In My Mailbox Monday (17)

In My Mailbox (IMM) was started by The Story Siren a few years back, and is a great way for bloggers to give the books they are reading (or are planning to read) a quick mention.  I had a pretty decent week of both reading and receiving.  Look for some pretty awesome reviews this week, and don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY for an audio copy of Gabrielle Zevin's latest (fantastic) work, All These Things I've Done.  Click HERE for details...

Thanks for visiting my blog! I adore comments since they make me feel special and loved, just please don't spam me. I'm not interested in vacation offers, millions of dollars from Nigeria, or anything not book related!

Also, this is an award-free blog. As flattered as I am, I just don't have time. I'm happy if I have time to post all of my reviews on time, and am a momma of three to boot, but I appreciate the thoughts! XO
