Mailbox Monday



Monday Mailbox, originating from Marcia at The Printed Page, is a weekly meme hosted in December by Lady Q at Let them read books. Anyone can play along. Just leave a link to your MM at the hosting blog and follow the links to other blogs to see what books are finding their way to mailboxes around the world.

Caveat: participation in MM can cause your tbr list to grow exponentially. *Penguin at mailbox, a copyrighted image, is used with permission from Club Penguin.*

This last week was a bonanza week for me.

 Monday: The Matchmaker of Kenmare by Frank Delaney and Vixen by Jillian Larkin showed up. Both are for review  and both were received from Random House. 

Tuesday: Beautiful Disaster by Laura Spinella, received from Penguin Group (yay, penguins!) and is a book for review.


Friday:

Sea Change by Jeremy Page, won at Tutu's Two Cents blog, arrived. Thanks again, Tina!

The 3 books by Debbie Macomber, When Christmas Comes, Call Me Mrs. Miracle and The Perfect Christmas  were a win from Karen at Bookin' with Bingo. Thanks again, Karen! 



To Have and to Kill by Mary Jane Clark is from LT for review.

I don't know what's with blogger and this "new (ish) formula. I can't get the book covers in a row like I could formally. I'm sick of playing around with it - sorry for the oddball looking post.

  4. Fab mailbox, Kaye. I had to decline the Delaney so I can't wait to hear what you think. It sounds good! Enjoy all your new books. My mailbox was bare last week so no post from me. I hope you're feeling well, sending you good thoughts :-)

  13. I love the title (and cover) of "Beautiful Disaster"! Enjoy all of the new additions to the TBR. I haven't been able to get in the Christmas reading thing this year, so I have yet to read any this year yet. I may still fit one in, though!

  14. I received for review The Job by Craig Davis from the author.

    Joe B. enjoys the sweet life as a vice president at a huge conglomerate, Universal Whirligig. But along with the Big Boss' favor, he has also gained the notice of a bitter human resources manager, Luci Fernandez. Hateful of any success but her own, Luci manages to get him demoted to the mail room! A rollicking comedy of errors follows as Joe B. tries to figure out what's happened to him, and attempts to get a meeting with the Big Boss. Joe B.'s great expectations have taken a dickens of a twist. His family is forced to make a series of hard adjustments, and he gets only lame comforts from a string of the worst friends anyone could have. Will he finally track down the cause of his frustrations? Or will he only learn a lesson about what it is to be the boss, and that what is apparent is often only a shadow of a greater ongoing good? "The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to Have Happened Somewhere) is a modern parable of ancient troubles and truths.

  15. Vixen has a beautiful cover. I don't think I have read too many books in that time period either. Another one for my wish list! Enjoy!

  17. Wow, what a great mailbox Kaye. I've got Delaney's book as well- sure sounds good. Happy Reading.

  18. I haven't heard of any of your books before -- Beautiful Disaster sounds particularly intriguing...

    Blogger has been dumping me into the new editor mode every now and then (but then reverts back) and I find that when it does I can't figure out how to line up my images like I usually do either. I hope the new editor doesn't become mandatory at some point because I may have to switch to Wordpress!

  19. That's really a great batch of books! I need to read something by Debbie Macomber one of these days. Her holiday books would be perfect - maybe I'll try to work one in this month.
