Marcia at The Printed Page is no longer hosting this meme at her blog, she’s now hosting the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour. This month’s home is Chick Loves Lit. Come over and check out what other bookish people had appear in their to-be-read piles, and share your new acquisitions.
See the mailbox in the picture here? It has letters, magazines, but no books. Just like mine.
I can’t actually complain, since it had more books than it could hold last week, and I have more books than I can read here at my house.
That didn’t keep me from being sad about it, in part because I wouldn’t have anything to list here.
Then I went to pick something to read on my Nook. I realized I had some books e-mailed to me (for review) that I hadn’t loaded yet, and hadn’t listed here. We’ll count the loading on my Nook as time as arrival, since I didn’t list them here when I received the e-mail:

Crazy for Love by Victoria Dahl
(I’ve read and enjoyed this one, my review should post this week)
Chloe Turner thought she was going to marry the perfect man—until her fiancé’s plane crashed. And then she got the really bad news: he’d tried to fake his own death to avoid marrying her. Now America’s most famous bridezilla (a tag she most definitely does not deserve), Chloe escapes to a remote island to avoid the paparazzi. And right next door is a man who just might be the cure for Chloe’s heartache….
A magnet for wild, complicated women, Max Sullivan is relieved to have finally found someone “normal.” Chloe is his girl-next-door fantasy come to life, and best of all, she gets him. With her, he can be himself, a treasure-hunting millionaire who desperately wants out of his sexy but reckless job. But when Chloe’s notoriety catches up with them, will their torrid romance make it to the mainland?
Sureblood by Susan Grant
Five years ago rival space pirate captains Val Blue and Dake Sureblood stole one incredible night together. But their brief, passionate history ended with the assassination of Val’s father and the condemnation of Dake’s clan. Now Val struggles to prove her mettle—to herself and to the dissenters amid her own people. Every successful raid is a boot heel ground into the burning memory of Dake Sureblood—and their secret son is a constant reminder of their shared past….
Ambushed and captured before he can clear his name, Dake Sureblood returns from a hell like no other to expose the true killer of Val’s father. But as the identity of their enemy becomes chillingly clear, the former lovers must put aside their mistrust and join forces to protect their clans and their precious son.
