Mailbox Monday #108

Mailbox Mondays (click the icon at the right to check out the tour) has gone on tour since Marcia at The Printed Page passed the torch.  This month our host is Lady Q of Let Them Read Books.  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.

I didn’t receive any books this week, which is good for me.  I have a bunch I want to finish up before the end of the year, but I’d love to hear about what books you received and are excited to read.  Leave a comment about it.

Otherwise, hop over to Let Them Read Books to see what others received.


  1. Gosh I could use an empty mailbox, but I’m never disappointed when I see something in it 🙂

  2. It’s been so cold outside, it’s a good week to stay snuglled up on the couch with a good book! Thanks for stopping by Mailbox Monday! I’m so happy to be this month’s host!

  3. I had a great mailbox this week. I can appreciate quiet weeks too. Not so much pressure.

  4. I need a no new review books week or two; I just have far too many right now; even though most of them look wonderful and I can’t wait to read them. My personal TBR pile is toppling (all three of them). I’m thinking (hoping) that my next few mailboxes will be mainly the books I buy for the Christmas book boxes in the family. 🙂

    I received for review Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz from the author.

    Twenty-four-year-old Aidin, a wealthy socialite and self-proclaimed “club god,” lives a magazine life based on decadence and excess that includes drugs, sex, and gourmet food. It’s a life based on surfaces in a place where the surface is all that matters. His therapist later describes him as a materialistic drug addict bent on promiscuity with self-esteem and identity issues.One morning, after a night of heavy partying, Aidin awakes completely vacant of any sensation. He can’t feel temperature. He can’t feel pressure. He can’t feel anything. After a near-fatal stint in denial, he seeks the help of Dr. Paradies, a therapist whose methods are far from conventional. She provides him with a new addiction in the form of a life list–a litany of activities to accomplish. As Aidin completes his list, he discovers talents he never knew he possessed, such as the ability to quickly learn new languages, an IQ off the charts, and amazing physical stamina.With these new discoveries, he questions his doctor’s intentions. When Aidin digs for the truth, will he slip back into his addictive habits? Or is there truly a conspiracy underway, as he suspects? The answer forces him to make a life-altering decision.

  6. I know what you mean Serena…it can get out of control quickly!

  7. I feel you, my mailbox has been slow and that’s been a good thing, as my bookcases are overwhelmed right now. Though I did get two in this week. Happy reading! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

  12. Well, now you can focus on the tome called Matterhorn! 😉
