In My Mailbox

Thank you to Kristi from Story Siren who hosts this wonderful meme.  After being out of town for twelve days the mailbox was a little overloaded.  Here is what hit my mailbox for the last two weeks:

I love historical fiction and this read due out to the public on March 16th!

Fun looking cover – a crafty idea of a book!

I am really excited to get a look at this book.  This is all about learning to live with half of what we do now.

Sweet looking cover and my guess is with this author, also a sweet read.

This book looks to be an interesting look into Christian music and the way it is perceived.  Coming from a church that plays very modern Christian music – I am interested in this book.

Gah!  Look what hit my mailbox!  The missing Lola book and not one – but two copies!  Can you say “giveaway?”  I am so excited for this one!

This book is total cover love for me!

At first look I didn’t think this book would be for me – but reading more into it I see it is filled with interesting facts and I look forward to learning something with this book.

I am so looking forward to this one!  17 CD’s on this audio!  YOWZA!!!

The Icing On The Cupcake looks and sounds great!  And how fun is this?  They sent an apron with this book!

And this is just another example why I just adore fellow book bloggers!  How sweet is this?  Julie H sees that I have an interest in this book, discovers she has two and sends me one.  What a surprise this was in my mailbox!  Thank you Julie!

Fun secrets of successful people make this book up.  And yup – two books means a giveaway!

John and Staci Eldredge are both authors I have read before.  I have completed this review here.

I am not the biggest sports fan in the world but I do like facts and this book with CD sounds like a great read!

Yes!  Crazy School is here!  And I have a giveaway going on for this book here.

This looks like a good read.

So there is my mailbox for the past two weeks.  What bookish things came in yours?

    What a haul you got. Going out of town can create lots of “catch-up” work, huh?

    Have fun reading!

    • Hi Julie J – I am excited to read Lola, it was part of a blog tour but the book never arrived for me. Now it is here so I still have the review to do. I am excited as the author has been so sweet to me!

      Thanks again for the book! LOVE IT! 🙂

    • Thanks Natalie – Happy Valentines Day to you too! 🙂 It was a travel day for me so another holiday I almost forgot about. 🙂

  10. Oh wow, these are all lovely books! And there’s a lot of them. Ooh, Crazy School seems interesting. Happy reading! 😉

    • Thanks Bluestocking for popping on over 🙂 I am going to visit blogs later tonight after The Amazing race! 🙂

  11. WOW!! I want your mailbox! All of those look very interesting! How were you able to get so many publishers interested in sending your arcs? *bows to you* 🙂

    • Hi Misty, I think mostly you prove yourself as blogger. It took me quite a few months to establish relationships with publishers and authors and that is a good think because jumping in with loads of book offers from the start is not something I would recommend.

      After a while when they seen my writing and my audience they came to me. I still have to be choosy in my reading – there are so many wonderful books out there. 🙂

  12. Good Heavens! You are going to have to find an extra week or two to add to the year so you can read all of these. There are some really good books there. There are a couple of the non-fiction ones I’d like to read.

  13. Whoa – that’s a ton of books. I WANT THAT GILMAN! Did you get 2 of that one? heehee

  14. What a great stash of loot! I’m putting several, including Hear No Evil, on my TBR list! Thanks! 🙂
