Mailbox Monday

Welcome to Mailbox Monday! Each Monday we share which books we found in our mailboxes the week before, but be warned: Mailbox Monday can lead to towering TBR piles and out-of-control wish lists! This month our host is Rose City Reader. Thanks!

Last week was a great week in books for me, with lots of exciting new arrivals. In my mailbox I found:

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Her Brother's Shotgun Wedding by Noreen Riley: Love the title!

Wither by Lauren DeStefano: As I wrote about in my Sunday Salon post, this one is out of my comfort zone, but I'm excited to give it a try!

Born Under a Lucky Moon by Dana Precious: For an upcoming tour, book releasing on Feburary 8, 2011.

Walking With Elephants by Karen S. Bell: Also for an upcoming TLC book tour.

Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekkanen: I was insanely excited to find this in my mailbox after work on Friday night. I'm about halfway through, and yes, it is as good as the reviewers have been saying!

The Bird House by Kelly Simmons: A bonus in the package with Sarah Pekkanen's book. I'm excited to give it a try!

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


  1. Skipping a Beat is on my wish list - enjoy!!

  2. You've got some great sounding books here. Happy reading!

  3. The Bird House has piqued my interest :)
    And you're definitely right about that first title!
    Enjoy them all.

  4. you forgot to mention "breakfast at stephanie's." lol!
    i'm reading "skipping..." too. i can't wait to read further. :) i got "spin" last week too.
    someone posted on CLC's wall about the lucky moon book. sounds interesting.

  5. Skipping a Beat is definitely going on the wish list. I'll watch out for your review of it.

  6. A Funny Thing etc could vie for the longest title with The Guernsey Literary etc. Love it! It sounds like a cute read. The Bird House looks interesting too. Enjoy your new reads, Jonita and have a great week!

  7. I'm so jealous you got Skipping a Beat, and I'm glad to see it's so good! Enjoy the rest of your books as well.

  8. Oh, I really need to read Sarah Pekkanen's first novel before her second comes out! I've heard nothing but good things and actually met her at a Jennifer Weiner book signing in D.C. last year. She was so sweet.

  9. I received Wither as well but haven't started it yet. I really need to as I have had it for quite some time.
