Mail Box Monday

I have seen on various blogs people talking about the books they are getting in the mail. I don’t review (officially) very many books so it is a real treat when I get some books in the mail.

I thought it would be fun to celebrate that fact. I have been wanting to put some pictures of my books on the blog for a while, but all I have is a really crappy webcam. So, you are just going to have to suffer.

I was lucky enough to have Chelsea send me six books.

Chelsea sent me a copy of our January young adult book club pick so that I would be able to participate.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson has a beautiful cover and I am very excited to read it. The chat for this book will be on Dec. 29th. Feel free to contact me for more information or check out Chelsea’s blog.

I have been told I will really enjoy this book and now I am trying to decide whether to jump right into it or wait until closer to the chat to read it.

I really love talking about books in a group setting. I love that Chelsea will be giving away a copy of next month’s book to one of the chat participants.

I have been trying to collect all the Printz winners and finalists for my personal collection. I don’t have very many but thanks to Chelsea I have added two more to the pile. Monster by Walter Dean Myers has been on my wishlist for a long time. It is great to have it in my hands so I can get it read.

The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing will be an interesting read. I really enjoyed M.T. Anderson’s book Feed but this book looks completely different. I am definitely curious about it.

The Big Empty, The Center of the Universe, and Sixtyfive Roses were also included.

Did any of these book interest you?


  1. You are so lucky to get book in the mail. I always have to go out and buy them. Then I never want to let them go. I have one room, filled with books on shelves, and stacked in boxes. Surprisingly though I know where each book is. I do re-read a few books from time to time.

  2. Finding books in the mailbox is such a treat, isn't it? I found one in mine today which came as a complete surprise. :-)

    Looks like you have some good reading ahead of you! Enjoy your books.

  3. Your blog is very interesting and I love the books books and more books.

  4. I have Sixty-Five Roses on my shelf because my mother-in-law insisted I should read it; at this moment I can't even remember what it's about, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you thought of it.

    And I've read The Big Empty. It was a pretty easy read, not as complicated as I would've liked (but it is just the beginning of a series). My thoughts when I finished it:
