In My Mailbox is a weekly book blogger meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren that let’s bloggers showcase any books they’ve received and/or purchased over the last week. Make sure you stop by her blog to check it out and add your name to the linky!



This Week

Storytime: I received an email from HarperCollins two weeks ago, telling me I should have received a book and would I be able to read and review it?  I scratched my head.  I hadn’t received any books in a couple of weeks from anyone, so did one of my neighbors steal it?  Was it left at the front office and they didn’t notify me?  I wrote back asking for more clarification.  But I didn’t hear back. The next day, my roommate brings in a UPS notice with just my last name and the next delivery date.  He found it by our mail bin, but it was days old.  I didn’t connect the two and thought the UPS guy just wrote the wrong date.  Fast forward a week and I decided to look up the tracking on this notice, because I have been hoping for another package of books to show up from the Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Con and I was crossing my fingers this was it.  UPS showed a bunch of hoohah about wrong addresses and it was at their delivery center, so after a phone call and some digging around, I was off to pick it up. To my surprise, it was not a bunch of books, but one single tiny package requiring my signature, so once I had it in my hot little hands, I tore the packaging open and….the mystery of the HarperCollins book was solved!

So how perfect is this?  After reading The Selection and commenting how much I enjoyed the romance aspect of the story, I said I wanted to dabble in some straight romance.  Well here we go!

For review


Thanks, HarperCollins!

Isn’t this interesting? I think I automatically trust people who have books in their hand, or whom I know read. Which makes, like, no sense. I also immediately judge their intelligence. Don’t read? Must not be smart. Do read? Genius! =P


What inspires you this week?

Jennifer is a bona fide book nerd. She thinks "bookworm" sounds gross and secretly gains pleasure at the pained looks her husband often shoots at her personal library. She collects books like the Duggar family collects kids, and began waiting for her Hogwarts letter at the tender age of 33.

  1. It’s not only you. For me, I immediately connect to people when I know they read books specially those that I’ve read as well. It gives us a common ground and breaks the ice instantly. Me meeting another person who is crazy about books as well seldom happens, though. 🙂
