Mailbox Monday March 8
Mailbox Monday is a meme where you can post what books came into your home during the week. It is hosted by Marcia over at The Printed Page. Go on over and check it out. Be warned though it can lead to large TBR piles and wish lists!
Excuse the bad picture. I get one shot with the camera lately and then it dies. This mornings shot was not a good one. This week was a fun week.
1. Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce - I won two bottles of sauce from Vicki at Reading At The Beach. Vicki had a fun giveaway for the sauce and my son is the condiment king so of course I entered. It also came with a recipe pamphlet and a bookmark advertising a cookbook using the sauces. I love cookbooks so I may have to get this one. We love this sauce! Thank you Vicki and Country Bob's!
2. Heart Of The Matter by Emily Giffin
Synopsis borrowed from B&N
Tessa Russo is the mother of two young children and the wife of a renowned pediatric surgeon. Despite her own mother's warnings, Tessa has recently given up her career to focus on her family and the pursuit of domestic happiness. From the outside, she seems destined to live a charmed life.
Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother to six-year-old Charlie—a boy who has never known his father. After too many disappointments, she has given up on romance—and even to some degree, friendships—believing that it is always safer not to expect too much.
Although both women live in the same Boston suburb, the two have relatively little in common aside from a fierce love for their children. But one night, a tragic accident causes their lives to converge in ways no one could have imagined.
In alternating, pitch-perfect points of view, Emily Giffin creates a moving, luminous story of good people caught in untenable circumstances. Each being tested in ways they never thought possible. Each questioning everything they once believed. And each ultimately discovering what truly matters most.
I won this book from Goodreads First Look.
The next four books I purchase myself.
3.Singing Bird by Roisin McAuley
I saw this on someone's blog and found a used copy to buy.
4.Plain Perfect by Beth Wiseman
I received the second in this series to review so I purchased the first book in the series to read.
5.Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I have yet to read this series even though everyone raves about it.
6.Forbidden Falls by Robyn Carr
I bought this after reading about this series on a blog. I thought this was the first book in the series but alas it is not. I thought the series sounded like a nice light read.
So that is what came to my house last week. What fun books made their way into your home?
