Mailbox Monday

Welcome to Mailbox Monday! Each week we share which books we found in our mailboxes, but be warned: Mailbox Monday can lead to towering TBR piles and out-of-control wish lists (as I can personally attest to). Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page and is currently on tour. Our host for February is Library of Clean Reads. Thanks Laura!

Last week brought four new books into my house, and I'm pretty excited about each and every one of them.


First to arrive was A Girl Like You by Gemma Burgess. This one has been on my wish list for a while: if you were to sum up my biggest reading weakness in three words they would be "British Chick Lit". I just can't resist! I'm almost done this one already and I can assure you that it didn't disappoint.



Next to arrive were two motivational books by Richard Fast. 29 Days...to Your Perfect Weight (written with Michele Bertolin) and 29 Days...to Your Life Without Cigarettes. Both include access to the accompanying online program, and I can tell you that just from reading the introduction to the book about weight loss that it will be incredibly helpful. This isn't a program that you embark on when you want to lose weight for a temporary period of time, but rather one that you follow when you want to make lifelong changes for a healthier you, which is exactly what I'm looking for. If you would like to read more about my weight loss journey (I'm at the very beginning of what I hope will be some positive changes in my life), I'll be blogging about it here.


My final arrival last week was a copy of The Liberation of Alice Love by Abby McDonald. I won't be able to resist this story about a woman whose identity is stolen for long!

That's what was in my mailbox last week- what was in yours?

  5. I'll be anxious to hear about your weight loss journey -- and you know I'll be cheering you on, too! :) We can do it. It's all about dedication and better overall choices overall, I think!

    The Liberation of Alice Love arrived for me, too -- can't wait to read it! Definitely sounds fun, minus the creepy identity-theft aspect of it all.

  10. I need to read more British chick lit. I used to read tons of it, then just Kinsella and now I love Jill Mansell. Guess I'll look to you for recommendations. :) Enjoy your new books!
