Mailbox Monday #62

Marcia at The Printed Page and Kristi of The Story Siren both sponsor memes in which bloggers share what books they’ve received in the past week.  I’m going to continue calling these Mailbox Mondays, but The Story Siren also has In My Mailbox.

This is the Mailbox Monday and In My Mailbox Holiday edition!

Let’s start with these from my SantaThing!

1.   The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz

2.  Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

3.  The Vampire Diaries:  The Awakening by L.J. Smith

Next, is the book I received from Staci of Life in the Thumb, my Secret Santa:

4.  The Morganville Vampires:  Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine

As many of you know, my husband and I spent the holidays with Anna of Diary of an Eccentric‘s family, and lucky me, I got more books!

6.  Peony in Love by Lisa See

7.  Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones

8.  Learning to Breathe by Karen White

And as you know, I can’t resist buying books when I’m in the bookstore shopping for others:

9.  Under the Covers and Between the Sheets by C. Alan Joyce and Sarah Janssen

10.  Dragon House by John Shors, which I received from the author to replace the xeroxed sheets I read for my review.  Thank you!

11.  A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick, which I received unexpectedly from publisher Algonquin Books.

12.  Crossing the Bridge by Michael Baron from publisher Story Plant for review.

13.  Issue 55 of Gargoyle.


I got these at WalMart with the giftcard my in-laws sent; I figured I would continue with the vampire theme (sort of).

14.  Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

15.  Thirst No. 1 by Christopher Pike; I loved Pike as a kid and remember these books; I first read these vampire books in the library.

16.  Fallen by Lauren Kate

What did you receive in your mailbox?

Oh, before I forget.  If you’re wondering who that cute bear is up there on the tower o books, that would be the gift I got from The Girl!  The one she wanted to give to me when she bought it, rather than wait until Christmas! 

Oh, and I had Anna try an old family tradition — Apple pie topped with melted Cheddar!

    I love apple pie but have never thought of putting cheese on it. Ice cream, yes. Cheddar cheese, no.
