Mailbox Monday

18 Apr

My mailbox looks a little like this one!Welcome to Mailbox Monday!

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books.

Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia, who is now blogging at A girl and her books. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour,

Amy at Passages to the Past is this month’s host!

As for my mailbox:

Book bought:

The Cat, the Professor and the Poison by Leann Sweeney

A cozy mystery involving cats!

I read and enjoyed the first book in the series.  I have the third for review.  I decided to buy and read the second book, and I’m really glad that I did!

My review is scheduled to post on April 26.

Books for review:

An embarrassment of riches once again from Candlewick on Brilliance Audio– several books I’ve had on my radar, hoping I had a chance to read someday, and even more that I didn’t know about previously, but that sound really good (and a few that aren’t to my tastes, although I can identify people I think will be interested).
