Mailbox Monday & What Are You Reading

This is a weekly meme hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Join the fun and post what you got in your mailbox last week!

I got a few book things this week. Some contest wins, A couple review books, and one I bought.







Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (Bought)
















The Heretic's Daughter - Kathleen Kent (Contest win)
















The Poison Eaters - Holly Black (Library Thing Early Reviewer)
















My Soul To Take - Rachel Vincent (Contest win)
















Dear John Audiobook - Nicholas Sparks (Hachette for review)









Last but certainly not least I received two bookmarks from a contest win over at Literate Housewife. One Coraline bookmark and one WWNR (What Would Neil Read) bookmark that she made herself! I love them both!

It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finished this week.

Lots of goodies here -- I especially want to read Dear John (who can resist a Sparks tearjerker?). Happy Reading!

You had a great mailbox week and reading week.

I'm so jealous that you finished Under the Dome. I have that staring at me but haven't started it yet.

Serena said...

Great week in books...there's a lot of goodies in there I wouldn't mind snagging too!

Happy reading.

Zia said...

J.Kaye - Yup there's and ending. Strange one but there is a conclusion.

Deanna/ibeeeg said...

Great list of books.
How did you like Candor? I have been curious about that book.

Zia said...

Deanna - I enjoyed Candor. It's gotten a mixed bag of reviews. Some like, some do not.

Deanna/ibeeeg said...

Thanks Zia. I have been sitting on the fence about Candor. I think I will keep it on my to-read list but read it at a later date....a few months from now.

Happy Reading. Do you read one and listen to another during the same period?

Dear John - looks soo good, I have seen reviews for the movie, so I cant wait to see that, and his books are always awesome.

I hope you enjoy Beautiful Creatures

Ryan G said...

Just going off the covers alone, you have some hours of enjoyment ahead of you. Great books this week.

J. Kaye said...

Zia, Alright! I'll be on the lookout for your review.

Zia said...

J.Kaye - My review is here.

Marce - Yes I usually read one and listen to one at the same time.

J. Kaye said...

Zia - FYI - I am kicking myself for not seeing the review earlier.

Zia said...

J.Kaye - LOL I so understand how easy it is to get behind in blog reading.

Cat said...

Great books. I'm looking forward to reading The Heretic's Daughter.

Happy reading!

Joy said...

I just put The Road - Cormac McCarthy on reserve. I want to listen or read it before I see the movie. My son said it was great.

Michelle said...

I really want to read Dear John. I have a soft spot for Nicholas Sparks' books.

inthehammockblog said...

I'm so curious about My Soul To Take. Enjoy!

Anna said...

Looking forward to your thoughts on "Dear John." I read it when it first came out, however long ago that was. Enjoy your new books!
