Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is where we share which books made their way into our homes the previous week. Originally hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday is on tour. This month our host is Rose City Reader. Read on, but be warned: Mailbox Monday can lead to TBR mountains and out-of-control wish lists!

I'm a little (but only a little) embarrased to admit how many books made their way into my home last week, either through the mail or through the magic of eBooks. Last week's arrivals were:

Hard Copy Additions:

Breakfast at Stephanie's by Sue Margolis
This arrived in my mailbox courtesy of the wonderful Melissa A. over at Chick Lit Central: The Blog who believes in sharing the book love. Thanks Melissa!

Moonface: A True Romance by Angela Balcita
Thanks to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for sending me this one for an upcoming tour!

One Bird's Choice by Iain Reid
Once again, thanks to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for sending this to me.

The Last Will of Moira Leahy by Therese Walsh
This one arrived courtesy of the author via a contest on the I Bet We Can Make These Books Bestsellers group on Facebook.

The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
This was a contest win from the wonderful The Divining Wand blog, and Larramie was kind enough to express ship it to me when I told her how badly I wanted to read this. Thanks Larramie, I am loving it as much as you said I would!

eBook additions:

There's Cake in my Future by Kim Gruenenfelder
I bought this one with a gift card (and a 35% off coupon!) because I heard about it on Chick Lit Central and it was promptly added to my wish list. Yay! My first eBook purchase (vs. getting it for free).

Elder Wonder Comes of Age by Jaron Summers
This one was free with a coupon code, and I hope to get to it in the future. Want your own free copy? Check out my post here.

Ivory Joe by Martyn Burke
Another free download from Bev Editions. Get your own copy here!

No Cure For the Broken Hearted by Kenneth Rosenberg
This copy came courtesy of the author for review at a future date. Thank-you!

I believe that's it, and I apologize if you sent me a book this past week and I neglected to mention it. Now if only I didn't have kids, a job, and a house to clean- I would be able to read a lot faster! What was in your mailbox last week?


  1. I have read about the Weird Sisters all over the blogs and would love to get my hands on it. Your wins of The Last Will of Moira Leahy also sounds an intriguing read.

  2. weird sisters seems to be a popular one this week. Enjoy your books.

  3. You received some fun looking titles!I will be watching your blog for some of those to come up for giveaways!!! ;) Moonface and One Bird's Choise look very appealing. I started Weird Sisters last night. After being able to keep my eyes open for 20 minutes of reading time, I am already in love with that book!
    Have a great Monday....

  4. here's mine

  5. Fantastic mailbox!! I really want to read The Weird Sisters soon. Have a good week!

  6. They all look good! It'll be hard to decide which one to read first.
