Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page.

These are what I received in my mailbox last week (books I ordered from Acmamall):

1) Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer

2) The Heights by Brian James

3) The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy (I have to thank Nymeth for mentioning this book! :-) )

4) Bloody Awful by Georgia Evans (I enjoyed reading the first installment, Bloody Good, so I'm hoping this one would be as good.)

5) The Missing Ink by Karen E. Olson (I'm excited that Karen is writing another new series!)

So what books came into your house last week?

    I always think it's funny when I see Monday posts coming up on my Sunday. :) You must be a million timezones ahead of me.

    I haven't heard much about any of these books--although I do see Hansel and Gretel popping up now and then. Enjoy!


  2. Dar Says:

    I agree with Trish. I always think it's funny to read your posts a day before it's that day here. lol. Looks like you got lots of good books. I'd like to read Hansel and Gretel one of these days.

    I read The True Story of Hansel and Gretel earlier this year...it is a wonderful, clever WWII story, with plenty of hope nestled amongst the pain.


  4. Nymeth Says:

    The Heights has such a pretty cover. And I hope we both enjoy Hansel & Gretel!


  5. Melody Says:

    Trish, Dar - LOL!

    I look forward to reading Hansel and Gretel as I've read a few good reviews about that book!

    Sandy - Ah...now that you mentioned it, I remember about your review on it. :)

    Nymeth - I love the cover of The Heights! It's beautiful, isn't it? I'm sure both of us will enjoy Hansel & Gretel! :D


  6. I hope you like The True Story of Hansel and Gretel. I read it five years ago and really liked it. It's very dark and sad, but so good! And enjoy The Missing Ink. It's a great start to the author's new series.

    I've heard great things about The Heights. I can't wait to see what you think of that.

    And The True Story of Hansel and Gretel looks really interesting.


  12. Melody Says:

    Wendy - I've heard a lot of good things about The True Story of Hansel and Gretel and I can't wait to dive into it!

    I'm glad Karen has a new series! I'm sure it'd be as good as her other series.

    Alice - Yay! I'm sure I will enjoy those books. :)

    Sandra - I can't wait to read those five books! They all sound so good, I don't know what to read first! :P

    Violet & Debi - I hope you'll read The Missing Ink soon! :)

    Lady Lazarus - I know I'll enjoy reading The Heights since I liked the blurb. As for The True Story of Hansel and Gretel, I'm sure this would be another great book!


  13. Julia Says:

    Never read The True Story of Hansel and Gretel, but that seem interesting. I only know of the story told from kid's story books but not adult version. If this is what it is?

    Enjoy many of your books, Melody!


  14. Melody Says:

    Julia - I read the children's version too, so I'd expect something intriguing/interesting on this version.


  15. Iliana Says:

    Oh Melody, I hope you enjoy Karen's new book. It's really good and doesn't it have a great cover too?

    I'll be waiting for your review of Bloody Awful. I was a bit on the fence over Bloody Good but would be willing to try another so I'll just have to see what you think. Enjoy your new books!
