Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I was a bad blogger last week, posting only twice, but The Girl's school play is this coming weekend, so she's had some long practices followed by homework, making me a very tired mom. I have been doing a lot of reading, though, so expect a bunch of reviews in the coming days.
The weather was beautiful over the weekend, and we were able to play a little basketball and enjoy a walk in the park with Serena and her husband. But now another work week has started, and it's time for another Mailbox Monday, the weekly meme hosted by Marcia from The Printed Page where book lovers share the titles they purchased, received for review, or otherwise obtained over the past week. Here's what came to my house:
Juliet by Anne Fortier, from Random House
College in a Nutskull by Anders Henriksson, from Workman Publishing. I wasn't expecting this book, so I flipped through it to see what it was about...and ended up reading it in two sittings. It was hilarious! Not sure my hubby appreciated me reading the entire book out loud, though.
Sandition by Jane Austen, a contest win from Austenprose. Thanks, Laurel Ann!
A Long Stone's Throw by Alphie McCourt, from Dawn. Thank you!
SPHDZ Book #1! (Spaceheadz) by Jon Scieszka, Shane Prigmore, and Francesco Sedita, from Simon & Schuster. Another surprise book, but The Girl is excited about this one. It's about aliens, one of which is disguised as the class hamster.
What books did you add to your shelves recently?
