Mailbox Monday -- August 10

Before I get started with Mailbox Monday, I want to wish my good friend Serena a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! You can send birthday wishes her way via Savvy Verse & Wit (but don't tell her I sent you LOL).

Anyway...it's time for another Mailbox Monday (a big thanks to Marcia from The Printed Page for hosting), when bookish folk spill the beans about their book addiction...er...list the titles they received in the mail, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the last week.

The review copies are trickling to a halt here at Diary of an Eccentric, which is a good thing. Believe me, there's no shortage of reading material in my house.

I received two books in the mail last week:


Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange (from Sourcebooks)

I couldn't wait to read this book, so I borrowed Serena's ARC right after she finished reading it. And the day I finished it, the mailman delivered a finished copy, which I gave to Serena in lieu of her real birthday present (which she will receive tomorrow) because she was dying for a finished copy.



Dancing With Ana by Nicole Barker (from the author)

I don't read too many YA novels, but this one about eating disorders sounds worth checking out.

What books did you welcome into your home recently?

As if I wouldn't find out about you telling people to wish me a happy birthday! LOL Thanks for the finished copy of Mr. Darcy, Vampyre! I will reread it eventually.

Hope you are having fun at the office without me.

Good week - I just read Dancing with Ana last night and loved it. I want to read Mr. Darcy, Vampyre - I keep seeing that around.

Dar said...

Oooh, I'll have to pop over and wish Serena a Happy Birthday. Both good books Anna. I loved Mr. Darcy, Vampyre. It was great. I'm supposed to be getting the other one as well. Review copies have really slowed down here as well. I want to get caught up on what I already have.

Ah ha! Serena was probably thinking she could slip through the day without being noticed! Ha! Dancing with Ana, even for the cover, is something I will need to get my hands on!

Missy said...

Diane said...

I'm reading Mr. Darcy, Vampyre. So far, it's not thrilling me. So sweet of you to give your copy to Serena! I keep my list of received books in the bedroom, so I never know what I've gotten in the mailbox, but I have Italian for Beginners by Krisin Harmel in front of me -- that's one I know I got in the mail, last week. It looks really fun!

I haven't heard of Dancing with Anna, but would be interested in how the author handles the serious subject matter.

Staci said...
