Mailbox Monday (77)

It's been a busy week of books here. One I wasn't necessarily expecting, but much appreciated nonetheless. As always, I'm linking up with Mailbox Monday to share the books I've recently added to my shelves.
Mailbox Monday
Won from Savy Verse & Wit
The Frangipani Hotel by Violet Kupersmith
From what I can tell this is a bunch of interconnected stories that take place in Vietnam. I don't really know much about it, but it does look intriguing.

From Paperback Swap
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I've already read and loved this book. But the copy I read was borrowed from a friend, and this is the type of book that you need to own. So now, just in time for the movie, I can officially say I do.

For Review from TLC Book Tours
A Triple Knot by Emma Campion
First can we take a minute to capture how pretty this cover is. And this is only an ARC of it! This is a historical fiction about Joan of Kent the niece of King Edward III. I've read a lot of English history, but not sure I can remember anything else from the court of Edward III, so I'm definitely excited for this.

Helena Rubinstein by Michele Fitoussi
I can't ever remember receiving a book unsolicited, so I was in a little disbelief when this arrived. Although it is from a marketing agency I've worked with before, I can't deny how excited I was. This is a biography of a woman who according to the cover invented beauty. She's someone I've never heard of before, but I'm definitely curious to learn more.

From Goodreads
The Saint by Tiffany Reisz
This looks to be some type of thriller, with a bit of Fifty Shades thrown in. At least that's the vibe I'm getting from it, so we'll see what it actually holds.

The Bridesmaid's Best Man by Susanna Carr
So I realize this may not go down as a literary classic, but you can't deny that it looks like a lot of fun, right?

  8. Read The Fault In Our Stars, can't wait to see the movie.

  10. I got 'The Triple Knot' too and I can't wait to read it! 'Helena Rubenstein' looks good too! Enjoy!

  11. I recently bough TFiOS, too! I can't wait to re-read it - and see the movie. The trailer looks really good.

    I bought a book off of one of those $2.99 deal emails that I signed up for but I can't remember the name of the book! I have been borrowing a lot of books from the library, though. Right now I am reading "Paris" by Edward Rutherfurd and I am really loving it.

  12. What a great mailbox! I had never seen this silver(white?) version of TFIOS, but I like it. Happy reading!

  13. Great mailbox...and what a pretty copy of TFIOS!

  14. I'll need to check out some of those books!
