In my Mailbox

It's been awhile since I've done one of these, but I've had a really good week and a half. In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. So what did I get? Lets start with.....

For review:
Sweetly by Jackson Pearce: A couple of weeks had passed, and I thought if I was getting the book it would be an ARC. Imagine my surprise when I got a finished copy. Thanks to Faye at Little Brown for sending me a copy.

Call Me Irresistible by Susan Elizabeth Phillips: This one is part of a tour with TLC Book Tours. A review will posted on August 30.
Little Did I Know by Mitchell Maxwell: I'm taking part on a chapter hunt with this one in October. Stay tuned!
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan: A modern retelling of The Scarlett Letter. Sounds intriguing.
The Taste of Salt by Martha Southgate: That cover is cool. It's about a family battling addiction. I watch so much Intervention, so I can't wait to read it.
Maman's Homesick Pie by Donia Bijan: A memoir with food recipes!!!
Wanna Get Lucky? by Deborah Coonts: I know the title is suggestive, but it's a mystery novel.
Lucky Stiff by Deborah Coonts: The continuing saga!!

All the Borders are closing. *SNIFF* *SNIFF!! I've been making several trips to my local Borders. It's really hard to resist bargains where books are concerned.

Thinking in Pictures by Temple Grandin: After seeing bits and pieces of the movie, I want to read the book.
Running the Books by Avi Steinberg: A memoir written by a prison librarian, I'm intrigued.
So Much for That by Lionel Shriver: I was shocked by the ending of We Need to Talk About Kevin, so I'm wondering if this one has a shocking ending too.
What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen: This one has been stalking me every time I come into a book store or pass the book section in Walmart. I finally gave in and bought it.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: Every time I come to Borders there is one lonely copy of this book on the shelf. When I went again, there it was saying, "Buy me, buy me!!"


  1. SWEETLY! I absolutely loved that book--I hope you do, too! :)
    I'm sad about the Borders closings, too...unfortunately mine was ravaged by the time I actually got there to check out the sales!
    Happy reading!

  2. This is my first book by Jackson Pearce. I love what she does on Twitter and YouTube, so I can't wait to read. When I get a little more money, I hope to go back to Borders. But who knows, more of the stuff might be gone by then.

  3. I still haven't read Anna. Everyone who has seems to absolutely love it, and I know it's one that I need to pick up soon!

  4. Great set! So lucky that you got Anna and the FK. And Sweetly!

  5. I've tried to ignore Anna and the French Kiss, but I had to give in. I've heard so much hype, it was time to buy it.

  6. You got a nice list of books this week in your mailbox. I went to Borders last night but they didn't have really good deals yet. So I am holding out a little bit longer before I go on a shopping spree.
    I hope you like your new books,

  7. Anna and the French Kiss is SO good!
