Welcome to Mailbox Monday! Mailbox Monday was originally created by Marcia at The Printed Page, but is now currently on tour. November's host is Julie of Knitting in Sundries. Mailbox Monday is the place where we share all of the new books that we found in our mailboxes the previous week. Be warned: it can lead to overflowing TBR piles and out-of-control wishlists!
Last week brought four new books into my home, two of which I read this week (I was like a kid in a candy store- I couldn't wait!). This week also brought another new addition into my home: high speed Internet! We live in a rural area, and for the past four years I've been dealing with dial-up Internet, but a local company recently put up a high speed tower for those in my area, and last week they came and installed it. For all of you who don't remember how unpleasant it is to be restricted by dial-up, it was almost physically painful at times. This week it has been incredibly fun to join "modern times" and I've been clicking my little heart out! It's amazing how much easier blogging can be when you're not restricted by an incredibly slow connection.
Waxed by Robert Rave, a contest win courtesy of Chick Lit Is Not Dead. I love the purple cover, and I love the fact that this is chick lit written by a man.
The Love Goddess' Cooking School, Melissa Senate's latest offering, a contest win courtesy of Chick Lit Central. I couldn't wait to read it, so I didn't! You can expect my review to post this week. On a side note, if you haven't joined Chick Lit Central's Facebook page yet, please do! When they reach 1000 members (they are at 922 members as of today) they are having an amazing contest, with a bevy of fabulous books to win, some by my favourite authors. So join now!
The Ex Boyfriend's Handbook by Matt Dunn, courtesy of Sourcebooks. I finished this one last night and I loved it so much! It was funny and witty and had a feel-good ending. Expect a review of this one soon as well.
The Year of Fog for 40% off, and I made an impulse purchase. The premise intrigued me, but for some reason I don't love the title. I'm glad that I picked this one up, and can't wait to read it.
Well, that's it for books for me! What was in your mailbox? Feel free to leave your link in the comments so that I can come and visit your mailbox.
