In My Mailbox 4/8/2012

In my Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren. It's a chance to share books and things we have received, purchased or won. Spring is in the air, and the weather here has been delightful. Today I celebrate my twenty-fourth wedding anniversary with my best friend and hubby, Paul. I am thankful that he understands or at least puts up with my passion for books, and for my non-stop babbling about my blog, books and cyber-peeps. This week was a busy one on the blog. I reviewed Catching Fire, Splintered and The Immortal Rules. I shared the gorgeous cover of the anthology Willful Impropriety, shared a novel about international child abduction called Chasing the Cyclone and did my first Waiting on Wednesday meme. My Six-month Celebration came to an end and the winner was Rachelle Hayes.  So without further ado, here are the lovelies I received in my mailbox this week. 

For Review from Edlewiss, HaperCollins,  Booksneeze,
Thomas Nelson, Penguin, Knopf Doubleday and author Genevieve Graham:

I want to read Eyes of Justice by Lisa Wiehl. I've read the previous one and now it seems as though something major will turn this series in a new direction..

Thanks for stopping by!

Woot! Glad you got The Weeping! I'm excited to see what you think of it AND Chris Bohjalian's book - I LOVED The Night Strangers (my first Bohjalian book) so I'm definitely looking into more of his work. I'll be looking forward to your review of both books!

I really like Lis Wiehl, although I haven't read any of her books yet, I watch her commentary all the time on the news though and she rocks.

I'll also be looking forward to your review of The Selection, I have that coming up to read as well and I'm really intrigued!

I hope you love all of your books - definitely some great reading ahead I think!

When I read the title "The Husband Hunt," I think it means something completely different to me. I envision ex-wives in camo hunting their husbands. lol
