Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is kindly hosted by Marcia at The printed Page. Be sure to visit her site and leave your link and also visit other linked blogs. It's a lot of fun to see what surprises are lurking in mailboxes around the world! This past week I received:

  • Monday: To My Senses by Alexandrea Weis directly from the author with a very sweet note.

  • Thursday: The Suburban Dragon by Garasamo Maccagnone from the author via Bostitch.
  • Friday: The Manual of Detection by Jedediah Berry from Shelf Awareness
  • Friday: The Leisure Seeker my Michael Zadoorian I won a copy of this book from Bookin' with Bingo on the 24th and there is no way I would get this on the 27th. So where did this mysterious volume come from? I can't think of any other sites that were giving this away. Anybody have a clue? Was it ever on SA?

What did you receive this week? Was it a surprise?


  1. Wow! You did good last week! I hardly ever win anything. I think I've only won one book in the year I've been blogging. That's just sad.

  2. I had a couple surprises in the mail. Always fun. :)
    Enjoy your books!

  3. I'm a little jealous over Manual of Detection, but I really shouldn't complain!

  4. It means so much when authors take the time to write a note, doesn't it. I hope you enjoy your books.

  5. I also have to my the tbr pile. Got that one from Anna at Diary of Eccentric.

    Looks like you got a bunch of good ones. Happy Reading.

    here's my post:

  6. Enjoy.. thanks for sharing.

  7. Ooooh, great list! I bet you've already read most of them too! I have a few of them but I've had to add them to the pile for now. I look forward to reading your reviews, as always. :)

  8. Wow! Maybe Bookin With Bingo has super fast shipping and response time! A mystery to be solved! And how nice to get a book directly from the author with a note! I'm curious about the Manual of Detection -- sounds like a spy how to book or something!

    Here is my post if you are interested:

  9. Nice week - I did have a few nice surprises last week - a few cold requests came in!!

  13. I'm behind in my blog reading, but I hope to read your reviews soon. Can't wait to hear what you thought of To My Senses.
