Mailbox Monday #29

Mailbox Monday buttonMailbox Monday is a weekly event where we share our latest book arrivals. Join in to share your book loot and discover some new book blogs. Suko’s Notebook is the host for December, so be sure to say hi and link up!

In a week I’ll be heading to the Big Island of Hawaii for the holidays with my family. As some of you know, I lost my mom 6 months ago and this was a trip she planned to take. I think it will be relaxing and healing for all of us and we are all looking forward to it. I will be around sporadically for the next couple weeks & I hope all of you have the happiest of holidays :)

I picked up some vacation type reads (apparently they are all kissing books) and will most likely have plenty of reading time during my travels.

Won:

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys – From Philomel Books via LibraryThing Early Reviewers

Review:

Courting Greta by Ramsey Hootman – From Gallery Books via Edelweiss

Taking Chances by Molly McAdams – From William Morrow Paperbacks via Edelweiss

  10. Have a wonderful time in Hawaii. I hope it is healing for you.

    It looks like you have some great vacation reads. Opal is great, but there is a killer cliffhanger at the end. I’m very intrigued by the Ultimate New Adult Stocking Stuffer book.

    Happy holidays and Happy Reading :)

  15. Yay, Kissing Books! Princess Bride, yay!
    I read Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys last year and really liked it, so if she’s done something new, I definitely want to read it.
    Have fun in Hawaii.
