Mailbox Monday

Another Monday rolls around, and it's time to check out what came in my mailbox. This week I received three new books, which I'm excited to get started on.

The Magician's Book: A Skeptic's Adventures in Narnia by Laura Miller

I've loved Narnia for as long as I can remember, so I'm interested to read this author's conflict between her love for the series and her distate for organized religion.

The Gates of Trevalyan by Jacqueline Cook

I got this one through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program, and it sounds great. I've seen it compared to Eugenia Price's Georgia trilogy, which I loved when I was in high school, so I'm interested to see how it compares.

The Perfect Man by Naeem Murr

This has been on my "You have to read this!" list for years, so when I saw it on a bookswapping site, I grabbed it.

Stop by and visit Marcia at The Printed Page to see more Mailbox Monday posts, or maybe leave one of your own!

I enjoyed Eugenia Price's books too when I was in high school.

I'm hoping to get my hands on a copy of The Magician's Book too. Reading through the Narnia series is a family tradition around here. It just sounds so interesting.

Elizabeth, I received The Gates of Trevalyan too and couldn't figure out why! I forgot it was an ER book.

Thank you for stopping by the 'mailbox' this week. I, too, have the Jacquelyn Cook novel. I loaded the 1st book in the trilogy, Sunrise, on the Kindle to read on vacation.
