Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is currently hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Each week we share what books we got in our mailboxes last week, but be warned: Mailbox Monday can lead to some serious book envy and out-of-control wishlists!

This past week I received not one, but TWO books that were on my wishlist. It was a pretty exciting! I love receiving books that I've been lusting after. Funnily enough, all three of the books that I received last week arrived on the same day, Wednesday, although all three came courtesy of different couriers. One came in my actual mailbox, Fed Ex delivered one, and UPS delivered the other one.

The first book to arrive was All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins, courtesy of Julie at FSB Associates. I've never actually read anything by her, but was pleasantly surprised by the multitude of positive reviews and comments on Goodreads. I'm looking forward to curling up with this one in the backyard- it looks like a great summer afternoon read.

Second to arrive was Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City, courtesy of April at Sourcebooks. I have to admit that I've been lusting after this one ever since I finished reading Holly's Inbox and realized that a second one would be released. If you haven't had a chance to read one yet, you definitely should. It's all about an office worker named Holly Denham, but is written entirely through electronic communication (e-mail, instant messaging, etc.) and is a really fast and fun chick lit read.

The last to arrive was Love in Mid Air by Kim Wright, courtesy of the author. I tried to win this one several times when this book was on blog tour, but wasn't quite lucky enough. I added it to my wish list, and you can imagine how excited I was to get an e-mail from Kim Wright herself asking if I would be interested in reviewing it. Um, yeah!

This past week I also picked up two books from the library, one of which I have had on hold for a while (my library is getting much, much better at ordering women's fiction, which makes me very happy!). So, through the library I got Seven Year Switch by Claire Cook and The Bright Side of Disaster by Katherine Center.

That's it for me in books for last week! What was in your mailbox?


  1. Wow - you got some great books this week. I love Kristan Higgins and can't wait to get my hands on All I Ever looks really good. I've never read the Holly books, but will have to check them out as they look really good.

    I loved Seven Year Switch - all of Claire Cook's books are great.

    Enjoy all your books!

  2. You got some great books, so you should be in for a great week of reading! I hope they all live up to your expectations.

  3. Great books! My review for the Kristan Higgins book will be up this week.

  4. Nice week for your mailbox! Came via Marcia's meme.

    Here's my MM:

  12. All I Ever Wanted sounds good! I don't think I have read any books by that author either. I may have to look into it. Enjoy!
