Mailbox Monday

Thanks to Marcia for hosting. It's been a busy week for my mailbox. Bookmooch brought me Francine River's The Last Sin Eater all the way from the Phillipines. It brought me Lisa Kleypas' Devil in Winter and Again the Magic from closer to home.

The Catholic Company's review program sent me The Book of Life, a retelling of the New Testament. Their product page is here.

You may have noticed a new button on my sidebar, for Tiber Reviews. The Tiber refers to the Tiber river in Rome, and as you may have gathered reading this blog, I'm a Roman Catholic. Anyway, the Tiber Review program sent me Following Mary to Jesus, a guide to discovering the importance of Mary in our lives. You can see the product page for it here.

I got two books for First Wildcards tours: Morningsong and What the Bayou Saw.

Hatchette Books sent me two romance novels for book tours. They are Knight of Desire and My Forbidden Desire (which will be the first paranormal romance I've ever read).

This summer our vacation is going to be pretty close to home, but I can dream of foreign travel, right? I got Passeggiata--Strolling Through Italy from the author, G.G. Husak, via Bostik. FSB Associates sent me a Reader's Digest travel book--Off the Beaten Path which gave me some ideas of things to do near here. I can hardly wait for vacation. FSB also sent me Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success.

For a Blog Tour on June 24, I've got Worth a Thousand Words which is about a photographer who has life in focus--but then everything becomes a blur. Can she trust God to work it out?

Amy at Phenix and Phenix sent me Perseverance: Twenty Stories of college-aged cancer survivors. Kara sent me Fiction which is a novel about a priest who journeys deep into the harsh forest with romantic notions of converting the fierce Oquanato cannibals to Christianity, but his heroic sense of mission clashes with the farcical antics of sophisticated savages, whose beliefs originate from a peculiar source--a source that rattles Daniel into an introspective, yet dubious narrative (from back cover)Shelby sent me Chicken Soup for the Soul Living Catholic Faith.

My family thinks this book reviewing hobby is getting me ridiculous amounts of mail. I just think its fun! So does my youngest. She got Jack Hanna's The Wackiest, Weirdest, Wildest Animals as part of the Thomas Nelson book bloggers program.

As is usually the case, if I've already reviewed any of these, you can click the book title above and the hyperlink will take you to my review. Happy reading!
