I’ve been neglecting my blog recently, particularly Mailbox Monday. I’ll try to get my act back together next month, but here’s a quick overview of some of the books I’ve acquired over the last month.
Books for Review
Sent by the publisher
Goodnight Tweetheart by Teresa Medeiros
I’ve reviewed this one already! Told you I’m behind on my mailbox.
The Heir by Grace Burrowes
I’ll get my review of this one up soon– I’m hoping tomorrow. We’ll see if I manage that!
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
I’m reading this one for a TLC tour in January. I jumped at the chance to participate in this tour, and I’m really looking forward to it.
Guilt by Association by Marcia Clark
From Mullholland books, I’m adding it to the pile of their books that I’m excited to start reading soon!
Jane Austen’s Birthday
Sourcebooks had a terrific celebration of Jane Austen’s birthday, offering a number of their Austen related e-books for free for the day! I downloaded most of them to my Nook!
I’ve got books to keep me listening for a long time!
Bought at the late November Audible Sale:

Scholastic Warehouse Sale
As a volunteer at my daughter’s school’s Scholastic Book Fair, I went to their Warehouse sale. I bought a large box of books. Most were for my daughter (although I’m asking her to share some with me), with some for gifts for nieces and nephews, and a couple for me alone :-).
Books I brought home that I plan to read include:
- North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley
- Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
- The Other Side of the Island by Allegra Goodman
- The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
Others looked interesting too, but those were books I bought more with me in mind than with my daughter.
One of my goals for 2011 is to get back into the swing of Mailbox Monday– both posting and visiting other blogs. For now, I hope everyone had a great book month in December, and that 2011 holds even more wonderful books.
Mailbox Monday is a weekly post where I talk about the books that have arrived in my house over the last week.
Leave a note here with what new reads came your way (and any thoughts about mine), then go there to check out some other blogs!
