(edited to add: Note To Self: It's way more fun and faster to just photograph book covers myself). ;-)

I've gotten a little behind on everything in my life lately. Mostly because I had to stop everything and deal with our home finance stuff (yeah, love taxes.) and I've had a few photo shoots lately that are taking up spare time to edit. I've gotten to photograph some really cute little kiddos though! Fun! So unfortunately, my reading average went way down for the month of April so far. And I'm also really REALLY behind in my book reviews. I think I have about 6-7 books I need to get written up.

But the books keep coming in! Which excites me, because that means I have lots of choices to pick from when I do have time to read. Maybe too many choices! Wait, you can never have too many books, right? ;-)

Here's what came in the past week or so:
From Penguin Young Readers:

Emma Jean Lazarus Fell in Love Lauren Tarshis (An ARC)
Camp Confidential:Books 1-4 by Melissa Morgan
Camp Confidential: Reunion by Melissa Morgan (An ARC)
The Summer Confidenital Series: Books 1-3 by Melissa Morgan
I'm most excited about Emma Jean Lazarus and have already requested the first one Emma Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree from the library. The Melissa Morgan books were just sent to our blog for review. They look like the might be fun summer reads. :-)

I've been using my Bookmooch points to create a library for my girls for when they get older. I really want to have a bookshelf they can go to and just browse and pick out something to read. Which is why you'll see a lot of middle grade and YA books coming to me from there. And some like Spud are just for me because I think they sound like fun.
From Bookmooch:

Whispering to Witches by Anna Dale
Spud by John van de Ruit

In a fun box sent from Allison, along with some of her yummy homemade sauces (Thanks Allison!):

Never Tell a Lie by Hallie Ephron (An ARC)
Darling Jim by Christian Moark (An ARC)
The Sam Aquillo series by Chris Knopf (3 ARCs, one published)

My TBR pile has grown exponentially in the last month or so. I have no idea how I'll get everything read. But it sure is fun to look at my bookshelf and nightstand and pick out the next thing to read!

Mailbox Monday is a weekly feature hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page. Head over there to see what other people received last week!
