Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday was started by Marcia of The Printed Page. When Marcia was ready to move on from being the weekly host, she was kind enough to set up the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour, and this month, I’m Booking It is hosting!
I got in quite a few books this week one way or the other. It seems a pretty diverse group but I'm looking forward to them.

On my Nook:
*The Wrong Kind of Blood by Declan Hughes I saw this series reviewed on a blog and decided to try one. Set in Scotland, it is on the noir side of PI work.
*Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum
Another book I saw reviewed. This one concerns family secrets in two story lines that alternate between the present in America, and the past during World War II in Nazi Germany.

In the mail:
This year I've decided to give short stories a try. this is one of the books I decided to buy. It caught my eye because of the editor, one of my favorite authors.
*Play Dead by John Levitt
The fourth book in the Dog Days urban fantasy series I've been following.
*Beaglemania by Linda O. Johnston
The cover attracted me to this book. It sounds like a fun cozy mystery that hits a soft spot in my heart, pet rescue.

From the library
Decision Points by George W. Bush
I've been wanting to read this one for a while. I borrowed it from the digital branch of my local library and I'm listening to it on my iPod. So far I'm liking it.
*Trouble Maker by Janet Evanovich
This is a graphic novel, book one in the Barnaby and Hooker series. This will be a fast read and i'm sure I'll enjoy it. Evanovich never fails to make me laugh.
The Ghost King by R.A. Salvatore
This is the third in a fantasy series. I read the first two several years ago and am just getting to this one. I've enjoyed many books by this author so expect to like this one as well.

From the used book store
*Flowers for Algernon
by Daniel Keyes I read this one years ago then saw the movie, Charly. What a touching book. I will reread it soon.
*A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
I found this used and decided to read it for my personal reading challenge which includes a section for Oprah's Book Club books.

I've read some of the fantasy books by R.A. Salvatore and thought they were very interesting. I've never read The Ghost King though. Enjoy reading!

Take a look at what's in my Mailbox this week!

I've been seeing Beaglemania around and I'm kind of curious about it. Enjoy!

I bought Those Who Save Us awhile back and pulled it out to read for a challenge this year. Hope you enjoy it, along with the rest of your books.

Loved Those who Save Us! It was one of my few 5 star reads from last year.

I read Flowers for Algernon in high school. Great story and movie.
