Mailbox Monday ~ August 28th

Welcome 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.

This week started out fine but it was downhill from there. A routine trip to the dentist for a cleaning and an exam of a tooth that was a little sensitive turned into a root canal and serious infection by the weekend. Antibiotics and pain pills knocked me out for the last few days, and that is why I haven’t visited many blogs this past week. One would think this would give me lots of time to read, but it was just the opposite with no ability to concentrate.

I received a couple of books that I requested and a few new audio downloads.

New Arrivals

Otherworld by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller from Delacort Press.
There are no screens. There are no controls. You don’t just see and hear it–you taste, smell, and touch it too. In this new reality, there are no laws to break or rules to obey. You can live your best life. Indulge every desire. It’s a game so addictive you’ll never want it to end. Until you realize that you’re the one being played.

    Oooh, Otherworld is on my TBR. I really hope you enjoy it – I’m looking forward to reading it!

    There are only some houseplants I tend to kill – orchids and cacti. I wonder if your book covers these!

    Oh tooth problems are not fun! I have a great dentist. She is so good about my sensitivity and goes out of her way to make sure I’m always comfortable in her chair. I’m loving the look of Otherworld and the DNA book in your post. Hope this week is better for you.

    I definitely need to learn how to not kill house plants. My poor plants always die. 🙂

    ENJOY your books and reading week.
