Mailbox Monday: September edition

After a couple of months recently where there have been huge amounts of books coming into my house, this month things have been a lot more under control! Maybe I have a chance to actually catch up a little!


That Deadman Dance by Kim Scott - When this book was awared the Miles Franklin Award I added it to my TBR list but it just didn't seem to be making it onto the library catalogue. After going to a session at Melbourne Writer's Festival feature Kim Scott, I decided that I was just going to splurge and buy it.

The Roving Party by Rohan Wilson - Rohan Wilson was featured in the same session and based on that, and also on the enthusiastic encouragement of Lisa from ANZ Litlover I decided to buy this one too!

10 Short Stories You Must Read In 2011 - This is actually a free book that I got as part of the Get Reading promotion that has been running through September.

Shadow Kin by M J Scott - I went to the launch of this book last week so I had to buy a copy so that I could get it signed!


You are my Only by Beth Kephart - This author is very popular throughout blogland but I haven't read her before so when I learned that her book was on Netgalley I jumped at the opportunity to try it out!

Mailbox Monday is on tour and for September it is being hosted at Amused by Books. Head over there to share your links, or to see what everyone else has posted about this week.

    Mary, DCMetroreader and Pam, I never used to read a lot of short stories, but this year I have been reading quite a lot of them.

    Diana, it certainly has an interesting sounding premise.

    Thanks for stopping by everyone.
