Still Life With Elephant by Judy Reene Singer from Bookmooch

I'm expecting a lightweight read here compared to my usual but hey-there's an elephant in it.
What did you get that's got you excited?


  1. You've got some great ARCs there. I especially am interested in the Allende. :)

  2. looks like a great bunch of books

  3. You got a bunch of great looking books. I can't wait to see what you think of Now You See Him.

  4. Yeah, Sandra, you can't go wrong with elephants! They all look good. The epistolary memoir sounds good particularly.Enjoy your week. My mailbox is

  5. I've been curious about Sum of Our Days. I've liked her novels.

  6. Wow you got some great books this week. Thanks for stopping by. I agree its nice to see who you are talking to. I love putting a face to a blog.

    As you already know mine is posted.

  7. You've got a great list of books!
    I'll be looking forward to your reviews.

  8. I am really interested to know what you think of the Unsworth. I read Losing Nelson and thought it was a great read -- creative, entertaining, memorable.

    Sacred Hunger, for which Unsworth won the Booker Prize in 1992, is on my TBR shelf. If I like it as much as I did Losing Nelson, then he is going on my list of favorite (if underappreciated) authors.

  9. I have land of marvels waiting to be read, also. The Isabel Allende looks very interesting.

  10. What a good haul. I look forward to reading your reviews of all of these books!

  11. Hi Sandra...
    Thanks for the lovely note. Are you ok???? Is there anything that I can do?

  12. The Allende is very appealling looking. I do love epistolary novels. And of course you can't go wrong with elephants!

  13. Wow lots of ARCS and quite a few international type books too. Happy Reading.

  14. Great list of books! I also have The Age of Orphans in my TBR pile.

  15. Ooh, I didn't know Isabel Allende had another book out! I love her books! Happy reading!

  16. Good ARCs. I read and reviewed was excellent.

  17. I'm nodding along with everyone else who's excited about Isabel Allende's new book. I'll have to pick it up, and will definitely tune in to the interview on BCG.

    My Mailbox Monday is here

  18. These sound good. I look forward to your reviews. Happy reading!

    Diary of an Eccentric

  19. Looks like you've received quite a few historical novels. :)
