Mailbox Monday

First of all, happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends! Hubby, kiddos, and I spent the weekend bouncing from one household to the next, celebrating Turkey Day. We enjoyed the extra time with our family, and we're looking forward to spending today doing a whole lot of nothing (Edited to add: Nevermind doing nothing! Hubby developed a wicked eye infection overnight and we spent the morning at the Urgent Care clinic and at the pharmacy. We're home now, with eye drops and antibiotics and hoping that it clears up soon.)

Now, welcome to Mailbox Monday! Originally created by Marcia at The Printed Page, Mailbox Monday is on tour and is being hosted this month by Avis at She Reads and Reads. Each week we share what we found in our mailboxes, but be warned: MM can lead to towering TBR piles and out-of-control wishlists!

Two new books found their way into my mailbox last week, one contest win and one review copy.

First to arrive was a copy of A Scattered Life by Karen McQuestion, a win courtesy of The Divining Wand.

Next to arrive was a copy of Moonlight in Odessa by Janet Skielson Charles. Not only was it signed and sent all the way from France, but I even got a copy with a UK cover! Given my love of all things from across the pond, I was thrilled.

That's what was in my mailbox last week and I can't wait to read both of these. What books did you find in yours?


  1. Ooh, how exciting! I have a copy of Moonlight in Odessa on its way to me, too, but I doubt I'll get the cool UK cover. Love it!

  2. I have A Scattered Life but haven't read it yet. I've read good things about it!

  3. Stopping by from She Reads and Reads' post for Mailbox Monday.

    Have a great week.

    Stop by my blog if you like.

    Enjoy your books.

  4. Happy belated Thanksgiving to you in Canada. Thanks for sharing these! I would especially like to check out A Scattered Life. My mailbox find is a non-fiction book by Jeff Herten, M.D. called, "The Sobering Truth." This book chronicles the devastating physical effects of alcohol very well with the doctor's personal testimony. I highly recommend this one.

  5. Both books look great. Have a good week.

  6. Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you! I'm jealous of all the foods you've been eating, although I can't really enjoy it now with my current strep throat! :-( I haven't been enjoying many books lately either. I'm so focused on my own cookbook right now that nothing else is happening. Hopefully it will all be worth it though when I'm done and selling them just before Christmas!

    I'm glad you and the family are doing well. Just wanted to say hi and that I was thinking of you!

  7. These both sound good! Happy reading!
