Mailbox Monday--Part Deux
We went away for a few days last week to visit my mom and I had the mail held. The mailman had to actually bring a box of mail to the front door there was so much! And look what was there! FOUR packages of books. (And this is not even what I was talking about in the previous Mailbox post about the REALLY exciting stuff I have coming in the mail.--Well, some of this is part of that. I still have a really cool shipment coming though.)From the Book Report:
Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult (SOOO excited about this one!)
While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky
The Sweet By and By by Todd Johnson
Those books were a Word of Mouth prize package for the beginning of March. I had Allison write in some reviews and also added a few from me so we would have more chances to win. And although, technically Allison won, she gave them my address to mail the books too! :-) Thanks for helping me win that one Allison!
From St. Martin's Press:
Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo
I'm a little puzzled by this one. I already received this as a LibraryThing Early Reviewer. So I'm not sure if there was a mix-up and they sent it again. I sent the publisher a link to my review, maybe they didn't read my email and thought I was asking for the book? Hmm....puzzling. But this is good news for all you blog readers out there! Because that means I'll be having a contest for this book in the near future! Stay tuned!
From Bethany House:
Words Unspoken by Elizabeth Musser
I received this as a March LibraryThing Early Reviewer book. I didn't know when I requested it that it is Christian Fiction. I do not usually read Christian Fiction, but I'm going to go into this one with an open mind. :-)
Magyk by Angie Sage
Suddenly Supernatural: School Spirit by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel
Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos by R. L. LaFevers
And I finally caved and purchased New Moon last week because it was on sale at Target. My friend has #3 and #4 so I figured I can always mooch #2 when I'm finished with it. I'm not in a huge hurry to continue the Twilight Saga, but this friend has gone on about the series enough to make me want to maybe read the rest of the series.
