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. :-)

From Bookmooch:
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.

Hey Holly, just wanted to comment on the Twilight series. I read the first book a while ago (back when I was pregnant with Bryce) I thought it was OK, but I wasn't in any huge hurry to read the rest of them. I knew I wanted to read them eventually, but like I said I wasn't in a hurry. Well, I got the rest of the series for my birthday and I think they are much better than the first. I'm on the last book (with 200ish pages to go). I got them last Friday, decided I had to finish up the books I got for Christmas first (I had 3 left) and then started these. So yes, since last Friday I've read almost 6 complete books (the kids were gone over the weekend). Anyway, long comment to say, that I've enjoyed the last 3 books of the series, they have really drawn me in. Still not my favorite series ever...but I've enjoyed them.
