In My Mailbox is a meme that I picked up from The Story Siren's blog. It's where we share the new books that we've gotten for that week with our readers. These books could be from the library, the store, or from the writers/publishers for review. Whatever the reason, I will share my new books every Sunday!
From the Library
I belong to the website Goodreads and I love looking at their listopias, which are lists that will put books into certain categories, like Best Book of 2011. All of these books I recently got from the library were in lists about thier covers and how great they were. Now looking at these, they look like they would be REALLY good books (if you're one to actually judge a book by its cover). So I reserved them and really really hope that they do end up being as good as their covers look!
Saved From Selling
Now these books are probably the total opposite when it comes to content, but they do have one thing in common: my mom was going to get rid of them. I know! How could someone even think about getting rid of their books? She just had a bag sitting at the top of the steps full of books she was going to give to her work book sale. So, when she wasn't around, I dug through it and pulled out these two books. I don't know all of the drama revolving around the credibility of Three Cups Of Tea, but it sounded interesting to me. And I love romance, so of course I picked up Tempting the Highlander. Let's just hope my mom doesn't notice these are missing!
From the Author
I got this book in pdf form from Bonnie Lamer because I had read the first chapter of her newest book and really liked it! She only writes ebooks and since I don't have an ereader (yet), I didn't know how I would get to read one of her books! I emailed her asking if I could review one for her and she emailed back the next day with the pdf of this book! I was so excited and even though I have to read it on my computer, I can't wait to see how it is! I will definitely be posting a review when I read it!
