Mailbox Monday ~ July 28th

hummingbird mailboxWelcome to Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia of To Be Continued, a place where readers share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.

After several years of being on tour with different blogs as the monthly host, the Mailbox Monday Blog is now the permanent home for the meme.

Something a little different this week – I have some children’s books. One was a door prize through ArmChair BEA. My new grandniece will be the recipient once I’ve reviewed it. The other children’s book was a purchase at a fundraising event.

    Remy is so cute. I hope he has a good time in his new home.

      Remy is the sweetest and friendliest little bird! He was at the fundraiser and was the star of the show. And yes, he loves his new home and his new bird friends.

    Love the cover of Can I Come Too? I think my granddaughter would love it!

      The illustrations are beautiful, I’m sure she will love it. I’ll include screenshots of some of the pages when I post a review.

    I haven’t tried James Lee Burke’s work but my sister is a big fan. I hope you love your new books!

      This will be a first for me for this author. I choose this book because it’s a stand-alone novel and not part of a series – I never like to jump in to the middle.

    Great looking books! I love Scottoline’s nonfiction as much as her fiction…Guilt Trip looks great. And I haven’t read Wendy Corsi Staub in ages…it’s time!
