Mailbox Monday -- December 7

Happy Monday!  It's a cold morning in my neck of the woods, having received the first snowfall over the weekend.  But talk of books always warms me up, and today marks another installment of Mailbox Monday.  Marcia from The Printed Page hosts this weekly meme, with book lovers taking note of the books they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained in the past week.  Here are the books that were added to my shelves:

Don't Know Where, Don't Know When (The Snipesville Chronicles Book 1) by Annette Laing, from the author

I was clearing out my bookshelves the other day and found Peace Like a River. I have had it for quite some time and totally forgot about it but it seems like it is making the rounds again.

You had a great week! The only book we got in common is The Glass Room. Enjoy!

All of these books look wonderful. I have read "Night" Reading about his life is beyond words. He's a very brave, compassionate man.

Suko said...

What a bounty!
Enjoy!

Toni said...

Very nice Mailbox. I'd love to read Peace Like a River. A one year reading slump has left me with so many must reads. Enjoy your books.

It was freezing here but now it's back in the 60s. I read Night in high school and from I remember I really liked it. Looks like lots of good books, happy reading!

Oh! Make sure I find out what you think about the Snipesville books! =) (I just subscribed to your blog so I can find out for myself but still!)

And thanks for the link up re: Franklin & Winston!

Well I've read The Heretic's Daughter and really liked it.
But I'm very excited that you received a Lansens - she is my all time fav author!

HI Anna - we got our first snow too and today is 10 degrees. Blah!

You got some good books. We are reviewing The Heretics Daughter at my blog on Dec 20th. Feel free to join in. :)

I loved Peace Like a River and Heretics Daughter. I posted reviews for both. I have read Night..profound and inspiring. Hope you love your books.

Anna said...

Thank you all for stopping by my mailbox! I've already read "Night" so look forward to my review next week (I hope...I seem to be behind these days because of work and all the holiday preparations).
