Musings on Monday / In My Mailbox

I’m finding out that keeping up a blog is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be.  Its almost like having a part-time job! But its a fun one though.  I’m really excited about several events that are coming up, and I’ve got a lot of books for review that look to be pretty good too. 

So, on to In My Mailbox! This is a weekly posting hosted by The Story Siren where you can show off the different books that you’ve received – gifts, review books, books you’ve bought, etc.

I also received a Barnes and Nobles gift card from my friend Cristina of Alaskan Book Cafe. She shouldn’t have, but I really appreciate it. Please check out her site, as she’s trying to build up followers.

    You have a nice list of books in your mailbox this week. Wowza, Night Walker has a nice cover. I think I will look it up and add it to my list.
    Happy Reading,

  4. Definitely check it out while its on sale!!! Did you see my post on Friday about the cheap Kindle books? That's why I bought it.

    I saw your post. I'd already started doing my own Musings before I saw that one, but maybe next week I'll participate in it too. I like the idea of In My Mailbox to kind of spotlight books I may not get to anytime soon lol.

    Oh, did you notice that badge in my post? ;)

  5. That cover is pretty! Its what caught my eye. Hope its good. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Thanks! Unfortunately I can't make myself stop buying books lol! I can't pass up great sales! I already had Succubus Blues and Red Headed Stepchild in paperback, but haven't read them yet. Might as well pick them up cheap for Kindle too though. :D

    It was something I wanted to do that gave me pleasure too.;)
    I want to get the Red-Headed Stepchild

    Happy reading!
