Mailbox Monday 06.25.12



Hosted this month by Burton Book Review.

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.


The scene of this entertaining story is laid in a charming English village. The plot centers around Miss Barbara Buncle, a maiden lady who is obliged to write a book because - as she naively explained - her dividends are so poor. Unfortunately, Miss Buncle has no imagination, so she writes about her friends - quite kindly and truthfully, of course, for she is a benevolent and veracious soul. The reactions of her friends to Miss Buncle's book, however, are a little surprising, and the far-reaching and unexpected results of its publication cause quite a stir.

From Sourcebooks via NetGalley. Release date: September 1st.

Ooh, that sounds like such fun! I love English village type stories. The Mapp & Lucia series by E.F. Benton is one of my all time faves.

Have a good week and enjoy all your new books!

Looks great! Reminds me a little of Maisy Dobbs, but only because of the setting :)
