Mailbox Monday #5

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Martha from reviews from Martha's Bookshelf this month. This meme allows bloggers to showcase the new books they have received over the last week. Warning: this meme can definitely lead to book envy!

This week I have also decided to participate in two new memes. The first is Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews and the second is The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Stop by and take a look!

  11. I have a copy of Calico Joe on the way to my mailbox as well. I hope you enjoy reading On Celestial Music. The essay style really lends itself to being read in short bursts, so you may consider reading a chapter in between other novels.

    I have a couple giveaways going on at the blog that my interest you. Particularly, The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O'Melveny seems like something you would enjoy.

    1. Hi Evan! I forgot to thank the bloggers from the giveaways I won, sorry! I got Celestial Music as you can see and I might take your advice on reading it in spurts. I'd seen that you were reading The Book of Madness and Cures and was wondering if you were going to do a giveaway. :) I'm doing my first giveaway now! The Underside of Joy by Sere Prince Halverson. Soooo good!

    1. I pre-ordered Insurgent but the delivery service couldn't find our house so it didn't get here until two or three days after the release date. I haven't had time to read it yet anyways. I hope you enjoy it when you get it!
