I’m Hosting Mailbox Monday #149

First, I would like to congratulate (Vicki) on winning Waking by Ron Rash from the last Mailbox Monday giveaway.

Stay tuned for the next giveaway later on in the post, but for now, let’s get to this week’s post.

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at A Girl and Her Books, formerly The Printed Page passed the torch. Thanks to Amused by Books for hosting last month.

As host for this month, I have a couple giveaways planned, but mostly its about sharing books and the love of reading, so I hope in addition to leaving your post links in Mr. Linky that you’ll peek around Savvy Verse & Wit.

Kristi of The Story Siren continues to sponsor her In My Mailbox meme.

Both of these memes allow bloggers to share what books they receive in the mail or through other means over the past week.

Just be warned that these posts can increase your TBR piles and wish lists.

I didn’t receive anything this week, but please share what you received and enter the giveaway below:

Now, for the giveaway for the week.  I’m holding an U.S. resident giveaway for Lost Edens by Jamie Patterson.  Deadline to enter is Oct. 29, 2011.

About the Book:

For Jamie Patterson, the end of her marriage is signaled by betrayal and abandonment. When estranged husband Ben asks to live with Jamie again, she ignores her instincts, her family’s concern, and her friends’ doubts and sets about making a perfect home in a California beach town.

What follows in 33-year-old Patterson’s debut reads more like a mystery (or a horror story) than an account of a relationship ruptured by infidelity. As Jamie’s carefully titrated efforts walk a tightrope between wishful fantasy and cruel reality, we watch: enraptured, enraged, and endeared by this fearless yet fragile young woman who must end one way of life to forge a new one.
