And remember to check the bottom of the post for a special giveaway to all those who link up this week.

REVIVAL:
A Folk Music Novel
by Scott Alarik

for review - I'm reading this now and really liking it - well, I'm an old folkie, so what can I say? Release date is September 15th.



SO MUCH TO SAY
Dave Matthews Band
20 Years on the Road
by Nikki Van Noy

hmmm - my mailbox is a bit musical this week! This is courtesy of Ashley at Simon & Schuster. Actually, she's keeping me very well read this summer!



THE MAP OF TIME
by Felix J. Palma

from the Atria Galley Grab - I've been lusting after this book for months

THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU
by Rose Alison

another one compliments of Atria Galley Grab (and I thought my request had been lost in the mail!)


A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES
by Deborah Harkness

a win from Felicia, the Geeky Blogger

as I told Felicia, I'm saving this one of next weekend when I'll be recovering from a minor medical procedure. I've wanted to read this one for almost a year, so it's really hard not to just dive in!

HOW I STOLE JOHNNY DEPP'S ALIEN GIRLFRIEND
by Gary Ghislain

a win from Cheryl at the Children's and Teen's Book Connection

started reading this one from a pdf with my nephew and we both love it! however, he's not crazy about the pdf format, so I was thrilled to be able to hand him the "real" thing!

Thank you to all the authors, publishers, publicists, and fellow bloggers for feeding my mailbox this week!



GIVEAWAY!!

All participants who link up are automatically entered to win one (1) copy of their choice from the following titles. I'll pick a winner on Wednesday night. (Last week's winner hasn't selected her book yet, so expect a change in the lineup of choices - besides, I'll probably add a book or two!)

THE ICING ON THE CUPCAKE by Jennifer Ross (new, unread paperback)
CRESCENDO by Becca Fitzpatrick (Advance Reader's Copy, unread)
THE UNCOUPLING by Meg Wolitzer (Advance Reader's Copy, unread)
THE MEMORY PALACE by Mira Bartok (Advance Reader's Copy, unread)

Thanks for hosting M.M. this month. You've got some great looking books. I'm oddly intrigued by the Johnny Depp title.

Great mailbox! I received a finished copy of The Map of Time, even though I had already read and reviewed the ARC; it's a GREAT book; don't let the size put you off! I recently finished both The Very Thought of You (very good) and A Discovery of Witches (also pretty darn good). Seeing your books coming in from Atria's Galley Grab gives me hope that I will soon see my requests as well! Congrats on the wins and enjoy the new reads!

I will have to look up Map of Time. The cover art looks mysterious. Crescendo sounds suspenseful.
