Mailbox Monday #153

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. This month’s host is the Mailbox Monday tour blog.

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.

Here’s what I received this week:

1. Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead from a friend.

2. Carry the One by Carol Anshaw from Shelf Awareness.

3. Schoolgirl by Osamu Dazai and translated by Allison Markin Powell from Caribousmom (Thanks!)

4. Irrepressible by Leslie Brody, a win from Unabridged Chick.

5. Mental_Floss: The Book: The Greatest Lists in the History of Listory edited by Ethan Trex, Will Pearson, and Mangesh Hattikudur

6. How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss for Wiggles’ Christmas gift.

7. The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss for Wiggles’ Christmas gift.

8. Curious George Pat-a-Cake by H.A. Ray for Wiggles’ Christmas gift.

What did you receive?

  2. Carry The One sounds very good! You can never go wrong with Dr. Seuss! The Grinch was a favorite in our house. Wiggles will love having her new books read to her!

  3. Great books! My favorite of the books that you received is Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! I just love it! I’m not that familiar with The Sneetches. I’m going to look it up.
    I received Carry the One, also! School girl looks very good.
    Enjoy your new books, Seren…and Wiggles’ too :o)

  4. I see Wiggles has a lot of great reading ahead of her! I love the Sneetches! Isn’t that the book with the story about the pants with nobody inside them? The Girl loved that story when she was younger!
