Mailbox Monday, August 2, 2010


In August Mailbox Monday hosted in August by Chick Lit Loves.

All About It

"Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
If you’re new to Mailbox Monday welcome! Thank you to everyone who stops by Mailbox Monday. Whether you comment or visit I appreciate your taking the time to drop in."






First, I wanted to thank Dar at Peeking Between the Pages, as I received Linger and Shiver, by Maggie Stiefvater from her recent online giveaway. These two books were sent to me direct from Scholastic and I can't wait to get my eyes on them. LOL Thanks again Dar, I am a lucky blogger.




I received Beastologist, by Nathaniel Fludd via The Picnic Basket and I will feature this soon on my new meme, All About Children Thursday. You might even want to feature a book or two you received in your mailbox there.


I received Russian Winter, by Daphne Kalotry from Harper Collins and it looks really great. Listen to the quote of Lauren Belfer, author of A Fierce Radiance, from the jacket,
"Russian Winter is a marvel that had me canceling appointments and staying up half the night, as it swept me into a world of intrigue, poetry and romance. Set against the perfection of ballet, the hardships of life in the Soviet Union after World War II, and the anguish of families lost and found. Russian Winter reminds me of why I love to read fiction."
I don't know about you, but that makes me curious and ready to put everything aside in my life to start reading it. I can't wait.


I received The Wave, by Susan Casey from Doubleday. Of course anything about the ocean intrigues me having the sand of the shore in my shoes forever.




I'm really excited about my mailbox this week. How about you, what did you get?
