In My Mailbox (February 6th-12th 2011)
Minding Ben by Victoria Brown (ARC) (Voice) (Unsolicited, as far as I can tell, no idea how I got this one...)
Delirium by Lauren Oliver (Harper Collins Canada)
The Spot by David Means (D&M Publishers Inc)
Invisible by Paul Auster (Picador)
Eight White Nights by Andre Aciman (Picador)
The Shaking Woman or A History of My Nerves by Siri Hustvedt (Picador)
My mailbox was (slightly) more empty than usual this week, but then Friday three awesome books from Picador arrived. I was really excited about Delirium, which I've already read and there will be a review later this month. A random thing I learned today from a friend after getting these books is that two of the authors- Auster and Hustvedt- are actually married to each other. I may have to do a battle of the sexes at some point. I was also thinking I could compare Krauss VS Foer- anyone else know any awesome married author couples?
All the books sound great and I am looking forward to reading them. The second half of this week was pretty slow reading-wise for me as I've been dealing with some health issues that make me feel pretty gross but I've got a great stack of books lined up for next week and I'm excited to dig into them.
How was your mailbox this week?
