Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Each week we share which books made their ways into our homes the previous weeks. Be warned: Mailbox Monday can lead to some serious book envy, huge wish lists and toppling TBR piles!
Jessica Z by Shawn Klomparens. I'll be reading Jessica Z as part of the initiative started by Catherine McKenzie (author of Spin), who wants to explore if readers can make a book a bestseller. More information about the interesting initiative can be found here on Goodreads. Just by purchasing these books or by joining the Goodreads group, you could win a Kindle!
Two Years, No Rain. I will also be reading this book as part of the Make a Book a Bestseller initiative. I'm debating which one to read first, because they both look great, but I think that I may start with his debut book (Jessica Z).
Beach Week by Susan Coll arrived, a win from Sarah Pekkanen's Facebook page (if you're not already a fan of Sarah Pekkanen on Facebook, she's always giving away awesome prizes!). There is a blurb on the back calling Beach Week "hysterically funny", so I can't wait to read this one at the beach. Then again, it's a signed copy, so maybe it's too pretty to take to the beach! Regardless, I'll be reading it somewhere this summer!
After You by Julie Buxbaum. I was thrilled to win this from Manic Mommy's blog- I've read both of Julie Buxbaum's books (my review of The Opposite of Love, and my review of After You) and I loved both of them. I can't wait to re-read this one, and then to put it with my (small, but still pretty cool) collection of signed books. (Note: I couldn't find a picture of the cover of the paperback that I received, so I'm using a picture of the hardcover's cover).
Take a Chance on Me (okay, am I the only one who hears the ABBA song whenever I say that title?). I'm a Jill Mansell-aholic, so of course I was thrilled to get this one from Sourcebooks.
That's it for me for last week- which books arrived in your mailbox??
You are not the only one. That song popped into my head immediately!ReplyDelete
You got some great books this week. About one a week is the most I can handle:)
I bought Jessica Z last week. It took a few weeks to arrive at the store, but it's home with me now. Am looking forward to checking it out.ReplyDelete
I'm going to look up Beach Week!ReplyDelete
I was humming the song as soon as I saw the title! All of your books look like book I might enjoy. Enjoy all your new books!ReplyDelete
