Mailbox Monday is a weekly event started by Marcia, and is now hosted on a blog rotation. 5 Minutes For Books is the host for the month of August.
I had a fantastic week!
I wanted Every Day by David Levithan as soon as I heard about it. I am not sure where it came from 100% but I did email the publisher requesting a copy and as Random House was the return address it looks like that email paid off. Possibly from a giveaway entry though. Either way I am thrilled!
I saw The Fine Color of Rust on a lot of blogs last week and I got lucky with this one as it came I think via a request on Shelf Awareness. Super pleased to read this Australian authors Australia based story. Sounds like a great read.
Thank You For Your Cooperation was one that I saw on Jonathan’s blog recently reviewed. ( Love his blog! ) I checked and it was available on PaperBackSwap so I requested. Glad to have the chance to use up my credits.
I won some amazon GC’s and placed an order. Everville was the only one that arrived for this week’s MM more should come Monday or Tuesday. It’s Clive Barker ( reason enough to get it ) and one of the few I haven’t read. Looking forward to it as I’m a huge fan.
The following books I purchased for $1 each at my local Dollar Tree I about had a cow in the store when I saw what they were selling for a dollar.
Great finds all of them. I’m thrilled by these finds.
