Mailbox Monday September 5
It's Monday again! Time for another Mailbox Monday post. Mailbox Monday is the creation of Marcia from A Girl and Her Books. The meme is on tour and this month's host is Amused By Books.
I have been MIA lately in the blogging world. School started Thursday here. I always feel the need to organize and purge things when school starts. I cleaned out a closet and painted it. In the middle of a heat wave! Not smart! Hopefully things will get back to normal and I'll get some posting and blog hopping done. I'm hoping to settle into a routine this week. The heat is gone and it is 52 this morning! Everyone is complaining but not me! I think it feels good! I have had enough of heat this summer. I am ready to curl up with some hot tea and a good book!
This weeks mailbox is obnoxious. I hit Borders a week or so ago and haven't posted my finds there. The day I went the deals were not as great as they are now. Our store is in it's final 10 days now. It is so sad in the store. The employees are sad and who can blame them. There were quite a few employees there that I could always go to for suggestions or assistance. I will miss going there.
First up are my review books.
Ingenue by Jillian Larkin
Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
These both came courtesy of the publishers(scholastic Press and Delacorte Press)through Amazon Vine. I have seen so many great reviews for both of these YA series so I decided to give both series a try.
The Winters in Bloom by Lisa Tucker
I received this book courtesy of Atria's Galley Alley.
The following books are my Borders treasures.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Easy Slow Cooker Recipes by cookbook resources
Deep Down True by Juliette Fay
Life Sentences by Laura Lippman
The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
Vixen by Jillian Larkin
The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman
This book I pre-ordered and it came this week. I found Angie's blog awhile back. She is a writer and speaker who inspires me to be a better person. I adored her first book, I Will Carry You so I knew I had to read her new book as well.
What Women Fear: Walking in Faith that Transforms by Angie Smith
Whew! That is what came into my home recently. What wonderful books made their way into your home?
