Mailbox Monday (I'm the August Host)

photo courtesy
Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that
came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. 
Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

I'm so so excited to be hosting Mailbox Monday for the month of August! Thanks to Marcia for creating one of my favorite memes ever and for trusting fellow bloggers like myself to host it every month. I look forward to visiting each and every blogger that stops by on Mondays. I love peeking into your world and seeing what lovely books showed up for you to read. I will be running a giveaway for each week where I will enter the numbers from Mr. Linky into random.org and whatever number comes up I will notifiy that reader and they can then choose from my grab bag of books that I currently have accumulated!! I will be adding to the choices as August winds down. Let's have some fun!!!!!


SpyCatcher-unsolicited from William Morrow
Sister- Amazon Vine review copy (I'm so very excited about this one!!!)
Pretty- unsolicited from Plume


Don't forget to leave me a comment too...I love reading them!

  18. If I had my act together I would do this meme more.... I do like seeing what everyone received. It's a great way to see what the publishers are hoping will trend well (creating buzz).

    Have a great week!
