Mailbox Monday December 27

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia @ The Printed Page, is on tour! This months hostess is Lady Q at Let Them Read Books. Thank you to Lady Q for hosting. Check out her Mailbox Monday posts for great recipes!

I hope everyone had a very Happy Holiday! Things were crazy and busy here so not much blogging nor reading has been done lately. Last night I was finally able to curl up with my new Nook that Santa surprised me with and read for the first time in a long time. How I missed reading. The hustle and bustle is over and I am looking forward to spending time reading and blogging. The books I received over the past two weeks. All three look very good! I am loving my Nook and have downloaded two books. I had a hard time getting it to work at first but I think it was a server problem as many were having the issue. This morning all was good in Nookland and I was able to buy a book with ease. I didn't think I would enjoy an e-reader as much as I am. I still love paper books but this is a nice addition to my library. I do need a booklight for it but I am unsure which one to get.

The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse
(received for review from G.P. Putnam's Sons)

The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan (received for review from Penguin)

The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern (received for review from Harper Collins)

A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick (ebook purchased for my Nook)

Falling Home by Karen White (also purchased for my Nook)

All books are linked to Goodreads if you wish to learn more about them.

I hope everyone has a very Happy New Year full of many good books!


  1. I think everyone got The Winter Ghosts but me and I'm so jealous! I have a Nook, too, and I love it! Thanks for linking up to Mailbox Monday! Happy reading!

  2. You must have been very good this year....enjoy your Nook!!!!

  3. I hope you enjoy your new Nook, I like mine (actually my husbands) much more than I thought I would. What a great book haul (Lady Q, I didn't get The Winter Ghosts either but I do want it).

    Happy Reading and Happy New Year.

  4. Enjoy your Nook! My hubby bought me a Sony eReader for Christmas and I'm amazed at how much I'm enjoying it as well. I'll never completely give up reading hard copies, but this is a great addition!

  5. Enjoy the Nook.

    The Amy Tan book is a new one for me so would like to see what you think of that. A Reliable Wife was for me a disappointment after the hype!

  6. Oh, I loved Falling Home...hope you do, too.

    The Book of Tomorrow looks good, too. Love that author.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  7. Your new books sound good, and the Nook looks like it could be fun.

    A Reliable Wife is on my TBR shelf, but I keep forgetting to read it. It is supposed to be very good. I bought a copy for a Christmas present for my stepdaughter's girlfriend based on the good reviews I've read. I hope she likes it.

  8. Oooh, a nook! Enjoy it and your paper books. I liked Falling Home :-)

  9. Have fun with your new baby. I've been baby-sitting my son's Kindle and love it!!!

  10. Enjoy your Nook!
    I read one of Ahern's previous books and liked it very much, and I so want to read The Winter Ghosts :)
    Hope you enjoy all your wonderful mailbox arrivals!

  11. Have fun with your new Nook! I'll be curious to see what you think of A Reliable Wife

  12. Looks like some good ones. Enjoy! And have fun with the Nook, too.

  13. WTG on the Nook! I think that everyone that received one was trying to download books at the same time! LOL! The Winter Ghosts and The Book of Tomorrow are on my review pile - they both look so good!
    Amy Tan is a fab writer; I hope you enjoy the new read!
    A Reliable Wife and Falling Home are both on my to-buy list!

    You're going to get some great reading in with all of these! Enjoy!
