Mailbox Monday #86

It’s been a very crazy week, but I did receive a couple of books in the mail.  I hope everyone had a great weekend.

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

Here’s what I received:

1.  Plain Kate by Erin Bow for review in September from Scholastic.

2.  Safe From the Sea by Peter Geye for review in October from Unbridled Books.

3.  Bon Jovi:  When We Were Beautiful by Bon Jovi and The Circle CD, which I won at auction for Book Blogger Convention.

What did you receive?

    • I had no idea it was coming with a CD too. I thought it was just a book with their signatures…I got a surprise bonus.

  2. I had not heard of Safe From The Sea but after checking out your link it is going on my wish list. It sounds good! I’m off to think about the wonderful, dreamy Bon Jovi book….Enjoy!
