia, who now blogs at To Be Continued..., and is hosted each month at the Officially Mailbox Monday site. The week I'm excited to share...

For Review from Virtual Author Book Tours
Cover Me Boys, I'm Going In by Keith Hirshland
This is a memoir about the author's life in sports reporting. He does specialize in golf, which I'm not actually a huge fan of watching. But I'm still excited to see a behind the scenes look at what it's like being on tv and being a sports reporter.

For Review from TLC Book Tours
When the Cypress Whispers by Yvette Manessis Corporon
This is a chick-lit type, where Greece is featured. It's about an American who escapes back to her childhood home in Greece to help herself move on from the loss of her husband.

From Paperback Swap
The Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich
I'm more excited about this one than I have been about any book in a while. It's a historical fiction about a Jewish midwife in Venice in the 16th century. Combining so many of my favorite theme to read about (Renaissance! Judaism! Babies!), I'm really hopeful that this lives up to my expectations.

From Goodreads
Nothing Sweeter by Laura Drake
Yes, this book is exactly what the cover makes it out to be. But it is about an L.A. girl who moves to the South like me, and just that gets me even more excited for it.

What did you find in your mailbox this week? And do you have a favorite book that seems to be about all encompass all the themes you enjoy reading?

While you're here, don't forget to enter my giveaway for At The River's Edge by Mariah Stewart!
